Head in the clouds?

Did you know that the FBI could take a copy of your data held in New Zealand if they got legal permission in the US first, and you might never even know it?

Some Maori are expressing concern about the offshore control of New Zealand data.
Photo: 123rf

This, and a host of other reasons, inspire Maori to gain more control over their own data by building cloud storage here.

The cloud – it’s basically someone else’s internet-connected computers that you can put data on and get help working on it from anywhere in the world you are – has the counterpart that it most often means that someone else has access to your data.

And if that cloud storage owner is based in the US or Australia, those countries have specific laws that apply to it – and that gives their agencies like law enforcement the ability to access it. : United States through his ‘Cloud Law’ and Canberra through its Anti-encryption laws of 2018.

This is at the end of the cloud control problem. And if you’re not a criminal, you might not have much to worry about.

But there are many other concerns, and yet the trend is increasingly to “offshore” more and more data, led by the government.

A new report questions that and outlines ways to change things. It is by Professor Tahu Kukutai and the operational arm Te Kāhui Raraunga of the Data Iwi Leaders Group.

“Agencies are rolling out all these different initiatives – most of them are doing it without any adequate commitment,” Professor Kukutai told RNZ.

“Instead of just making these one-sided decisions to outsource not just Maori data, but in fact all New Zealander data… Maori need to be involved in system-level decisions.”

In 2012, the government was worried enough about data misuse and loss of control, it small agencies using office productivity public cloud services.

But by 2016 a cloud-first policy had entered. As the country lacked major cloud providers, this led to offshoring.

Lingering concerns were allayed when the Privacy Commissioner decided to store their data in Australia with Microsoft in 2018.

Industry player RNZ, who agreed not to name, said: “A lot of agencies saw this as a green light.

“The data sovereignty issues are almost a lost cause because everything has moved very quickly to Microsoft and Amazon, and if you try to swim against the tide, it’s very difficult.”

The implication since 2016 is that offshoring is a no-brainer for safety, cost and convenience.

But Professor Kukutai’s study calls into question that, by saying that onshore, local ownership can be very secure.

“We are simply pointing out that the offshore solution, owned by foreigners, is not as beneficial as current government rhetoric suggests,” the report said.

Professor Kukutai said there had to be a choice, for the good of all.

“It actually has to be a strategic investment in a wider range of options, and taking a cross-generational approach to data, as taonga, means we can actually start investing locally – it doesn’t just mean putting our data in AWS in Sydney,” she said.

AWS, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft dominate cloud services globally.

Masses of New Zealand government data are with Amazon in Sydney, although the two US giants have pledged – with few details – to spend billions to build cloud storage there.

NZTech said AWS is building in Auckland with the data center scheduled to operate in 2024.

For eight years, there has also been a locally owned option, Catalyst Cloud.

It just got government approval for public agencies to use it — “level playing field now,” said Don Christie, who runs its parent company, Catalyst IT.

Christie has business reasons for talking about losing control of the cloud, pointing out that Europeans are getting nervous and looking for local providers.

He said the government embarked on outsourcing in 2016 and is not listening now.

“We often hear that there is a technical decision made to choose an overseas service, and that it is above someone’s compensation to consider data sovereignty issues and what it happens,” Christie told RNZ.

“And it seems to me that most people just push it away as something they don’t want to have to think about.”

The government is currently in the process of refreshing the cloud-first policy.

The Data Iwi leadership group told RNZ that it had had two or three meetings with officials, who it said seemed very keen to address the absence of Te Tiriti, Te Ao Māori – worldview Maori – and Maori data sovereignty in existing policy.

Entrepreneurs like Ben Tairea don’t wait. It sows micro-clouds of sovereignty – computers in people’s closets that they can connect to from anywhere in the world.

“That’s exactly what we see happening.

“We have iwi, hapu, whenua, marae trusts that have these computers hosted anywhere, you know, it could be in someone’s house.

“You know, I personally have my own pātaka or family cloud server that’s running in a little closet in my living room,” Tairea said.

Palmerston North co-founder of the whakapapa digital check-in site Ahau said it takes a bit of tech savvy and gets around the problem of aligning your values ​​with the values ​​of a big cloud service. , and your pocket with their fees.

Tairea said the government may be consulting heavily on offshoring cloud services and other digital moves, but if that’s the case Maori can’t see it and it needs to become more transparent.

When manufacturing techniques transform metals, ceramics, or composites into a technologically useful form, understanding the mechanism of the phase transformation process is critical to shaping the behavior of these high-performance materials. However, it is difficult to see these transformations in real time.

