To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on
a GAAP basis, Advent uses non-GAAP measures of continuing operations'
operating income, net income and net income per share, which are adjusted
to exclude certain costs, expenses, gains and losses we believe appropriate
to enhance an overall understanding of our past financial performance and
also our prospects for the future. These adjustments to our current period
GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and
investors a more complete understanding of Advent's underlying operational
results and trends and our marketplace performance. In addition, these
adjusted non-GAAP results are among the information management uses as a
basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation
of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation
or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.

RECONCILIATION OF SELECTED CONTINUING OPERATIONS' GAAP MEASURES TO NON-GAAP

                                (Unaudited)

To supplement our condensed consolidated financial statements presented on
a GAAP basis, Advent uses non-GAAP measures of continuing operations'
operating income, net income and net income per share, which are adjusted
to exclude certain costs, expenses, gains and losses we believe appropriate
to enhance an overall understanding of our past financial performance and
also our prospects for the future. These adjustments to our current period
GAAP results are made with the intent of providing both management and
investors a more complete understanding of Advent's underlying operational
results and trends and our marketplace performance. In addition, these
adjusted non-GAAP results are among the information management uses as a
basis for our planning and forecasting of future periods. The presentation
of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation
or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...
Security, data privacy, reliability, and regulatory compliance are critical factors when evaluating whether to move business applications from in-house, client-hosted environments to a cloud platform. Quality assurance plays a vital role in ensuring that the appropriate level of risk assessment, verification, and validation takes place to ensure business continuity during the migration to a new cloud platform.
"Tintri was started in 2008 with the express purpose of building a storage appliance that is ideal for virtualized environments.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.
