Enterprise hybrid cloud adoption is rising. It’s a trend that prompts vendors that serve enterprise IT to respond with hybrid cloud “in a box” solutions. In a previous post, I squared-off two such offerings—Microsoft’s Azure Stack vs. VMware’s Cloud on AWS (VMC on AWS). I made the comparison based on services and delivery model. Much was yet to be disclosed at that time by either vendor on pricing.
“Data Tsunami” is a trite expression meant to convey to enterprise IT a sense or impending doom. If you as an IT executive fail to manage it, unnamed bad things will happen – like maybe you’ll drown? But the Tsunami is here and now and so too is enterprise IT. They keep their ships afloat—precisely because they’ve come up with the means to manage. One of those coping mechanisms is a technology called Object Storage. IT deals with two general categories of data: structured and unstructured.
It’s the first day of school after the winter holidays and as we prepare to open the new year, 350 boys, faculty and staff and a number of parents have taken their seats in Ellison Hall at San Antonio Academy for the morning convocation we call chapel. The holidays have been fun; we enjoyed a more laid-back, relaxed schedule, spent more quality time with our families, and even received gifts to celebrate the season.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
