Holders who validly tender (and do not validly withdraw) their 2019 Notes also will be paid accrued and unpaid interest up to, but not including, the applicable date of payment for the tendered 2019 Notes (if such 2019 Notes are accepted for purchase).

In addition, the Offer is conditioned upon the Co-Issuers having completed a new debt financing transaction on terms acceptable to the Co-Issuers.

The terms of the Offer are described in the Co-Issuers' Offer to Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement dated April 8, 2014 (the "Offer to Purchase").

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.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
