PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/11/14 -- HP (NYSE: HPQ) today announced a series of new HP Officejet Pro inkjet printers designed to simplify printing for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

SMBs are looking to ink technology for their printing needs because of the cost savings, improved print speeds and added functionality ink delivers. By 2016, business inkjet printers are expected to represent 56 percent of all print devices used by U.S. businesses.(1) Delivering on this need, the HP Officejet Pro 8600 series is compatible with services such as HP Instant Ink and features like mobile print and print management solutions to help business owners save time and money, allowing them to focus on their business.

"Small business owners are constantly looking for ways to reduce operating costs and increase productivity," said Stephen Nigro, senior vice president, Inkjet and Printing Solutions and Graphics Solutions Business, Printing and Personal Systems Group, HP. "These new inkjet printers deliver the high-quality printing our customers expect, while helping reduce costs and increase efficiency with the availability of HP Instant Ink replacement service and the latest mobile print technology."

The suite of new HP Officejet Pro printers are eligible for HP Instant Ink, HP's ink replacement service that can save customers up to 50 percent on ink.(5) With HP Instant Ink, customers can enroll in one of three monthly plans allowing the printer to order Original HP replacement cartridges before the ink runs out.(6) The plans are based on the number of pages printed, not cartridges used, and customers pay a low monthly fee whether printing high-quality black and white, color documents or photos.

These new HP Officejet Pro 8600 series printers meet Mopria global standards for delivering simple wireless printing from smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.

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.
