SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AhhhMedia, LLC is pleased to announce the launch of Flushd, the world's best bathroom app. Currently available for the iPhone and iPad, it's an innovative and fresh approach to the potty. Puns intended.

Looking for a bathroom with a changing table? Trying to avoid bathrooms with attendants? Have an emergency and simply need to find the closest bathroom...immediately? Flushd shows you the way in a fun and easy manner.

"Our goal is to take a conversation that is happening on the fringes and bring it mainstream," says James Edwards, CEO of AhhhMedia, LLC – the App's creator. "We want to embrace one of the world's greatest inventions and celebrate an experience that we take for granted everyday."

Flushd allows the user to easily discover restrooms around them and even provides an emergency locator for those urgent moments that maps the user immediately to the closest place of relief. Bathrooms can be selected based upon quality, distance or feature (i.e. changing table). Once you have settled in-stall, the app becomes your personal curated bathroom reader. The app's Read function lets you engage your social feeds (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) or other content including ESPN, BBC World News and other sources from a broad variety of content verticals and areas of interest. Flushd also features content from Flushd's physician co-founders, Jessica Edwards, a board certified gynecologist, and Marc Richman, a board certified urologist, who will be blogging on men and women's bathroom related health issues.

Upon completing the relief experience, the user can review and rate the bathrooms and share tips with other likeminded Flushd users. The app then shows the user their personal potty statistics via the app's Analyzer function. You can analyze your bathroom habits and keep track of your #1's or #2's, the time of day you most often visit the bathroom and which of the restrooms you frequent or favor.

Users can also list private bathrooms and share those publicly if they desire to help expand access to restrooms and create a community of shared resources.

"Bathroom behaviors are usually a pretty solid indicator of your overall health," explains Marc Richman, Flushd Co-Founder and COO, "We wanted to be able to lead a candid and open dialogue about health issues people may normally find embarrassing. When this happens, conditions remain undiagnosed. In situations like these, maybe our discussions will spark a desire for some of our users to consult a physician."

The founders also hope to raise awareness of sanitation issues globally. The Company will be launching a paid version of the app where the majority of future proceeds will be donated to sanitation charities globally.

"We are trying to create and support a worldwide 'movement'," added James Edwards. "Can a funny and novel approach to sanitation issues change the world one flush at a time? We think so."

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.

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...

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