A new study in the journal Nature, led by Professor Guangwen Zhou of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Thomas J. Watson College of Engineering and Applied Science and the Materials Science Program at Binghamton University, uses transmission electron microscopy (TEM) to observe the transformation oxide-metal at the atomic level. Of particular interest are mismatch dislocations that are always present at interfaces in multiphase materials and play a key role in determining structural and functional properties.

Zhou’s students, Xianhu Sun and Dongxiang Wu, are the first co-authors of the paper (“Dislocation-induced stop-and-go kinetics of interfacial transformations”). Sun recently completed his doctoral thesis and Wu is a doctoral candidate. Other contributors are Lianfeng Zou, MS ’12, PhD ’17, now a professor at Yanshan University, and doctoral student Xiaobo Chen; Professor Judith Yang, Visiting Assistant Research Professor Stephen House, and Postdoctoral Fellow Meng Li of the Swanson School of Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh; and scientist Dmitri Zakharov of the Center for Functional Nanomaterials, a US Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility at Brookhaven National Lab.

By using the advanced technique, Zhou said, “Manufacturers can be able to control the microstructure and properties of current materials and design new types of materials.” There is a certain practical importance to this research, but there is also a fundamental meaning.

The experiments tested the transformation of copper oxide into copper. Direct observation of such interface transformation at the atomic scale is difficult because it requires an ability not only to access the buried interface, but also to apply chemical and thermal stimuli to drive the transformation.

By using environmental TEM techniques capable of introducing hydrogen gas into the microscope to drive the oxide reduction while simultaneously performing TEM imaging, the research team was able to atomically monitor the interfacial reaction. Surprisingly, the researchers observed that the transformation of copper oxide to copper occurs intermittently because it is temporarily halted by mismatching dislocations, a behavior similar to a stop-and-go process regulated by fires. traffic.

“This is unexpected, because common sense accepted by the materials research community is that interface dislocations are the locations to facilitate transformation rather than retard it,” Zhou said.

To understand what was at work, Wu developed computer codes to explain what they were witnessing in the experiments. This back-and-forth process between experiments and computer modeling helped the team understand how misfit dislocations control the long-range transport of atoms needed for phase transformation.

“This iterative looping process between experiments and computer modeling, both at the atomic level, is an exciting aspect for materials research,” Zhou said.

The fundamental information could prove useful for designing new types of multiphase materials and controlling their microstructure, which can be used in various applications such as load-bearing structural materials, electronic manufacturing, and catalytic reactions for clean energy generation and environmental sustainability.

After collecting the initial data at Binghamton, Sun and the research team repeated the experiments on Pitt’s and Brookhaven’s equipment, which have different capabilities.

“It’s a collaborative work. Without the facilities at Brookhaven Lab and the University of Pittsburgh, we can’t see what we need to see,” Sun said. “Also, in the later stages of analyzing my data, I discussed the results with Judy, Meng, and Dmitri several times. I remember when we finished the first draft and sent the manuscript to Dmitri, he told me that maybe we should include some equations to confirm our observed results, and he sent some relevant literature, so now we can show that these calculations agree with our experimental results.

Yang also called the search a “really nice partnership” that brought together the best people from Binghamton, Pitt and Brookhaven.

“The ability to use advanced tools is one of the things that underpins new science, as illustrated here,” she said. “Brookhaven has an exceptional microscope that can withstand environmental stresses at higher pressures than the one we have at the University of Pittsburgh, and it has higher analytical capability. But the one from the University of Pittsburgh is a good high-resolution transmission electron microscope that can accept gas, it’s a more robust microscope. There is also more research time available.

She used an analogy to explain why it’s important to see chemical reactions happening in real time: “When you buy fish and it’s packaged, you can’t understand much about that fish as opposed to seeing fish in a real environment.”

Because DOE National Laboratories can offer state-of-the-art instruments and high-caliber expertise that complement what is available in academia and high-tech industry, they can help researchers – especially those at the start of their careers – to take their work to the next level, in most cases for free.

Zakharov said he was happy to have played a part in this materials research: “The power of the technique is that it is a direct method to see all these dislocations and phase transformations. You can control the reaction and you can go back and forth to observe the behavior of these dislocations in the interfaces. There is no other technique with such direct observation.

Sun – who now works at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, also a DOE national laboratory – is happy that this research is finally being published.

“I started analyzing this data in March 2018, so it took almost five years to complete this work,” he said. “It’s hard, but it’s worth it.”

This work was supported by the US Department of Energy Basic Energy Science. The research used the electron microscopy facility at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials and the Scientific Data and Computing Center at Brookhaven National Laboratory, which is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Basic Energy Sciences. This research also used environmental TEM from the University of Pittsburgh with the support of a major research instrumentation award from the National Science Foundation.

OpenLM, a Recognized Vendor in the “Gartner Software Asset Management Market Guide, Sep 2021″, is redefining the licensing landscape for engineering and specialty software.

