      Tip of the Week: 3 Ways to Minimize the Chance of Cloud Migration Failure

      InfoWorld discusses this scenario in length: “For example, a large enterprise that migrates 100 applications to an IaaS cloud might discover during testing that the latency is too high for 25 of the applications. The board of directors and leadership were given a plan showing 100 applications migrating to the cloud, and no one wants to communicate a change, so they power through. The result is that those 25 applications don't function well enough to support the business, and that adds up to a big, costly failure.”

      The idea is to acknowledge that your plans may need to be altered, and to change them as such before it becomes a major loss for your business. The appropriate response, as indicated by InfoWorld, is to not move those 25 applications to the cloud. Instead, it’s best to not rush this matter and instead focus on moving them so that they can function properly upon virtualization. The only problem is that there’s more to take into account, like your IT budget. This makes implementing new solutions slightly inflexible--just enough that even the slightest mistake can derail implementation.

      Provide a Sense of Autonomy
      While you may feel the desire to oversee a project one step at a time, it’s best that you don’t. You should entrust the project to whoever’s sole responsibility is to manage your technology solutions. The more hands that are on a project, the more hurdles that the administrator has to go through in order to get the cloud migration finished without incident. You should be able to get IT projects done without having to run every little decision by the chain of command.

      Evaluate and Test Accordingly
      It’s important to realize that your organization will probably experience problems, and that you need to handle them as they occur. Examine how progress is being made and alter your business’s approach to cloud migration based on how well it’s doing. The idea is to address potential problems before they happen, so that you can avoid expensive downtime and delays in the project’s completion.

      Make Adaptation an Accepted Practice
      Your business needs to see the ability to adapt as an asset. It’s one thing to discover a flaw in a plan, but another entirely to find resolutions and swiftly work toward resolving it. This means that you need to do your part to foster this type of acceptance in the workplace. When something goes wrong, don’t point fingers and try to find the one responsible for it; encourage your team to discover the resolution.

      If you need assistance with a cloud migration, Symmetric Engineering Group can help. Our skilled technicians can work alongside your IT staff to guarantee that your cloud project goes off without a hitch. To learn more, reach out to us at (813) 749-0895.

      Your New Galaxy Note 7 Has a 1 in 42,000 Chance of Exploding

      The main problem with the device is the battery itself. An anonymous source states that Samsung outsourced the batteries from manufacturing plants in China and Korea, though batteries received from Korea seem to be the only ones affected by the issue. These batteries explode when the device charges, and so far there have been at least 35 reports of such an incident. Samsung estimates that 1 in 42,000 devices sold will experience the problem, but the company has chosen to recall every single device… you know, just in case.

      You can be sure that Samsung will be reeling from the consequences of this decision for quite some time. Not only does the company have to replace over a million devices, but it also has to deal with the publicity fallout of this recall. There has already been quite a lot of public outcry over the faulty devices--take, for example, this article about a six-year-old whose phone exploded in his hands. Yikes.

      Samsung will likely be in damage control mode for the next few months as they move toward resolving the problem and reassuring their consumer base that the problem won’t happen again.

      Until Samsung gets its act together, customers are likely to turn their attention toward other smartphone options, like the iPhone 7 (though this model still has to worry about ongoing complaints citing its lack of a headphone jack).

      Either way, if you own a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and haven’t adhered to the recall, be sure to do so as soon as possible. Samsung has released a page which details the return process, as well as your options based on your mobile carrier.

      As if Selecting Hardware Wasn’t Tricky Enough, Intel Went and Did This

      Referred to as Kaby Lake, the processor has been better optimized for 4K video handling and editing than its predecessor was, and reportedly improves upon the battery life as well. However, along with the changes made to the architecture were some changes made to the branding, which will almost certainly cause confusion among consumers.

      Before Kaby Lake, Intel essentially had two lines of processors: Core i and Core M. Core i was the stronger of the two options with the i5 and i7 processors, while the Core m5 and m7 were typically put into tablets. However, as Kaby Lake was released, Intel changed the name of their Core M processors so that an m5 is now called… an i5.

      Mind you, there has been no change in the capabilities of the processors, just in the name. The only distinguishing feature between Core M and Core i is now the inclusion of Y or U, respectively, in the SKU numbers included in the extended name of the products. What’s worse, when researching components to include as a part of a workstation configuration, many websites will only display that an i7 processor is included--meaning that it is entirely possible for someone to purchase a less-than-adequate solution for their needs because the SKU numbers are buried in the product specifications.

      While the average consumer would likely notice little difference between the two, business users will need to be especially cognizant of this name change as they select a solution to suit their business. Of course, that’s assuming a business user has the time to research the solutions they will need to continue their operations in such depth, and the focus to spare on ensuring the SKU numbers match the processor to fit their work needs.

      If a business doesn’t have the time to spare digging through minutiae, they could always call Symmetric Engineering Group for assistance. Our expert technicians make sure that solutions are properly devised to meet the expectations any business requires.
