"An exceptionally strong post-Christmas sales blitz enabled Hyundai to shatter our annual sales record which was set just last year," said Dave Zuchowski, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America.  "All year-end indicators appear to be signaling a robust economic environment for 2014. Home prices are back to their pre-recession levels, jobless rates are continuing to decline, and consumer confidence is on the upswing.  This is welcome news for the automotive sector and at Hyundai we're particularly excited to be ringing in the New Year."

Hyundai's all-new Genesis sedan will launch later this month at the North American International Auto Show and the completely redesigned Sonata will arrive later in the spring, taking the breadth and depth of the Hyundai line-up to unparalleled heights.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Further, serverless computing, cl...
