The new Jaguar F-TYPE represents a return to the company's heart: a two-seat, convertible sports car focused on delivering performance, agility and maximum driver engagement. The F-TYPE is a continuation of a sporting bloodline that stretches back more than 75 years and encompasses a heritage of beautiful, thrilling and desirable cars. The F-TYPE was revealed in Paris at the Musee Rodin in September 2012.

The all-new Land Rover Range Rover is the world's first SUV with a lightweight all-aluminum body.  The new Range Rover takes the capabilities of the brand's flagship to a new level, with even greater luxury and refinement, enhanced performance and handling on all terrains, and significant advances in sustainability. Designed and engineered at Land Rover's development centers in the UK, the new Range Rover will be produced in a state-of-the-art new low-energy manufacturing facility at Solihull, UK. Over $592 million has been invested in the Solihull plant to create the world's largest aluminum body shop. The all-new Land Rover Range Rover was first revealed in September at the Royal Ballet School in London. 

"Southern California is a leading market in the U.S. for both Jaguar and Land Rover, so Los Angeles is the ideal city to host the arrival of the Jaguar F-TYPE and the all-new Land Rover Range Rover, " said Andy Goss, President, Jaguar Land Rover North America. "Both of these vehicles encompass the luxury and sophistication that defines this trend-setting city."

Making its U.S. Auto Show Debut in Los Angeles is the all-new 2013 Land Rover Range Rover. The world's first SUV with a lightweight all-aluminum body, the new Range Rover takes the capabilities of the marque's flagship to a new level, with greater luxury and refinement. The U.S. specification vehicle with the naturally-aspirated 5-liter V8 will be approximately 700lbs lighter than the outgoing equivalent. This new aluminum platform delivers significant enhancements in performance and agility, along with an improvement in fuel economy and reduction in CO2 emissions. The new Range Rover goes on sale in December, 2012, starting at $83,5001.

Making its U.S. Auto Show Debut in Los Angeles is the 2014 Jaguar F-TYPE, displayed for the first time with the Black Pack (high gloss black body trim). An all-new two-seat soft-top convertible sports car built on a front-engine; lightweight aluminum architecture with rear-wheel drive, Jaguar has engineered the F-TYPE to be a true high-performance sports car. The Jaguar F-TYPE combines low vehicle weight (starting at 3,521 pounds), high power (340hp, 380hp and 495hp versions) and superb aerodynamics to achieve a pure sports car experience, yet with Jaguar elegance. F-TYPE goes on sale in early summer, 2013, starting at $69,0002.

The all-new Land Rover Range Rover and the Jaguar F-TYPE will be on display for consumers throughout the duration of the 2012 Los Angeles International Auto Show - Nov. 30 through Dec. 9.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
