MISSION, KS -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- (Family Features) Whether it's cooking for the family or company, everyone needs a few new ideas to turn ordinary meals into something special. Thai-Style Curry Beef and Pasta -- chockfull of beef and fresh vegetables in a creamy coconut-curry sauce -- shows how a little creativity can go a long way.
Start with pasta that offers more than just great taste. While Dreamfields pasta is made from durum wheat semolina, which ensures the taste and texture of traditional pasta, it also has the added nutrition of five grams of fiber per one cup cooked serving and fewer digestible carbohydrates. It's a delicious and healthy alternative to traditional pasta that's perfect for the whole family.
While the pasta cooks, prep the top sirloin steak. This boneless, tender cut of beef is economical and works great in this recipe. Slice it thin and toss with garlic for an extra flavor punch. The beef is quickly stir-fried, and then the broccoli, bell peppers and onions hit the skillet.
Kick up the creativity by adding a blend of sweet and spicy flavors -- ginger, chili pepper, coconut milk and red curry paste -- to give this dish an Asian flair. (Tip: red curry paste can be found in the Asian section of the supermarket, or visit an Asian market which is likely to have more brand choices.)
To serve, the colorful, fragrant stir-fry is tossed with perfectly cooked, al dente Dreamfields Spaghetti. In less than 30 minutes you have an Asian-inspired one dish meal that transforms dinnertime from basic to extraordinary.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

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.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
