How to Hire the Best of the Best
How do you? People who are exceptional have a history of being outstanding. Look for signs of greatness. Exceptional candidates are usually recognizable at a young age. They were captains of teams, won speech contests, or ran businesses while getting degrees. They were standouts. They have conquered the skills and passion to be great. These are the people you want to hire if you’re looking for the best of the best.

An AI Assistant with Recognizable Flair
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has finished building Jarvis, his home AI assistant. Among other things, the system can turn lights on and off, play music based on the personal tastes of both him and wife Priscilla Chan, automatically open their front gate for friends, make toast, and even wake up their one-year-old daughter Max with Mandarin lessons. And celebrity, Morgan Freeman will be the voice of Jarvis.

Just as the Millennium Falcon was an integral character to the plot of Star Wars, the new movie, “Passengers”, stars “The Avalon”, an elaborate starship that carries 5,000 hibernating passengers on a 120-year journey to a distant utopian planet called Homestead 2. Jennifer Lawrence fans will love this.

Bolstering Your DR Plan for a Challenging New Year
Focus on changing the thought process from planning and preparing for an annual test to thinking about DR as a continuous activity. Involve individual agencies in DR planning and testing, and boost awareness through online and print materials such as posters and planning kits. Educate and encourage your staff to think about DR as a part of their everyday job, not just when an exercise is approaching.

• Minimal customization of existing services
• Rapid scaling up and down of most services
• Customer managed
• Generalized compliance based on service provider
Private Cloud
• Provisioned for exclusive use
• Self-service and rapid provisioning and elasticity
• Some customization of services per customer
• Pay-as-you go or static billing
• Can be deployed for specific compliance requirements
Hybrid Cloud
• A combination of two or more cloud infrastructures tied together by common protocols
• Combine public and private cloud services based on need, i.e., Private SAN and public or multi-tenant firewall
• Single or multiple service providers
• Usage based or static resource billing
