VotRite Unveils New Interactive Voting Kiosks, Bringing Electoral Process to Public Locales

(PRWEB) September 12, 2014

The right to vote is routinely championed as one of the hallmarks of the American experience—but the ability to vote is another matter entirely. As ballot-casting technology has improved and expanded, the logistics involved with voting have grown both more accessible but also more complex. A company called VotRite seeks to make the act of voting as simple and as seamless as possible—and now, VotRite is proud to announce a new voting network, using interactive kiosks at shopping centers, retail stores, and other public locations.

“The purpose of the new voting machines is to make it easier for people to vote—as simple as that,” comments Jim Kapsis, Managing Partner of VotRite. “We’re trying to bring the voting process to more venues and locations, to ensure that anyone who would like to participate in the voting process can do so with a minimal amount of inconvenience.”

The new VotRite voting portal will initially offer the voter an opportunity to vote from a select network of public locations, spread across the United States—with the intention of expanding that network down the road. The voting portals are Wi-Fi enabled to ensure that each ballot cast is received, counted, and secured by cloud servers managed by Rackspace.

“The VotRite voting portal offers global voting options via any connectable device—including your tablet, your smartphone, or even your laptop computer,” Kapsis continues. “Now, we can add these interactive kiosks, as well—which is a boon to those who may not have connectable devices, or who may not wish to use them.”

VotRite has successfully facilitated elections on behalf of nationally known unions, colleges and universities, law enforcement complexes, condominium associations, and a wide variety of membership organizations.

Concludes Kapsis, “We are constantly seeking new ways to use technology to boost and enhance the electoral process—and are excited about the possibilities that these kiosks make available to us.”

Sightline Takes IT Operations Automation to the Next Level

Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) September 16, 2014

Sightline Systems Corp. is pleased to announce the release of Enterprise Data Manager (EDM) version 4.0. The latest release of Sightline Systems’ flagship Platform Enterprise Data Manager introduces new levels of automation, making management of internal, private cloud and public cloud servers and systems even easier. EDM 4.0 provides IT specialists with automated capacity planning, utilization and new security capabilities for both internal and cloud resources. With simple to use tools, the Sightline solution can be up in minutes, providing management with easy to understand reports.

The 4.0 release brings automated forecasting to the platform, allowing management to see advanced forecasting reports automatically, without complex modeling or configuration steps. Sightline leverages advanced predictive algorithms to provide easy to understand reports showing capacity related problems that may impact systems. This same prediction engine can highlight waste in cloud configuration, leading to significant cost savings due to resource over-allocation. “In today’s diverse environments it is becoming increasingly difficult for management and IT staff to effectively look after their environments. These new capabilities provide powerful reporting to ensure infrastructure is deployed in the most cost effective configuration,” says Brandon Witte, CEO for Sightline Systems.

EDM 4.0 also introduces Sightline ACE for automated compliance and security reporting. ACE allows management to scan systems immediately for over 6500 predefined security checks. This allows management confidence that internal, private cloud and public cloud assets are properly configured. Sightline ACE is delivered with popular security scans and server hardening best practices from NIST, DISA and others. Says Jim Bercik, Sightline Systems CTO, “These out of the box scans provide immediate value and can quickly show management that servers are consistently configured and deployed. Continuous scanning ensures that servers remain properly configured, which is key in the market today.” Being able to receive data quickly on potential threats from irregular activity throughout the infrastructure adds an extra layer of protection that was previously unavailable.

About Sightline

Headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, Sightline Systems Corporation provides state-of-the-art software and services to detect, diagnose, and prevent computer performance problems in even the most complex and diverse environments. Focusing on mission critical installations, Sightline customers run 24×7 “lights out” data processing operations, involving thousands or millions of transactions every day, where the integrity and reliability of systems is absolutely essential.

Lotpath Releases Developer API for Fresh Produce Inspection Software

Fresno, CA (PRWEB) September 16, 2014

Lotpath, a leading provider of software apps to the fresh produce industry today announced the availability of a Developer API for Lotpath Quality, the industry leading fresh produce inspection software app. Lotpath Quality has a built-in customizable dashboard for viewing inspection data, inspection photos, and graphs of numeric quality data. The dashboard lets users share inspection data and photos with trading partners via email.

