An exuberant crowd of 117,429 packed the stands of the new 330-acre facility to watch Vodafone McLaren Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton claim his fourth Grand Prix of the season on the 3.4-mile, 20-turn Circuit. Circuit Chairman Bobby Epstein said, "The racing was spectacular. The crowd was enthusiastic and appreciative, and we showed the world that Formula 1 has a new U.S. home in Austin, Texas."
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 However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.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.
