MineCore Collaborates With Industry Experts for White Papers

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 06/20/08 -- MineCore International, Inc. ("MineCore") (PINKSHEETS: MCIO) is collaborating with industry experts to develop a series of detailed white papers to research the industrial applications of natural sapphires in the semiconductor, solar cell, LED and other applicable technology industries. The white papers will be prepared by a consortium of renowned engineers and researchers with backgrounds from various technology giants such as Intel and IBM.

The purpose of the white papers is to further validate MineCore's new strategy of supplying its natural sapphires to the technology industry from its planned sapphire extraction operations in Madagascar from the waste sapphire that does not meet the quality of a sapphire gemstone.

MineCore plans to monetize this 'waste' surplus by supplying the semiconductor, solar cell and LED industries. The white papers will provide the company and shareholders with intricate details of the applications, market scope and impact on MineCore's growth prospects.

"We are pleased to be collaborating with specialists from the high tech industry to better understand the growing market for natural sapphires through a combination of consolidated research data and industry expert references," stated Jerry G. Mikolajczyk, MineCore Chairman and COO. "We believe that sapphire will be an important component in providing energy from solar panels while at the same time be a component of LEDs that use less electricity than our current incandescent lamps. What a wonderful combination, energy producer and energy saver!" exclaimed Mr. Mikolajczyk. "Our future state of the art sorting facility will separate the high quality sapphire gemstones from the low quality sapphire gemstones using high tech equipment. What might be viewed as waste or scrap in the gemstone industry will be prized sapphire in the high tech industry," he further added. "We expect literally tons of sapphire that will not meet our standards as a quality sapphire gemstone."

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addresse...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