Autoneum achieved a 28% reduction in software license spend through reporting, giving us the confidence to reduce and not hurt our business.”

— Steven Bryant, IT Operations Manager, Autoneum

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, July 30, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Software usage has become an integral part of today’s growing IT infrastructure. With this growth, the purchase of software licenses has experienced a new peak.

That being said about the growing need for software, companies end up buying excess software licenses or simply overbuying them. This undoubtedly digs an extra hole in every organization’s annual IT budget. OpenLM – the software licensing company based in Israel, offers a fast and very efficient solution called “License Harvesting”.

When software is licensed using network (concurrent) or token licensing, it provides organizations with a huge opportunity to optimize their use of expensive licenses. In some cases, OpenLM customers were able to quadruple their license usage.

“Licensing” is a complex feature that must take into account many factors because in most cases the engineering time is more expensive than the cost of the software. Given this, the license collection functionality should not interfere with the engineer’s work. When harvesting a license, the software must ensure that the project is saved safely and that the user can restore the project when needed.

OpenLM uses machine learning algorithms to optimize harvesting functionality while ensuring engineers have access to the software when needed. Several factors are taken into account by OpenLM: license usage, activity, license availability, allocation rules and usage patterns over time.

OpenLM mainly offers four license collection techniques: Save and Close, Suspend and Resume, Manual, and Custom.

As part of the save and close method, a technical parameter is set for the OpenLM tool to identify inactive applications based on the needs of users or organizations. The OpenLM license monitoring tool then logs the user’s work on their workstations and closes all inactive applications to free up the licenses in the license pool.
This is a fully automated process and can be configured for applications like ArcGIS and ArcGIS Pro, AutoCAD (all features that use the acad.exe process), SOLIDWORKS, MATLAB, Catia, Petra, Harmony, Kingdom, etc. .

The suspend and resume method is quite similar to the above method. Here, inactive apps are suspended first, then the license is released and checked into the pool. The suspended application remains frozen until the license is reclaimed by the application itself when the user attempts to resume the suspended session.

Under the manual method, the license administrator identifies all inactive software in the EasyAdmin user interface. Inactive licenses are then released manually at the press of a button. This can be done remotely and globally as needed.

The custom license collection method is a general-purpose license retrieval for licenses managed by any type of license server. OpenLM facilitates this method of collecting licenses by providing a configurable, flexible, script-based mechanism.

As the software industry grows tremendously, OpenLM is fully focused on how to optimize the use of different licenses across multiple industry verticals. And with this “license harvest”, OpenLM has clearly signaled a paradigm shift in the engineering and specialty software license management industry by guaranteeing at least a 25% gain in license utilization. for all industries and all business sectors.

Praise of SQLite https://it-talk.org/praise-of-sqlite/ Thu, 28 Jul 2022 15:13:17 +0000 https://it-talk.org/praise-of-sqlite/ SQLite, the RDBMS that never ceases to amaze, has arrived in version 3.39.2.

SQLite, the RDBMS that never ceases to amaze, has arrived in version 3.39.2. Although this version contains only bugfixes, it builds on major changes that debuted in version 3.39.0.


SQLiteName “never ceases to amaze”or more precisely, imagination uses people, because while SQLite is a relational database management system like MySQL or Postgres, it does not fall under the client-server model. Instead, it integrates into applications that need query access to a data store. The most common examples are its integration into Android applications or web browsers such as Firefox.

Despite its compact size and lack of the client-server model, SQLite is an RDBMS with all the functionality that does something relational – i.e. tables, indexes, constraints, triggers, transactions , etc. However, compared to full-fledged RDBMS like PostgreSQL, some SQL-based features are missing like RIGHT and FULL OUTER JOIN support, but we will see that this latest version finally implements them, and its built-in functions are few- one. This does not mean that SQLite is incapable of more complex capabilities. What about support for JSON query syntax using -> and ->> operators similar to PostgreSQL JSON functions?

Then programming language support. There is almost an API/library for every programming language that needs to speak SQLite. Take for example Python’s sqlite3 standard library under which you can interact with SQLite using Python objects and syntax.

Another advantage is its availability. It’s open source, but not open for contribution, and there are pre-built binaries for Linux, Windows, and Mac. In terms of performance, SQLite is written in C, with no intention of rewriting it in another language. As for why, the authors clearly explain why C is the best language to implement SQLite:

  • Performance
    A heavily used low-level library like SQLite should be fast.
  • Compatibility
    Almost all systems have the ability to call libraries written in C. Other implementation languages ​​do not.
  • Low dependency
    Libraries written in C don’t have a huge runtime dependency. In its minimal configuration, SQLite only requires the following routines from the standard C library
  • Stability
    The C language is old and boring. It is a well-known and well-understood language. This is exactly what you want when developing a module like SQLite. Writing a small, fast, and reliable database engine is hard enough without the implementation language changing under you with each update of the implementation language specification.

