Michel Taride, President, Hertz International, said: "It is a big pleasure for us to celebrate the 15th anniversary of our partnership with KrisFlyer, Singapore Airlines' frequent flyer program. Hertz's innovative rental car services offered at approximately 10,090 locations around the world together with KrisFlyer's benefits and rewards make this partnership a strong benefit for customers.

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...

While traditional SAN-based clusters are not possible in these environments, SANless cluste...
