When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures.

It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...

Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
