價位從 USD$40/month 開始。相較於 Standard Droplet，CPU 的速度提升到 2.5 倍速 (平均)：
The current CPUs powering High CPU Droplets are the Intel Broadwell 2697Av4 with a clock speed of 2.6Ghz, and the Intel Skylake 8168 with a clock speed of 2.7Ghz. Customers in our early access period have seen up to four times the performance of Standard Droplet CPUs, and on average see about 2.5 times the performance.
目前早期先開放這些區，八月底會開 FRA1 與 LON1：
These Droplets are available through the Control Panel and the API starting today as capacity allows in SFO2, NYC1, NYC3, TOR1, BLR1, and AMS3. They will be available in FRA1 and LON1 by the end of August.
So, today we’re introducing global support for Alipay and WeChat Pay, connecting Stripe businesses in 25+ countries to the hundreds of millions of Chinese consumers that actively use these payment methods.
The unique property for an index causes MongoDB to reject duplicate values for the indexed field. Other than the unique constraint, unique indexes are functionally interchangeable with other MongoDB indexes.
但 Percona 的人就有說出「地雷」，算是不錯的補充教材 XDDD
Unique indexes work as in relational databases. They guarantee that the value doesn’t repeat and raise an error when we try to insert a duplicated value. Unique doesn’t work across shards.
FIPS 140-2 requires that one of its PRNGs be used (which they call DRBGs). In BoringCrypto, we use CTR-DRBG with AES-256 exclusively and RAND_bytes (the primary interface for the rest of the system to get random data) takes its output from there.
換句話說，程式競賽的成績反而是是個負面指標 (對於 Google 內的情況分析出來的，所以是基於 Google hiring process 的前提過濾過的)。
In this talk, Peter talked about how Google did machine learning and at one point he mentioned that at Google they also applied machine learning to hiring. He said that one thing that was surprising to him was that being a winner at programming contests was a negative factor for performing well on the job.
Peter added that programming contest winners are used to cranking solutions out fast and that you performed better at the job if you were more reflective and went slowly and made sure things were right.
What he's talking about is the fact that several extremely important parts of software engineering are not included in these contests, for example code reusability, maintainability, decomposition of the problem using the OO paradigm, etc. All of these make a good engineer, but are not necessarily needed in competitive programming contests.
