The work is being performed through the Consortium for Command, Control, Communications and Computer Technologies (C5) under an Other Transaction Agreement procurement. C5—a nonprofit organization composed of defense contractors, for-profit and nonprofit organizations, and academic research institutions—offers a uniquely rapid, cost-effective, and collaborative acquisition vehicle to advance the Army’s operational cyber capabilities.Parsons is pleased to support the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology in the critical area of defensive cybersecurity,” stated Mary Ann Hopkins, Parsons Group President. “Our cyber experts are working closely with the government to ensure the continued superiority of the nation’s military technology.”As part of the Army’s global mission in cyberspace operations, DCO within key cyber terrain is conducted by a maneuver defense force that offers commanders quick reaction, cyber defense reinforcement, and security enhancement capabilities. This defense force consists of Cyber Protection Teams that operate within friendly networks and are organized to perform one of five key cyber defensive mission functions: mission protection, discovery and counter infiltration, cyber threat emulation, inspection, and cyber support.Parsons’ effort includes developing physical hardware/networking models to evaluate the technical feasibility of a DDI capability. The DDI prototypes are defensive cyberspace weapons systems that enable real-time protection of critical systems within a specified operating environment, driven by the capability to detect and remove anomalous threat activity. The solution aligns with the C5 emerging software and hardware technology objective and is directly relevant to Army DCO weapons systems.Parsons has delivered cybersecurity services to U.S. government customers for more than 30 years to protect the nation’s most sensitive information and critical infrastructure.

Cloud is just about everywhere and in most companies’ strategies. However, getting and moving to cloud doesn’t always happen as quickly as we hope. The larger your infrastructure is, the more detail is required to plan and migrate while minimizing disruptions to daily operations.But is cloud, specifically public cloud, the best approach for every need, every application, and every company? Or is “cloud-like” a better route?As IT administrators evaluate their cloud options, they may find a number of criteria to support moving to public cloud. They may also find some aspects that are not so favorable. Security, data ownership or data lock-in, flexibility, choice of platforms, available applications, and so forth -– these are some of the key aspects to consider when moving from an on-premises environment, and which may prevent you from fully migrating certain applications, data, and policies to public cloud. But you still want all of the benefits that come with cloud.Enter “Cloud-like”A cloud-like approach could mean evaluating different options to obtain public cloud benefits – such as scalability, economics, flexibility, manageability – but without some of the risks or downsides you have discovered about public cloud for your business, infrastructure and workforce. Perhaps your IT organization knows that running certain workloads with on-premises servers will always provide faster results than cloud instances. Maybe IT also believes that maintaining the data close to compute/servers and not incurring data transfer costs or lock-in will reduce latencies and budgets over the long term. Or it could be that IT really wants to secure data and meet in-region compliance requirements for data privacy, for example, without risking data migration to or in the cloud. Unique scenarios indicate a cloud-like approach could benefit IT as they engage in hybrid IT models.Let’s evaluate servers in a cloud-like approach. To leverage servers in this scenario, a consumption component must be considered to deliver cloud-like economics. This can include approaches like metered consumption or pay-as-you-go, without embarking on buying servers. This approach would also mimic cloud, paying for CPU cycles when needed.Another aspect is how to ensure servers can scale in performance to tackle real-time burst demands for processing data. An expanded capacity (“bursting”) option could be useful.And with servers and data on-premises, businesses can experience cloud-like flexibility while reducing risk of outage or breaches while keeping latency low.Dell Technologies Flexible Consumption for Dell EMC PowerEdge servers enables cloud-like aspects as described prior. This solution from Dell Financing Services can enable you to get the technology you need today to drive business outcomes and predict your IT spend. One of the Flexible consumption solutions include Flex on Demand, which helps you address business requirements with payments that scale up or down to match your usage.*Deliver a similar, “cloud-like” experience on-premiseNot only does Flex on Demand provide a consumption model which is cloud-like while giving you the servers you want with all the bells-and-whistles and full management by Dell, but Flex on Demand also helps IT scenarios such as:Datacenter extension – whether consolidating colocation or hosted operations back into the domain to reduce costs or seeking to support additional workloads for a set period of time (months to years), IT can readily reduce external factors and maintain full control over operations without management overhead.Secured, fully independent environments – ideal for in-region or country requirements to support global privacy, security, compliance standards, servers in a Flexible Consumption program are fully isolated but fully manageable to support global business needsMixed workloads and mixed volatility – real-time, demanding, volatile and retail applications often push servers to maximum operations for a short time before settling back to a normal cycle. A dedicated Flex on Demand approach separates this strain from your infrastructure, and provides the right-sized server choices for your workloads, allowing for these bursts of activity as they appear.With Flex on Demand, IT has an additional consumption approach to obtaining the best PowerEdge servers for their applications, and in a cloud-like economics fashion.Now you have more choices to select the best compute nodes for your business needs. AMD-based PowerEdge servers with Flex on Demand provide new configurations for deployments including web front-ends, cloud hosting servers, and other high-demand, high-transaction environments. Furthermore, Flex on Demand is also available for Dell vSAN ready nodes, further extending the value of cloud-like consumption into your operations model.

