SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- OneRoof Energy, Inc., a complete solar services provider, today joined Empower America Coalition, Turrill Transitional and other San Bernardino business and elected officials to commemorate the opening of The McMillen House, the largest of its kind transitional housing program for military veterans in the Inland Empire. OneRoof Energy donated a 4.8kW Avancis solar system to the facility, in an effort to provide clean, affordable energy to local homeless veterans. This solar system will save the program an approximated $1,200 on monthly utility expenses, and nearly $50,000 over the course of the system's lifetime.
With more than 600 homeless veterans recorded in the Inland Empire, the opening of The McMillen House aims to curb homelessness by providing medical, legal and educational resources to foster smooth transition into civilian life.
"OneRoof Energy is committed to supporting our nation's military service men and women by partnering with organizations to improve veteran rehabilitation and transition," said OneRoof Energy CEO David Field. "By providing affordable solar solutions to veteran programs, and by continuing to offer employment to these former military members, we are able to give back to a deserved group that strongly supports the solar industry's success."
According to a recent report issued by The Solar Foundation, more than 13,000 U.S. veterans are employed in the solar industry, accounting for more than nine percent of all solar workers in the nation.
The McMillen House, backed by a Veterans Administration grant at no cost to local taxpayers, will serve 21 homeless veterans for up to two years. Today's grand opening event featured Congressional members, elected officials and military dignitaries. Alongside these officials, numerous local businesses such as unions, retailers, construction companies and financial service institutions, showed their community support by sponsoring the transitional housing program.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

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.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, explored HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
