64 percent of moms love Valentine's Day, 35 percent are indifferent and only one percent would rather live without it, so listen up dads! This holiday is popular and demands attention.

For the best Valentine's Day ever, moms said take some notes from Ryan Gosling in The Notebook—his romance with Rachel McAdams was voted by 35% as the kind they'd most like to have on the special day. When recalling their most favorite Valentine's celebrations, 34% of moms said amazing romance took the cake, and the same number noted it happened during a night out without the kids. 19% indicated exciting new life experiences made for the most memorable day, but 5% say their best Valentine's was the one on which they conceived their kids!

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.

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...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media).
