TSC and Subaru Raise $36,000 for Ronald McDonald House Toronto at 11th Annual Hyper Meeting

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Aug. 29, 2014 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) and the Toronto Subaru Club (TSC) were pleased to welcome over 500 enthusiasts at the 11th Annual TSC Hyper Meeting, held on Sunday, August 17. Each year, the annual Hyper Meeting raises funds for Ronald McDonald House Toronto (RMH). This year, the TSC raised a total of $18,000 for the House, an amount matched by Subaru Canada for a grand total of $36,000.

As the largest event of its kind anywhere in Canada, the Hyper Meeting began with a colourful parade of Subaru vehicles, representing an array of models, years and accessories. This year's family-friendly event offered an on-site barbecue, photo booth and an inflatable money machine with Subaru Bucks redeemable for Subaru merchandise. Various games, face painting, coloring contest and mini r/c cars entertained the younger generation of Subaru lovers. For the second year in a row, AutoGuide road test editor Mike Schlee and Derek Serianni of the Toronto Subaru Club acted as master of ceremonies. As a new feature for 2014, live music by Grand Line was performed throughout the event.

"This event isn't just about the cars, it's also about giving back to the community," said Shiro Ohta, chairman, president and CEO of Subaru Canada, Inc. "In keeping with tradition, Subaru Canada has matched the Toronto Subaru Club's fundraising efforts dollar-for-dollar in support of this very worthwhile cause."

Ronald McDonald House Toronto (RMH Toronto) provides a "home away from home" for seriously ill children and their families. RMH Toronto is a place for families to heal better together, both in the 81-family capacity House in downtown Toronto and through the Family Room Program that provides families with a medical-free space within a hospital to rest and retreat, while steps away from their ill child. Since 1981, the facility has been host to thousands of families in need of a comfortable atmosphere of compassion and understanding during a frightening and stressful time of their lives. Support from events like the TSC Hyper Meeting will help RMH Toronto provide families of seriously ill children with a safe and comfortable place to stay that is just steps from the hospital where their child is undergoing life-saving medical treatment.

As the single largest enthusiast club of its kind with over 8,000 members, the Toronto Subaru Club (TSC) is a group of Subaru enthusiasts from Toronto and its surrounding areas. This community-oriented club hosts many events and meets as a way to socialize and mingle. Many of its events benefit its dedicated charity of choice, RMH Toronto.

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.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon.

The material was delivered interac...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
