Is cloud hosting really going to benefit my enterprise in terms of IT costs reduction and scalability issues?

Discuss this question

Question found in Software
Cloud computing utilizes multiple connected servers to do the web hosting instead of the shared/dedicated server infrastructure of the traditional web hosting. This enables better scalability and load balancing as the processing power and hardware infrastructure is virtually unlimited.

As you have mentioned in your question the two points of scalability and cost efficiency are definitely part of a cloud environment and it can add tremendous advantages in these areas for your enterprise. A cloud hosting setup can make your web expansion demands to be met fairly easily with very little limitations. The cloud will take care of the drastic variations in traffic and severe load on the servers with out much problem. Since the cloud-hosting providers usually bill for the amount of computing power utilized your enterprise will be paying only for the power consumption made by your website.

Even if cloud hosting raises some concerns in the field of security and privacy it is definitely gaining huge popularity among Medium and Top level enterprises because of its definite advantages in scalability, ease of deployment and cost factors.

What materials are used for ear defenders?

Discuss this question

Question found in Education In General
Earmuffs are objects designed to protect a persons ear from both cold and harsh or loud noises. This was invented by Chester Greenwood in 1873.

Thermal Earmuffs are worn as protection against cold conditions and they act as a thermal cover over the ears.

Acoustic Earmuffs act as a protection at loud noisy surroundings. The cups of the earmuff are lined with sound-blocking material ranging from simple linings of PU Foam and cotton wool to electronic devices, which protects ears from ambient noise.

Passive earmuffs have Foam rubber and cotton wool, which are less dense materials, and so the sound waves are not carried through them easily. Sound waves are absorbed and this reduces the amplitude of the waves resulting in less noise. Electronic earmuffs have sophisticated electronic circuits, which modulate the incoming noise.

Dear sammy,

You can manually delete the unused icons on your desktop if you are sure you are not going to need them in future. Or you can use the "Desktop Cleanup wizard" in Windows XP to manage these unused icons. Follow the below given steps to make use of this wizard.

1. Right click on Desktop.

2. Select the "Arrange Icons By" Menu and click on the "Run Desktop Cleanup Wizard" menu item.

3. In the Wizard Click Next and select all those shortcuts that you need to remove Then click Next and then Finish.

4. Now all those icons will be moved by Windows to another folder on desktop named "Unused Desktop Shortcuts".

5. From now on you can drag unwanted icons direct to this folder.

To re-enable the Master Volume shortcut on the taskbar follow these steps.

1. Click Start Menu. Go to Control Panel and launch "Sounds and Audio Devices".

2. In the "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" window look for Device Volume section in the first tab that is shown. In it check the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" checkbox and click Apply and Ok.

What was the first man made invention that travelled faster than sound?

Discuss this question

Question found in Science In General
I think the first man made invention that traveled faster than sound would be a bullwhip. When whipped correctly the tip of the bullwhip can easily break the sound barrier as it can travel over an astounding 700 Mphs and can create a sharp crack—literally a sonic boom - while it breaks the sound barrier.


As our expert Mr. Craig Brownell has stated in his answer cannon balls and bullets also broke the sound barrier before airplanes achieved this feat. Air Force Captain Charles "Chuck" Yeager is considered as the first person to break the sound barrier in an airplane when he flew his in a Bell X-1 On 14 October 1947 on a test mission.

Mr. Nair is entirely correct about the crack of a whip and very likely correct about it being the first man made invention to break the sound barrier.