PHOENIX — With his win in the Subway Fresh Fit 500, Mark Martin became the fourth NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver 50 or older to go to victory lane.Mark Martin became the fourth driver age 50 or older to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup race with his victory in the Subway Fresh Fit 500.—NASCARThe other three were Harry Gant (52), Morgan Shepherd (50) and Bobby Allison (50).Martin started from the pole and led 157 of 312 laps.“I hoped it would happen,” said Martin. “But I didn’t expect it to happen. I only hoped. But Rick Hendrick, you know, I sat and watched him make Tim Richmond’s dreams come true from being sick, and this may not be as dramatic, but it’s big to me.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“But you know, the response from the competitors means much more than the trophy, and that was an incredible … really, really incredible, from all of the crew guys to all of the guys, including Jack Roush, who seemed genuinely happy. And Jack and I are at tight as we have ever been and have been through all of this.“It’s just, like I said, I hoped it would happen, but you know, it’s asking a lot, man.” Tony Stewart finished a close second.“It seemed like what we fought, we fought all night and it didn’t really change for us. As it got a little bit cooler it got more grip, but that’s Phoenix,” said Stewart. “I think for us, it’s been refreshing. Just when you’ve never had a start like this to the season, it’s nice to finally have one. It’s amazing to think that with a new team we can go out and have this kind of a start to the year.”Kurt Busch ran up front for most of the race and finished third.“I felt like we started the race on the tight side, and then we were having trouble putting the power down off turn four when the sun was out. I ignored how loose the car was on power down because I felt like that would go away with the sun setting, and it did, but we were a bit on the tight side, and so I had to loosen up the race car. When I did that, the crew got me out in front, we led some laps out in the lead and felt comfortable up there.”Jimmie Johnson, Greg Biffle, Denny Hamlin, Martin Truex, David Reutimann, Sam Hornish and Carl Edwards rounded out the top-10 finishers.Top 12 Chase contenders after 8 of 36: 1.

In Week 12, that means the Cowboys and Patriots squaring off in a battle of Super Bowl hopefuls, and the Jaguars and Titans looking to remain in striking distance in the AFC South. The Sunday night game is a highly anticipated matchup between the 49ers and Packers.That leaves the morning slate quite barren. None of the nine early games are between teams above .500. The combined record of the 18 teams is 72-107-1, an ugly .403 winning percentage. In that small pond, the Seahawks facing the Eagles is likely the standout game.Here’s everything to know about Week 12’s NFL games, including a full schedule with TV channels, start times and scores.WEEK 12 NFL PICKS: Against the spread | Straight-up predictions NFL schedule Week 12: What games are on today?Here’s the full schedule for Week 12 of the 2019 NFL season, plus final scores and how to watch every game live.You can keep up with live scores and stats with SN’s live scoreboard.Note: National broadcasts are listed in boldSunday, Nov. 24GameTimeChannelFalcons vs. Buccaneers1 p.m.FoxBills vs. Broncos1 p.m.CBSBears vs. Giants1 p.m.FoxBengals vs. Steelers1 p.m.CBSBrowns vs. Steelers1 p.m.FoxSaints vs. Panthers1 p.m.CBSJets vs. Raiders1 p.m.CBSEagles vs. Seahawks1 p.m.FoxRedskins vs. Lions1 p.m.FoxTitans vs. Jaguars4:25 p.m.CBSPatriots vs. Cowboys4:25 p.m.Fox49ers vs. Packers8:20 p.m.NBCMonday, Nov. 25GameTimeTVRams vs. Ravens8:15 p.m.ESPNMORE: NFL TV coverage map for Week 12How to watch, live stream NFL gamesWeek 12 kicked off Thursday night with an AFC tilt between the Colts and Texans, which Houston narrowly won after a controversial finish. Sunday’s slate begins with an absurd nine 1 p.m. games. None are especially appealing, but the Eagles hosting the Seahawks is one of a few that don’t include a team below .500. Despite being on the road, Seattle will still be the favorites.Both late afternoon games are compelling, with the Cowboys visiting the Patriots and the Jaguars and Titans battling for position in the tight AFC South.The remaining two primetime games of the week will begin Sunday night with the Packers going on the road to take on the 49ers, and on Monday night, the Rams host Lamar Jackson and the Ravens.NFL Week 11 scoresThursday, Nov. 21GameTexans 20, Colts 17Sunday, Nov. 24GameFalcons vs. BuccaneersBills vs. BroncosBears vs. GiantsBengals vs. SteelersBrowns vs. SteelersSaints vs. PanthersJets vs. RaidersEagles vs. SeahawksRedskins vs. LionsTitans vs. JaguarsPatriots vs. Cowboys49ers vs. PackersMonday, Nov. 25GameRams vs. Ravens The Week 12 NFL schedule is as uneven as possible, with just two afternoon games.But this deep in the season, we’re squarely in the flex portion of the schedule, so more of the biggest games will get top billing.
