Starting today, drivers can experience TomTom’s Navigation app for iPhone for 30 days at a cost of $0.99. The new trial app includes access to TomTom Traffic, helping drivers to get there faster.
The trial app includes all the features and functionality of the latest TomTom Navigation app and includes a subscription to world-class traffic information from TomTom Traffic. TomTom Traffic allows drivers to get to their destination faster with the most precise and accurate real-time information.
The quality of TomTom Traffic is determined by:
1. Road Coverage. TomTom Traffic covers 99.9% of all road types, versus competitive TMC based traffic with only 9% coverage.
2. Reliability of Data. TomTom Traffic uses a leading pool of crowd-sourced data from more than 150 million drivers in North America.
3. Accuracy of reports. TomTom Traffic pinpoints accurate traffic reports in real-time.
4. Update frequency. TomTom Traffic delivers updated traffic info every two minutes.
“For the first time, we are offering iPhone and iPad owners the chance to experience the power of premium TomTom Navigation and TomTom Traffic for themselves,” said Jocelyn Vigreux, President of TomTom, Inc. “Once drivers experience how TomTom can help them avoid traffic and get there faster, we are confident they won’t want to drive without TomTom ever again.”
With the trial app, consumers will enjoy the same turn-by-turn navigation trusted by 70 million drivers, tailored for iPhone and iPad. Maps are stored on the device, so drivers don’t need to worry about mobile data coverage or charges. And with Free Lifetime Maps, updated with each app release, drivers can always navigate with the most accurate TomTom maps. In addition, IQ Routes provides the fastest routes and most accurate arrival times based on the time and date of travel.
The app can be purchased from the iTunes App Store.

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
