CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/13 -- The Board of Directors of Poseidon Concepts Corp. (TSX:PSN) (the "Company" or "Poseidon") recognizes that unpaid declared dividends are an outstanding debt owed to shareholders. The Board intends to pay the dividend, but has determined to defer the payment that was previously scheduled for January 15, 2013 to shareholders of record on December 31, 2012, in order to prioritize Poseidon's use of cash and future cash flow from operations towards strengthening Poseidon's financial position. Following the independent review of the Special Committee of the Board of Directors (see Press Release dated December 27, 2012), the Board intends to update shareholders on Poseidon's intentions regarding timing on payment of the January 15th dividend.

On January 10, 2013, Mr. Joe Kostelecky has resigned from his role as Executive Vice President, US Division. Mr. Angus Jenkins, Vice President, Operations has assumed Mr. Kostelecky's management responsibilities.

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...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
