            This is the fundamental truth about data protection: backup is dead. Or rather, backup and recovery, as a standalone topic, no longer has relevance in IT. As a standalone topic, it's been killed off by seemingly exponential growth in storage and data, by the cloud, and by virtual...ization. So what is data protection? This book takes a holistic, business-based approach to data protection. It explains how data protection is a mix of proactive and reactive planning, technology and activities that allow for data continuity. It shows how truly effective data protection comes from a holistic approach considering the entire data lifecycle and all required SLAs. Data protection is neither RAID nor is it continuous availability, replication, snapshots or backups-it is all of them, combined in a considered and measured approach to suit the criticality of the data and meet all the requirements of the business. The book also discusses how businesses seeking to creatively leverage their IT investments and to drive through cost optimization are increasingly looking at data protection as a mechanism to achieve those goals. In addition to being a type of insurance policy, data protection is becoming an enabler for new processes around data movement and data processing. This book arms readers with information critical for making decisions on how data can be protected against loss in the cloud, on-premises, or in a mix of the two. It explains the changing face of recovery in a highly virtualized data center and techniques for dealing with big data. Moreover, it presents a model for where data recovery processes can be integrated with IT governance and management in order to achieve the right focus on recoverability across the business.

            This book describes a requirements lifecycle based on the Rational Unified Process (RUP) framework, from business modeling through to analysis and design. The process utilizes a subset of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) to describe this process with 'real' examples, which dem...onstrate an effective method for software development in almost any situation. It includes some of the most useful software development practices and the most common UML notations. (Version 3 corrects grammar, reorganizes some content and fixes broken cross-references in version 2.)

            On the Future: Prospects for Humanity (EPUB ebook)

            By Rees, Martin

            A provocative and inspiring look at the future of humanity and science from world-renowned scientist and bestselling author Martin ReesHumanity has reached a critical moment. Our world is unsettled and rapidly changing, and we face existential risks over the next century. Various... outcomes-good and bad-are possible. Yet our approach to the future is characterized by short-term thinking, polarizing debates, alarmist rhetoric, and pessimism. In this short, exhilarating book, renowned scientist and bestselling author Martin Rees argues that humanity's prospects depend on our taking a very different approach to planning for tomorrow.The future of humanity is bound to the future of science and hinges on how successfully we harness technological advances to address our challenges. If we are to use science to solve our problems while avoiding its dystopian risks, we must think rationally, globally, collectively, and optimistically about the long term. Advances in biotechnology, cybertechnology, robotics, and artificial intelligence-if pursued and applied wisely-could empower us to boost the developing and developed world and overcome the threats humanity faces on Earth, from climate change to nuclear war. At the same time, further advances in space science will allow humans to explore the solar system and beyond with robots and AI. But there is no "Plan B" for Earth-no viable alternative within reach if we do not care for our home planet.Rich with fascinating insights into cutting-edge science and technology, this accessible book will captivate anyone who wants to understand the critical issues that will define the future of humanity on Earth and beyond.

            AbstractThis is the age of data revolution. Governments, businesses, and individuals increasingly rely on accurate and timely data in their decision making. New technologies are taking place to increase the amount, quality, speed and usability of data; new tools are being develop...ed for dissemination of data; and new methods are being invented to derive valuable information from raw data. There are however new challenges with respect to how data should be collected, how it should be stored, managed, transferred and ultimately how to make the most out of this ever growing, so called big data . Governments seek to have tools to collect and meaningfully analyze the data to support their policy decisions; businesses strive to know the facts for their business investments and individuals want to access relevant data anywhere and anytime they need to make decisions. Moreover, developers are extensively using the big and open public data to create new applications for government agencies, businesses and individuals. Throughout this paper, we will discuss what makes the public data really open ; why is it crucial for government transparency, citizen engagement and service innovation; what are the steps governments should take to publish their data; and moreover how data openness contributes to mobileGovernment implementations. Among all the other potential outcomes, we highlight Open Government Data's economical and social benefits by unleashing the power of ever growing amount of big data in favor of more efficient governments and empowered citizens and businesses. It is highly critical that all the stakeholders realize the benefits and opportunities that OGD brings to the table, and work in collaboration for data openness as well as its efficient use for better public services and innovative service applications for governments, businesses and citizens. Although the discussions about the relevance of data openness in public sector are significantly encouraging, there has n
