Software Drones OS Assurance Benefits Chart – Jan 2017

Drone Powered OS

Drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), have revolutionized various sectors, bringing significant benefits to society through their diverse applications. In agriculture, drones are used for precision farming, which involves monitoring crop health, soil conditions, and irrigation needs through high-resolution imagery and sensors. This enables farmers to make data-driven decisions, improving crop yields, reducing waste, and optimizing resource usage. By providing real-time data, drones help in early detection of pests and diseases, ensuring timely intervention and minimizing the impact on crops.

In the field of public safety, drones play a crucial role in search and rescue operations, disaster management, and law enforcement. Equipped with thermal imaging cameras and advanced sensors, drones can quickly locate missing persons in challenging terrains or collapsed structures, significantly reducing search times and enhancing the chances of saving lives. During natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes, or hurricanes, drones provide real-time aerial assessments, helping authorities to evaluate damage, plan rescue missions, and deliver aid to inaccessible areas. In law enforcement, drones offer a safer and more efficient means of surveillance and monitoring, aiding in crime prevention and crowd control without putting personnel at risk.

The infrastructure and construction industries also benefit immensely from drone technology. Drones conduct detailed site surveys, monitor construction progress, and inspect hard-to-reach areas such as tall buildings, bridges, and power lines a good model like the DJI Matrice 30t is powerful enough to handle all of this. This not only enhances safety by reducing the need for manual inspections in hazardous locations but also improves efficiency and accuracy in project management. High-resolution aerial images and 3D mapping enable precise measurements and tracking of construction milestones, ensuring that projects stay on schedule and within budget. Drones also assist in maintenance by identifying structural issues early, thus preventing costly repairs and extending the lifespan of critical infrastructure.

Furthermore, drones have become vital in environmental conservation and wildlife monitoring. They enable researchers to collect data on ecosystems, track wildlife movements, and monitor deforestation and illegal poaching activities with minimal human interference. This non-intrusive method allows for better understanding and protection of biodiversity. Drones also assist in environmental disaster response, such as monitoring oil spills, assessing the impact of wildfires, and supporting reforestation efforts through seed dispersal. By providing a bird’s-eye view and access to remote areas, drones contribute significantly to the conservation of natural resources and the preservation of the environment.

Windows Server 2012 and R2 Locks and Limits Hosting

The question came up today about using Windows Server Essentials as a RADIUS server. Part of the consideration involves the arbitrary restrictions placed on the OS. Microsoft differentiates the server products with what are affectionately know as “Locks and Limits”.

Most folks in IT are aware of OS  hosting limits like the number of users in Windows Server or not being able to RDP into Windows 7 Home Edition. But there are other less-obvious limits like RAM or IAS, RRAS & SMB connection limits is probably the most important thing because of the new limitations on the platforms and OS. Hosting is an integral part of what users are doing on the os due to the increase in web services connecting to them.

Fortunately there are two handy spreadsheets that detail the Limits, Roles & Features that are (or are not) available in Windows Server 2012 & R2 Editions.

Windows Server 2012 R2 Locks and Limits

Currently, there is no word yet on Windows Server 2016 since it’s still in Technical Preview at this time. However, once the licensing folks figure out how to squeeze every penny out of Server 2016 (I’m very interested to see what they do with Nano Edition) there should be an updated spreadsheet released.
