LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 01/20/14 -- Life'd, an online publication that was only launched in 2011, has already attracted lots of attention for the quality and readability of its articles. The online magazine publishes articles on a range of topics, including food, health, finances and relationships. The publication's entertainment articles have won over thousands of readers and even gotten shares by notable business owners.
Life'd recently released a bucket list article, listing 225 things everyone should do before they die. This article was incredibly popular, with over 13,000 "likes" on Facebook, more than 1,000 "tweets" on Twitter and thousands of "pins" on Pinterest. The bucket list, compiled by talented regular contributor Michael Bock, includes simple activities that can be done in a few hours to incredible trips across the world. Just a few of the activities listed include whale watching, visiting Niagara Falls, eating a six course meal that one has prepared on their own, learning a new word every day and solving a Rubik's Cube. This list has been shared on StumbleUpon's official feed and also shared by authoritative brands, including the founder of Rubik's Cube.
Also making the bucket list was watching the best 100 movies, which is another entertaining list published on Life'd. The best 100 movies list was also incredibly popular with web-goers: it has received more than 8,000 "likes" on Facebook, more than 600 "tweets" on Twitter and more than 1,000 "pins" on Pinterest.
Unlike other lists published online, these entertainment lists by Life'd are detailed and well-written. Each film in the top 100 movies list has a summary, a memorable moment, an explanation of why people love it, and a best quote. The bucket list fully explains why the activity was worthy of the list in a concise and readable way.
The style of writing and the kind of content published by Life'd have resulted in this sky rocketing popularity. Each article is easily shared over various social media sites: Life'd links its articles to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, InShare and StumbleUpon.
While the entertainment articles remain immensely popular - the recent publication of the 200 greatest songs of all time is sure to be shared all over social media sites - articles on more serious issues are also read and shared by many.
Founded a year and a half ago in 2011, Life'd has become a popular online magazine that offers readers tips, secrets and advice on a range of topics. Just some of the topics the online publication covers include entertainment, food, health, finances, technology and more. All of the content is presented in an approachable and modern way. A team of strong writers continually produces articles of a high quality that can be shared across a range of social media platforms.

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"...

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

To capitalize on the ubiquitous disruption driving this transformation, companies must be able to innovate at an increasingly rapid pace. Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
