Lepida's Big Data infrastructure was launched in the production environment, after a period of study and experimentation and an evaluation of possible alternative solutions; the Oracle Cloud was chosen, and in particular the Oracle Big Data Service (BDS) consisting of a Cloudera distribution, engineered and adapted for automatic deployment within the Cloud infrastructure. The architecture has therefore undergone some changes, having to adapt to the new tools made available by clouding.
Allowing a conductor and his orchestra to play together in streaming, live, albeit from different locations: this is the ambitious goal achieved by the project "Orchestra diffusa" of the Foundation Ravenna Manifestazioni, in collaboration with Lepida, BH Audio & Ravenna Streaming, and realized through the staging, last September 30th, of the "Zanetto" by Mascagni at 7 contemporary recording sessions, located in Emilia-Romagna.
The ACTIVAGE project ended with the #ActivageBigDay, a streaming event on Zoom and Youtube, broadcast on October 21st. After all, although the choice was imposed by the limitations due to the pandemic, for ACTIVAGE it was very congenial, since the project is focused on innovation, such as smart living, Internet of things, all connected - and the digital transformation that cancels distances and optimizes paths, not leaving behind the weakest, those who cannot easily move or are forced to stay home.
In the online edition of Modena Smart Life 2020, among the different themes identified, the virtual roads "Strade virtuali" (networks and technological infrastructures) hosted on Saturday, September 26th a live streaming entitled Smart City: la sfida verso la sostenibilità per approfondire i risultati del progetto europeo Trafair (Smart City: the challenge towards sustainability to explore the results of the Europe
There has been a lot of talk about 5G lately. From a simple new technology for cellular systems characterized by high capacity and very low latency, to a system with many antennas distributed in densely populated places to allow to deliver the maximum possible capacity, trying to reduce the transmission power. As usual there are committees in favor of the service and committees against electromagnetic fields. From a health point of view the discussion is to consider thousands of studies, some generic, others focused on the specific 5G system.
In the contest of the ACTIVAGE Project - a “European Multi Centric Large Scale Pilot on Smart Living Environments”, registrations are open to the ACTIVAGE VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE DAY which will take place on wednesday October 21st, 2020 (see the program).
With the month of August, the installation and configuration of the infrastructure that allows to implement Business continuity between the Regional Datacenters of Ferrara and Ravenna, managed by Lepida, were completed. The last step was to connect and configure network and storage devices on two different DCs to activate synchronous data replication at storage level. The operation, opportunely planned, has allowed not to generate any kind of disservice to users.
Last June, Exscalate4Cov, the private-public consortium supported by EU's Horizon 2020 program for research and innovation, has announced an important result achieved with raloxifene.
By the in silico test, the consortium, consisted of Associazione Big Data and other 17 partners coordinated by Dompè Farmaceutici, has already tested 400.000 molecules made available by Dompè Farmaceutici and Fraunhofer Institute.
In the first part, during the virtual test, the priority was given to molecules actually on the market and considered as "safe in man".