For produce companies who have their own internal product quality dashboard or business intelligence software, the Lotpath Quality Developer API enables secure automatic retrieval of data from a Lotpath Quality account. Produce company software developers will appreciate the power and flexibility of the Lotpath Quality Developer API.

Kingston Fresh, a produce industry leader in product quality innovation started using the Lotpath Quality produce inspection software app in late 2013. Kingston Fresh selected Lotpath Quality because of its customizable inspection forms, its native Apple iPad app, and its integration with Famous Software, Kingston Fresh’s accounting and inventory software.

Ryan Cheney, the Director of IT at Kingston Fresh stated “Lotpath Quality and the Developer API filled our product quality tracking needs perfectly. We saved time and money by not developing the software app internally.” Mike Dodson, the Co-Founder and CEO of Lotpath added “We found a great business partner in Kingston Fresh.”

Kingston Fresh has a company intranet website that displays key product quality statistics so that Kingston Fresh personnel can continuously monitor product quality. Before using Lotpath Quality, Kingston Fresh filled out inspection worksheets by hand and entered the quality data into a database that fed the intranet website. Now inspectors use iPads and the Lotpath Inspector app to record product quality data and capture photos, eliminating the handwritten inspection worksheets and data entry steps. The Lotpath Quality Developer API enables Kingston Fresh software developers to automatically retrieve inspection data from Lotpath Quality and update the key product quality statistics on the company’s intranet website.

According to Dodson, the Lotpath Quality Developer API is one example of how Lotpath provides innovative and valuable software to produce companies. Dodson said “Lotpath works hard to stay at the forefront of software technology. We understand that in an interconnected world produce companies benefit from software vendors’ willingness to build integration points into their software apps. Lotpath lives in the world of software developer APIs and software app mashups.”

The Lotpath Inspector app is available in the Apple App Store:


Lotpath will be attending the PMA Fresh Summit trade show in Anaheim in October 2014. If you would like to schedule a meeting with Lotpath, send an email to info(at)lotpath(dot)com.

About Lotpath

Founded in 2007, Lotpath is a leading provider of software products and services for the fresh produce industry. Lotpath is headquartered in Fresno, California, the epicenter of the most productive food region in the world.

New Artesyn Embedded Technologies Server Blade Optimized for Network Function Virtualization and Deep Packet Inspection Applications

San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) September 09, 2014

At the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) today, Artesyn Embedded Technologies announced the ATCA-7480, a new packet and server processing AdvancedTCA® (ATCA®) blade featuring dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v3 processors, also announced today by Intel. The power of the new Intel Xeon processor family combined with the blade’s high speed data paths between processors, up to 512 GB DDR4 memory and I/O enables short response times for database access and accelerated pattern matching, and can also help optimize routing decisions in virtualized network environments. Artesyn’s optional hardware accelerators, directly connected to the processors, can accelerate encryption/decryption algorithms and can greatly enhance throughput of encrypted data in security applications. Cost sensitive applications will benefit from the sixteen memory sockets, which means a developer can use lower cost, lower capacity DIMMs for applications that don’t require the full 512 GB potential memory capacity.

Using the recently announced Intel® XL710 network interface controllers, the ATCA-7480 features an Artesyn QuadStar™ backplane interface consisting of four 40G Ethernet networks that connect all the blades in a system. System integrators have the choice of combining channels to create different redundant and non-redundant topologies, depending on the application bandwidth and availability requirements. By integrating multiple ATCA-7480 blades with up to four 40G hub blades into a single shelf, applications can benefit from aggregate bandwidth up to 1 Tb/s in an appropriate ATCA shelf, such as Artesyn’s Centellis™ 8000. Also, the high thermal and cooling capability of Artesyn’s Centellis 8000 system, up to 600 W per slot, enables users to specify higher performance processsors or more cores on the ATCA-7480 blade, meaning up to 28 cores per slot and up to 336 cores per ATCA shelf.

Todd Wynia, vice president for communication products, Artesyn Embedded Technologies, said: “Network functions virtualization (NFV) was envisaged to bring enterprise cloud concepts to the telecom world. However, one challenge is that enterprise class servers, so ubiquitous in the enterprise cloud, do not provide the compute density, I/O bandwidth, and carrier-grade ‘hardness’ required by many telecom applications. Addressing these requirements, Artesyn has worked closely with Intel to provide the carrier-class server platforms needed to build an NFV node in a true telecom environment.”

