ReAgent Invests in Vapour Compression Water Distiller

(PRWEB UK) 28 January 2013

Leading UK chemical suppliers ReAgent have invested in a Vapour Compression Distiller at its new manufacturing site in Cheshire. With an output of almost 100 litres per hour, this is one of the most energy and water efficient means of producing bulk Distilled Water.

The traditional process of Distillation is one of the oldest methods of producing pure water and involves heating water in a vessel until water vapour or steam is created. This water vapour is then collected in a separate vessel, cooled and the resultant liquid is known as Distilled Water.

ReAgent Operations Director Darren Wilson explains, The main benefit of having a Vapour Compression Distiller over a regular Distiller is that it uses less energy and less water to produce Distilled Water. This is because the boiling chamber operates at a reduced pressure which means that the water boils at a lower temperature. Water normally boils and creates water vapour at 100 degrees Centigrade at 1 atmosphere pressure. However, if you lower the pressure, the water will boil at a lower temperature which is what happens in a Vapour Compression Distiller.

By comparison, a standard countertop laboratory Water Distiller will generate approximately 8 litres of Distilled Water per hour whilst generating much more waste water and using far more energy. Home Water Distillers generate about 1 or 2 litres per hour.

The Mueller Vapour Compression Distiller has been a significant investment for ReAgent and is worth well in excess of

WSO2 to Present Technical Webinar on Streamlining Distributed Message Brokering With WSO2 Message Broker

Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2013

Today, most enterprise systems are built with remote procedure call (RPC) style messaging. This requires users to send a request, wait for the response, and process a response using the same thread. However, as simple as this process sounds, there are many scenarios where more advanced messaging patterns are needed. To help IT professionals address this challenge, WSO2 will present a webinar that examines how to simplify distributed message brokering with new functionality being added to WSO2 Message Broker.

The one-hour technical session, WSO2 Product Release Webinar Distributed Message Brokering with the WSO2 Message Broker, will run Thursday, January 31, from 9:00 a.m. 10:00 a.m. PST. For more information, visit

The webinar will begin with a preview of WSO2 Message Broker 2.1.1, including key features and core capabilities. The latest version is based on a new distributed design that provides a cluster of message brokers, which uses Apache Cassandra to store messages and Apache Zookeeper to coordinate message delivery. The session will examine how IT professionals can improve speed and scalability through support for AMQP 0-91 and JMS 1.0, as well as work with other tools from the WSO2 Carbon enterprise middleware platform. Additionally, the webinar will explore how to support asynchronous messaging, publishing and subscribing messaging queues, and persistence.

Jointly presenting the webinar will be Dr. Srinath Perera and Shammi Jayasinghe. Srinath is a WSO2 senior software architect and member of the WSO2 solution architecture team. He works directly with WSO2 CTO Paul Fremantle, specializing in Web services and distributed systems, specifically working with aspects of data, scale and performance on the overall WSO2 platform architecture. Shammi is a WSO2 senior software engineer and member of the WSO2 integration technologies team. He is the release manager for WSO2 Message Broker and provides technology consulting on customer engagements.

How do you create a Chandelier for web design?

Question by Miss.GG: How do you create a Chandelier for web design?
I am creating a website in school and one of our tests is we have to create our own chandelier to be focused on the front page..
Anyone know what I’m talking about??

Best answer:

Answer by seekhealthenterprises
It probably has a more technical definition than what I am thinking. I believe it is basically referring to a Site Map.

It makes me think of creating associations between files in Access so that the main page is displayed first, and other data files are mapped for internal data reference (or linked).

It sounds like the order framework or grid on which you create your pages. I am not a programmer, so don’t ask me about writing the Architecture…no help there. It sounds as if YOU are about to discover it in class!

Logicalis to CIOs: Watch Out! Bring Your Own Cloud Can Quickly Lead to Cloud Sprawl

Farmington Hills, MI (PRWEB) January 16, 2013

Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider,( is warning CIOs about an emerging and alarming – new trend in IT: Cloud Sprawl. Lured by easy-to-purchase and quick-to-install cloud applications, individual departments are finding and deploying their own cloud solutions.

CIOs dont have to look too far today to see the effects of this bring-your-own-cloud (BYOC) movement employees are tapping into free Google Drive space, free Dropbox space, and free space giving themselves more than enough online room to store confidential customer sales and other mission-critical data outside the company firewall and outside of ITs control. Inexpensive cloud applications that don’t require corporate approval are walking through the door unchecked as well from CRM to email to marketing automation. Along the way, BYOC has given way to a new, repackaged phenomenon dubbed cloud sprawl as poorly managed end-user cloud purchases and deployments make for fragmented, redundant, unmanaged and inefficient cloud-based outsourcing decisions with little or no input from IT.

As Windows became widely adopted and developers created applications specifically for the Windows OS, an explosive number of physical servers were needed to run individual applications on a 1:1 basis. The addition of X86 servers for application development, testing and QA, all running at low utilization, resulted in a physical server sprawl that demanded lots of racks, power, cooling and, in general, was an environment that became costly and difficult to manage.

Virtualization offered a one-to-many solution which, over time, resulted in fewer racks, less power consumption, lower cooling requirements, less floor space in the data center and a much easier-to-manage ROI. But utilization in virtual environments is still hovering under 20 percent today because virtual servers allocated to temporary departmental projects are rarely reclaimed and reallocated when the projects are completed. As a result, there is a tremendous amount of server space being underutilized. Without the right management tools and processes in place, this problem goes unrecognized by even the most experienced data center managers. This leads IT pros to mistakenly believe they are out of space and deny new departmental IT requests. Departments are forced to find their own solutions, often leading them to adopt easily accessible public cloud offerings.

Weve managed to move from physical to virtual, which introduced virtual sprawl, and now from virtual to cloud, says Kevin Gruneisen, senior director, Cloud and Data Center Solutions for Logicalis. But without proper management and strategies in place, moving to the cloud in an unchecked manner will result in cloud sprawl and a less relevant IT organization overall.

To avoid cloud sprawl and its inherent dangers and costs, Logicalis is helping CIOs to strategically plan and manage their cloud environments, offering experts four important steps that will help mitigate this looming IT crisis.
