Dean Withers, President and CEO, commented, "This is our third consecutive year of earnings improvement and, for the first time since 2005, we have achieved record earnings on a nominal basis. While we are pleased with these results, this level of earnings does not reflect our pre-recession performance relative to traditional measures of Return on Assets and Return on Equity." Withers continued, "We are cautiously optimistic that 2013 will result in the further, slow progress in reducing non-performing loans. As I stated in our last quarterly earnings announcement, we are seeing signs of modest improvement in both the local housing and commercial real estate markets. However, we still believe at this time that it is important to build our reserves, as there are still some borrowers that are struggling to recover from the lingering effects of the recession."

Withers stated, "Economic activity in our markets appears to be picking up, as we've seen an improvement in recent loan demand. This improved demand crosses multiple business lines, as we are seeing good growth in our Dealer Finance Division, strong interest in our new Fishersville Loan Production Office and improved loan demand in our established markets. On January 17, 2013, our Board of Directors declared a fourth quarter dividend of $0.17 per share. This is an increase of $.01 per share, compared to the prior year and prior quarter. Based on our most recent trade price of $16 per share, this dividend constitutes a 4.25% yield on an annualized basis. The dividend will be paid on February 8, 2013, to shareholders of record as of January 29, 2013." Highlights of the company's financial performance are included below.

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...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
