This is the second of two newsletters that is focused on the impact that cloud computing is having on application delivery. With that objective in mind, this newsletter will look at the pros and cons of cloud balancing. Cloud balancing refers to routing service requests across multiple data centers based on myriad criteria. Since cloud balancing involves one or more corporate data centers and one or more public cloud data centers, cloud balancing is an example of hybrid cloud computing.
Like it or not, consumer electronics are becoming an integral part of the corporate IT infrastructure. This has never been more critical than it is right now in the adoption of “smart phones,” pads, and tablets. In fact, it is really no longer appropriate to think of a phone as a telephony device. Rather, it’s a computer – and in some cases, a pretty darn powerful computer – with voice running as one of the many applications.
Editor’s Note: The SDN Journey is a series of video tutorials and blog posts by networking industry luminary Jim Metzler designed to help end-users with SDN adoption. We will be posting new content every couple of weeks, both as blog posts and video tutorials–check the SDN Journey Channel page regularly to see the latest updates. The software-defined networking (SDN) controller is clearly a critical component of an SDN.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
