Author: Lei Tan
Professor: Mr. Curtis Floyd
Course: MISM 3301 H1
Date: 2-22-2013

Executive Summary
With global warming and increased power cost, many companies are trying to innovate their date centers in order to cut down the operating costs. Charles Babcock, the author and columnist of Informationweek.com, has wrote “5 Data Center Trends for 2013” to explain that five important trends we can expect to see gain strength in 2013. In Mr. Babcock’s article, he presents that energy efficiency is what one data center concerns that overwhelms all other things, even more than hardware purchase and labor for operations. The cost of energy has risen to 25% of total operating costs. Therefore, it is one of most important things that innovating data center in order to cut down cost and keep company competitive.
Mr. Babcock presents five data center trends such as location drives energy efficiency, using natural gas, the rising of the port-a-data-center, the development of DTrace, and new renewable energy forms. He explains that many enterprises are trying to locate their data centers to somewhere summer nights are cool and winters cold because the right location can drive energy consumption lower. He gives an example of Facebook that it located its new data centers in Prineville, Ore and Forest City, N.C. Facebook built this energy-efficient data center by suing a misting technique with ambient air because it can cool the facility without an air conditioning system. This decision drove the power usage effectiveness down to 1.09 which means Facebook saves almost half energy cost comparing with the average usage 2.0 of enterprises. This trend is driving new innovated equipment and designs in order to adapt new locations that drive energy efficiency. In addition, Mr. Babcock presents a fact that electricity purchased off the…...

...DB (duomenų bazė) apibrėžimas ir pavyzdžiai Galimi veiksmai su DB Duomenų bazių valdymo sistemos (DBVS) DBVS funkcijos 1. DBVS turi minimalizuoti duomenų perteklių (dubliavimą), t.y. reikia projektuoti sistemą taip, kad skirtingos tos pačios organizacijos tarnybos nenaudotų “savų” duomenų ar “savų” failų kopijų 2. DB turi būti suprojektuota taip, kad tuo pat metu keli vartotojai galėtų naudotis ta pačia DB. Tai pasiekiama taikant duomenų blokavimą, t.y. kai vienas vartotojas keičia DB įrašą, kiti vartotojai tuo pat metu gali peržvelgti ar net keisti kitus įrašus. 3. DB turi būti vientisa, t.y. jei ji atitinka tam tikras duomenų saugojimo sąlygas, ji turi išlaikyti tas sąlygas ir atliekant įvairius keitimus DB. Pvz. Studento_bakaluro kurso numeris negali būti didesnis už 4, o magistranto daugiau nei 2. Atliekant pakeitimus reikia tikrinti šių sąlygų užtikrinimą, 4. DB duomenys neturi prieštarauti . Tam pačiam objektui bazėje negali būti kelių įrašų, tai ir neleis jo aprašyti skirtingai. 5. DB saugumas. Turi būti numatyti veiksmai, kurie apsaugo duomenis bazėje nuo tyčinio ar netyčinio sunaikinimo, pakeitimo ar nesankcionuoto duomenų peržiūrėjimo. Tam administratorius naudoja priemones , kurios leidžia suteikti tam tikras teises į duomenų vartojimą. DBVS pagal tas suteiktas vartotojams teises prižiūrivisus vartotojo veiksmus. 6.

...the Ukraine in this manner needs to be fully assessed before Deutsche commits to such an expensive endeavor. The quarterly dividend proposed is 698,000 euro, an amount equal to 25% of the projected 2001 dividends. However, this dividend increase is based on projected earnings, and several factors affect whether those earnings will materialize. Finally, Lukas has recommended an increase in base pay and incentives for Oleg, from a salary of e40,000 plus 5% of the annual sales increase in Ukraine, to e48,500 and 6% of sales. While Oleg has worked hard and produced results over the past 2 ½ years, a compensation package based on sales alone is unwise, as several factors affect a company’s profitability. III. Analysis of Problem When DB first entered the Ukranian market, Oleg relaxed the credit policy for Ukranian distributors from 2 percent 10, net 40 to 2 percent 10, net 80 (clients could take a 2% discount if payment was made within 10 days of the invoice, otherwise payment was due in full within 80 days). The credit policy for Ukranian distributors differed because Ukrainian entrepreneurs, while eager and entrepreneurial, were not privy to the same capital or bank loans that German distributors had access to. The credit policy for the Ukranian distributors was appropriate, given that they were expanding, getting new equipment, and required more time than usual to pay. A flexible credit policy in the Ukraine is appropriate initially while building relationships and......

