DALLAS, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- HOUSTON – Following intense bidding among seven hopeful buyers, Heritage Luxury Real Estate Auctions® has announced the pending sale of a spacious and elegant home at Houston's prestigious Royal Oaks Country Club for $1.98+ million. The sale of the 7,000-square-foot, five-bed, five-bath residence generated the highest price per square foot in the exclusive Estates community in nearly a decade and is expected to close in just 10 days.

Heritage's extensive, customized national marketing campaign for the home achieved more than 11,600 property website views and more than 200 direct inquiries. More than 50 property viewings took place during the five-day preview. Heritage catered to seven qualified active clients and each presented $100,000 in guaranteed funds before vigorously bidding for the opportunity to call the estate their home.

"The auction generated the highest price per square foot in the Estates at Royal Oaks Country Club since 2008," said Nate Schar, Co-Director of Luxury Real Estate at Heritage. "And the home sold at the high-end of our property analysis, meaning both the seller and the buyer found extremely favorable fair market terms and an exceptionally fast closing period. This is how all luxury real estate auctions should advance."

The lavishly-appointed, fully-automated mansion featured more than 7,000 square feet of living space, soaring 13-foot ceilings, a gourmet kitchen leading to an expansive lanai and pool. The tranquil, first-floor master suite showcased a custom 10-foot window wall with automatic privacy blinds and a spa-like master bath adorned with travertine. The home, overlooking the exclusive Fred Couples Signature Golf Course, also included a guest suite with private entrance, kitchenette, and its own 1.5 car garage.

"This was a highly desirable, meticulously landscaped property in Royal Oaks Country Club, one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in Houston," Schar said. "It was the perfect property to be sold at auction since the auction platform creates a true bidding war bringing multiple buyers to the table versus a traditional real estate listing."

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.
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? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

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.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
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. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. 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. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications?

The material was delivered interac...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
