Fundamental Attributes of an Enterprise Hybrid Cloud

first_imgFor many organizations moving to a hybrid cloud environment is still uncharted territory. EMC Information Infrastructure CEO David Goulden recently discussed the drivers behind hybrid cloud and how it helps organizations innovate rapidly while still delivering enterprise-grade performance and resiliency.So if everyone sees the value, what is holding companies back? What are their concerns with hybrid cloud? Security, data protection and availability tend to bubble to the top. The promise of hybrid cloud is to deliver IT-as-a-service for consumers to access the resources they need when they need them. The IT department must be able to maintain the visibility and control they need, while automating delivery of services to consumers, all without putting the business at risk.A well-run hybrid cloud provides the tools needed to define the applications and services the IT department wants to offer consumers, including options for data protection, security and compliance.Selecting an application or IT service is like an a la carte menu for the consumer. They go to a service catalog and choose the sizing and performance characteristics. They can also select the type of data protection services they need such as backup, disaster recovery and continuous availability – all of these have already been defined by the IT organization in advance.Security features can be offered in much the same way, with options for encryption to guard data against theft no matter where it resides in the cloud.However, not all decisions on security and protection features should be left up to consumers. Some protection must be baked into the solution. For example, protection against unauthorized access is critical and organizations need granular firewall protection between application layers. A hybrid cloud solution should also be able to securely isolate environments within the cloud.Building in security, data protection and availability is fundamental to a well-run enterprise hybrid cloud, which is why we have all of them as part of our Federation Enterprise Hybrid Cloud solution.Make sure they are part of the solution you choose to invest in too.last_img read more

New hope for the deaf in SA

The two year old toddler is the first child recepient of a cochlear implant from Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital’s speech therapy and audiology department.

It is run by the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Department and the Department of Speech Therapy and Audiology, in partnership with the Department of Health.Lavine Mokhojoa, a chef from Soweto, became the first recipient of a cochlear implant at the hospital on 29 September 2006 when he was 45.To date seven adults and one child have undergone successful cochlear implants through this particular programme.When the unit opened its doors to the public three years ago, the hospital was optimistic about the far-reaching effects it would have.“Through the dedication of the highly trained support staff, in both the ENT and Audiology Departments, the selected patients will receive the highest level of post surgical care and speech rehabilitation necessary to make the programme a success,” the hospital stated when announcing the establishment of the unit.Implants for childrenThe programme has recently extended its reach by opening a paediatric wing.On 1 July 2009 the unit performed a cochlear implant on a two-year-old boy, Monthati Makofane.During such a procedure an electronic device is inserted into the inner ear, which is accessed through a small incision made at the back of the patient’s ear. After the surgery, the wound is given about four weeks to heal.When the doctors are satisfied the wound has healed sufficiently, the external part of the cochlear implant is fitted. The external apparatus consists of a microphone which picks up sound, a battery which runs the device and a data chip which processes sound.Makofane’s device was switched on for the first time on 6 August. Experiencing sound for the first time in his life, the little boy was quite taken aback.“As the device was activated, Monthati immediately reacted to the sound by screaming and crying as he heard noises for the first time in his life,” said the hospital’s senior speech therapist, Dani Schlesinger.Makofane’s parents are ecstatic that their third child is now able to hear.“We’re very happy and excited. We’re looking forward to him hearing and being normal,” Abel Mokofane, Monthati’s father, told the daily newspaper The Star.Abel says he and his wife realised Monthati had a hearing problem when he was six months old.“Whenever a noise was made, clapping or the TV, he never responded.”After a battery of tests confirmed that their son was deaf, the Mokofanes were disappointed, but accepted their child’s condition. This was until an audiologist referred them to the Baragwanath unit and Monthati’s life changed forever.A second child on the list has recently received the go-ahead from the hospital, while two other children have now started the application process to be a part of the programme.Screening processScreening candidates for cochlear implants, Schlesinger explains, is a complex and involved process.“At first, when we see a patient in the Audiology Department, we start by taking a detailed history of that person’s hearing problems to determine how they came about having a hearing impediment, especially if they used to hear normally before. We investigate how it deteriorated over time and what factors were involved.”During the screening process potential implant recipients undergo a series of hearing tests. During these tests patients are asked to listen to sounds played at different frequencies to determine the extent of their hearing impediment.If the tests indicate a severe hearing impediment, patients are fitted with a hearing aid, to see if the device will help them.Speech and language tests are also conducted to assess how the patient has coped with his or her hearing impediment.Patients are assessed on their ability to express themselves, their ability to understand others through lip-reading or hand signals, their ability to learn in a classroom situation (if the patient is a student) and their ability to read and comprehend.When hearing tests are conducted again and the hearing aid is found to be ineffective, the department considers other options.“Once the hearing aid is found to be ineffective in enhancing hearing, we then refer the matter to the Ear, Nose and Throat Department, where the state of the cochlear inside the ear is examined.”“For the patient to be considered for the cochlear implant, there has to be severe to profound permanent hearing loss in both ears, in other words, hearing that cannot be treated,” Schlesinger says.A team comprising speech therapists, audiologists, an ENT specialist and psychologist then gets together to weigh up their findings on a particular patient. If it’s decided that a cochlear implant may be the best way to assist the patient, the operation is approved.Once approved, the patient and his or her family are taken to see a psychologist who prepares them for the emotional and somewhat stressful journey ahead.The patient’s family is required to attend weekly consultations with doctors and therapists in preparation for the operation.A more detailed examination of the inner ear, detecting where the damage lies, and more speech therapy takes place before the procedure.After the implant operation, for the next six months, the patient is required to go for regular check-ups at the hospital.During the check-up sessions the patient will receive auditory training – this includes coaching on how to identify sounds and programming the device to the patient’s hearing level.At the moment the hospital has a long list of patients awaiting cochlear implants.New chance in lifeAgnes Sekete, 23, suffered severe hearing loss in her Grade 12 year after developing meningitis. But her story has a happy ending – she’s one of Baragwanath’s cochlear implant recipients.After her device was switched on in September 2008, she said she felt like a completely new person.Before the operation Sekete said she “was almost knocked down by a car because I did not hear the driver hooting behind me”.After recovering from the operation, Sekete was granted special permission by the Education Department to write her Grade 12 exams.She is now waiting for her final results before applying to tertiary institutions to continue with her studies.“My life was saved by a passer-by who pulled me away from the street. Now I’m able to hear sounds, listen to radio and TV and even answer my cellphone,” she says.How does it work?A cochlear implant differs significantly from a hearing aid.While hearing aids amplify sound, cochlear implants bypass the damaged areas of the ear and stimulate the nerves in the auditory region.A person with a cochlear implant hears sounds differently to a person with normal hearing, but both are able to recognise warning signals and understand everyday noises like music, animal and car sounds.While hearing is not restored to its natural state after a cochlear implant, the recipient will have the ability to interact with others and have a conversation like a person with regular hearing.Overcoming hearing impairmentSouth Africa has a thriving deaf community that’s committed to uplifting and empowering those with hearing difficulties.According to the National Institute for the Deaf in South Africa (NIDSA), there are more than 400 000 deaf people in South Africa.Some 47 deaf schools across the country provide for the needs of 7 000 hearing-impaired children.Organisations like NIDSA aim to help develop the full potential of deaf people through avenues such as basic education, training, welfare services and spiritual care.One of the unique features of the institute is that it dispels myths that many people with regular hearing have about the deaf community.For example, one myth is that sign language is universal.South Africa’s sign language differs from that in America and other countries. Each country develops it’s own, unique form of sign language.Just like any other language, sign language also has dialects. In South Africa, there are many different sign language dialects, but the various groups of deaf people, do not, in general, experience problems in understanding the different dialects, according to the NIDSA website.Another myth is that deaf drivers are more prone to car accidents. The NIDSA says this is definitely not the case, citing increased awareness and a greater reliability on site, making deaf drivers more attentive.Deaf TV, a channel on Digital Satellite Television, caters specifically for the deaf community in South Africa, and offers lively programmes, including movies and lifestyle features.Deaf TV presenters and actors all use sign language but sub-titles are also provided for those who are not deaf, and wish to follow the programmes.Schlesinger says that people who cope with communicating in sign language should carry on with it, as it is an effective way to converse with other deaf people.“If [a deaf person] is leading a normal life, a cochlear implant would not necessarily be the best route for them, as they are already equipped with an effective communication tool. This operation is not a replacement for sign language, but is there to simply help patients where other interventions have failed.”last_img read more

