Oracle and Microsoft have expanded their Cloud partnership to now help customers in Canada run their mission-critical workloads across Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure.

“Our new interconnect location means enterprises can now build workloads that seamlessly interoperate between Microsoft and Oracle cloud regions in Canada. This interconnect builds on an existing partnership announced in June last year,” Vinay Kumar, Vice President, Product Management, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, said in a statement.


The partnership has received a huge amount of interest, as 80 per cent of enterprises use a combination of Microsoft and Oracle software to run their businesses.

These workloads include financial planning, inventory, sales applications — and their underlying databases.

“The expansion will give more customers direct, fast and highly reliable network connectivity between Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud, while providing first-class customer service and support that enterprises have come to expect from the two companies,” said Kumar.

The global demand for running applications and databases in multi-cloud environments continues to accelerate.

“With the new interconnect, our Canadian customers can now take advantage of a nearly seamless cloud integration between the world’s largest enterprise cloud providers, Microsoft and Oracle,” said Clay Magouyrk, senior vice president of engineering, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Lenders began knocking on his door, losses mounted, and his bank account dwindled to nothing. He said, "Dhirubhai's money might have gotten me out of the problem quickly. However, I respectfully declined his offer and gradually began to find work again, which let me pay off my debt."

In comparison to adults, children are prone to getting traumatized by troubling events easily, and this makes it important for parents to help their children when the times are tough. It could be a brutal accident, an unprecedented pandemic, a violent crime, or other disasters but with the right parental support, children have a higher chance of coming out stronger from an awful situation.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

Every child responds differently to disturbing events:
What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
