Currently an airplane trip can be powered with a vast sea of algae, which grow near many of the major airports of the world, this is a renewable energy project that is being implemented for four years to somewhat mitigate the harmful consequences caused by the greenhouse caused largely by the use of fossil fuels. Some of the giants of the Aeronautics as British Airways and Airbus industry are supporting the project from Cranfield University in the United Kingdom to investigate ways of harvesting algae to fuel aircraft in commercial quantities. ere. The main objectives of this project are to improve the efficiency of fuel from here until the year 2050. the best airlines and aviation companies are improving their efficiency in fuel used in around 1.5 percent per year, but the whole aviation industry is growing a 4 and 5 percent a year. Similarly, to maintain this growth and the current levels of optimization are taking other measures, including the use of alternative fuels in low carbon and economic incentives, but as is needed to counteract the effects of climate change until it’s too late. Cranfield researchers argue that the algae present are a better option than other biofuels that do not compete with land for food production. Technology already allows the use of biofuels in planes, but the challenge is to produce large amounts of this alternative and renewable energy.

A great advantage of the algae is that it can be harvested every 7 to 12 days, this gives to get 30 to 50 harvests a year, compared with a year compared to conventional crops. The big problem is to get sufficient biomass to cater to the industry without having an adverse effect and not going to provoke an environmental collapse in nearby years. The researchers also examined whether algae can be grown near airports to avoid the environmental costs in the distribution of fuel in the world. If you have to use tanker trucks to carry it and put it around the world, it would not be something ecological, would have a strong impact on the environment and much less would be viable. The solution to the aviation fuel is likely come from a variety of sources and this is only one of them. If there is a lesson in all forms of renewable energy, is that you there is an only means of finding it. The key to sustainability is to not put all your eggs in one basket.

Network Everything

The main objective of the system administrator in an organization operating a fleet of computer maintenance and network equipment in working condition. And this problem is difficult to solve without constant monitoring hosts on the network. Under the host is usually described as any device with network interface and connected to a network: a computer, server, switch, network printer, etc. Monitoring hosts is usually in Periodic functional testing of certain services, ports and protocols. The most common way – sending special ICMP requests and waiting for the response to them (ping). One of the critical parameters to be monitored – response time of the device. It allows us to estimate utilization of the device and the communication channels. Ways of monitoring host can be any number and their choice depends on the tasks performed by the device.

For example, to web-server can be used by operation http-protocol to the switch – reading and analysis of options for SNMP, and so on. What also helps the system administrator to monitor hosts and why it is necessary to carry out its on a regular basis: 1. Reduction of production costs in IT. Monitoring hosts minimizes the time required to identify the problem and, therefore, allows organizations to save money. 2. Increase productivity.

Automatic monitoring of the hosts can depart from the usual for someone to manually verify that the network device. This allows the system administrators save time and spend it on more important issues, such as improving network performance, introduction of new software to enhance information security companies, etc. 3. Increasing customer loyalty. Customers do not go away just because a single negative experience with the service. Typically, a user refuses to use the services because of the constant disruptions of service. It is therefore important in the minimum time to eliminate not only major damage, but minor delays. Monitor network hosts will increase system stability and increase "the percentage of trust" your customers to you. 4. Planning upgrade the network infrastructure to increase bandwidth. With continuous monitoring using the host response time, you can identify bottlenecks in the network, locate faulty equipment and time to replace it. The article lists only some aspects of monitoring hosts. As it is evident that this procedure is an integral part of the technical staff of IT companies any scale. Summing up some, I would say that pre-emption, prevention, timely response to problems of network equipment can save time and hassle of employees and protects against loss profits and customers.
