Thanks again to those who joined us for last week’s webinar, "Windows

recording of last week's webinar is now available to watch at your
We had a lot of good questions from our attendees during the Q&A portion of
the webinar, which are summarized below.
Q: How do you determine when to use an HA solution vs. a DR solution?
When it comes to availability vs. recovery, the most important question to
ask is what are your recovery time objectives (RTO)? What is the amount of
time your application can afford to be down? If the applications have strict
requirements, then you want an availability solution. Disaster recovery is
data replication often times with a failover capability, not availability.
For critical applications, this may not be sufficient.

In the last 6 months at least, I have been blogging on many topics but with
one central theme, I believe mobility is key to enterprise companies, not

Today June 17, is the day that iPhone OS 3.0 is available to the masses for
download and I'm predicting upgrade fever will be the phrase for today and
the next few weeks.
On May 6th 2009, after a few rapid cycles, iPhone OS 3.0 Beta 5 was released
for general consumption, still within the iPhone Developer Program and under
NDA. Though the big news that accompanied it, was that Apple would no longer
be accepting any iPhone or iPod touch applications that were not compatible
with iPhone OS 3.0.To quote Apple's email... "Beginning today, all
submissions to the App Store ... (more)
Today was the first day of SYS-CON's iPhone Developer Summit, in the
Roosevelt Hote in NYC... and I'm pleased to report that the first day ROCKED!
We had an average of 65+ attendees in the 5 sessions today, concentrating &
listening to our technical presenters. Some attendees were already iPhone
Developers, some newbie's and some just here to understand what the
excitement is all about for developing for this cool device.
So basically a real cross section, which makes for a exciting conference!
I'm sure they wre not disappointed, as the first presenter to kick off the
conference ... (more)

developers and continuous build integration. These customers found that a
centralized server or even a proxy-server architecture was unable to
effectively support agile software development with Subversion.
Agile development’s primary objective is the frequent delivery... (more)
