Glympse Unveils Pebble smartwatch Integration

Pebble Wearers Can Now Share Location in Real-Time While on the Move

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/15/14 -- Glympse, the pioneer of temporary location sharing technology, has just announced the availability of their award-winning application on Pebble smartwatch for both iOS and Android. With this latest integration, Pebble wearers can share their real-time location and ETA with anyone directly from their watch.

With the Pebble smartwatch, iOS and Android users who have the Glympse companion app on their phone can easily access and share their location with friends with a few quick taps. They can view their active Glympse messages and quickly expire or add additional time in 15-minute increments. Pebble wearers with the iOS app can share location with their selected shortcuts or recent Glympse messages. Android users can send a Glympse to shortcuts, recent Glympse messages, and contacts within their call log or favorite contacts. Recipients receive a live map of the sender's whereabouts as they move from location to location.

"We've been focused on making it easy for anyone to share their location at anytime. By partnering with Pebble, we are enabling their hundreds of thousands of users the ability to share their location, in real-time, wherever they are," said Rob Foley, director, partner development at Glympse. "Glympse provides the flexibility to share location in the moment, and answers the question of 'where are you?' in a simple, elegant and dynamic way."

As with all Glympse integrations, the sender's location is only available for a set period of time, for up to four hours. Once the Glympse has expired, access to their current location is no longer available. Recipients do not need to have the app or device to view the message, and they can access the live map through any web or mobile browser.

In the past year, Glympse has partnered with dozens of top tier global brands and companies, including BMW, Ford, GM, Gogo, Garmin, Mercedes, Google, Samsung and Verizon to bundle its location sharing technology into apps and devices serving millions of users globally, and the company has become the partner of choice in the location sharing space.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand.

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 micro services. 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 contain...

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...
