MESA, AZ--(Marketwired - July 22, 2014) - NexGen Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: XGEN) announced today that it has entered into a joint venture agreement with SpaMan Spas of Arizona the state's oldest and largest Acrylic spa dealer and one of the top dealers in the country.

John Myers, CEO of both NexGen Holdings and NexGen Pools and Spas, stated, "This is a 'win-win' deal for both companies. SpaMan was looking for a north Scottsdale location and we wanted to team up with someone with the experience and buying and selling power of SpaMan."
Roger Abdin, CEO of SpaMan Spas, said, "Paddock is an iconic swimming pool brand and we are the State's leader is Acrylic Spas, it's a perfect fit to further develops both brands."
Steven Vollaro, Director of Sales for both of NexGen's swimming pool companies, said, "I am thrilled to be able to offer over 15 of the best selling Spas on the market. By combining with SpaMan we can continue to offer our customers the quality that Paddock has built its brand with while being able to do it at even better prices.
Steven continued, "Paddock has not had a spa line for quite a few years but as a SpaMan dealer Paddock hopes to regain its leadership role in this market and again sell over 130 Spas per year, or more from its Scottsdale location and generate at least another $1.2 million in annual sales."

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
