Another Battle In The Google Vs. Microsoft Cloud War [Infographic]

first_imgbrian proffitt Microsoft is gunning for the online productivity tools user base in a big way, marketing Exchange Online in an effort to take on Gmail. So, how do these two platforms compare?If you’re looking at uptime, which is a pretty big number for any cloud-based system, the Google Enterprise team reported earlier this week that their actual Gmail uptime percentage for 2012 was 99.983% – better than Google’s guaranteed 99.9% rate.“This translates to an average of just over seven minutes of service disruption per month over the last year, and most users experienced no disruption at all,” Venkat Panchapakesan, Vice President of Engineering reported.Curious to see how Microsoft compared, the folks at Cloud Sherpas decided to analyze 151 days of Exchange Online incident reports to get Microsoft’s uptime percentage. Their figures were notable: in that measured period, Exchange Online had a 97.929% uptime rate, lower than Microsoft’s 99.9% uptime promise.There are, I would say, a couple of big caveats with this report: first, Cloud Sherpas seems to equate Gmail vs. Exchange stats as a Google Apps vs. Office 365 face off. The last I heard, Gmail was only one part of Google Apps, and Exchange a component of Office 365. Downtime for one does not reflect downtime for all.Plus, the figures could be cherry picked a bit: Exchange Online was monitored from Sept. 23, 2012 to February 2, 2013, and the reported Gmail figures are from the entire 2012 calendar year, not just the same 151-day timeframe. For all we know, Exchange Online was problem free for all of 2012 until September 22. Or, after January 1 of this year, Gmail tanked a few times.Google and Microsoft (and their respective proxies) will no doubt be butting heads in this space for quite some time. What is interesting to me are the anecdotal reports I keep hearing from workplaces that have shifted to Google Apps: people love to use Google Apps for collaboration and shared storage, but when documents are actually being created, Microsoft Office is still the tool of choice.There are no clear winners yet in this space, but for now, there is no getting around the fact that Exchange Online was only up 97.929% for almost half a year, which comes out to just over three days of lost productivity.

We know what he can bring and that’s why the manager brought him into a more attacking role.“From when he stepped in the door, you could see he has the ability and that’s why the club signed him.“It’s important if you’re an attacking player, you need to be able to cause opposing teams problems and he’s shown that.“I think he will be a massive player for us, he’s an attacking threat, and that’s what we need.

But it was more than just Nick Saban banging on his podium during a heated rant – South Carolina’s Will Muschamp got in on the fun, too. So when the topic of Michigan camping in Florida was brought up by media members, Muschamp felt the perfect way to respond was to take a jab at Michigan, the state. 3HL 1045 The Zone and’s Chris Vannini were on the scene and share these quotes on Twitter.Muschamp on Michigan, “It’s only nice about 3 months a year up there.”— #3HL (@3HL1045) May 31, 2016Will Muschamp on Harbaugh spring trip: “Have you ever been in Michigan in March?

Steve Spurrier Named Ambassador, Consultant For Florida Athletics

first_imgSteve Spurrier seen on College GameDayTwitter/@PickSixPreviewsWhen Steve Spurrier resigned as South Carolina’s head coach midseason last year, there were many who believed that at some point, in some form, he’d head back to his alma mater – Florida – to finish up his career. It turns out they were right.Steve Spurrier will serve as an ambassador and consultant for Florida athletics, per UF release.— David Ubben (@davidubben) July 29, 2016Spurrier, who played quarterback for the Gators from 1963-1966, won a Heisman Trophy and later coached the program for 12 seasons, is headed back to Gainesville.

Here’s more from AD Jeremy Foley, via Florida’s official website:“It’s a great day for the Gator Nation to be able to welcome Coach Spurrier back home,” Foley said. “He has served as a tremendous ambassador to the University and the athletic department for 50-plus years and it’s only fitting that at this point in his career, he is back in Gainesville.

After coaching the Gators for 12 seasons, during which he won a national title, he tried his hand in the NFL, coaching the Washington Redskins for two seasons.

Benitez Newcastle need a miracle for top10 finish

first_imgNewcastle manager Rafael Benitez is braced for a season-long battle in the bottom half of the Premier LeagueThe Magpies settled for a disappointing 0-0 draw against bottom-placed side Fulham on Saturday at home to leave them down in 15th-place and five points above the drop zone.Following a summer of little investment in the club, Benitez has all but ruled out a repeat of last term’s 10th-place finish.“I’m not happy with a point,” said Benitez, according to Football365.“But I’m happy because we didn’t lose and we have four points from the last two games.

Medina – September 14, 2019 Kenyan international, Victor Wanyama, was the protagonist of a summer transfer saga, but in the end, he is set to stay at Tottenham Hotspur.“It’s not easy for anyone here. I was talking last week with people at Huddersfield and we talked about the pressure, a big city, a big club, what it means for us, what it means for them and how you manage this situation.“I think our fans know. Obviously during the game, they want the best for the team and they are expecting something more, but I am sure after a couple of days, they will say, ‘Okay, we have to keep supporting the team because it’s what we have and these players are giving everything’.“Sometimes we make the wrong decisions, but it does not mean that we are not trying to do our best every single game.“I said after Huddersfield that we have to give credit to this group of players because with all the circumstances here, they are doing well.“But still, we have to realise that we will be in the bottom half of the table during the whole season because it’s like that, and if we do well and we can higher, it will be another miracle.”last_img read more
