SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- Last Friday the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix, Arizona, opened its doors from 6 to 8 p.m. to interested visitors aged 18 or older to marvel at "Art 360," a 360-degree art exhibition presented in the dome of Dorrance Planetarium. The event was part of the Adults' Night Out series, organized by the Arizona Science Center. Visitors could explore all four floors of the center, gaze at artwork by local and national artists, including Julia Jones, Katie Davison and the ASU Visualization Prototyping Class. The IMAX theater showed the center's latest movie "Engineering in Space Exploration," while a DJ played energetic music in the cash bar, creating a great atmosphere to unwind, socialize and simultaneously be inspired by the scientific environment.
But the Arizona Science Center is by no means a place for grown-ups only. Ever year, the center hosts a number of travelling shows that are educational and entertaining for the entire family. The current exhibit "Lost Egypt: Ancient Secrets, Modern Science," which will be on display until September 1, is especially intriguing. Upon entering the exhibition halls, visitors find themselves in modern Egyptian streets, leading them around the corner to a life-sized camel statue. While kids can engage in hands-on activities like building a 3-D pyramid puzzle, grown-ups can stroll through the show and check out amazing artifacts from ancient Egypt. "The Arizona Science Center always has a ton of great stuff going on for both kids and adults! As a member of The Director's Circle, I'm happy to support the Center's mission to educate, inspire and entertain people about science," says Jason Hope, an internationally acclaimed entrepreneur who is based in Arizona and has supported the center for many years.
Inspiring, educating and entertaining people of all ages about science is the declared mission of the Arizona Science Center. Founded in 1980, the center has developed into a leading learning facility for children and adults alike. Supported by the community of Arizona, it now welcomes more than half a million guests every year. Generous donations enable the center to organize outreach programs, field trips, camps and much more. One of the most generous supporters is Jason Hope, who was invited to join the Director's Circle, a special organization of individuals dedicated to supporting the center's educational programs, at the Scientist level, the highest level of membership. "The Arizona Science Center is a tremendous educational tool for students state-wide. It's so important that we encourage Arizona's kids to be excited about learning, discovering and creating; the Science Center's programs do just that. I'm honored to be giving back to the community by supporting such a fantastic organization," said Hope.
Jason Hope is an entrepreneur, investor and science fan that has focused his philanthropic efforts on the fields of education, scientific research, disease cure and biotechnology in recent years. Born and raised in Tempe, Arizona, Hope is especially proud that his home state contributes to the scientific development of children of all ages through many inspirational programs spearheaded by the Arizona Science Center. Hope lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, from where he runs his multiple businesses and charitable organizations.

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...

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

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. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments. In their session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steve Anderson, Product Manager at BMC Software, and Rick Lefort, Principal Technical Marketing Consultant at BMC Software, will discuss how a cloud designed for production operations not only helps accelerate developer...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?
