The U.S. Air Force Looks To Advanced Manufacturing To Keep Existing Aircraft Flying And Develop Next-Gen Capabilities
What if there were Olympic events that weren’t physical, but were focused instead on completely geeking out on super-cool breakthrough technologies for real-world aerospace and defense challenges? Even better, what if they offered prize money totaling nearly a million dollars?
Now there are just such events, thanks to the U.S. Air Force’s Rapid Sustainment Office (RSO). In fact, participants in five such Olympic “sports” (or Technical Challenges, as the RSO calls them) have already been competing over the past few months. Those competitions will culminate when the winners are announced during next week’s four-day Advanced Manufacturing Olympics. This virtual conference runs from October 20-23, and features technology demonstrations, expert speakers from both industry and the military, virtual networking opportunities, and the awarding of prized for those Technical Challenges mentioned above.
“RSO is working to revolutionize sustainment, while building an agile supply chain for the future,” said Nathan Parker, Deputy Program Executive Officer at the RSO. “Originally, we were planning to hold this inaugural event outside Salt Lake City, Utah. But then Covid hit, so we’ve taken the whole thing virtual.”
Event speakers will include military officials such as Barbara M. Barrett, Secretary of the Air Force; General Charles Q. Brown, Jr., Chief of Staff of the Air Force; and General John W. Raymond, Chief of Space Operations of the U.S. Space Force. Other speakers featured are Sebastian Thrun, founder of Google X; Dr. Mae Jemison, NASA astronaut; and Brad Kesolowski, NASCAR Cup Series driver and founder of Kesolowski Advanced Manufacturing.
The five Technical Challenges began with an
OpenDrives Delivers Scale-Out Storage Capabilities with Debut of Powerful New Centralized Software Management System Atlas 2.1
Scales Software Capabilities to Support Enterprise-Grade Businesses Globally with Features Driving Scalability, Operational management, Performance Analytics, and Service Availability
Floating Software Screens
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OpenDrives, the global provider of enterprise-grade, hyper-scalable network-attached-storage (NAS) solutions, announces today the availability of Atlas 2.1, the next version of its software platform and file system that powers all OpenDrives storage solutions. Atlas 2.1 enables a scale-out storage architecture to accelerate performance, power, and flexibility of OpenDrives’ storage lineup, including the recently released Ultra Hardware series. Customers are now able to overcome significant constraints within key functional areas, such as scalability, operational management, performance analytics, and service availability.
“Many people think of storage as purely hardware. While it underpins the processes and interconnections within a storage solution, it’s the software that drives true performance,” said Sean Lee, Chief Product and Strategy Officer at OpenDrives. “Debuting Atlas 2.1 is a significant step towards more fully software-defined storage solutions. We’re proud to reach this milestone, scaling OpenDrives as a boutique hardware company to provide enterprise-grade customers with software that, for the first time, provides customers with the infrastructure they need to enable performance scale-out storage capabilities.”
Atlas 2.1 includes features that allow companies to massively scale outward while maintaining scale-up performance. These features include: storage clustering, distributed file systems, containerization, conditional automation, centralized management and visibility, cloud storage support, and high-availability.
Storage Clustering allows individual scale-up devices, or nodes, to be aggregated together forming a cluster. This parallel distributed architecture enables balanced workloads among cluster nodes without sacrificing performance hits such as increased latency.
Containerization brings functions such as compute and the application itself closer to where the data resides in our storage. While many vendors commonly approach containerization from the compute side,

In case you are new to pc programming, it is important to understand some common concepts and rules. The group of Test containers is sort of accomplished but don’t you assume it would be higher if we let the user know what she or he is expected to do with the languages. However object oriented programming eliminates this redundancy by encapsulating all of the attributes of a polynomial inside a category.
For example you may have one operate prototype in C program for including two integer numbers (i.e. int add(int, int)) but along with prototype you even have to write logic how that operate will behave (respect to above prototype; how you’ll utilize these two handed integer worth and the way you will return worth) when you will call that function.
In 1-D array i need access the all array components to the other features too different capabilities and i need to doing really quick kind so i’ve change index of array all times. Each languages are open-source and multi-platform. The issue may be divided into smaller manageable portion known as Objectsâ€ in Object Oriented programming and each solved by writing a Class code for every defined object.
In an ideal world, class users refer to class documentation (JavaDocs for instance) instead of browsing class source code to discern performance. Another type of primitive operate is the specialized operate, which is utilized by a developer, to have the ability to sort arrays and invert matrices.…
