Rostock Ventures Announces LOI for a Strategic Joint Venture With Weed Media to Launch GEO Marketing Campaign in Colorado

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/15/14 -- Rostock Ventures Corp. (OTCBB:ROSV) (the "Company") is pleased to announce a letter of intent for a strategic Joint Venture Marketing and Tech Support with Weed Media. Weed Media is owned and operated by Rostock advisor Todd Ellison who is well known for his knowledge in the marijuana sector. Forming a strategic joint venture with Weed Media, which already has a foothold at ground zero (Colorado/California); Rostock is poised for success in penetrating local marijuana commerce.

"After many discussions with Todd Ellison, we feel this JV will be monumental in the success of iWeedz. Weed Media not only has the expertise, but already has over 150,000 members and numerous dispensaries where we can make available the iWeedz mobile app as well. We've always believed deploying a geo niche marketing campaign was the way to roll out iWeedz. We have now made application for our Apple and Google developer license as well as building the API for the mobile app. In doing our due diligence in marijuana commerce we have found the dispensaries would much rather deal with a company with tech support staffing in Denver. For this reason we have postponed the initial launch for the iWeedz app which will commence after obtaining Weed Media services," stated Gregory Rotelli, President, Rostock Ventures.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets?

Further, serverless computing, cl...
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.
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure.

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
