Newsletter - October 2020

Halloween cancelled?

Welcome to our October newsletter. Normally at this time of year the media and shops would be littering us with reminders about Halloween but things seem to be quieter this year don’t they? Personally I'm quite pleased to not have to dress up or attend Halloween parties the year! What’s your view?

If you are missing the Halloween ‘festivities’, all is not lost! Next week on the 5th of November it’s ‘WinOps Lite’, the virtual conference. Prism are proud co-organisers of the event and I am really pleased with the speaker line up. Check out the details below.

In current affairs I have been really pleased to see organisations pledging to repay their furlough money. What a positive message for the UK industry! Hat’s off to the likes of Dunelm, Taylor Wimpey, Bunzl, Redrow and many more companies for doing so.

In other news, I loved this article on Microsoft’s underwater datacentre proof of concept. What a genius idea to “provide lightning-quick cloud services to coastal populations and save energy.” Check out the article here

This month we decided to go there with my blog suggesting an answer to ‘What is DevOps?’. Check it out and feel free (dare I ask?) to let me know your thoughts and views on the topic! 

I hope you had a great October and I look forward to catching up with you next month.


Did you receive some biscuits?

Are you back in the office? We sent some biscuits out earlier this month as welcome back gift for those returning to the office. 

We have a few left - get in touch and we'll send you one straight away! They're very yummy!

It allows complete elasticity in your virtual warehouse to allow data to run faster and thus provides easy functionality to scale and scale down your extra compute as needed allowing greater efficiency. It's multi-cluster architecture allows warehouses to stop dependency and concurrency issues allowing each warehouse to work autonomously to let Data professionals access the resources they need.
