Engine Yard is coming out with new custom services today that played a pretty important role in helping its customers avoid the now historic Amazon Web Services (AWS) outage last week.It was 1 a.m. PST on April 21 when the first notifications started surfacing that there was a problem with the AWS East region out of northern Virginia. Engine Yard uses AWS as its infrastructure provider, much like Heroku, another Ruby-on-Rails platform. An Engine Yard support technician in Israel first saw the problem and alerted the support team that something was wrong. Later that morning, the Engine Yard team made the decision to use a custom service they had developed that had not yet gone live. Luckily, it worked and gave customers a way to move to the AWS West zone. It required the help of customer support. It was a risk. They had no idea how the service would fare. But in the end, it was a risk worth taking. Engine Yard customers had some downtime at the start of the crisis but were soon up and running once they moved to the West region. Engine Yard averted a major outage.That is in stark contrast to Heroku, which had prolonged outages culminating yesterday with an explanation and apology to its customers for the major service disruption.New FeaturesEngineYard is launching new features today that includes the custom service that allows customers to have a backup in a second region.“We can build custom solutions so environments are replicated so failover can happen in a more regular way,” said Tom Mornini, co-founder and CTO in an interview yesterday. The new features extends Engine Yard’s global reach. Customers now have the choice of any AWS region. Before, Engine Yard was only available in the US-East region. Now the service is available in all five AWS regions, which include a second on the North America West coast; one in Ireland and two in the Asia Pacific region (Singapore and Japan.)New Collaboration FeaturesEngine Yard is also announcing today the availability of new collaborative features that provide controls for a developer to manage multiple projects. In that role, the developer can give permissions, allowing access to other people. Previously, there was one user name and password. People would have to share the same credentials, creating the spectre of anonymous users. SuccessEngine Yard is looking pretty good following the AWS outage. It builds on some great success. The company, which started in 2006, now has 2,000 paying customers. Revenues are strong and it is looking pretty impressive following the AWS outage.For his part, Mornini is philosophical. The company had developed this capability that was available just in time. It was risky to unveil it but it worked.And in the end, that was the difference between success and failure.

Nearly 1000 Participate in Immigration Bill Consultations Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 01 Sept 2015 – Meetings for the public consultation on two important Immigration Laws are set to resume this week. Both will be held this Thursday September 3rd, one at 10am at the Salt Shed in Salt Cay and the other at 6pm at the Regatta Village in South Caicos.The biggest issue within these laws is the fact that the TCI Status Bill is said to create new provisions for the Immigration Commission when it comes to granting status. The commission will be chaired and ultimately under the ruling of the Immigration Minister of the day however it is proposed that two members from the opposition also sit as part of the commissioning body. The commission would meet once a year to consider applications and would also have the power to revocate someone’s status.

When you’re a $5 billion publisher like Time Inc., you can afford to hire someone like David Refkin as director of sustainable development. Indeed, the company has been studying the impact of its entire production process. At the MPA’s 2008 Retail Conference in Tampa, Florida today, Refkin discussed Time Inc.’s efforts in environmental sustainability, offering up figures that give some insight into the company’s impact: The company buys 500,000 tons of paper each year from 53 mills.75 percent of the company’s fiber meets certified sustainable forestry (CSF) standards, up 25 percent from 2002.The carbon footprint of producing one issue of Time is equal to 160 people flying an airplane around the globe.Refkin also said that only one out of six magazines in the home get recycled, and that Time Inc. has partnered with Verso Paper to increase consumer awareness, spending $5 million on outdoor advertising and another $6 million in magazines to push recyclable messaging. To learn more about the publisher’s efforts, keep an eye out for its sustainability report due out in April.
3:04 Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice Powerful women of the Marvel universe Culture Comment Tags The Fearless Girl statue now stands outside the New York Stock Exchange. Timothy A. Clary/Getty Images Tuesday is Equal Pay Day. The topic, trending on Twitter, puts a spotlight on the pay disparity between women and men. While more attention is being focused on the inequality in pay, not every company is putting its money where its mouth is. A report published Tuesday by investment-research company Morningstar said that State Street Global Advisors, the New York company that commissioned the Fearless Girl statue, voted against a number of gender diversity initiatives. The bronze Fearless Girl statue, created by Kristen Visbal and installed in 2017, stood defiantly in front of the Charging Bull in Manhattan’s Financial District. It became a tourist attraction and was seen by some as a symbol for women in leadership. It was moved in December to the New York Stock Exchange. Morningstar’s report found that State Street’s Gender Diversity fund, known as SHE, didn’t have a voting record in line with its stated goals of “closing the gender gap” by “strengthening gender diversity and inclusion practices across corporate America.” SHE voted no or abstained on eight of the 10 gender diversity-related shareholder resolutions in a four year period, according to Morningstar. In an emailed statement, a spokesperson for State Street said that examining its voting record based on shareholder proposals doesn’t tell a complete story on how the company approaches gender issues.”We do not simply consider the topic being addressed in a shareholder proposal when deciding how to vote, rather we vote on a case-by-case basis, taking into account each company’s unique circumstances and the level of disclosure relative to our expectations,” the company said.State Street said it has been vocal about the importance of diversity the last few years and voted against directors over “1,000 times” for lack of board gender diversity. Equal Pay Day is an annual maker that symbolizes how far into a year women would have to work in order to have earned as much as men did in the previous year. So, for a white woman to match a white man’s 2018 salary, she’d have had to work through 2018 and continue on till April 2. The exact day can change every year, and it also varies depending on ethnicity. In 2019, black and Asian women reach parity in August, while Latinas don’t reach parity until November.Originally published April 1 at 11:23 a.m. PT.Update, 1:06 p.m.: Adds comment from State Street. 1
