Dominic shaking Stephen's hand

Dominic Boulle of MIGSOLV welcomes Spicule to the Data Centre

Our customers will always be our number one priority”

— Stephen Downie (Technical Project Manager)

NORWICH, NORFOLK, UNITED KINGDOM, July 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Spicule, the UK’s most exciting data management startup whose clients include NASA, Netflix and the UK and US governments, are relocating their private cloud to East Anglia’s high-security MIGSOLV data centre. The move won’t only consolidate Spicule and MIGSOLV’s existing tech partnership, which has proved highly successful since the two companies joined forces in late 2018, it will also provide Spicule’s new and existing customers with even more choice, flexibility, processing power, and data + hardware security.

“When we initially partnered with MIGSOLV to launch our private cloud service, we wanted to offer businesses a seamless way to migrate from the public cloud to a more cost-effective private solution,” says Stephen Downie, Spicule’s Technical Project Manager, “and a lot of our customers quickly saw the advantages they could gain, especially when running significant amounts of data on increasing numbers of virtual servers. For those customers, the public cloud had ceased to be a viable or affordable option and our partnership with MIGSOLV means they can painlessly migrate to their own bespoke private infrastructure, reduce their overall costs and enjoy the highest level of data and hardware security possible.

“So, when the time came for us to relocate our own private cloud from its existing data centre, of course we wanted to move into the MIGSOLV data centre as well!”

However, it isn’t only Spicule who will be gaining from this new arrangement – their customers will too.

“Our customers will always be our number one priority,” explains Stephen Downie, “so this move doesn’t only further our partnership with MIGSOLV, it also builds upon the tremendous advantages we already offer to businesses and organisations looking for an affordable first-class public-to-private cloud migration solution, especially if they’re managing huge amounts of data and have unwieldy racks of physical servers cluttering up their office or headquarters.

“The Spicule / MIGSOLV private cloud service lets businesses own their own unique private cloud, completely stored and managed by MIGSOLV and Spicule. While Spicule will supply the software and expertise to safely migrate and manage the business’s existing data, including an infrastructure tailormade to meet the client’s precise needs, MIGSOLV’s data centre will house the client’s hardware in its heavily guarded Gatehouse facility and provide protection from theft, terrorism, or fail-over disruptions like power outages and connectivity problems.

“Our partnership with MIGSOLV really does offer the ultimate big data management peace-of-mind solution. As far as we’re concerned there’s no better way to demonstrate that than by moving our own private cloud into the MIGSOLV data centre and extend even more benefits to our new and existing customers in the process.”
For more information, contact Spicule on 01603 327762 or email info@spicule.co.uk. Further information about MIGSOLV can be found at www.migsolv.com

Revolution Maker In Small Satellite Engines Wants To Reach European Students and Enthusiasts

SpaceLab EU logo

SpaceLab EU dedicated to aerospace R&D and commercialization

SpaceLab EU reaching out to students for ideas on their air-breathing ion-propulsion engine first cargo to test no-fuel-needed engine on very low orbits.

PRAGUE, PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — SpaceLab EU has made two open calls focused on European university students and aerospace enthusiasts! The first call is reaching out to the community for suggestions and potential co-development of initial testing-flight satellite cargo. The second call is focused on the long term vision of creating European constellation of satellites on very low orbits providing free internet connectivity.

Petr Palan of SpaceLab EU says: "With our Open Calls we aim to spice students' enthusiasm about space-related topics and European space presence. We also hope to strengthen the connections to the aerospace community and if it will connect us with new talent to push the project forward, we will be happy."

Sign-up to receive more details and compete to have your suggested cargo go to space or to receive a monetary prize!

The project we are working on is a unique air-breathing ion propulsion engine that allows satellites to maintain their position on a very low orbit. The engine thrust is created by accelerating the residual atmosphere of the Earth and no longer needs any other fuel. The project of the new engine type is a response to increased users' demand for the small-satellite fleets operation and improvement of the economy of their operations, including prolonging their service life. It is a unique opportunity globally to make very low orbits accessible to satellite traffic. The benefits of operating on a very low orbit are obvious in the fields of communications as well as in the field of visual monitoring of the Earth.

The future development prospects for the project are in the area of own satellite fleet(s) operations and providing satellite-as-a-service solutions.

SpaceLab EU SE is the entity dedicated to space research and its global commercial use. The air-breathing ion-propulsion project was launched thanks to the group of European enthusiasts and investors joint under the hDock42 brand, which is focused on the promotion and commercial development of European know-how.

SpaceLab EU closely cooperates on this project with The Czech Aerospace Research Center (VZLU) as a national center for research, development, and testing in aviation and astronautics. (https://www.vzlu.cz/en)

Saf-T-Lite "Trouble-Lights" still made in America – REALLY?

Launched in 2007, America's Business to Consumers provides consumers a venue for U.S. products. Saf-T-Lite "Trouble-Lights" Featured.

