Aeroports de Montreal (ADM) is pleased to confirm that Tunisian airline Syphax will launch regular direct service between Montreal-Trudeau and Tunis-Carthage airports this April 25. This will make Montreal the only North American city connected to the Tunisian capital by direct flight. Tunis now joins four other North African and Middle Eastern destinations served year-round from Canada exclusively via Montreal-Trudeau: Casablanca (Morocco), Algiers (Algeria), Amman (Jordan) and Doha (Qatar).

"Following the recent announcements of the arrival of Turkish Airlines (Istanbul, Turkey) and Copa Airlines (Panama), this third addition for 2014 clearly illustrates Montreal-Trudeau airport's vitality as it seeks to strengthen its positioning as a hub connecting Europe/North Africa/the Middle East with the Americas," said ADM President and Chief Executive Officer James Cherry.

The new weekly Montreal-Tunis flight, about 7 1/2 hours in duration, will be aboard an Airbus A-330-200 with a total of 277 seats-250 in economy class and 27 in business class. The flights will depart on Friday evenings.

Montreal-Trudeau serves some 130 destinations by direct flight, ranking it second among Canadian airports in this area. This summer, Montreal will be offering direct flights to 28 European centres. Focused on the Atlantic, for essentially geographic and demographic reasons, Montreal-Trudeau's air services reflect the specific needs of the Montreal community.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...
See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.

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.
