Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure Review

We have began the process of migrating to a Hybrid Hyper V cloud infrastructure. The process of developing the next generation platform provides great value. The evolution of  Social media is driving big data housed on servers around the world.  The utilizing  of virtualization and the cloud, improves flexibility, redundancy, and overall management of the infrastructure.

The goal for our migration to virtualization and Hybrid cloud is to respond to customer needs faster, save money for our clients, and integration of onsite and cloud infrastructure.

The following benefits can be realized by Azure cloud infrastructure:

  1. Azure Stream Analytics provides insight into devices, sensors, infrastructure, and applications.
  2. Azure Document-DB none SQL query and transaction processing.
  3. Increased privacy protection and improved security compliance.
We are implementing Azure automation to save time and money completing cloud management tasks. We are looking to improve operations and customer services utilizing Azure platform!

Snow boarding Video blog

Snow boarding video 

Snow boarding is a great  winter activity especially in North East of New England.  The snow boarding season has been exceptional as we have been berried with snow. I enjoy free style boarding, racing, and cruising the mountain.

Currently I am ridding a Burton Blunt with Malavita bindings. While ridding in the North East I prefer a flexible board to navigate narrow and some times icy trails. While ridding I enjoy listening to music through my GIRO helmet and capturing video footage on my GoPro.

We have been documenting our snow boarding adventure and technological advances in video capture technology.  We will be implementing a video blog in conjunction with our Jbrockproduction YouTube Channel We hope everyone enjoys the season!

Career development - tools and resources.

Career Development - How to acquire skills valued by employers that will help advance your career. Training and Education are often the most over looked corporate assets. Typically trained and educated employees help corporations grow.

Career Development and education often fall on employees shoulders to take advantage of tuition reimbursement. Tuition reimbursement is not often used unless some one is pursuing a masters degree or  changing career objectives. Enhancing corporate training and developing trained employees should be high priority goal.

One of the major obstacles in regards to training is finding time. In some situations an employer will give employee the day off to attend training. This benefit should motivate the employee and improve productivity. The bottom line is, employee and employer must find time for career development, training, and education.

In the super competitive job market, employers are looking for candidates with highly specialized skills. Acquiring highly specialized skills can be expensive, so employees must have a career development plan. Make and take time to invest in yourself!
