This code provides two global functions, WriteVariantToStream and ReadVariantFromStream,
that enable you to read and write a variant to a stream. In addition, there are two other
global functions, ReadVariantFromBlob and WriteVariantToBlob, for reading and writing
a variant to a BLOB.
Here are some of the main advantages of these functions:
Uses any given IStream to stream the Variant into and out of.
Data is streamed in efficient binary form.
Stream is versioned for backwards compatibility.
Supports arbitrary size and arbitrary dimension safe-arrays.
Object streaming is supported if the object in variant supports
All code is in one header file (VariantStream.h) and only two routines are
exposed: WriteVariantToStream and ReadVariantFromStream.
Comes with supporting test code that tests the header file -- in case code
Does not use C++ exception handling. Test project has EH flag
Doesn't use the CRT.
Does not use any Direct-To-COM (VC++'s comdef.h, such as _variant_t, _bstr_t,

With the cloud enabling companies to spin up servers and stand up data stores more quickly, mobile apps can be created faster, reducing the time-to-value. But three major obstacles stand in the way for many organizations:
The backlog of app project requests confronting every enterprise regardless of their internal app development capabilities
Finding and employing better, faster tools to speed and simplify the process of developing those apps.
The emergence of …
When individual departments procure cloud service for their own use, they usually don't consider the hazardous organization-wide implications. Read this paper to learn best practices for setting up an internal, IT-based cloud brokerage function that service the entire organization. Find out how this approach enables you to retain top-down visibility and control of network security and manage the impact of cloud traffic on your WAN.