Benefits of Db and Gathering Information Techniqeusts

...considerable redundancy in the stored data, which results in wastage of storage space. By having centralized database most of this can be avoided. 2) Integrity can be enforced: Integrity of data means that data in database is always accurate, such that incorrect information cannot be stored in database. In order to maintain the integrity of data, some integrity constraints are enforced on the database. 3) Inconsistency can be avoided : When the same data is duplicated and changes are made at one site, which is not propagated to the other site, it gives rise to inconsistency and the two entries regarding the same data will not agree. 4) Standardizing can be enforced for all users, control who can access the DB, data can be shared, can encrypted the DB, DBMS has the responsibility to backup and recovery, etc. Deploying a centralized DBMS increases speed, improves data management, and over the course of time, decreases costs. Any business starts up to maximize profit and the DBMS will give you that flexibility. As all business owners and managers know, accuracy and consistency is essential for maintenance of company records. For example, the restaurant business, it can track pattern of the VIP customers, spending habits, your sales, input customer physical address (if they approve) for advertisements and coupons, if customers calls in for a reservation (assign table and waiter ahead of time), etc. A flat file database is a database that stores data in a plain...

Geography Db

...DB 1: Geography posted by Stacy Harris Thu Dec 9 23:48:28 2010 According to yourdictionary.com, Geography is defined as the study of the earth and all of its features. This also includes the human race and the effect that humans play on the earth. NationalGeographic.com states that there are five themes in Geography. These themes are location, place, human/environment interactions, movement, and regions. If I would have not read this article, I would think that location, place, and region are just about the same. But as I read the article, I found this was not the case. Location refers to the latitude and longitude of an exact spot on a map or globe. Places are defined by the characteristics that distinguish them from other places. For instances, the animal population of certain place makes it unique, as well as other features like mountains and even human architecture. Region refers to an area on earth that is unified by a specific attribute. These attributes can be either human or physical and can include things like climate,religious, political, cultural, and many others. Movement is used to study the way people and products move from one place to another through interactions and travel. It is also used to study resources and where they are located around the earth and how these resources are dispersed throughout the world. Human interaction/environment is used to describe the way that people interact with the world around them. This interaction can be both positive and......

Db Unit 3

...DB UNIT 3 500 words only Assignment Type: Discussion Board Deliverable Length: 4-6 paragraphsThe Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion.At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation.The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each week.With all of the......

Sae Db Guide

...A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO dB CALCULATIONS This is a practical guide to doing dB (decibel) calculations, covering most common audio situations. You see dB numbers all the time in audio. You may understand that 3 dB is considered a just noticeable change in volume level. But, you haven't a clue how to figure out how to figure out what 24 dBm from your mixing console means to your amplifier rated for 1.4V input sensitivity. You may be aware that dB calculations involve "logs" (logarithms). Thanks to a little technology, you can do dB calculations without knowing a thing about the mathematics of logs, anti-logs, ratios, exponents, or even much about math. Unfortunately, there is no real substitute for doing these calculations, but there is a substitute for having to figure out how to do the calculations. This article figures most of that out for you. Along the way the math is explained to some extent so that you might understand what you are doing. Some of the whys about audio calculations are also explained. This guide is necessarily long in order to cover many situations where you might need to use dB. But, if you understand the calculations, you will find that most of them repeat the same things in different ways. If you begin to see this, it means you are beginning to understand how to calculate dB. INTRODUCTION First, you will need to use a scientific calculator. Your Mac computer has one that you can use. To open it from Finder, click on the “Go” menu, then...
