Aras is bolstering
the fault tolerance and system configurability of its open PLM platform with
the announcement of enhanced vault replication capabilities for Aras Innovator
that aim to simplify the user experience.
Aras's new vault replication enhancements allow
system administrators to completely configure replication rules without any
scripting or programming. System administrators can quickly and easily define
automated replication processes, express complex business rules and create
replication events with no coding required. Configurable vault replication
rules allow the definition of different replication modes for unlimited vaults,
file types, file ownership or any other user-defined business requirement. Replication
events can be set up to operate on-demand, upon file change or on a periodic
schedule when WAN traffic is minimized.
replication approach is designed to ensure that users are always working with
the most current version of a file. With Aras, end users have a single, unified
view of files, even in complex multi-vault, globally distributed environments. Aras
avoids the replication issues faced by other major PLM systems by assigning a
unique identifier to every version of a file. The Aras approach to vault
replication aims for the highest level of data integrity possible while
eliminating synchronization problems and providing a simple experience for end
users, officials explained.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
