The Weekender, which features some of the world's fastest-rising and most cutting-edge international artists, takes place Saturday and Sunday, February 15th and 16th at Shin Kiba Studio Coast in Tokyo. Major acts are Mogwai, The National, Warpaint, Chvrches, Youth Lagoon, Daughter, King Krule, Ásgeir, Errors, Buke and Gase.

In conjunction with The Weekender, Ynos will present Chvrches with special guest The Errors at the Liquid Room in Ebisu on Wednesday, February 12th and at Bigcat in Osaka on Thursday, February 13th.

Ynos was started by Asia music industry luminary Andrew "Plug" Lazonby and is a sister company of Hostess Entertainment, the largest independent international music company in Japan. The last Weekender event, an in-the-city mini festival in Ebisu, attracted more than 4,000 fans.

Lazonby said, "The Weekender has become the perfect forum for artists of substance to present and connect their music to a new, re-energized and growing fan base in Japan and across Asia.  Everyone at Ynos and Hostess is thrilled with the latest edition of the series—it's going to be fabulous."

The Hostess Club Weekender takes place in Tokyo three times per year and typically features around ten international artists. Select artists then go on the road as part of the Hostess Club tour, visiting Hong Kong, Taipei, Seoul, Manila and, for this edition of the event, ending with an all-day Hostess Club Weekender in Singapore at Fort Canning Park on Saturday, February 22nd. A new interactive app now supports the Weekender events providing essential information to fans such as the bands' schedules, artist profiles, discographies, videos, maps, online ticketing, and merchandising.

Ynos was conceived and launched by Lazonby and digital media venture studio Designed for Revolution (DFR) in 2011.

Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
"We are an all-flash array storage provider but our focus has been on VM-aware storage specifically for virtualized applications," stated Dhiraj Sehgal of Tintri in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
