Pakistan Day Today

The Pakistan Day will be celebrated on Wednesday (today) across the country with traditional zeal to commemorate the passage of the Lahore Resolution, later called, the Pakistan Resolution, which eventually led to the creation of Pakistan.
The day will dawn with special prayers for progress and prosperity of the country and with 31 gun salutes in the federal capital as well as 21 gun salutes in provincial capitals.

The national flag will be hoisted on important public and private buildings throughout the country and all Pakistani missions abroad. This year too, the permanent feature of armed forces parade on Pakistan Day has been cancelled owing to security reasons as well as hectic engagement of troops in the tribal areas of the country to fight against militants.
Governmental, political, cultural, social and other organisations have chalked out various programmes to mark the day in a befitting manner. It will be a public holiday on Wednesday.
In the provincial capital, Punjab Governor Sardar Latif Khosa and other dignitaries will visit the mausoleum of Allama Muhammad Iqbal to pay homage to the great poet and philosopher who ideate of Pakistan. People will lay wreath on the grave and offer fateha.
Pakistan Television, Radio Pakistan and private channels will air special programmes to highlight the significance of Pakistan Day and various aspects of the life and work of founder of Pakistan Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and other leading personalities.

Try before you buy storage hardware

What you choose for your primary storage may be the most important purchasing decision you ever make. That storage will form the bedrock — or the shaky ground — upon which the rest of your server and application environment will be built. Primary storage is a major capital investment and frequently has a much longer life cycle than most infrastructure components, often remaining in production for five years or more.

Fortunately, almost all of the major storage players offer evaluation units you can test firsthand. At the very least, get one of each of the top options you’re considering. Get familiar with the ins and outs of the management interface, learn how easy (or difficult) the device is to configure, and if practical, do a head-to-head performance test. The evaluation process often brings up questions you would never have thought to ask potential storage suitors without seeing the product and making it work on your own. Many times, potential storage customers will visit an existing customer instead of doing a full evaluation, but this is only part of the story. Yes, you typically learn some valuable lessons, but you won’t find out how the storage will work in your environment.source
