JERSEY, CHANNEL ISLANDS -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 --
27 November 2012 LONGREACH OIL AND GAS LIMITED Seismic Acquisition Ahead of 1st Well in H1 2013 LONGREACH OIL AND GAS LIMITED (TSX-V: LOI) ("Longreach"), an independent oil and gas company holding exploration and near term development licences in Morocco, is pleased to announce the start of its 500 km 2D seismic programme ahead of plans to drill its first well on the Sidi Moktar permit onshore Morocco in H1 next year. The survey will cover the slated drill targets of Koba and Kamar, to further de-risk and optimise the drilling location for these prospects, as well as to help convert a number of other identified leads into drillable prospects. Prospectiuni SA ("Prospectiuni"), which has extensive seismic acquisition experience in Morocco, has been contracted to deploy its advanced technology Vibroseis cable-less crew to acquire the data. This survey is part of the fulfilment of licence obligations. The 2D seismic survey is expected to take 2 months, with processing being undertaken in parallel with data acquisition. This approach will provide new data in a timely manner for Longreach to confirm its well locations for its 2013 well programme. In preparation for its 2013 drill campaign, Longreach is also launching international tenders for a rig to drill two wells and to procure the associated long-lead items. Commenting, Bryan Benitz, Chairman and CEO of Longreach, said: "This is one of the final stepping stones to drilling our first well. The Company expects to be fully funded for its current multi-well programme for next year, where the aim is to target a relatively low risk prospect, which if successful, will allow to get into early production to generate near-term cash flow. This will provide additional foundations for the Company's medium term plan for Morocco, where we plan to drill and bring on stream a combination of high impact and near-term producing assets." Longreach had interpreted over 4,500km of existing 2D seismic data on Sidi Moktar and has now completed the reprocessing of 1,750km with Key Seismic Solutions Ltd ("Key Seismic") in Calgary. Key Seismic has provided cutting-edge in-house seismic processing technologies which, under Longreach's careful guidance, have yielded a significantly enhanced image of the prospective Triassic section in the subsurface. This enhanced image was achieved through the judicious use of Key Seismic's proprietary multiple attenuation and pre-stack time migration software. The removal of multiple reflections and the imaging of the dipping Triassic rocks, correlated into the nearby gas-producing Meskala field, has transformed the prospectivity of the Triassic section of some large structures. Longreach has also completed a comprehensive petrophysical analysis of the neighbouring wells to better understand the reservoir and seal potential of the entire Triassic stratigraphic section. This study has confirmed the required reservoir and seal properties of the prospective Triassic reservoir units in this proven hydrocarbon basin. -ENDS- For Further Information: Longreach Bryan Benitz Chairman & CEO +44 20 3137 7756 Pelham Bell Pottinger Mark Antelme / Philip Dennis / Rollo Crichton-Stuart +44 207 861 3232 Additional information on Longreach Oil and Gas Limited can be found at www.longreachoilandgas.com Additional information on Longreach Oil and Gas Limited can also be found at www.sedar.com Special Note Regarding Forwarding Looking Statements: This press release contains forward-looking statements.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Back in February of 2017, Andrew Clay Schafer of Pivotal tweeted the following: “seriously tho, the whole software industry is stuck on deployment when we desperately need architecture and telemetry.” Intrigue in a 140 characters. For me, I hear Andrew saying, “we’re jumping to step 5 before we’ve successfully completed steps 1-4.”

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
