Century Casinos Receives Development Approvals for the "Century Downs Racetrack and Casino" Project in Calgary, Alberta, Canada

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Jan. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Century Casinos, Inc. (NASDAQ Capital Market® and Vienna Stock Exchange: CNTY) announced today that the "Century Downs Racetrack and Casino" project received master site development plan approval and the development permit from Rocky View County.

With the development permit in place, construction at the site may start at any time going forward. Stripping and grading is planned to begin within the next few weeks, weather permitting.

The project has already received the racing license from Horse Racing Alberta and also the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission ("AGLC") has approved the project for development. Per regulation in Alberta, the final casino license will be issued shortly before opening upon final inspection by the AGLC.

Century Downs Racetrack and Casino is located less than one mile north of the city limits of Calgary and 4.5 miles from the Calgary International Airport. The location is ideally positioned exiting off the Queen Elizabeth II Highway, which is the main corridor between Calgary and Edmonton and one of the most heavily used highways in Western Canada, next to the CrossIron Mills shopping mall, a major regional attraction, and would capture both the north and the northwest Calgary markets, which do not currently have a casino.

Commenting on the news, the Company's Co CEOs Erwin Haitzmann and Peter Hoetzinger remarked: "We are excited about the go-ahead received from Rocky View County and are grateful for the tremendous support the project continues to receive from local and provincial communities and regulatory authorities." Referring to the fourth quarter results to-be-announced on March 31, they continued: "Regional gaming revenues across North America suffered at the end of 2013 in virtually every market, as did our operations. Together with higher corporate expenses associated with new project developments, results for the fourth quarter 2013 will be behind expectations."

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.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
