The world surrounding us wants to be understood. We can record and analyze an enormous amount of different environmental values - and finally grasp them in a larger context.
Previously on this blog, we have had detailed discussions about healthcare IT infrastructure, how to monitor it, and how to keep track of workflows in hospitals or clinics. Something that came up in each of those discussions was the integration engine, and there’s a reason for that: to use an anatomical metaphor, it is the central nervous system of any medical infrastructure. In this post I take a closer look at what an integration engine is, what it does, and how to monitor it.
The Myth of Particulate Matter. There is hardly any environmental discussion that has not dealt with the topics of particulate matter, nitrogen oxides or (diesel) exhaust gases in the last few months. However, you have probably already noticed that some terms are often not used based on their actual scientific definition. Instead, technical terms are mixed up in discourse/conversation and research results are simplified to one's own advantage. In addition, lobbyism is commonplace, freely following the motto, "The only statistics you can trust are those you falsified yourself".
After taking a look at the status of Wi-Fi 6, we turn our attention in this blog post to the other technology that will have a massive impact on our connected digital world in the next decade: 5G. It's something we have been hearing about for a few years now, and you'll certainly have noticed the frequency (pun very much intended) of 5G mentions increasing. But how far along is it? How long before it starts making an impact?
To begin with, I am somewhat suspicious of the term minimalism and its exorbitant spread, fired by blogs and YouTube. I don't care how few underpants you can survive with and when I hear Marie Kondo speak, it awakens in me a potential for aggression that I didn't know I had. After saying that, the idea of minimalism has crept into my life in recent years and without me calling it minimalism, it has also changed my digital life. After I realized that, I became a little more involved with the concept of digital minimalism and developed 5 thoughts that I would like to present.
...and why I can imagine the opposite after doing some research! One could think that the self-driving car would be a technical achievement of the 21st century. Far from it, because the history of self-driving cars goes back to the 1920s.
The Paessler team is excited to announce that we have been recognized as an April 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for IT Infrastructure Monitoring Tools. Our team at Paessler takes great pride in this distinction, as customer feedback continues to shape our products and services.
Agriculture is an industry that is no stranger to disruptive technologies, especially when looking at the Internet of Things (IoT). This is a good development in a globalized world experiencing food shortages in a number of locations. Nevertheless, I want to explain why IoT is not a panacea in agriculture or the food industry so long as fundamental thinking remains unchanged.
The DevOps Camp took place from 26 - 28 April 2019 for the 11th time, and once again in Nuremberg. We were honored to provide the location for the second time. We changed our various meeting rooms on the ground floor of our headquarters into session locations, organized some beer, other drinks (what, there were other beverages as well? :D) prepared the coffee machines, and opened the gates.
You no doubt know about Wi-Fi 6, and how it is a technology that will shape future networks. In fact, alongside 5G, it will have one of the biggest effects on upcoming devices, networks, and consumer expectations over the next few years. But is Wi-Fi 6 already here? What are the biggest benefits? And what does it mean for your networks? Keep reading, because I've got answers for you!
Amazon Go and Apple Pay have a few things in common: they promised a revolution in shopping, they seemed super futuristic and interesting at their first introduction, and people in Europe or similarly remote places in the world have to wait forever to experience them firsthand.
Here's how you get all those cool admin and dev tools like WSL, Chocolatey or OpenSSH running on your Windows 10 machine. Below (after a short introduction) is a hands-on guide of how to customize your Windows 10 settings to make you feel comfortable as a sysadmin or developer, with all the tools you need.
In part 1 of our look at the future of infrastructure, I covered how the cloud, containers, and serverless are all shaping IT. I also briefly explained how important observability is becoming. In this post, I'll go into more detail about exactly what it is, and why it is so important. You can also check out an in-depth interview with me about this topic here:
A few weeks ago Google released an updated preview version of the Google Cloud IoT Device SDK for Embedded C at GitHub. The open source C library allows developers to better connect even the simplest IoT devices to Google Cloud IoT Core.
For a few days now, the PRTG release 19.2.49 has been available for download on the stable release channel. The current release contains a lot of improvements, including improved performance of the PRTG core server, the PRTG Desktop integration, news about .NET 4.7.2 requirements, and much more.
