Commenting on the agreement, Virgin America, Director of Quality Assurance, Nick Brohm, stated, "Providing an inventive systems approach was a key driver of our decision.  AirVault's experience with airlines around the world offered Virgin America a framework of best practices specific to aircraft maintenance records that was easy to configure and integrate with our current aircraft engineering systems." 

Virgin America is the U.S. domestic airline known for its top-notch service and three beautifully designed classes of service.  The airline has swept the major travel awards since its 2007 launch, including being named "Best Domestic Airline" in both Condé Nast Traveler's Readers' Choice Awards and Travel + Leisure's World's Best Awards for the past six years.

AirVault CEO, John Oldham, said, "We are proud of Virgin America's choice of AirVault as their mission-critical information management service for aircraft maintenance.  AirVault shares Virgin America's vision of innovation and providing premier service, pushing the use of advanced technology to improve their aircraft maintenance operations and environmental sustainability.  AirVault's cloud-computing technology offered Virgin America significant competitive advantages to manage their fleet growth, along with the providing reductions in computer processing equipment and power consumption over traditional IT systems."   

Cloud computing has emerged as the perfect systems architecture for carriers to manage their maintenance operations and communications in harmony with their worldwide supply chain, lessors, and regulatory authorities.  Airlines today are seeking technologies that can support the broader task of managing a dynamic network of internal and external operations, while more effectively maintaining the tracking and retrieval capabilities for regulatory compliance.  Virgin America recognized AirVault's ability to provide a global conduit to better manage the bi-directional processes of managing aircraft maintenance records files for a more mobile workforce, in synchronization with their internal operations and maintenance partners.

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. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
