VMworld 2016: be_Tomorrow by Modernizing Today

first_imgVMworld 2016 is in full swing! Our EMC crew is amongst the 24,000 attendees that have travelled to Las Vegas to get out in front of the latest virtualization and cloud technology developments.What have we been talking about at the show? Whereas VMware’s theme is be_Tomorrow ours is Modernize. Why Modernize? Because what better way to be_Tomorrow than to Modernize today.Now, the best way to get started is to build a modern data center and for users of VMware technology that means adopting flash, software-defined, scale-out and cloud-enabled technology that’s trusted, protected and optimized for VMware environments – and when it comes to building technology optimized for VMware environments, its hard to top us.Just last week, we put word out about industry-leading enhancements to our storage and converged platforms as well as our data protection technologies that make it easy to make the most of VMware environments and what EMC brings to them.As the clear leader in Flash, we put even more distance between ourselves and the field by unveiling a brand new XtremIO vRealize Orchestrator (VRO) plug-in that allows infrastructure teams to build a self-service catalog of automated, end-to-end, infrastructure workflows. This wasn’t our only bit of XtremIO news – there’s more here.But let’s say you’re thinking above the storage layer to something like a converged platform – something that’ll get you on the fastest path to a modern data center. Whether you’re looking to lay down a system that optimizes your traditional apps or a system that acts as the foundation for your cloud native apps of the future, we just announced two of them, both built on VMware technologies: Enterprise Hybrid Cloud 4.0, which optimizes for the critical business applications of today, and Native Hybrid Cloud, the fast way to enable your business to build the cloud native applications of tomorrow. The most exciting piece of news about our Native Hybrid Cloud is that we’ll be offering a config built on VMware VxRail – the HCI platform of choice for customers standardized on VMware vSphere. For more details, listen to everyone’s good pal Chad Sakac talk about EHC and NHC.Of course, a modern data center isn’t modern unless it’s trusted and protected. Last week we announced that EMC is fulfilling our role as the first replication design partner for VMware vSphere APIs for IO filtering (VAIO) by becoming the first vendor to market fully integrated virtual replication data services through RecoverPoint for VMs. In addition, we made the best HCI for VMware even better by integrating EMC Data Protection Suite for VMware into VxRail. Click here for more on how we’re delivering data protection everywhere for VMware environments.Now, the best way to test out of all this goodness is by grabbing a seat at the VMworld Hands-on Lab, which by the way, runs on XtremIO. I’d also like to draw your attention to what Chad Sakac had to say about the impact XtremIO has had on the VMware HoL.Speaking of experts, we’ll have ours out in full force at the show, whether they’re in our booth (#1223) or leading breaking out sessions.What else is happening with EMC at VMworld? Find the complete rundown of breakouts and demos here. Of course, be sure to follow @EMCcorp on twitter for all the latest developments from Las Vegas as well.last_img read more

FIFA’s Infantino proposed as IOC member, but not Coe – Bach

first_imgBy Karolos GrohmannLAUSANNE, Switzerland (Reuters) – FIFA president Gianni Infantino has been proposed for International Olympic Committee (IOC) membership, but World Athletics head Sebastian Coe will have to wait due to a conflict of interest, IOC president Thomas Bach said yesterday.Olympics has been without membership ever since the departure from the IOC of its respective former presidents Sepp Blatter and Lamine Diack in 2015.For years, membership of the IOC for the heads of soccer and athletics was seen as almost automatic.Yet the two international federations have been left out in the cold as they struggled with widespread corruption and doping scandals which tarnished their images. Diack, who has denied wrongdoing, faces a corruption trial in France in January. Bach said Infantino had been proposed for election at its next session in January along with International Tennis Federation chief David Haggerty and Japanese Olympic Committee president Yasuhiro Yamashita.World Athletics chief Coe, however, had not been proposed due to a conflict of interest. “We wanted him (Coe) to become an IOC member as president of one of our most important Olympic sports,” Bach said. “Since then we are in close consultation with him and since then we have addressed the risk of a potential of conflict of interest he may have.”Apart for his role at World Athletics, Coe is also Group Chairman of consultancy firm CSM which also works with the IOC. “CSM is consulting various organisations and stakeholders including having contractual partnerships with the IOC itself.”Bach said Coe had informed them that he could not immediately resolve this situation but was working on it. Bach said Coe could become a member at its session during the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. “He is hopeful to address it in a couple of months. Then that would mean the door is still open for Tokyo.” The IOC elects new members at its sessions once candidates are vetted by the Olympic body.last_img read more

