CEDAR FALLS, IA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- Dr. Thomas J. Strub, a Cedar Falls dentist, says that while some patients will specifically complain about jaw or jaw joint (Temporomandibular Joint or TMJ) pain, many of his patients do not realize they are suffering from Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD). Patients will arrive at his practice with complaints of headaches, sore muscles, and excessive tiredness in the mornings without knowing why. Dr. Strub checks his patients for possible symptoms of TMD during his routine dental evaluations to determine whether further tests should be administered.
When examining a patient for TMD, Dr. Strub conducts a comprehensive muscle and temporomandibular joint evaluation. The evaluation includes checking the range of motion of the jaw, palpating the facial muscles to test for soreness, and observing the function and fit of the teeth for instability or wear. He also checks the jaw joints for clicking or popping (crepitus) along with the teeth to determine if the problem is an internal joint issue with the cartilage between the jawbone and the skull out of place or damaged, or if the problem is a muscle issue related to a patient's clenching and grinding habits. In both cases, a patient can find relief by wearing a small flat plastic appliance that covers the lower teeth. Dr. Strub says patients can experience significant improvement by faithfully and routinely wearing the device at night. This dental appliance relaxes the facial muscles and allows teeth to function in an ideal way that allows the jaw joint itself to heal. In addition to reducing the stress on the jaw joint with a dental appliance, Dr. Strub occasionally recommends physical therapy, anti-inflammatories, or muscle relaxers for severe cases.
After a successful TMD treatment, many patients will experience better sleep and often notice a reduction in headaches. Their overall quality of life improves as they have an increased range of motion and function in the jaw and teeth that allow them to more comfortably eat, chew, and speak. Dr. Strub says many patients of his Cedar Falls dentistry practice report that TMD treatments have changed their lives -- that his patients never realized that they did not need to live with headaches, muscle pains, uncomfortable jaw pain, and tense or sore facial muscles. He says after treatment many of his patients feel like a younger version of themselves.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...

The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to transi...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
