NEW YORK, Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Original SoupMan - the inspiration for the famous Seinfeld "No Soup for You!" episode and #1 Zagat-rated, best-tasting soup in the world— is finally giving Jason Alexander his soup!
To celebrate the nationwide launch of The Original SoupMan in the soup aisle of supermarkets nationwide, Mr. Alexander, who played the role of George Costanza on Seinfeld from 1990 to 1998, will make an in-store appearance at Pavilions in Burbank, California on Saturday, December 15th. An Emmy and Golden Globe nominated and Tony Award winning actor, Mr. Alexander is an equity partner in SoupMan, Inc., parent company of The Original SoupMan. During his in-store appearance, Mr. Alexander will be filming promotional videos for The Original SoupMan and doing "meet and greets" with Pavilions' customers. A recent poll by "60 Minutes" and Vanity Fair named Seinfeld the favorite sitcom of all time, topping The Honeymooners and Friends.
Mr. Alexander commented: "Many people don't know our famous 'soup kitchen' episode on Seinfeld was inspired by an actual soup restaurant off 8th Avenue in New York. The soup recipes created by Al Yeganeh are considered by me and thousands of New Yorkers as some of the best soups in the world. And the Zagat's Food Guide agrees. Now that The Original SoupMan recipes are becoming available in supermarket soup aisles, the whole country will get to experience what we already know so well. I'm hoping everyone will come to enjoy the soup so many have been lining up for years to get. And don't worry, nothing can go wrong. Cause this time - well, it's soup for everybody."

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.
