CRS Electronics' Lumenova(TM) Brand One of First to Achieve 2014 Energy Star Certification

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 02/19/14 -- CRS Electronics Inc. ("CRS" or the "Company"), (TSX VENTURE: LED), a developer and manufacturer of LED lighting products, today announced while the industry grapples with conforming to new and more stringent energy star standards which take effect in September 2014, Lumenova™ has already achieved Energy Star certification throughout most of their portfolio. All Par's, BR's and soon MR16's will be certified to the new standards which increase efficacies, on/off criteria, establish dimming standards and start-up time requirements.

"We are very pleased to be ahead of the industry in this regard," said Travis Jones, President & CEO. "It's also a testament to the superior design of our products, and Scott Riesebosch our Chief Technology Officer is the author of our technological success." Jones also cited the good work performed by CRS employees in China. "Our Zhuhai office in China has done a terrific job coordinating with our lab partners there- Leo Lee, our Manager of Vendor Relations in particular."

"Energy Star certification drives many of the utility rebates available. I applaud them for elevating criteria as it further separates low cost and low quality LED providers from thoughtfully designed products from companies like Lumenova™. There is room in the marketplace for all types of LED companies, but raising the bar helps customers differentiate between companies. The marketplace is beginning to understand not all LED manufacturers are alike, and new standards for Energy Star certification will further separate the wheat from the chaff," said Travis Jones.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
