State Systems Installs Green Ballast Smart Lighting Solution in Corporate Headquarters and Warehouse Facility

MEMPHIS, Tenn., Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Ballast Inc., (OTC BB: GBLL) announced today that State Systems Inc., a privately owned total protection company based in Memphis, Tenn., has installed Green Ballast's patented daylight harvesting fluorescent light ballasts in their corporate headquarters and warehouse facility.

"We were looking to upgrade the lighting in both our office and warehouse facilities," said Bob McBride, President of State Systems Inc. "With Green Ballast, we are able to perform a lighting upgrade that includes daylight harvesting for similar costs to a standard upgrade, saving us approximately 62% a year in lighting energy costs."

GBLL's ballast is a direct replacement for the existing "standard ballast" and adjusts power consumption for each lighting fixture.  It is a "plug and play" solution and has controls within each ballast, providing simple and efficient installation and ongoing maintenance. 

"The substantial control rebates being provided by utility providers combined with the efficient and effective installation, performance and maintenance of our ballasts, presents a compelling case for enterprises of any size to greatly upgrade the lighting in their facilities, while enjoying a considerable decrease in electric consumption for years to come," said J. Kevin Adams, CEO of Green Ballast, Inc."

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. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
