Tales of Transformations: Brooks Serves Up Science

first_imgMeet Brooks Weisblat, VP of Technology at Frost Science, who – as he says – is responsible “for everything that has a button on it.” That’s very modest. In fact, the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science is a 250,000 square foot state-of-the-art marvel. Every part of it, from the exhibits to the wildlife tanks to the gift shop, uses the latest technology to keep it running smoothly and efficiently. Building these interconnected systems was a massive undertaking for Brooks and a small team of developers.Brooks started his career as a web developer at a small science museum in Miami… and two decades later, he was planning the technological backbone for a $330 million new building. Have a look at how Dell Technologies centralized infrastructure helped Brooks make it happen. Here is his Tale of Transformation:A modern infrastructure enables Brooks and his team to spend their time being creative and helping the museum’s staff think big.If you want to learn more about how Brooks melded creativity and technology to help create a state-of-the-art modern marvel, check out this podcast.Are you ready to modernize your infrastructure?

GM, Navistar team up to build hydrogen powered heavy trucks

first_imgDETROIT (AP) — In about three years, Navistar plans to start selling low-emission hydrogen-powered heavy trucks under a partnership with General Motors and a small distribution company called OneH2. The venture announced Wednesday is an early commercial deployment of the technology in U.S. long-haul trucking. Navistar hopes it will start widespread use of hydrogen-electric trucks, which will reduce greenhouse gas emissions that come from burning diesel fuel. GM will provide fuel cells to Navistar. OneH2 will set up fueling stations either by trucking hydrogen to terminals or through small hydrogen generation units. Trucking company J.B Hunt will use test trucks in a pilot program starting toward the end of next year.last_img read more
