Technology company Google Cloud has launched BigOmni Query, a multi-cloud analysis tool, to ease customers’ data transfer and processing in hybrid cloud computing.The software allows customers to access and analyze data from Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services (AWS) through a single interface. The service will also be available for Microsoft’s Azure in the coming future.“Moving data from multiple clouds is troublesome and expensive. To overcome this, we invest in multi-cloud fields to democratize data accessibility, whatever cloud service providers customers use,” said Google Cloud general manager and vice president of engineering Debanjan Saha on Tuesday during the opening of Google Cloud Next OnAir event. She went on to say that customers could move the data through BigQuery Omni without having to pay data transfer fees from other cloud services providers.Google Cloud Indonesia country director Megawaty Khie said companies were increasingly adopting hybrid cloud options, creating demand for simple multi-cloud solutions that enabled them to work with their existing infrastructure.“The launch of BigQuery Omni is an important milestone that demonstrates our strategy in helping customers operate efficiently in a multi-cloud environment,” she said. Google Cloud, which is available in more than 150 countries, also announced its confidential computing portfolio which encrypts data while in use or while in transit, ensuring customers’ data security.“We are sure that the future of cloud computing will be about private and encrypted services, which give customers more control and privacy over their data,” Megawaty added.The company’s security general manager and VP Sunil Potti said various industries such as financial services, health care and government were often bound by complex and strict regulations on data privacy, making it difficult for them to adopt multi-cloud solutions.“Our confidential computing will help them to use cloud technology innovations while simplifying security operations,” he said.Topics :

Fifth wicket NEW DELHI (AP): Jos Buttler struck an unbeaten 66 and Chris Jordan grabbed 4-28 yesterday to help England knockout defending champions Sri Lanka and advance to the World Twenty20 semi-finals with a 10-run victory. Buttler struck eight fours and two sixes in a blistering 37-ball innings that helped England reach 171-4 in their last Group 1 match, despite struggling at 99-3 off 15 overs after being put in to bat. Sri Lanka collapsed to 15-4 off three overs before captain Angelo Mathews led a spirited fightback with 73 not out before the innings ended on 161-8. The game had looked in England’s control for much of Sri Lanka’s innings before Mathews clobbered five sixes and three fours off 54 balls to take his team to within striking distance. England spinners Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid conceded 63 runs between them in four overs – each going for 21 in one over – as Sri Lanka got back on track. Mathews added 80 runs for the fifth wicket with Chamara Kapugedera (30) after Tillakaratne Dilshan (2) and Dinesh Chandimal (1) had failed. With 22 runs needed off the last two overs, Jordan conceded just seven runs and took two wickets in the 19th over and Ben Stokes – who hit six valuable runs off his one ball as a batsman – conceded only four in the final over as Mathews decided to keep the strike and go for boundaries. Mathews, who struggled to run towards the end with a hamstring injury, could only manage two sets of two runs in the over as Stokes fired in full-length deliveries. England will face New Zealand in the semi-finals on Wednesday if West Indies beat Afghanistan in their group match.
GLENDALE – For the first time in more than a decade, Glendale could have no winter shelter to save the homeless from the cold this year. No group has applied to run the shelter at the Glendale Armory, which serves homeless people suffering from mental illness and drug addiction. “They have to find someplace to go when there’s inclement weather,” said Bruce Nelson, director of community services at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. “If we don’t have (the shelter) there will be people who will suffer exposure and they will get sick.” The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority funds similar shelter programs in Santa Clarita, Sylmar and other parts of the county, said David Howden, a funding manager for the agency. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.This year, no one had applied to run the shelter in Glendale when the deadline passed Sept. 19. It is supposed to open Dec. 1. LAHSA is still accepting applications from any group willing to run the center. Last year, 133 homeless people a night stayed at the center, Howden said. The YMCA of Glendale ran the shelter for several years, but stopped in 2006. The group had to use its own money because LAHSA didn’t provide enough funds, said John Thomas, president and CEO of local YMCA. Volunteers of America ran the winter shelter last year, but that group has not applied to run it this year. Glendale has nearly 300 homeless people on any given night, 79 of them chronically homeless and 85 of them children, according to a report to the city’s Housing Authority. In a report released last week, LAHSA said the San Fernando Valley has 6,411 homeless people every night. PATH Achieve Glendale has applied to the county for funding to start a 24-hour, year-round shelter with 25 beds. But even if approved, the $1million program would not start until next year. The agency already runs a 40-bed shelter on San Fernando Court, but that’s exclusively for participants who go through sobriety screening, not for just any homeless person who would use a winter shelter.
