She recently launched her latest album, The Woman I Am, to great critical success and kicked off her 2014 tour schedule in January.    

"I drink Rockin' Refuel's lean line of drinks because they have the perfect amount of protein that I need to refuel after a workout with fewer calories, plus they taste great," said Pickler.  "Staying in shape while on the road touring isn't easy but it's essential when you're performing every night, so I make sure my tour bus is always stocked before we head out."

Pickler is the latest addition to Team Rockin' Refuel, joining football star Patrick Willis, professional basketball player Deandre Jordan, elite triathlete T.J. Tollakson and professional lacrosse player Brendan Mundorf. As a Team Rockin' Refuel member, she will be featured in a national campaign for Rockin' Refuel's lean product line, and will be partnering with fellow team members on upcoming social media activations.

"We're very excited to have Kellie Pickler join Team Rockin' Refuel," said Shamrock Farms Director of Brand Management, Blake Atkinson.  "Like our professional athletes, she understands that staying healthy and fit requires the right amount of daily protein to keep her muscles and body in shape.  And our lean line of protein beverages, with their fewer calories and carbs, are geared more towards active females so she's a perfect fit."

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers.
