CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwired - November 30, 2016) - North Carolina-based Harrison Fence, an ActiveYards® dealer, has recently partnered with the Pulte Group and supplied fencing for a Pulte Del Webb community called Carolina Arbors, located in Durham, North Carolina. Installation has been ongoing since the land was cleared and developed beginning in 2013. Harrison Fence is currently completing the fence installation for the final phase of the community.
Before winning the bid, Harrison Fence had to demonstrate that the ActiveYards fences would stand up to the required weight load code for fencing on the retaining walls on the property. Working with independent engineers, the ActiveYards material was tested and all products surpassed the required code. Once approved, the contract was then awarded to Harrison Fence.
"It has been surreal over the past few years to walk thousands of feet of undeveloped cleared terrain to measure for fence installation and know that eventually, homeowners will be living here and safely enjoying their backyards. We are fortunate to live in an area with so much growth and development," said James Plain, Harrison Fence, Installation Supervisor. "Now, it is even more exciting to see the land developed, families moving in, and work almost completed on the Del Webb property," added Plain.
Working in several phases, Harrison Fence has been installing 24,300 lf of 4' High ActiveYards Granite Haven Aluminum Fence and 12,391 lf of 4' High ActiveYards Granite Home Aluminum Fence, as well as a variety of Wooden Perimeter stockade fence, guardrails and chain-link utility fencing within the community.
Harrison Fence has installed ActiveYards fencing systems for both land development and home construction for the community. "In addition, we have completed fence work at the amenities center, installed a dog park fence and work at the sales models for each phase. We also go back in and install fence where it is needed after homes are in place, and since we are in the neighborhood and our installation trucks are noticed we also install fences for individual homeowners after the homeowners move into their homes," said Shauna Harrison.
So far in 2016, the Pulte Group has installed 20,865 lf of ActiveYards Aluminum Fence as well as 50+ ActiveYards Vinyl Fence Townhome partitions throughout Triangle North Carolina neighborhoods.

There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership abi...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