Men’s tennis defeats UCLA and Stanford to win Pac-12

first_imgThe USC men’s tennis squad will head into the NCAA tournament as conference champions. The team took down UCLA and Stanford last week in Ojai en route to its first Pac-12 Championship since 2012.USC automatically advanced directly to the semifinals of the Pac-12 Championship thanks to its No. 2 seed and Stanford, as the No. 1 seed, advanced directly to the semifinals as well. UCLA and California, the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds respectively, didn’t have to play until the quarterfinals. The first two matchups of the tournament were No. 5 Oregon against No. 8 Arizona and No. 6 Washington against No. 7 Utah.During the first round on Wednesday, both of the higher seeds won their matchups. Oregon defeated Arizona by a score of 4-1 and Washington shut out Utah 4-0. The next day, both Oregon and Washington were knocked out of the tournament by their fellow opponents. California squeezed by Oregon 4-3 while UCLA swept Washington 4-0.With the win on Thursday, UCLA was set to play USC on Friday in the semifinals.  The Trojans made quick work of the Bruins, eliminating them from the tournament with a 4-1 victory. The match began strong for the Trojans when seniors Yannick Hanfmann and Roberto Quiroz, who are ranked No. 3 by the ITA in doubles play, completely shut down the Bruin pairing of Mackenzie McDonald and Martin Redlicki with a score of 8-0.  The Trojans secured the double point soon after when the pairing of junior Max de Vroome and senior Eric Johnson defeated Joseph Di Giulio and Karue Sell by a score of 8-2.The Trojans carried their momentum into singles play, capturing the first singles point when sophomore Nick Crystal defeated Di Giulio 6-2, 6-1. Then, McDonald defeated No. 11-ranked Hanfmann 6-3, 6-4 to give UCLA what would turn out to be its lone match point.  Senior Jonny Wang put the Trojans back in the win column when he took down Sell by a score of 6-4, 7-6 (1).  De Vroome punched the ticket to the final for the Trojans after coming back from a first set loss to win his match against Austin Rapp in three sets with a score of 6-7, 6-1, 6-3.  Quiroz’s match against Redlicki and Johnson’s battle with Dennis Mkrtchian were suspended following De Vroome’s victory.Stanford ended Cal’s tournament by beating them 4-1 in the semifinals, so the stage was set for a showdown final between No. 1 Stanford and No. 2 USC. A few weeks earlier, Stanford had taken down USC 4-3. USC also had beaten Stanford earlier in the year during a non-conference match-up by a score of 6-1, however.The Trojans struck first in doubles play, with Crystal and freshman Thibault Forget claiming an 8-2 victory over Nolan Paige and David Wilczynski.  Stanford fought back, tying the doubles score 1-1 when the No. 13-ranked pairing of John Morrissey and Robert Stineman bested Hanfmann and Quiroz 8-6. The deciding match went to Stanford when Tom Fawcett and Maciek Romanowicz took down de Vroome and Johnson by a score of 8-5.With Stanford winning the doubles point, the Trojans knew that they had to win at least four of their six singles matches to win the Pac-12 Championship.  Wang was the first Trojan to help contribute to those four wins, beating Paige by a score of 6-2 two sets in a row to give the Trojans their first match point. Quiroz then put the Trojans on top 2-1 with a two set (6-4, 6-4) victory over Wilczynski.  The Trojans wouldn’t enjoy that lead for long as Stanford’s David Hsu knotted the score at 2-2 shortly after when he took down De Vroome 7-5, 6-4.  Fawcett then gave Stanford a 3-2 lead when he came back from a first set loss to defeat Hanfmann by a score of 2-6, 6-1, 6-2.With the pressure on them, both Johnson and Crystal needed to win their matches for a Trojans victory while Stanford only needed one of their two remaining players, Romanowicz and Morrissey, to win their match to clinch the Pac-12 Championship.  Crystal kept the Trojans alive by defeating Romanowicz in two sets by a score of 7-6, 6-4.  Thus, the Pac-12 Championship came down to Johnson’s match with Morrissey.  The match went to three sets, and it was Johnson who had the stronger final set, ultimately winning the match 6-2, 4-6, 6-2.  The victory gave the Trojans both a come-from-behind 4-3 win over Stanford and the Trojans the title of 2015 Pac-12 Champions.With the victory, the No. 8-ranked Trojans also earned the automatic qualifier from the Pac-12 into the NCAA Tournament, where the Trojans will try to reach the final goal of winning their sixth national championship in seven years. The Trojans will begin their journey during the NCAA First and Second Rounds, which will be held May 8 and 9.last_img read more

