About the Company
Rupert Resources is a Canadian based gold exploration company. Rupert's objective is to obtain accretive investment opportunities in near term producing assets through active searches for development projects while simultaneously evaluating the developmental potential of its two assets - the Surf Inlet property in British Columbia and the Gold Centre property in Ontario. Rupert holds a 100% interest in the Gold Centre property, which has the distinction of being one of the best-positioned exploration land packages within the entire Red Lake gold mining camp. The Gold Centre property is partially surrounded by and on trend with one of the world's richest gold mines, Goldcorp, now working within 600m of Rupert's northwestern boundary.
In 2004, Rupert commenced an 11,900m drill program on the Gold Centre property consisting of two main holes and several daughter holes. Although, at the 2008 conclusion of this program no significant gold was found in that small area in the South West portion of the property, strong geological features were encountered. On the heels of a recent $510,000 private placement, the new Summer 2013 exploration program has been completed. A geophysical program delineated three strong I.P. anomalies, with two located in the northwestern portion, and one in the eastern portion of the property. They have been recommended as diamond drill targets. See press release, November 14, 2013.
Michael Sutton, P.Geo., a Director of Rupert Resources Ltd., and a Qualified Person ("QP"), has reviewed and approved the technical content of this news release.

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally. DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...

Recently virtual containers have been gaining in popularity, and for good reason. In the debate between virtual machines and containers, the latter have been seen as the new kid on the block – and like other emerging technology have had some initial shortcomings. However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...