Renu Navale, director of ecoystem programs for the Communications & Storage Infrastruture Group at Intel, said: “Using the Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processor family with the features of the Intel® Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) enabled Artesyn to create an incredibly compute-dense platform with extremely high interconnect bandwidth, a key requirement of today’s communications applications.”

The ATCA-7480 blade includes enabling software for Artesyn’s SDN/NFV solutions, including support for Intel DPDK-accelerated OpenVSwitch, OpenFlow and OpenStack plug-ins for managing virtualization services on the computing platform. The blade will also support Wind River’s Carrier Grade Communications Server, a fully integrated and feature-complete software platform that enables an NFV infrastructure to achieve the ultra-reliability and high performance mandated for telecom networks.

Visitors to the Intel Developer Forum at Moscone West in San Francisco this week can see a live demonstration of the Artesyn ATCA-7480 blade with Artesyn’s SDN/NFV enabling software as part of the Intel® Network Builders Alliance demonstration.

Mobiag chose Lunacloud to host its public carsharing platform

(PRWEB UK) 12 September 2014

Mobiag has recently launched an innovative solution that aims to provide a global shift towards a more intelligent urban mobility. Responsible for managing a public roaming carsharing system, mobiag ensures the network operations and compensation mechanisms between operators, as well as integrity and the quality of service. The management of all carsharing operations, are performed by mobiag’s technological platform (MobiCS). This technology enables a seamless and transparent integration between operators and users, by applying the roaming concept to any carsharing models and networks, working also as a management tool, at the same level as some international best practices. MobiCS is a public platform based on Lunacloud’s infrastructure, since one of the company’s requirements was the total flexibility that should be given by the IaaS supplier. Lunacloud enables that same flexibility at a very low cost, compared to other IaaS cloud providers, which only provide sealed packages of computational resources.

To turn this idea into a business, the owners had to materialize it, so they relied on Lunacloud. Thus, in a first stage, Lunacloud has provided its infrastructure, so that Mobiag could implement its own platform. The reliability and security of the platform, were the main concerns of mobiag, because without it, the business could not be launched. That was the reason why mobiag made the decision to use a cloud service that could ensure such reliability and security, and at the same time was easily scalable and prepared for the business growth. The first interaction with Lunacloud’s Control Panel was excellent. “Very simple to use, even for someone who is not an experienced user like me. The information about the prices is clear and displayed in real time”, says João Felix, mobiag’s CEO.

Mobiag promotes smart solutions for urban mobility based on the integration of car sharing and public transport network for the benefit of its customers, partners and users, by improving the quality of life in the cities. Since mobiag would never compromise the fast and easy access to its platform, either by administrators or users, the company needed powerful computing resources.

Mobiag realized that by using Lunacloud, the company could run all its applications back and front-end, using multiple servers with reliable and elastic cloud computing resources, that met the demands of the users. The solution that mobiag found in order to achieve the intended results, was the implementation of four cloud servers that are constantly running. One runs the back-office system, another one supports the maps, the third one hosts databases and the last one supports the front end. For each of them, the features are different, depending on its needs, and the great asset is that mobiag can scale those resources, depending on the requirements of each of them.

Mobiag ensures the delivery of a reliable, fast and uninterrupted service to all its users, since the features chosen for each of the servers can support the current requirements and at the same time, can easily adapt to future requirements.

OpenStack Revenue Expected to Hit $3.3 Billion by 2018

New York (PRWEB) September 09, 2014

The OpenStack technology market, which is still in its nascent stage, will grow from $ 883 million in revenue in 2014 to $ 3.3 billion in 2018, as enterprises and vendors increasingly adopt the open-source platform for developing and deploying cloud services. That represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 40% for the six years ending in 2018.

This forecast is based on 451 Research’s new OpenStack Market Monitor & Forecast service, which presents data generated via a bottom-up analysis of more than 60 vendors that support OpenStack or base their products or services on the OpenStack framework. 451 Research’s OpenStack Market Monitor & Forecast focuses on the key public and private vendors that directly provide OpenStack offerings – including products, services and turnkey offerings around OpenStack deployment and management; various distributions of OpenStack; training and other OpenStack-related services; DevOps tools; and PaaS on OpenStack. The market-sizing analysis excludes hardware-centric revenue, as well as revenue from indirect third-party vendors, such as those in storage or software-defined networking.

