Debunking the Myths: Cloud HA and DR

|

You cannot protect business-critical applications in a public or private cloud with a cluster. To provide high availability for a physical deployment, you typically use Windows Server Failover Clusters (WSFC) and a shared storage device, such a SAN. But, public clouds, such as Amazon EC2 and Windows Azure have no concept of a cluster-aware shared storage device. You can provide high availability protection for Windows applications in a cloud simply by adding #SANLess cluster software and configuring a WSFC environment. The #SANLess software synchronizes local storage in the cloud through real-time, block level replication, providing applications with immediate access to current data in the event of a failover.

How Artificial Intelligence Helps in Health Care

Article | April 14, 2020

Artificial intelligence has disrupted different spheres of our lives and a number of industries. It has already become commonplace to such an extent that we sometimes aren’t even aware that we’re using the benefits of this advanced technology. For example, every time Amazon recommends a product you might be interested in, or you ask Alexa to order some food online, it’s AI at work. But apart from these very practical use cases that make our lives easier, AI has also revolutionized health care, and together with its subsets machine learning (ML), natural language processing (NLP), and others, it will continue to evolve and establish itself as a critical component of this industry.

AI VERSUS COVID-19 : A SOLDIER WE DID NOT KNOW WE NEED

Article | April 14, 2020

Coronavirus, COVID-19, is the talk of the town over weeks now if not months. The pandemic nightmare continues to terrorize on a global scale. It is bizarre to believe that bustling shopping malls, house full PVR halls, the crowd at Starbucks phase into Mexican Drug Ghost-towns. As of March 23, 2020, more than 349,000 people have contracted the novel coronavirus and at least 15,308 have died, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University. Although the documented cases in terms of total recovery are at 100,165, the number of causalities by Coronavirus is larger than SARS (2002-20040 and Bird Flu of 2013, and is slowly closing to the total deaths in Swine Flu (2009-2010) i.e. 18,036.

How do HD maps support autonomous driving safety?

Article | April 14, 2020

Are self-driving cars safe? As the automotive industry moves towards higher levels of automation, it’s important for the answer to this question to always be yes. At TomTom, it’s our vision to create a safe, connected and autonomous world – and a big role in making autonomous driving safer is played by ADAS and HD maps. Maps – ADAS and HD – are one of the four pillars of autonomous driving. Together with onboard sensors, driving policy and actuators, they form the technology that enables automated and autonomous driving. HD maps specifically improve localization to centimeter-level accuracy and sensor perception, which leads to safer path planning by automated driving systems.
