Xiaomi's Redmi brand launched the entry-level Redmi Go smartphone earlier this year in India for Rs. 4499. It came only in a single storage variant-1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. Now the company has teased a new storage variant of Redmi Go and the 16GB storage variant is expected to launch in India soon. Redmi India has posted a tweet on Twitter with the hashtag '#AapkiNayiDuniya' which was also used by the company for promoting the launch of Redmi Go 8GB storage variant earlier this year. The teaser says 'Zyada space=Zyada apps, Coming Soon' in Hindi which translates to 'More space=More apps'. This clearly indicates that a new storage variant of Redmi Go will be launched soon and is most likely to come with 16GB internal storage. As Redmi Go is an entry-level budget smartphone, it is unlikely for the company to increase the RAM and is expected to sport only 1GB RAM. Ho jaayein tayyar zyaada apps download karne ke liye.

To say that Cummins Inc. is a global leader in high performance engines is a bit of an understatement. The company’s engines are found in nearly every type of vehicle and equipment that rolls over pavement or dirt, from pickup trucks to 18-wheelers, from berry pickers to 360-ton mining haul trucks. You’ll also find Cummins engines on the water, in everything from recreational boats to commercial ships.

All in all, we’re talking about a company with an amazing track record for success. But don’t think for a second that Cummins is resting on its laurels. As a company executive notes in a new Dell Technologies video, Cummins is sharply focused on putting the latest technologies to work in its products.

For many years now, IT organizations have been virtualizing servers to gain greater value from their hardware investments. With tools from VMware, Microsoft and other vendors, IT managers could abstract the resources from a single host server and make them available to multiple users via virtual machines. This move to virtualized servers greatly increased asset utilization while making it easier to provision, deploy, manage and protect end-user systems.

Server virtualization was clearly a big leap forward in our approach to the hardware layer of the data center stack. Yet for all its benefits, this hardware virtualization didn’t help us solve the problem of how we simplify the provisioning, distribution and management of the software environments that run on top of the virtualized hardware layer.
