WASHINGTON, April 11, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- IEEE-USA commends Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) and Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) for their work in helping to keep the Air Force Office of Scientific Research in Northern Virginia's technology corridor in Arlington.
The Air Force had been considering a move to Ohio, but IEEE-USA opposed it because it felt the change might reduce the Air Force's commitment to basic research.
During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Thursday, Kaine asked Deborah Lee James, secretary of the Air Force, about the service's relocation plans. James responded that "the evaluation is completed, and it's staying put."
"Sen. Kaine's commitment to basic research and innovation was on full display during the hearing," said 2013 IEEE-USA President Marc Apter, who lives in Alexandria, Va. "We commend him, Sen. Warner and Rep. Moran for their work on this."
The three members of the Virginia congressional delegation also wrote a January letter to Gen. Janet Wolfenbarger, commander, Air Force Materiel Command in Ohio, in which they praised the Air Force Office of Scientific Research for its "long and proud tradition of basic research in collaboration with the world's leading academic institutions." http://www.warner.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/pressreleases?ContentRecord_id=3e375395-984b-4817-9fdd-162ff7641c19

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