10 months agoCrystal Palace boss Hodgson: I’d welcome new striker

first_imgCrystal Palace boss Hodgson: I’d welcome new strikerby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCrystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has opened the door to signing a new striker in January.Hodgson was asked about his market plans after victory over Wolves.He said, “We’ve got a man coming back we hope. Benteke trains with us tomorrow and obviously he’ll be fully back with us in the course of the next week. If he gets match fit then that will be to an extent a new signing this year because we’ve hardly seen him.“If there are other players that the club can bring in, I certainly won’t be averse to that because we have a very small squad and we haven’t had a lot to back us up at the minute. We’re on the lookout of course and the chairman and technical director are anxious to do what they can to give me and my coaching staff more support, but it’s not easy certainly when you have limited transfer resources.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

TRS banks on good show by regional parties in LS polls

first_imgHyderabad: The Telangana Rashtra Samithi on Monday said most of the regional parties are confident of turning in a good performance in the Lok Sabha elections, giving a boost to its chief K Chandrasekhar Rao’s idea of forging a non-Congress, non-BJP federal front post-poll.TRS spokesperson Abid Rasool Khan said most of the regional parties were confident of getting lot of seats, and claimed they were open to the idea of such a front proposed by the Telangana Chief Minister. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity!”As soon as the (Lok Sabha election) results are out, there would be parleys and formation of a (federal) front. If it has the majority, it will form the government,” Khan told PTI. If this proposed front falls short of numbers, it will decide what role it should play and “how it will have control over the government so that the states don’t suffer and policies of the states are not affected,” he said. TRS is counting on parties such as the SP, BSP, BJD and YSRCP to be on board the proposed federal front, party leaders have said earlier. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killedKhan said his party was ready to support the YSRCP in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh, where Assembly and Lok Sabha elections would be held simultaneously on April 11, so long as it has no truck with the BJP or Congress. In what way the TRS, the ruling party in Telangana, would back YSRCP in Andhra Pradesh is a matter of “political strategisation” between the leadership of the two outfits, he added. Khan said the AIMIM President and Hyderabad MP, Asaduddin Owaisi would campaign for TRS candidates in “all the districts, wherever we require his support, wherever there is sizeable population of minorities and Dalits, and we will extend our support to him in Hyderabad.” TRS deputy floor leader in the Lok Sabha and Karimnagar MP, B Vinod Kumar, claimed Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who is also the TDP chief, was facing “lot of anti-incumbency” and it might help the YSRCP. Kumar said Chandrasekhar Rao would kick off the party’s campaign in Telangana with a public meeting in Karimnagar in March third week. The TRS, which won 11 of the total 17 seats in the previous Lok Sabha elections in 2014, was already in campaign mode with the party last week initiating Parliamentary constituency-wise meetings chaired by its working president K T Rama Rao. The TRS has said it aims to win 16 seats in the April 11 Lok Sabha polls in Telangana, leaving the Hyderabad segment to Owaisi who would be backed by the party.last_img read more
