Best Buy Set to Tackle Apple’s iCloud with Cloud Music Service

Best Buy jumps on cloud-based, digital music trend.

Joining the spate of companies that have rushed to offer cloud-based music storage and streaming services, Electronics retailer, Best Buy Co., has also announced that it is bringing its online music platform, which is already operational in the UK, to the U.S. The My Music Anywhere platform as it is known in the U.K. allows users to stream content purchased via computer, mobile phone or tablet, sidestepping the cumbersome computer storage and file transfer process.

The offering echoes recent ideas advanced by Amazon with its Cloud Player and by Apple, which revealed the iCloud platform that promises to sync up personal data and music across desktops and mobile devices along with iTunes integration. Another one from Google, the Google Music Beta service, is still in the works.

The U.S. Music Cloud service is powered by Beverly Hills, California- based Catch Media Inc. and is accessible by mobile devices including Research In Motion Ltd.'s BlackBerry and those operating on the Android platform.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at NVIDIA, focused on some of the unique ways extreme computing is being used on IBM Cloud, Amazon, and Microsoft Azure and how to gain access to these resources in the cloud... for FREE!
Digital transformation has increased the pace of business creating a productivity divide between the technology haves and have nots. Managing financial information on spreadsheets and piecing together insight from numerous disconnected systems is no longer an option. Rapid market changes and aggressive competition are motivating business leaders to reevaluate legacy technology investments in search of modern technologies to achieve greater agility, reduced costs and organizational efficiencies. In this session, learn how today's business leaders are managing finance in the cloud and the essential steps required to get on the right path to creating an agile, efficient and future-ready business.
CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure.
Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, shared success stories from a few folks who have already started using VM-aware storage. By managing storage operations at the VM-level, they’ve been able to solve their most vexing storage problems, and create infrastructures that scale to meet the needs of their applications. Best of all, they’ve got predictable, manageable storage performance – at a level conventional storage can’t match. ...
