Two impressive seven-passenger crossovers battle for most valuable performance

2014 Mazda CX-9, 2014 Acura MDX go head-to-head at Ingram Park Mazda

SAN ANTONIO, Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The crossover segment continues to grow into one of the most competitive classes in the automotive industry. Automakers are striving to create spacious, functional vehicles that also offer remarkable fuel efficiency and an exciting performance. All of this also needs to occur at a price point that suits a variety of drivers' needs. Ingram Park Mazda is stacking up the 2014 Mazda CX-9 vs 2014 Acura MDX to allow drivers to determine which vehicle offers the best overall value.

The 2014 Acura MDX is initially striking for its luxurious appearance and sophisticated styling. Once drivers spend time behind the wheel of the crossover, they find that the vehicle's 3.5-liter V-6 engine can produce 290 horsepower while earning an Environmental Protection Agency-estimated 28 mpg highway. Sleek design elements show off the vehicle's dedication to quality and style, which makes the 2014 Acura MDX a strong competitor for the Mazda CX-9.

While the 2014 Mazda CX-9 may come in under the Acura MDX in the areas of power and efficiency, the vehicle has a lot more to bring to the table. When equipped with the 3.7-liter V-6 engine, the CX-9 still offers a 273-horsepower performance, which isn't too far behind the MDX. But what makes the Mazda the kind of crossover drivers crave, is its unmatched versatility. Offering up to 139.4 cubic feet of passenger volume or 100.7 cu. ft. of cargo space, the CX-9 gives drivers ample room to customize the interior.

Both crossovers are equipped with helpful and entertaining technology, which makes the choice even more difficult. Both offer all-wheel drive capabilities, hands-free communication and navigation systems. However, the Mazda CX-9 has brands like Bose and TomTom on its side. At a price that's nearly half of the Acura MDX's, it isn't hard to see which vehicle offers the better value. 

Drivers can make the decision for themselves at Ingram Park Mazda by scheduling a test drive for the 2014 Mazda CX-9. The dealership is available online and at 855-616-6818 to answer any questions about the vehicle.

We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
