Google Drive is a place where you can safely store your files online and access them from anywhere. When you use Google Drive, your files are stored remotely on the Web instead of your computer's hard drive. This is the main idea behind "cloud computing".
Once your files are online and "in the cloud", you can access and edit them from wherever you are using any standard web browser. You can even use your smartphone or tablet computer to access your files on the go. You can also share your files with people that you choose, making it easier than ever to collaborate with others and get stuff done.
Google Drive also includes an optional free sync program that runs on your computer and keeps files synchronized between a folder on your hard drive and Google Drive on the Web. That way, whenever you create or make changes to a file, either on the Web or on your hard drive, it will automatically be kept in sync between your computer and the cloud.

In this article by Carmel Jacob, author of Citrix Security How-to, we will cover the implementation of content switching.
CS is the ability to redirect traffic based on content file extensions and, going a step further, in redirecting based on geographical locations. Multiple hostnames can be mapped to the same CS VIP using the server name indication feature from NetScaler 9.2 onwards. Starting with the NetScaler version 10 software, the version of MySQL software can be set for content switching virtual servers (this is to avoid compatibility problems between the client and server).Read Content Switching using Citrix Security in full
This article by Porus Homi Havewala (OCM), author of Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c: Managing Data Center Chaos , demonstrates how Cloud Control 12c allows automated patching of Oracle databases in the data center, thus making it possible to easily apply critical patch updates or patch set updates on a quarterly basis. The Patching Designer selects from a list of recommended patches, creates a patch plan template, and publishes it to the Patching Operator, who then creates a patch plan to apply the patch to target databases. After the initial selection, the download, validation and deployment of the patch (single or multiple) is fully automated, thus enabling mass deployment of patches to multiple database homes at prescheduled times. The new feature of out-of-place patching is explained in this article, as is the patch plan templates.Read Ease the Chaos with Automated Patching in full