While current OpenStack revenue overwhelmingly comes from the 30 vendors in the service-provider space, 451 Research analysts expect an uptick in revenue from all segments, especially from the companies in the OpenStack products, distributions and management space, which are primarily targeting enterprises.

Advanced Analytics on the Web: Frontline Systems Solver Apps Make Optimization Easy to Use in Office 365 Excel Online

Incline Village, Nevada (PRWEB) September 10, 2014

As spreadsheet users move between desktop Excel and web-based Excel Online, analytics software developer Frontline Systems has more than kept pace. Frontline, original developer of the Solver add-in that ships with desktop Excel, was one of the earliest vendors to release an advanced analytics “app” for Excel Online, the free Solver App, in July 2013. Now Frontline also offers the new subscription-based Premium Solver App, which enables users to solve large-scale mathematical optimization problems — solving for thousands or even millions of decisions — through a web browser, just as easily as they do in desktop Excel with Frontline’s Premium Solver Platform.

“We are democratizing analytics for both spreadsheet users and web users,” said Daniel Fylstra, Frontline’s President and CEO. “We’re making it easy to move from self-service business intelligence to self-service advanced analytics.”

Upward Compatible from Excel Solver, Solves Models in the Cloud

Like Frontline’s enhanced Solvers for desktop Excel, the Solver App and Premium Solver App for Excel Online are upward compatible from the Solver included in Excel. Users can simply open a workbook with a Solver model created in any previous version of Excel for Windows or Macintosh, and solve it immediately in the cloud. Through a web browser, users can easily create or modify their models on any browser-capable device, from tablets or even phones to laptops and desktops. On demand, powerful Solver engines running on Windows Azure based cloud servers, maintained by Frontline Systems, find the optimal solution.

Use with Microsoft Power BI Amplifies “Self-Service Business Intelligence”

Frontline’s advanced analytics tools build upon Microsoft’s recent investment in data access and “self-service business intelligence” that have made Excel much more than a spreadsheet. Just as Frontline’s advanced Solvers for desktop Excel work with Power BI’s desktop add-ins, Frontline’s Solver Apps extend the capabilities of Power BI’s web-based business intelligence and sharing tools.

With Microsoft’s Power Pivot — an Excel add-in based on SQL Server Analysis Services’ xVelocity database engine — Excel functions as a modern, in-memory, multidimensional database, easily capable of holding 100 million rows of data. The Power Query add-in, based on SQL Server Integration Services, provides an exceptionally powerful and easy to use ETL (Extract, Transform and Load) capability for this in-memory database, drawing data from a huge range of sources, from Hadoop clusters and Oracle databases to Windows Azure Data Marketplace. Frontline’s Analytic Solver add-ins work with both Pivot Tables and direct samples that draw data from this multidimensional database.

Using Office 365 with Microsoft’s Power BI extension, users can easily upload their Power Pivot-based Excel workbooks to the cloud, share their spreadsheet-based reports and their dashboard visualizations created with Power View, and even refresh their data from both cloud-based and on-premise databases. And with Solver App and Premium Solver App, users can immediately re-solve to find new optimal decisions based on their latest operating data.

Works with On-Premise SharePoint 2013 Servers

Like other Apps for Office, the Solver App and Premium Solver App work in desktop Excel 2013 and the Excel Web App included in SharePoint 2013, as well as Office 365 Excel Online. Companies who aren’t yet comfortable with cloud-based solutions can use Frontline’s Solver Server on an on-premise Windows server to get the same results. Solver Server can support both the Solver App and Premium Solver App, running in a SharePoint 2013 environment, and Frontline’s Premium Solver Pro and Premium Solver Platform add-ins, running in desktop Excel 2013, Excel 2010 or Excel 2007.

Frontline Systems Inc. (http://www.solver.com) is the leader in spreadsheet-based analytics software, helping managers gain insights and make better decisions for an uncertain future. Its products integrate forecasting and data mining for “predictive analytics,” Monte Carlo simulation and risk analysis, and conventional and stochastic optimization for “prescriptive analytics.” Frontline developed the solvers/optimizers in Microsoft Excel, Lotus 1-2-3 and Quattro Pro, distributed to more than 1 billion spreadsheet users. Founded in 1987, Frontline is based in Incline Village, Nevada (775-831-0300).

