Every year over 950 Australian children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer. Every week nearly three Australian children and adolescents die of cancer. We think this is a tragedy.

Organisations constantly produce information and data at a rate like never before. This data can unlock secrets in your business which in turn can help you make intelligent decisions.
Previously, it’s been very difficult because of the availability of compute and storage constraints. Big Data is a large volume of structured and unstructured data that can be analysed for insights. We use an analogy to help describe Big Data and the process of data gathering to clients.

I spent an earlier part of my career designing, building, managing and fixing Citrix environments. Some of these were small, some of them large. Back then, Citrix was the right answer – often the only answer that would actually work – on how to deploy corporate Windows apps out to a distributed workforce. Other technologies emerged (VMware View) or got better (Microsoft RDS). Mostly they operate on similar principles with different implementation details.

Big news from AWS this morning with more flexibility added to their already competitive Reserved Instances (RIs) offerings. The market has been asking for more freedom when it comes to RIs, and AWS has definitely delivered. RIs are now Region specific instead of Availability Zone (AZ) specific AND a brand new type has launched – Convertible RIs.
