SAN FRANCISCO, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pachamama Alliance, a 501c3 organization whose vision is to bridge ancient wisdom with the modern world to bring forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling and socially just world, announces its schedule of 2014 Pachamama Journeys. Journey destinations include indigenous communities in the pristine rainforest of Ecuador, and to a special ceremonial center and community in New Mexico. The experiences are designed to expand the mind, open the heart, and stir the soul.
The journeys offered by the Pachamama Alliance are purposeful travel immersions that go far beyond conventional eco-tourism and adventure travel. The participant is invited into a deeper relationship with the people and lands visited, with a rare opportunity to connect with indigenous communities, traditions, and wisdom; engage in sacred ceremonies and deep reflection; and experience profound connection with the natural world while being held in a mutually supportive community.
The experience is not only transformative on a personal level; it is also connected to a larger vision for the world. Participants frequently report feeling deeply transformed after their participation in a Journey. Adam DeVito said,"My journey into the heart of the rainforest with the Pachamama Alliance was one of the most potent experiences of my life. I had the feeling of being guided back in time as I went deeper into my own true self. I returned so alive and much more awakened to my life's greater purpose."
Vinit Allen, a participant to the sacred ceremonial grounds in New Mexico stated that "The Arawaka journey was incredible for me – I would even say life-changing. I can't recommend this highly enough! "
The 2014 Journeys calendar from the Pachamama Alliance includes eight different journeys, each with a unique focus. Participants can explore earth-based spirituality, shamanism, or an immersion in the warmth and wisdom of the Achuar, Shuar, or Sápara peoples.
- May 3 to 9, 2014: Journey in the North: An Immersion in Indigenous Wisdom and Earth-Based Spirituality
- June 7 to 19, 2014: An Immersion with the Achuar
- July 10 to 21, 2014: An Intimate Journey to the Achuar
- August 7 to 19, 2014: Immersion with the Sápara
- August 29 to September 4, 2014: Journey in the North: An Immersion in Indigenous Wisdom and Earth-Based Spirituality
- October 1 to 13, 2014: Achuar Immersion with a shamanic emphasis
- October 18 to 30, 2014: Amazonian Immersion with the Sarayaku-Kichwa and Achuar

The Amazonian Immersion trip in October has been selected for National Geographic Traveler's 2014 "50 Tours of a Lifetime," based on their criteria of "most authentic, most innovative, most immersive, best-guided, and most sustainable tours" in the world.
All of the journeys offered by the Pachamama Alliance help the indigenous communities maintain a sustainable livelihood, and help raise awareness of the gifts and wisdom they hold that is so relevant and vital to our present time and state of our planet.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

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. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

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...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
