Severalnines, a pioneer in providing automation and management software for database clusters, is introducing the ability to use their flagship product ClusterControl as a Private, on-prem, Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) — as a simple, more cost-effective alternative to public DBaaS offerings. Using a private, full-ops DBaaS, companies can take full advantage of working on bare metal servers where they are the only tenant. This is a great advantage for companies that need to optimize for performance (minimize overhead and latency) and create new services for both the cloud and behind the firewall.
Companies that must follow strict data governance regulations will be able to enjoy the same benefits as you have for cloud databases, but with full control, complete data privacy, and locality.
ClusterControl supports several different open source database technologies with the same benefits of scalability, reduced administration overhead, improved security, and
Huawei’s own operating system, Harmony OS, is almost upon us and it is now clear which phones will run it.

Huawei is about to unveil its latest flagship phones, the Mate 40 Series. The four phones in the series will, like the most recent handsets from the company, launch with open-source Android but without Google Mobile Services such as Gmail, Google Play Store and Google Maps, because of the ongoing issues between the company and the U.S. Government.
These issues prevent American companies, such as Google, from having
Google Play will collect a 30% commission on in-app purchases from 2021
Indian startup founders called these charges “unfeasible”
Google’s Android holds a 95.8% market share in India
More than 150 top Indian startups and businesses, some of them big names, have banded together to challenge Google’s monopoly over the Android app ecosystem in India and build an app store that the country can call its own, TechCrunch reported.
The move by Indian businesses to to build a national altenative to Google Play was prompted by Google’s recent annoucement to force app developers on its store to use its payments system, which takes a 30% cut on transactions including in-app purchases. Reports said founders of leading startups like Paytm, a payments app simiar to Google Pay and is India’s most valuable startup; MakeMyTrip and PolicyBazaar discussed Google’s policy and the concerns on dependence on Google on a call.
Tests for skin treatments could be screened using flatworms rather than other animals such as rabbits, according to new research.
A team at the University of Reading and Newcastle University have found that planaria, a type of flatworm, can be used as a reliable alternative for testing topical skin products used to treat human tissues such as the eyes, nose or vagina to ensure that they are not harmful.
The paper, published in Toxicology in Vitro, shows how the use of a fluorescent dye mixed with a potential skin product is absorbed through the outer layers of skin in the planaria.
The tests are cheaper and more ethical than existing animal tests, because planaria are readily available and easily cultured in a laboratory — and don’t experience suffering. While other tests are carried out on human skin cells in a petri dish, the new screening method would provide a
If you own a company or work in the banking sector, you may be hearing the term “SPAC” 10 times a day now. It seems to be an increasingly common belief that SPACs are becoming the new go-to alternative to private equity fundraising. I traded SPACs in the late ’90s until 2010, and then when I ran a global equity business, we worked with them before the banks came into the craze. And today, I am one of many founders who is keeping a thumb on the pulse of how the SPAC space affects business outcomes.
In summary, a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) is “formed to raise money through an initial public offering to buy another company. At the time of their IPOs, SPACs have no existing business operations or even stated targets for acquisition. Investors in SPACs can range
Lithium (Li)-ion batteries (LIBs) are the electrochemical energy storage systems of choice for a wide variety of applications, however other types of emerging battery technologies are currently on the path to share their dominant position.
Among them Sodium (Na)-ion batteries (NIBs) have great potential to represent the next generation low cost and environmentally friendly energy storage solution. The diverse key performance indicators required by different applications and the market diversification is the driving force pushing the Na-ion technology closer to the market.
A team of scientists including WMG at the University of Warwick combined their knowledge and expertise to assess the current status of the Na-ion technology from materials to cell development, offering a realistic comparison of the key performance indicators for NBs and LIBs.
LIBs play a primary role in the transition to a low carbon economy. However, as the market rapidly expands, the environmental and social challenges associated
The Microsoft Surface Solo smartphone concept popped up online quite recently. This is just a concept design by a well-known designer, which shows a smartphone alternative to the Microsoft Surface Duo.
As most of you know by now, the Microsoft Surface Duo is Microsoft’s take on a foldable smartphone, kind of. This handset does not feature a flexible display, or anything of the sort. It basically looks like two smartphones that are stitched together.
Some people seem to be really interested in the device, though, and Microsoft has a vision for this handset. Based on early reports, the software needs some work, but the company will probably sort that part out.
This Microsoft Surface Solo concept envisions a smartphone that has been rumored for a long time
In any case, a ‘Surface’ smartphone from Microsoft has been rumored for a long time. It has been rumored even when the Windows
