Dataram Corporation (NASDAQ: DRAM) today reported its financial results for its fourth quarter and year ended April 30, 2014.

The net loss in fiscal year ended April 30, 2014 totaled $2.6 million versus $4.6 million in the comparable prior year period.
John H. Freeman, Dataram’s President and CEO commented, “The primary factor impacting our financial results was a 13% industry wide decline in material cost per gigabyte and further industry standardization. Despite these industry wide challenges, we continue to see signs of revenue growth through our new partnerships, new distribution channels and further development of our software products.”
We continue to work on raising additional capital and on July 15, 2014 entered into a Subordinated Secured Convertible Bridge Note and Warrant Purchase Agreement for the issuance of up to $750,000 aggregate principal amount of Subordinated Secured Convertible Bridge Notes and Warrants. The Bridge Notes and Warrants were issued on July 15, 2014. The Company issued $600,000 aggregate principal amount of the Bridge Notes to certain institutional investors and $150,000 aggregate principal amount of the Bridge Notes to certain members of management, officers and directors of the Company.
Mr. Freeman concluded, “The sale of subordinated secured convertible notes will be used to fund further sales growth and software development. We intend to seek additional financing to help us execute our fiscal 2015 plan.”

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
