NEW YORK and POINT ROBERTS, Washington, September 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
(http://www.investorideas.com) a global news source covering leading sectors including food and beverage stocks issues the updated September wine stocks directory for investors.
As global wine consumption continues to rise, interest in participating in the sector has also grown. Separate from investing in publicly traded wine companies, a new crowdfunding platform dedicated to the wine industry has created an interesting way to play in the sector. Although participants do not get shares for their funding, they do get an equivalent in kind.
According to their site (https://www.fundovino.com), it is free for donors and project owners to register on Fundovino and present a project. When a target amount is reached or exceeded, the funds are released to the project owner, after deduction of a 3% bank transaction fee and a 5% commission for Fundovino. If it is not reached, donors are eligible for a full refund.
Project owners accept a sort of "moral contract" with donors. When they receive their donations, they promise to offer an in-kind reward within a period of up to several months. This system is therefore based on trust between donors and project owners. By promising a gift in exchange for donations, project owners put their reputation on the line to satisfy their donors.

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.
