For the third straight year the company has been honored as one of Washington State's best places to work. These two awards are among several workplace and executive leadership distinctions bestowed on the growing software company. Last month, CEO Liz Pearce was recognized for her exceptional leadership and entrepreneurial spirit by Geekwire as a 2014 CEO of the Year nominee.

While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters.

It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...

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 use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way.
