WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Vape Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: VAPE) (the "Company"), a holding company focused on providing healthy, efficient, and sustainable vaporization products, is pleased to announce the filing of its 10Q quarterly report and record quarterly results for its fiscal third quarter ended June 30, 2014. The full 10Q filing is available in its entirety on the SEC's website at http://edgar.sec.gov.
For its fiscal third quarter of 2014 Vape generated record revenues of $361,781 which represents the Company's first revenue-generating fiscal quarter, despite its full product line not shipping to customers until mid-May. Since commencement of revenue-generating operations less than 100 days ago, the Company has recorded revenues of $392,540.
"We are extremely pleased with the Q3 2014 financial results that represent our first big push to market since our products began shipping full scale in mid-May," stated Vape CEO and Chairman Kyle Tracey. "Since the acquisition and launch of the HIVE Ceramics proprietary product line on March 27th, we have worked diligently to establish an infrastructure of authorized dealers and distribution partners around the world. We've been fortunate to leverage our industry experience and contacts and the resulting revenues represent a strong first step in capitalizing on those relationships."
Since the close of Q3 2014 on June 30th, the Company has announced the full-scale launch of its e-commerce site at www.HiveCeramics.com, an authorized dealer network of over 1,100 shops nationwide and its worldwide distribution reach with relationships established with noted industry distributors GotVape.com (USA), West Coast Gifts (Canada), Puff Pipes (Canada), DNA Genetics (Europe) and DNA Genetics' new South American distributor Pure DNA.
"We believe our work during Q3 2014 establishing our multi-faceted distribution strategy for HIVE will provide long-term value to our shareholders as we continue to expand the reach of our distribution network and product line to send high quality products to consumers around the globe," said Mr. Tracey.
As the Company's Q3, 2014 results indicate, Vape has incurred a net loss of $31,163,951 for the nine months ended June 30th due primarily to a substantial loss on the settlement of warrants in the amount of $29,528,844. The net loss due to settlement of the warrants was triggered by full ratchet anti-dilution adjustments in the warrants from a May 2011 financial raise by former management of the Company when it was known as PeopleString Corporation. Much of the settlement liability was recorded during Q2 2014. As of the filing of the Q3 2014 quarterly report there are an additional 1,250,131 warrants that remain outstanding out of a possible 8,400,000.
"The Company has worked promptly to resolve its warrant liability and has decreased its outstanding warrants to a fraction of what they were," stated Mr. Tracey. "We are confident we have taken the proper steps to put these issues behind us allowing Vape to focus on the growth and expansion of HIVE and its future operations."

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures.
Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer.
Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