If every American purchase one U.S. made product per year the impact would be $9 billion. That creates an amazing amount of jobs for USA workers!””

— J. J. Anayannis

GAITHERSBURG, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — America's Business to Consumers Inc., (USAB2C.com) provides a venue for consumers to find U.S. made products. Given a choice between items made in America and similar items made overseas, consumers would rather buy the American product, according to a nationally representative survey by the Consumer Reports National Research Center.

Made in USA products offered run the gamut from: toys, to tools, homegoods, towels, work & dress gloves, kitchen gear, work & trouble lights, decorative windmills, sunglasses, children's shoes, scissors, office clocks, nail clippers and more.

This month, Saf-T-Lite® work-lights are featured.
Saf-T-Lite® products are built tough for the professional user. Saf-T-Lite® fluorescent lights come with soft end caps, steel hooks, and tough polycarbonate outer tubes to last the long haul. The Saf-T-Lite® design concept is to build a cool operating light and protect all the electrical components inside a closed chamber.

Established in 1962, General Mfg., Inc. was the first company to offer portable fluorescent lighting to the automotive aftermarket. At the time, the company operated out of a small shop in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The light design of a cool operating fluorescent lamp and all electrical components inside the light fixture protected by a hard outer tube and soft end caps necessitated a brand name that indicated the newfound safety. The Saf-T-Lite® brand name quickly became recognized for its leadership in safety and durability.

After great initial success, the owners felt the company was getting too big and decided to sell. The company was sold changing hands several times until 1986 when the current owners purchased General Mfg. and all of its assets. At the time of purchase, the company had 1 employee and two light offerings; a 15-watt fluorescent light and an incandescent trouble light.

Today, General Mfg. has three facilities in Bluffton, Indiana, two for manufacturing and one for warehousing of raw materials. The product line has grown from a single fluorescent work light to hundreds of lighting, non-tipping wobble lights, and power supply products. Markets currently being served include Automotive Aftermarket, Industrial, Heating, Plumbing & HVAC, Hardware, Original Equipment Manufacturers, Government, Military, and numerous Specialty markets. .

Chief Operations Officer George P. Hanos relayed, "USAB2C is a modern day marketplace in the tradition of the ancient Greek 'Agora'; a virtual channel where consumers and American manufacturers come together to exchange ideas, concerns and conduct business. On USAB2C.com, customers can browse an online catalog and order products sourced from USAB2C Certified American through a safe and secure website. The effort to uncover American made products is ongoing.”
USAB2C founders are intent on providing USA products that minimize exposure to some inferior materials found at times in Asian imports, particularly seen in toys. The “Made in the USA News” section presents consumers with daily stories dealing with “PRODUCT RECALLS,” new product introductions and related retailing / safety news.
Consumers can submit inquiries to USAB2C directly on the "CONTACT US" page: https://www.usab2c.com/page/contact.

About America's Business to Consumers Inc.
America's Business to Consumers Inc. is a private company experienced in retail marketing, consumer research and e-Commerce.

University of Management and Technology Alum Authors Book on Stakeholder Management

2018 UMT Graduates

George Jucan, PMP, CMP, MBA in Project Management, 2018

2018 Graduates Celebration

Working with the full range of players who can impact your project

As Jucan notes, it is not clear that you can manage the stakeholders who are affected by your project, or can have an impact on it. But you can certainly engage them.”

— J. Davidson Frame, PhD, PMP, PMI Fellow, UMT Academic Dean

ARLINGTON, VA, USA, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — University of Management and Technology alum George Jucan, PMP, CMP (MBA in Project Management, 2018) has authored a book about identifying and working with stakeholders, titled A Pocket Guide to Stakeholders' Engagement, published in 2017. The standard business school approach to working with stakeholders is given the name "stakeholder management." George takes a different perspective, questioning whether stakeholders — particularly those outside of immediate reach — can actually be managed. He holds that we should be engaging stakeholders rather than managing them, to ensure their support as they can make the difference between success and failure. Too often, in carrying out our work, we do a reasonable job of identifying obvious players that need to be reckoned with, but we often lose sight of second ring and third ring players whose support can be crucially helpful or whose animus can derail us. George offers a stakeholder map to enable us to identify what stakeholders we need to be aware of, what impacts they can have, and how they can be engaged effectively.

"The stakeholder map can take the mystery out of identifying and understanding stakeholders by combining their individual attributes with their relationships beyond the organizational reporting structure," George notes. He adds: "Once you truly understand your stakeholders and how they interact with each other and with your initiative, you can efficiently plan and execute your project efforts to fulfill their stated and implied needs. One thing is certain: if you are oblivious to their perspectives, you will find yourself encountering unpleasant surprises."

George Jucan is a 2016 UMT Project Management Institute Education Foundation (PMIEF) University Masters Scholarship recipient. UMT has pledged 2 million dollars over the last decade to support the PMIEF, a charitable nonprofit organization that helps to prepare tomorrow's workforce through academic scholarships awarded to students pursuing project management related degrees.
