Bimodal IT, SDN & IoT: 5 paramount trends hitting data centres in 2016



  • Emerson said that these edge facilities, or neighbourhood data centres, will support the larger data centres providing low-latency content and applications to users or data processing and logic for IoT networks.
  • Reams of data will pour into data centres as IoT becomes more widely adopted, but data will not be the only changing factor impacting the industry.
  • To answer this, data centres will need to find a common language in which devices can interact.
  • According to Emerson, cloud could get more complex as data centre servers are still running below their optimum capacity.
  • The company said the solution will enable new levels of visibility, control and automation by creating interconnectivity across data centre systems.

MASSIVE DELAY IN LEGAL PROCEEDINGS CRITCISED



  • This was not a public enquiry into a war, a plane crash or a complicated corporate legal case.
  • This is a tawdry saga that has wasted time and money, and only served to exacerbate the deep, deep pain and loss felt by a family.
  • The impact on families and all those involved in serious incidents is devastating.
  • The construction trades union UCATT has expressed concern that criminal proceedings, arising from the death of an electrician working on a demolition site in August 2007, have taken over 8 years to conclude (November 2015).
  • There is no justifiable reason why a case like this should not be resolved quickly.

Construction sector ‘in rude health’ as new business surges



  • THE UK’s construction sector remains in “rude health”, driven by the fastest rise in new business for a year, a report said.
  • Tim Moore, senior economist at Markit, said: “Another relatively buoyant construction PMI reading indicates that the sector remains in rude health.
  • But last month’s reading remains comfortably above 50 which indicates growth, and marks two-and-a-half years of sustained output growth across the sector.
  • The sector was driven by an uplift in commercial building, with housing and civil engineering work also expanding but at a slower rate.
  • The latest Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) survey for the sector showed that activity eased slightly to give a reading of 58.8 in October, although this was down from a seven-month high of 59.9 in September.
