Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the release of its imageCLASS MF6180dw and MF6160dw black and white multifunction printers (MFPs), successors to the previous imageCLASS MF5950dw and MF5960dn MFP models. These new devices provide a variety of document management options able to fit the needs and price point of medium sized offices. Features incorporated in the new models are Secure Print, Google Cloud Print™1, LDAP address book search, PCL and wireless2 capabilities.
“With the newest additions to our imageCLASS MFP line, we are continuing to meet increasing customer demands for greater functionality and performance by providing end-users the tools they need to meet their individual document needs,” said Sam Yoshida, vice president and general manager, Marketing, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A. “These imageCLASS MFP models offer speed and superb functionality, a key combination of features needed for any modern office.”
The imageCLASS MF6100 MFP Series is built on the foundation of legendary Canon imaging technology, and these printers are feature-rich monochrome imageCLASS MFP models that help meet the needs of small and medium sized offices. As upgrades from their predecessors, the imageCLASS MF6160dw adds PCL language support to enable printing from a wide variety of applications, while the MF6180dw adds wireless connectivity. Both models add Google Cloud Print, which enables users who have a Google Account to print from Gmail™ and Google Doc™ from a mobile device and from the Google Chrome™ browser for Mac®, Windows®, Linux® and Chrome™ devices.
Additional features include all mode two-sided printing which can help reduce paper usage and Simple Solution Keys which allow users to easily access the scan and eco-copy (2 on 1, 4 on 1 copy modes) functions. Beyond the basic features of the MF6100 Series, the MF6180dw printer supports Adobe® PostScript 3TM Emulation which can enhance quality of text, graphics, and images for users.
The new devices are well-equipped to help a variety of offices with productivity, document control and device management. With print speeds of up to 35 pages per minute3, a front loading 250-sheet cassette and Single Cartridge System that combines all the critical components such as toner, drum and waste unit into one consumable, users will have more time to focus on their daily tasks. Additionally, “Send” technology empowers users to send scanned documents and forward received faxes to a recipient through email or a file server which can help to improve office workflows. Both machines are equipped with Secure Print and Department ID Management, helping to assure that sensitive documents will end up in the right hands and giving companies the ability to control device usage. Finally, a high capacity cartridge is available as a replacement consumable so users can also enjoy a lower cost per page as compared to the standard cartridge.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

The essence of cloud computing is that all consumable IT resources are delivered as services. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Yung Chou, Technology Evangelist at Microsoft, demonstrated the concepts and implementations of two important cloud computing deliveries: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). He discussed from business and technical viewpoints what exactly they are, why we care, how they are different and in what ways, and the strategies for IT to transi...

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...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
