Since its inauguration in 2008, the Singapore Grand Prix has more than earned its sobriquet as the Monaco of the East. Much as Monaco is in Europe, Singapore is the pivotal glamour event of the Formula One Grands Prix in Asia and a gathering place for fans, sponsors and the curious throughout the region. Although Singapore has a reputation for being a strictly run city-state, it still manages to have a free and easy party atmosphere, which makes a weekend visit feel something like going to an adult version of Disneyland.   more...

The as-yet unnamed model will be positioned "above today's CTS and XTS product lines," and "will add to rather than replace any model in the portfolio," GM said in a statement. The new model will be in "the elite class of top-level luxury cars," said Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen in the statement.   more...

HONG KONG - China, a country that has enticed most of the world's big multinationals to invest billions of dollars over the past decade with the prospect of selling to 1.4 billion increasingly affluent people, sent its strongest signal yet on Friday of a tougher legal climate for companies. A southern Chinese court imposed a fine of nearly $500 million on the giant British pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline for bribery. After a trial held in secrecy, the court, the Changsha People's Intermediate Court, also sentenced Glaxo's British former country manager, Mark Reilly, and other defendants to prison for as much as three years, according to Xinhua, the official news agency.   more...

The parade of politicians on the Sunday morning talk shows veers to the right, not the left. Conservative members of the current Congress have appeared more often on the network talk shows than their liberal counterparts. Senators and representatives from the conservative end of the ideological spectrum have made 57 percent of the appearances, compared with 42 percent for liberals, according to an Upshot analysis of data collected by American University. This slightly lopsided distribution is primarily the result of three Republican senators' frequent visits to the network shows: John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Mitch McConnell.   more...

Here are some highlights from Mike Werner's Trove Day presentation. Mike is the senior director of global technology ecosystems at Red Hat, and his talk was on the importance of building ecosystems. · Would you rather own 100% of a grape or a portion of a watermelon? OpenStack DBaaS has potential to be a large watermelon in terms of its market potential. · The steps required translating innovation into products and platforms that people can build on include: participate, integrate, stabilize ("productize") with an ecosystem and deliver... · ... And a viable ecosystem around OpenStack is being driven by: The Internet of Things, big data, database-driven applications and the OpenStack community itself. · While DBaaS has been something of a Holy Grail, we think OpenStack will be the enabler with the roots of solving that in this room today.   more...

As applications are migrated to the cloud, the complexity of operating databases in this new environment has become apparent. It is hard to operate a significant database infrastructure even when you have the luxury of doing it in a controlled data-center on dedicated hardware. The cloud introduces performance variability, an overhead due to virtualization and provides an end user with a much lower level of control over the underlying hardware. In the public cloud, reliability of an individual virtual machine instance is considerably lower than that of a dedicated machine in a data-center. When operating a large fleet of servers, observed failures are much more frequent. All of these make operating a database in the cloud much more challenging.   more...
