Dear Readers,

The holiday season is almost over. We have only one “holiday” left this month - Valentine's Day. Do you count it as a holiday? Do you celebrate other holidays this month? Let us know, we love to learn more about you!

You will not find hearts in this issue. You don’t have to expect red and pink colours either, but if you like to celebrate the holiday of love, I would like to wish you an amazing time with beloved ones.

Moving on to the issue, this time we would like to focus on the subject of open storage. Check out contents below!

Here, I would also like to apologise to you for changing the names of the files. We have been trying to systematise it and we have decided that naming them by numbers, not by months will be the best way. So that's how it will be from now and please, don't get annoyed by that any more 😉

Enjoy your reading!

In the world of storage, caching can play a big role in improving performance. OpenZFS offers some very powerful tools to improve read and write performance.

7 Best Practices for Your Enterprise’s Journey to the Cloud

Attibruted to Stephen Orban, Head of Enterprise Strategy at AWS

This article serves as an introduction to my new thinking, and lays out seven best practices I’ve seen in enterprises that are delivering results on their Journey. I’ll dive deeper into each best practice and talk about some of the things I’ve seen work (and not work) for each as this series comes together. Because the cloud is disrupting the way IT is delivered and consumed, you have a tremendous opportunity to scrutinize and rethink the way IT operates in your organization.

Cloud is Changing how Security Professionals and Enterprises Think about Innovation

Model View Whatever - Forms and Controls influence

by Damian Czernous

In the '70s, engineers mostly worked on creating and manipulating widgets. The MVC seems to be the right structure for that task. Model fits the need of storing data related to the single widget. View renders graphical representation of the widget with data. Widgets communicate with each other through the model. The model using Observer Synchronisation broadcasts any changes to all interested widgets (views), so they can update. Separated Presen- tation and Observer Synchronisation are key mechanisms of MVC widely accepted by the engineering community.
