DUBLIN, Mar. 04, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/s2kw3n/air_filters) has announced the addition of the "Concise Analysis of the International Air Filters Market In Automotive - Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.
Air filters are the key components for automobiles, and are evolving alongside with developments in the automotive industry. Air filters are classified into two categories-engine/intake air filter and cabin air filter. The intake air filter is used to prohibit the entry of foreign particles such as road dust, debris, etc. into the engine. This helps in the enhanced functionality of engines. It minimizes the emissions from vehicles and prevents the engine and its components from damages caused by foreign particles. Cabin air filters are the new types of air filters, which are specifically designed for the vehicle's cabin air filtration. The market for automotive air filter is influenced by production trends in the automotive industry, emission norms, health safety regulations, buyer's preferences, and lifestyle, whereas factors such as vehicle parc, average miles driven, and the types of filters used influence the aftermarket demand for air filters.
The function of the intake air filter is to filter the air before it enters the combustion chambers of the engine. Along with this, the filter also has to sustain a continuity in the airflow that reaches the engine. The external particles that are filtered by the air filter can be hazardous for the engine and its components such as piston, piston rings, engine cylinder, etc if they are not filtered. An unclean or damaged intake filter can hinder the engine performance and reduce fuel efficiency of the vehicle. Hence, timely cleaning or replacement of an intake air filter is important so as to increase the engine life and decrease the service intervals for vehicles.
At present, a majority of the vehicles is installed with air-conditioning systems, which in turn require cabin air filter. The trend for air conditioning is especially observed in the passenger car segment so as to provide better comfort to occupants. Additionally, to deal with factors such as increased air pollution, harmful exhaust gases, and other contaminants, cabin air filters play an important role by reducing the health risk involved with these gases or polluted air. These impurities, if passed through HVAC vents, can cause respiratory or allergic problems to occupants. The basic cabin air filter can filter harmful particles from the air, whereas advanced cabin air filter is capable of removing gases and odor associated with polluted air.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
