The Waves Platform is getting more attention recently. A new client has been released, a fiat gateway for the Turkish lira was implemented, the Waves NG protocol will be activated shortly and many more news appeared. Especially the implementation of the NG protocol, which speeds up a very important part of the WAVES ecosystem, the blockchain, raises a lot of attention and also questions.
So is the Waves Platform representing one of the fastest blockchains on the market or are there other blockchains which got a better performance, like BitShares for example?
So what is the “SharePoint Framework” and how do you get started with it? In this blog post I try write down an easy to follow guideline on how to engage with the SPFx and to understand the overall ecosystem, customizing and deployment tasks. I have been following the development of the SPFx for some months now but never really started using it. Now the time has come and I’m going to document my way to “full SPFx enlightenment” 😉
When we deployed a SharePoint 2013 non-HA Farm from the Azure Marketplace we noticed that a lot of additional storage space was added to our resource group. All three servers (Active Directory, SQL, SharePoint 2013) got at least one additional VHD blob with each 1000 GiB of SSD space that was attached to the specified server. Even when you shut down the virtual machines Microsoft Azure will still debit your subscription with the costs of those additional storage (which is not quite cheap).
