Episode 7 Recap

From the Pit Start in Winnipeg, The Race exited Canada again as six teams crossed the Atlantic to Normandy, France. At the Roadblock, teams had to barrel through a complicated formula at Calvados Boulard distillery, then made their way to the Detour and chose either braiding the mane of a Percheron horse or assembling the timeline of the famous Bayeux Tapestry. From there teams raced to Asnelles, and piloted a sailboat on wheels through a short beach course, before making their way to Bèny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery. Here, Racers paused to remember their fallen countrymen. From there, it was a reflective drive to the Pit Stop at Juno Beach Centre, where they were greeted by host Jon Montgomery. Montgomery was joined by Jim Parks, a veteran of the Second World War who landed on Juno Beach 70 years ago as a 19-year-old man.

On Juno Beach, Natalie and Meaghan reclaimed their spot atop the podium, winning their fifth leg after starting in fifth place at the Pit Start in Winnipeg. Their win earned them two round trip tickets on Air Canada to any of their European destinations, plus another $3,000 on their Scotiabank Gold American Express Card.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
