As if juggling a life with half-a-dozen kids, including triplets, isn’t enough, Steve Tate receives the life-altering news that one of his triplets, Hayes, has been diagnosed with brain cancer. The once-star collegiate football player finds himself fighting for his son’s life. This memoir takes you through the various challenges of raising a family of six kids and balancing a career, all while his son battles to defeat the odds of survival. Both Steve and his high school sweetheart, Savanna, found hope and happiness through the example of their 20-month-old son Hayes.
It is fairly simple to describe the actions of people engaged in the human conflagration known as war, but what are those same people thinking and feeling as they become consumed in the Deadly Dance? Does every soldier see/feel the same, take home the same baggage, react alike when they see Old Glory flying over the court house or in a parade? The author takes you on the inside of the inside of an average American 19 year old as he crosses the threshold of reality in a button-down 1967 America and finds himself ejected into a toxic atmosphere where sanity is sometimes elusive and temporary. Hang on.

IBM® has announced certification of the Bridgeworks SANSlide Series 150 V7KSVC with its IBM System Storage® SAN Volume Controller, IBM Storwize® V7000, and Storwize V3700 virtualized storage systems. This combination of SANSlide and the Storwize V7000 system provides a powerful solution for clients who require efficient, IP-based replication over long distances. This certification gives IBM Storwize V7000 clients a fully supported, transparent technology that includes unmatched levels of performance and reliability. With the SANSlide protocol acceleration technology, it is now possible to replicate data across continents in a cost-efficient way, with little or no loss in performance. At the same time, bandwidth utilization can improve to over 95%, instead of the 1% - 5% normally achieved in long-distance IP networks. This IBM RedpaperTM publication shows the steps required to implement this solution efficiently and speedily.
This IBM Redbooks publication supersedes both: IBM TotalStorage: Introduction to SAN Routing, SG24-7119-00 Implementing the IBM TotalStorage Multiprotocol Routers, SG24-7246-00 The rapid spread and adoption of production storage area networks (SANs) has fuelled the need for multiprotocol routers. The routers provide improved scalability, security, and manageability by enabling devices in separate SAN fabrics to communicate without merging fabrics into a single, large SAN fabric. This capability enables clients to initially deploy separate SAN solutions at the departmental and data center levels. Then, clients can consolidate these separate solutions into large enterprise SAN solutions as the...
