Alkame Water Begins Five State Distribution Deal With URM

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 03/04/14 -- Alkame Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: ALKM) (OTCQB: ALKM), a health and technology holding company with a focus on patentable, innovative, and eco-friendly consumer products, is pleased to announce that the Company has entered into a wholesale product distribution relationship with URM Stores, Inc. ("URM"), a Washington State based retailer-owned grocery cooperative business.

The Company expects that URM (www.urmfoodservice.com) will soon be delivering Alkame Water in 24/ half liter and 12/ one liter bottle formats within their five state area, which includes Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. URM currently distributes a wide variety of grocery products to retail, convenience store, and food service locations within these five states.

Founded in 1921, URM Stores, Inc. (formerly United Retail Merchants), began when five retailers banded together to form the "cooperative" under the laws of the State of Washington. Over the years, sales volume has grown to approximately $775 million, employment to over 2,700 employees at URM and its subsidiaries, and assets to over $100 million. URM is consistently ranked amongst the top 10 private employers in Washington State.

Robert Eakle, CEO of Alkame Holdings, Inc., commented, "This is a very significant multi-state distribution partnership that will immediately allow all the URM cooperative members to potentially purchase Alkame Water for their retail grocery locations."

Rick Bierwiler, Alkame's VP of Sales, stated, "In fact, initial response has been very positive and several URM retailers have already agreed to purchase Alkame Water for their stores. We anticipate similar success when we introduce Alkame Water to the remaining URM retailers over the next few weeks."

Several multi-state URM chains and retailers have agreed to carry Alkame Water in both half liter and one liter configurations, including Yoke's Fresh Market (Washington and Idaho - www.yokesfreshmarkets.com), Super 1 Foods (Montana, Idaho, and Washington - www.super1foods.net), and Pilgrims Markets (Idaho - www.pilgrimsmarket.com).

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.
