INDIANAPOLIS, Nov. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Vroom vroom! Black Friday became Fast Friday in the Racing Capital of the World November 23, 2012 as Santa traded in his sleigh for a slick new Dallara IndyCar. It was all part of the plan to whisk Mr. Claus to The Children's Museum of Indianapolis in record time before the holidays.

It started with a pre-dawn Pit Stop at the Dallara IndyCar Factory in Indiana. There, elves helped Kris Kringle check his list twice (as well as the tires). Race car driver Logan Gomez (Guinness World record holder for closest race car finish ever) took the wheel as Santa climbed in back of the two-seater. Then it was pedal to the metal to race to The Children's Museum of Indianapolis to open up Jolly Days Winter Wonderland – a special holiday exhibit.
Instead of reindeer, Santa was led into town by a pack of 2012 Honda Civic Si Coupe Safety Cars and a police escort. His speedy driver pulled up to the museum at 9 a.m. And so the excitement of Santa's Big Arrival and Jolly Days revved up the crowd at The Children's Museum. Santa's big adventure continued with a traditional dash down the giant Yule Slide.
"HO HO HO – what a way to go," said the jolly old soul with a twinkle in his eye. "I hope to see lots of good little girls and boys at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis this year. It is an extraordinary place for families to create traditions and memories and my favorite place for the old to be young again."
Find video at www.YouTube.com/indytcm and on the home page after 6:00 p.m. today.
Santa and his elves will join Jingles the Jolly Bear through January 6, 2013 for Jolly Days Winter Wonderland. There, visitors enjoy skating in socks on an indoor "pond," climbing and sliding on the Snow Castle, "ice" fishing, and pretend-baking holiday goodies in the Tradition Kitchen with Mrs. Claus. Other holiday treats include Season of Light! - a special journey through the winter holidays in Space Quest Planetarium to discover many cultural celebrations and the interactive musical The Magic Snowman.
There is a special bargain for families on Christmas Eve with free admission while the museum is open for holiday hours from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. It is the perfect time for the little ones to get in their last minute requests and pictures with Santa himself.
Jolly Days is presented by Fifth Third Bank and supported by Barnes & Thornburg LLP and Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St.Vincent.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