GAWMiners Announces World’s Most Easy-to-Use, Low-Cost Digital Cloud Bitcoin Miner for $9.95

Bloomfield, CT (PRWEB) September 09, 2014

The world-leading cryptocurrency hardware provider, GAW Miners, announced The Hashlet Genesis as the world’s most easy-to-use bitcoin miner priced aggressively at $ 9.95.

The release of the world’s most accessible bitcoin miner is another headline GAWMiners has made this summer, adding to its recent purchases of BTC.com for $ 1M and acquiring the wildly popular cloud hosting platform ZenMiner for $ 8M. Earlier in the month, GAW Miners released the Hashlet Prime and Hashlet Solo as the world’s first Digital Cloud Miners, which the company is proud to say is leading more customers to positive ROIs than any other bitcoin miner ever sold.

Friday night, the company announced the highly anticipated new SHA-256 version of it’s wildly successful Hashlet line, The Hashlet Genesis. Promising to help make Bitcoin accessible to a mainstream audience by making bitcoin mining as easy to use as email, the Hashlet Genesis release caused an avalanche of customers worldwide to flood GAW’s store hoping to be first in line to order the revolutionary new cryptocurrency miner.

The Hashlet Genesis’ incredible popularity is due to both its $ 9.95 starting price – lower than any other bitcoin miner in the world – and the fact that it’s widely considered the most powerful SHA-256 miner ever sold, since it grows more efficient over time and never becomes obsolete. Just as important it its success, however, is that Hashlet Genesis is widely considered the most user-friendly product in the industry, allowing people without technical know-how to create Bitcoins safely and reliably from a trustworthy source. Previous cryptocurrency miners have never been known for their ease of use, always requiring some degree of technical knowledge in order to operate.

“Hashlets are different. If you can open an email you can operate a Hashlet.” says CEO Josh Garza. “Hashlet is grandma-approved!”

With all initial varieties of the Hashlet released, GAW Miners has taken a major step forward in its preparations the industry to be ready for Project Prime, the company’s code name for its revolutionary new bitcoin platform due to launch later this year. Promising to make cryptocurrency far more accessible to the general public and far more attractive for merchants and customers to accept, Project Prime is expected to bring Bitcoin mainstream with the public.

“Cryptocurrency is changing the world. This time will go down as a period in history not unlike the Industrial Revolution” said CEO Josh Garza. “Make no mistake, bitcoin is here to stay and it’s going mainstream.”

Google Incorporates RHEL in Its Cloud Computing Platform

With the move, the users of the Google cloud computing services would be able to move their Red Hat subscriptions to the Google Compute Engine.

This was announced on Monday, April 7, 2014 by Red Hat and Google Corporation that they have joined hands together to kick off a Red Hat Enterprise Linux RHEL based cloud computing services on the Google Compute Engine to offer high quality, industry grade, and super secure cloud computing services to the customers. This announcement further elaborated the collaboration that Google has joined the Red Hat Company’s program called ‘Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider Program’.

The statement was made public through an official press release published on the official website of Red Hat Corporation. It was further stated in the press release that now the customers of Red Hat would be able to transfer their subscriptions to the cloud computing services offered by the Google Corporation on its Compute Engine platform. The movement of on-premise subscription of Linux can be done via Red Hat Cloud Access capability, which allows the customers to enjoy the choice and flexibility offered by the open hybrid cloud.

While talking about the Red Hat Cloud Access, the statement further elaborated that this offers the feature of “Bring Your Own Subscription” to the cloud computing platforms that are certified under the Red Hat’s “Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider Program” – the Google has become one of them. This program was started back in November 2013 by the Red Hat Corporation.

“Testing and certification requirements to demonstrate that they can deliver a safe, scalable, supported and consistent environment for enterprise cloud deployments,” says the statement. The press release further maintained that, “ This flexibility facilitates computing movement across environments, including swapping resources in and out of the cloud – via Red Hat Cloud Access – as business requirements dictate, supporting an agile business environment. In addition, by standardizing on a single operating environment for all physical, virtual, and cloud deployments, organizations can realize significant operational benefits.”

Many experts believe that this partnership will boost the prospect of Google cloud computing services in positioning as the efficient, reliable and affordable services against the cloud computing giant Amazon Web Services. Both the companies are already locked in a fierce fighting of price cuts and other incentives for the customers to increase their customer bases.
