Coming in in second place were the Arctic Monkeys who pulled off a historic double after winning British Group of The Year and British Album of the Year for their latest album, entitled AM. Following close behind was Ella Eyre, who broke free from Rudimental's no.8 spot and saw a 356% increase in searches, putting her in at no.3 on the list.

When it came to artists who performed on the night, Arctic Monkeys came out on top after kicking off the show with fire emblazoned letters, followed by Ellie Goulding who performed her no.1 hit 'Burn'. In last place was Katy Perry, with her performance of 'Dark Horse' in a neon Egyptian number, only beaten by a slim distance by Beyoncé who dazzled in a shimmering green dress for her first ever live performance of 'XO'.

Brigitte Ricou-Bellan, General Manager International, StubHub, commented "The BRITS are a great barometer for UK fans' musical taste and a showcase for some of the best up and coming acts in the industry as well as recognising more established artists such as David Bowie and One Direction. And, as we can see from the huge spike in searches for Prince following presenting an award and the announcement of his two Manchester gigs - a well-timed on-stage appearance can help generate additional publicity and demand too!"

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security.

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...
