FRANKLIN, Tenn., April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Infiniti announced today that Edmunds.com has named the 2014 Infiniti Q50 among its "Top Rated Vehicles." The QX60 was also awarded as one of its "2014 Most Popular on Edmunds.com Midrange Luxury SUVs" and the QX80 was named as one of its "Most Popular on Edmunds.com Premium Luxury SUVs." Each of the vehicles was recognized during a presentation at the 2014 New York International Auto Show where Michael Bartsch, vice president of Infiniti Americas, accepted the award on the company's behalf.
The Edmunds.com testing team evaluates about 200 cars per year. Each vehicle is driven on a standardized road-test loop and evaluated on a test track for instrumented testing in controlled conditions. Edmunds.com uses its findings to grade how a car stacks up against its direct rivals in its size and price class. Infiniti's Q50 luxury sedan received an "A" rating when compared to its direct competitors in its class.
Building on Infiniti's legendary sports sedan styling, performance and technology leadership, the 2014 Infiniti Q50S is designed to create a new, distinct level of customer engagement. This luxury sports sedan helped establish a fresh new design, performance and technology direction for the brand when it debuted in early 2014 and offers a choice of powertrains including 3.7-liter V6 and 3.5-liter gas-electric hybrid V6. The Q50 also features world's first technologies designed to enhance the driver's experience, including Direct Adaptive Steering™, Active Lane Control™ and Predictive Forward Collision Warning.
First introduced for the 2013 model year, Infiniti's QX60 shook up the status quo with its innovative style, interior flexibility, innovative safety features and advanced hospitality features. Today, continues to offer real-world three-row utility, as well as all the premium features, performance and technological innovations Infiniti has become known for worldwide. In addition to Infiniti's signature emotive styling and craftsmanship, the 2014 QX60 also features segment-leading passenger and rear cargo volume, and extensive safety and security technologies, including Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection and an available world's first technology, Backup Collision Intervention (BCI) system.
The 2014 QX80 stands out in the full-size luxury SUV class, offering a unique and unmatched combination of the inspired exterior design, luxurious amenities for its 8-passengers inside and brute performance from a 5.6 liter V8 that's rugged enough to tow boats and trailers weighing up to 8,500-pounds (when properly equipped). As with the QX60, the QX80 incorporates a number of exciting standard features, such as Infiniti's Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection and the advanced BCI, available in the Technology Package for the 2014 model year.
Edmunds.com's recognition of the QX80 follows the global debut of a heavily refreshed QX80 at the New York International Auto Show for the 2015 model year. The 2015 QX80 offers many interior and exterior styling updates and for the first time ever, a new variant will be introduced. The QX80 Limited offers an extensive menu of exclusive ultra-luxury features and exterior styling updates that are part of an upgraded level of craftsmanship surpassing even the high standards of standard QX80s.

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

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, sha...
