Many homes today provide a refuge for hidden dangers and problems: dust, mold, allergens, bad air, bad water and wasted energy. The Healthy House Institute offers solutions for identifying and reducing these dangers. Home allergens and poor indoor air quality represent one of the biggest problems, particularly in fall and winter, when air becomes trapped within the home. Tainted water is another serious concern, and the institute offers suggestions for treatment and filtering methods when drinking water becomes too heavy or laden with minerals or other contaminants.

As part of its mission, the Healthy House Institute promotes green living and sustainable energy practices. These practices include energy-efficient windows, doors, insulation, lighting and appliances. With a moderate up-front investment, energy efficiency quickly pays for itself. Green living includes making product choices that reduce one's carbon footprint and create fewer, or no, toxic waste materials. 

"People spend 65 percent of their time in their homes," said Healthy House Institute President Allen P. Rathey. "The health and safety of indoor environments, especially homes, cannot be overstated. Our vision of a healthy home is one that positively impacts every facet of society, including public health to environmental stewardship. From new home construction to remodeling and restoration, the Healthy House Institute provides resources and guidance for each stage in a home's life cycle."

The Healthy House Institute offers articles, blogs and links that touch on every aspect of healthy living spaces. The library of information is conveniently organized by category and type, while a search box offers quick sorting by keyword. Users can receive updates regarding new content of interest via RSS feeds.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when.

Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...

Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
