cocoriko.org Website Launch

GATINEAU, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 12/17/12 -- cocoriko.org is a brand new bilingual social media that offers a refreshing venue for citizens to speak up and express their choices and opinions.

Inspired by communication tools and virtual networks such as Facebook YouTube and Twitter, cocoriko.org is the initiative of an entrepreneur of the National Capital Region, Yves Alary, chartered accountant and business consultant.

Since 2009, Alary, over countless meetings, convinces colleagues and partners, such as DIUM, to share their expertise and efforts to plan, design and realize this project.

"...The name Cocoriko stands for awakening - the voice of citizens from around the world. This website, cocoriko.org, is there to put forward societal demand initiatives of recent years while giving users a place for structured reflection. COCORIKO encourages people to participate and vote on fundamental issues that have direct influence on how our society works, while helping people get a clearer idea on what they deeply wish for by looking at THEIR common vision of an ideal world. Simple, amusing and inspiring, cocoriko.org brings a refreshing way to look at regional, national or global issues and contributes to democratic life." Yves Alary

Driven by the idea of creating a better world, the originator of the idea and the COCORIKO(TM) team have created a rallying tool that offers countless subjects of interest and issues raised and discussed by users. Cocoriko.org is open to all. Each and everyone is invited to create, organize and comment all of its content.

Interventions and polling results on proposals posted on cocoriko.org website encourage discussions on the issues, but also on values and viewpoints in society, in particular as they are related to the sociodemographics of participants. Users may also add links to websites, videos or other related resources that help further discussions between stakeholders by presenting arguments in favour of different positions.

Constantly evolving, cocoriko.org will unveil new functionalities that will enhance user experience and efficiency, over the coming months.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
