America's most preferred Malbec1, Alamos is known for its food pairing versatility and will be seen in tonight's episode, appropriately titled "Daring Parings." Contestants will be challenged to create a dish to pair with the bold Malbec – a wine with distinctive dark fruit characteristics and a unique balance of acidity and oak nuances that is grown at the base of Argentina's Andes Mountains.

"The higher elevation of our vineyards provides the ideal climate and sun exposure to yield grapes with rich, layered aromas and flavors," said Alamos Winemaker Felipe Stahlschmidt. "Our unique growing conditions produce Malbec grapes with incredible flavor that pair well with a variety of foods and enhance any meal. I can't wait to see what pairings are in store for this episode."

"We're thrilled to partner with Alamos for this episode of The Taste," said Chris Coelen, "The Taste" Executive Producer and founder of Kinetic Content.  "The flavorful and food-friendly quality of Alamos Malbec really challenges the contestants to get creative."

The series, which premiered on January 22, requires the panel of mentors to judge the competitors' dishes blind with no knowledge of whose creation they're sampling, what they're eating, how it was prepared or who they could be sending home each week.

In addition to the award-winning Malbec, the Alamos portfolio of high-quality Argentine wines also includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Blend, Chardonnay, the bright, fruity white wine Torrontes, and Malbec Seleccion.

About Alamos Wines: Alamos crafts quality wines from Argentina, offering the best of Mendoza's high altitude vineyards at an incredible value ($13 SRP). Alamos grapes are grown at the foothills of the Andes Mountains at elevations of 3,000 to 5,000 feet, where intense sunlight, cool evening temperatures and mineral-rich irrigation from mountain snowmelt translate to rich wines with intense flavor characteristics. Winemaker Felipe Stahlschmidt combines modern methods with more than a century of historic winemaking techniques to craft flavorful Argentine wines of extraordinary quality and value.

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. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
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...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