(Photo by Hans Gutknecht, Los Angeles Daily News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Second verse, same as the first.Joe Panik ruined the Opening Day party at Dodger Stadium, striking for the only run of the game and ending Clayton Kershaw’s unbeaten streak in season-opening starts.One night later, it was Panik again who provided the only offense in another 1-0 San Francisco Giants victory over the Dodgers. This time, he broke a scoreless tie when he led off the ninth inning with a solo home run off Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen.The Dodgers have started the season with their two best pitchers – Kershaw and Jansen – taking consecutive losses. It is the first time since 1968 that the Dodgers have started the season without scoring a run in their first two games. Dodgers’ Kike’ Hernandez should get most of playing time at second base with Justin Turner out Asked about his two cutters to Panik that registered 88 and 89 mph, Jansen dismissed the queries about out-of-sync mechanics with “Who cares?” repeating it four times.“No, man. It’s not mechanics,” Jansen said. “He just got me.” The game was effectively decided on Jansen’s second pitch of the season, an 89-mph cutter that Panik mashed into the right-field pavilion.“For Kenley, as I’ve learned him over the last couple years, when the velocity is down there’s a mechanical thing that’s not right. He’s not synced up,” Roberts said. “It’s not a health thing. He feels great. He feels strong. It’s not a usage thing. So I think it is a mechanics thing that he and Honey (Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt) will work through.“That pitch to Panik was inner third, belt high and 89, I think. Just kind of a cement mixer there, in his nitro zone and very uncharacteristic of Kenley.” Panik has been a giant among Lilliputians when it comes to offensive output in this series.Thursday’s 1-0 Giants win looked like a slugfest compared to Friday’s version. Errors (four, all by the Dodgers) outnumbered hits (three, only one by the Dodgers) and the Dodgers sent the minimum 27 batters to the plate. Starting pitchers Alex Wood and Johnny Cueto didn’t allow a hit through the first four innings – and Cueto took a perfect game into the seventh inning.Wood gave up just an infield single in his eight scoreless innings. At the same time, Cueto’s twisting, pausing and quick-pitching kept the Dodgers hitters off balance – not that they have found their sea legs yet this season.“It’s been two well-pitched baseball games,” Roberts said. “We know Cueto. He just executed well tonight, missed barrels and kept us off balance. The thing with Cueto is that if you don’t get baserunners and don’t get him in the stretch, that’s when he’s at his best keeping you off your timing, working you front to back. He’s got that thing in his delivery that he can change and again keep you off balance.”Cueto set the first 18 Dodgers down in order. The closest the Dodgers came to a hit in the first six innings was Yasmani Grandal’s line drive over the head of Giants left fielder Hunter Pence. With his usual hacky-sack player turned outfielder form, Pence went back on the ball, twisted and jumped up in the air to make a catchChris Taylor finally put an end to the perfect game when he led off the seventh inning by dropping a soft single onto the outfield grass. He was immediately erased in a double play and the Dodgers’ search for their first run of 2018 continued.Related Articlescenter_img “No. That’s not how we scripted it,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of how things have gone off the rails since the choreographed pre-game ceremony Thursday.Without spelling it out, Friday’s starter, Alex Wood, channeled his inner Aaron Rodgers, reminding everyone that it might have been Panik time these two days but it was hardly panic time.“I’m sure everybody’s freaking out because we’ve lost two games,” Wood said. “But we still have a really, really good team.”Nonetheless, that team has given its followers much to freak out about – like an offense that is batting .121 (7 for 58) without an extra-base hit since the plumbing backed up and an invincible closer who has yet to break 90 mph with a pitch.“It don’t matter. It’s a long season, guys,” Jansen said after Friday’s loss. “Sometimes it’s going to happen. … It’s two games. You can’t be frustrated by it. Stay focused. We all have that goal. It’s not going to be easy. It’s going to be a battle. We just have to go through it.” Dodgers investigate claim fan was beaten by stadium security on Opening Day Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