Note that the authors refer to SQLite as “module” or “library”.

That said, but as stated above, SQLite has a minor drawback.

There are few built-in functions compared to PostgreSQL or Oracle. Fortunately, the authors have provided an extension mechanism, which allows you to do almost anything. As a result, there are many SQLite extensions, but they are incomplete, inconsistent, and scattered across the internet.

Fortunately, there are attempts to organize them, as does sqlean, a Github repository that brings together all missing SQLite functions under one roof, divided into two categories:

The main set-The most popular functions. They are tested, documented and organized into domain modules with a clear API.

crypto: secure hashes
fileio: read and write files
fuzzy: fuzzy and phonetic string matching
ipaddr: IP address manipulation
json1: JSON functions
mathematics: mathematical functions
topic: regular expressions
statistics: mathematical statistics
text: string functions
unicode: Unicode support
uuid: universally unique identifiers
vsv: CSV files as virtual tables

The incubator-These expansions have yet to make their way to the main set. They may be untested, poorly documented, too broad, too narrow, or without a well-thought-out API.

array: one-dimensional arrays
besttype: convert string value to numeric
bloom: a quick way to find out if a value is already in a table
btreeinfo, memstat, recsize and stmt: various database introspection features
cbrt and math2: additional math functions and bit arithmetic
classifier: binary classifier via logistic regression
closure: navigate in hierarchical tables with parent/child relationships
compress and sqlar: compress/decompress data
cron: match dates to cron patterns
dbdump: exports the database in SQL
decimal, fcmp and ieee754: decimal and floating point arithmetic
define: create scalar and table functions from SQL
envfuncs: read environment variables
eval: execute arbitrary SQL statements
isodate: additional date and time functions
pearson: Pearson’s correlation coefficient between two sets of data
pivot table: pivot tables
prefixes: generate string prefixes
rotation: obfuscation of strings
spellfix: search a large vocabulary for close matches
stats2 and stats3: additional mathematical statistics functions
text2: additional string functions
uint: sorting and comparing natural strings
unhex: reverse for hex()
unionvtab: merge similar tables into one
xmltojson: convert XML to JSON string
zipfile: read and write zip files
zorder: map multidimensional data to a single dimension

As with Postgres, in a sense extensibility is SQLite’s greatest power; it adds unintended utility and value for its users,
and we can witness many imaginative uses of it, provided by the community. For instance :

  • LiteFS
    a FUSE-based filesystem to replicate SQLite databases across a cluster of machines
  • SpatiaLite
    an open source library intended to extend the SQLite core to support full-fledged spatial SQL features.
  • LiteTree
    a modification of the SQLite engine to support branching, like git!
  • Advanced command line shell history
    automatically save your bash history in sqlite3!
  • SQLSite
    a tool to serve simple websites, static files and JSON APIs directly from an SQLite database.
  • Sqlite to rest
    Koa routing middleware to expose sqlite database via RESTful CRUD
  • db to sqlite
    CLI tool to export tables or queries from any SQL database to an SQLite file.
  • sql.js
    SQLite compiled to JavaScript.sql.js is a javascript SQL database. It allows you to create a relational database and query it entirely in the browser

And of course consumer apps like Joplin note taking which uses an underlying SQLite to enforce full-text search on your notes.

After reviewing its virtues and disadvantages, let’s now turn our attention to what the latest version brings:

3.39.1 and 3.39.2 are minor enhancements and bugfixes over major release 3.39.0. This leaves us with an overview of the changes in 3.39.0:

  • Added (long overdue) support for RIGHT and FULL OUTER JOIN.
  • Add new binary comparison operators IS NOT DISTINCT FROM and IS DISTINCT FROM which are equivalent to IS and IS NOT, respectively, for compatibility with PostgreSQL and SQL standards.
  • Add a new return code (value “3”) from the sqlite3_vtab_distinct() interface that indicates a query containing both DISTINCT and ORDER BY clauses.
  • Added sqlite3_db_name() interface.
  • The unix os interface resolves all symbolic links in database filenames to create a canonical name for the database before the file is opened. If the SQLITE_OPEN_NOFOLLOW flag is used with sqlite3_open_v2() or similar, the open will fail if any item in the path is a symbolic link.
  • Defer materialization views until the materialization is actually needed, thus avoiding unnecessary work if the materialization never turns out to be used.
  • The HAVING clause of a SELECT statement is now allowed on any aggregate query, even queries that do not have a GROUP BY clause.
  • Many micro-optimizations collectively reduce CPU cycles by approximately 2.3%.

So much power in a zip file of less than 1 MB. What more could you ask for?
