Wanted – Apple Magic Mouse 2

I’m not sure how much they’re worth in honesty!

I know I had the boxes for the mouse and trackpad until very recently, I’m pretty sure I put them in the garage but I’d need to check.

The MM2 and MT (2?!) was purchased in November 2016, couldn’t confirm when the keyboard was bought as I got it from my parents!

Walmart establishes strategic partnership with Microsoft to further accelerate digital innovation in retail | Stories

Five-year agreement will leverage a broad base of cloud, AI and IoT solutions for enterprise-wide use

BENTONVILLE, Ark. and REDMOND, Wa. – July 17, 2018 – Today, Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) announced it is establishing a strategic partnership with Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq “MSFT” @microsoft) to further accelerate Walmart’s digital transformation in retail, empower its associates worldwide and make shopping faster and easier for millions of customers around the world. Through this partnership, Walmart has chosen Microsoft as its preferred and strategic cloud provider tapping into the full range of Microsoft’s cloud solutions. 

“Walmart’s commitment to technology is centered around creating incredibly convenient ways for customers to shop and empowering associates to do their best work,” said Doug McMillon, Walmart CEO. “Walmart is a people led, tech empowered company, and we’re excited about what this technology partnership will bring for our customers and associates. Whether it’s combined with our agile cloud platform or leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence to work smarter, we believe Microsoft will be a strong partner in driving our ability to innovate even further and faster.”

“Walmart is a pioneering retailer, committed to empowering its employees and delivering the best experience for its customers wherever they are,” said Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft. “The world’s leading companies run on our cloud, and I’m thrilled to partner with Walmart to accelerate their digital transformation with Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365.”

Walmart is already using Microsoft services for critical applications and workloads and is now embarking on a broad set of cloud innovation projects that leverage Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and data platform solutions for a wide range of external customer-facing services and internal business applications. The flexible, secure and rapidly scalable global technology will significantly accelerate Walmart’s ability to execute in three key areas:

Digital transformation: The investment in Microsoft Azure is a continuation of Walmart’s cloud journey and extends across Walmart’s family of brands and international businesses – allowing them to leverage Microsoft’s public cloud to:

  • Capitalize on depth and breadth of Microsoft’s compute capacity
  • Ability to seamlessly manage workloads in an elastic environment
  • Leverage expanded access to new toolsets to innovate faster
  • Drive a more cloud native environment and therefore continue to manage cost

In a five-year agreement, Walmart has selected the full range of Microsoft cloud solutions, including Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 for enterprise-wide use to help standardize across the company’s family of brands. As part of the partnership, Walmart and Microsoft engineers will collaborate on the assessment, development, and support phase of moving hundreds of existing applications to cloud native architectures. For example, to grow and enhance the online experience, the company will migrate a significant portion of walmart.com and samsclub.com to Azure, including its cloud-powered check-out enabling Walmart to grow with rising customer demand and reach more global markets than ever before.

Innovation: Whether it’s a continued focus on site availability and speed, or the ability to quickly and seamlessly launch new features, customers will continue to see Walmart innovating to save them time and money across the shopping journey. There are also massive benefits to operating at scale as Walmart builds a global IoT platform on Azure – from connected HVAC and refrigeration units to reduce energy usage in thousands of U.S. stores or applying machine learning when routing thousands of trucks in the supply chain.

Changing how we work: Walmart continues to foster a curious, collaborative, accountable, and agile culture to position the company for further growth. To do that, it’s critical to have tools that encourage those skills and traits. Through this partnership, Walmart is investing in its people with a phased rollout of Microsoft 365 providing associates with the productivity tools to foster a culture of collaboration, creativity and communication. Microsoft’s modern workplace platform supports connected teams and breaks down silos – with access to a full range of tools including Microsoft Workplace Analytics, Microsoft Stream, and Microsoft OneDrive, Walmart associates will have access to leading collaboration, productivity and sharing tools so they can save time and work better.

Notre Dame uses N2WS Cloud Protection Manager for backup

Coinciding with its decision to eventually close its data center and migrate most of its workloads to the public cloud, the University of Notre Dame’s IT team switched to cloud-native data protection.

Notre Dame, based in Indiana, began its push to move its business-critical applications and workloads to Amazon Web Services (AWS) in 2014. Soon after, the university chose N2WS Cloud Protection Manager to handle backup and recovery.

Now, 80% of the applications used daily by faculty members and students, as well as the data associated with those services, lives on the cloud. The university protects more than 600 AWS instances, and that number is growing fast.

In a recent webinar, Notre Dame systems engineer Aaron Wright talked about the journey of moving a whopping 828 applications to the cloud, and protecting those apps and their data.  

N2WS, which was acquired by Veeam earlier this year, is a provider of cloud-native, enterprise backup and disaster recovery for AWS. The backup tool is available through the AWS Marketplace.

Wright said Notre Dame’s main impetus for migrating to the cloud was to lower costs. Moving services to the cloud would reduce the need for hardware. Wright said the goal is to eventually close the university’s on-premises primary data center.

“We basically put our website from on premises to the AWS account and transferred the data, saw how it worked, what we could do. … As we started to see the capabilities and cost savings [of the cloud], we were wondering what we could do to put not just our ‘www’ services on the cloud,” he said.

Wright said Notre Dame plans to move 90% of its applications to the cloud by the end of 2018. “The data center is going down as we speak,” he said.

We looked at what it would cost us to build our own backup software and estimated it would cost 4,000 hours between two engineers.
Aaron Wrightsystems engineer, Notre Dame

As a research organization that works on projects with U.S. government agencies, Notre Dame owns sensitive data. Wright saw the need for a centralized backup software to protect that data, and found N2WS Cloud Protection Manager through AWS Marketplace. Wright could not find many good commercial options for protecting that cloud data.

“We looked at what it would cost us to build our own backup software and estimated it would cost 4,000 hours between two engineers,” he said. By comparison, Wright said his team deployed Cloud Protection Manger in less than an hour.

Wright said N2WS Cloud Protection Manager rescued Notre Dame’s data at least twice since the installation. One came after Linux machines failed to boot after application of a patch, and engineers restored data from snapshots within five minutes. Wright said his team used the snapshots to find and detach a corrupted Amazon Elastic Block Store volume, and then manually created and attached a new volume.

In another incident, Wright said the granularity of the N2WS Cloud Protection Manager backup capabilities proved valuable.

“Back in April-May 2018, we had to do a single-file restore through Cloud Protection Manager. Normally, we would have to have taken the volume and recreated a 300-gig volume,” he said. Locating and restoring that single file so quickly allowed him to resolve the incident within five minutes.
