Pet Waste Sorted; for Home & Away!

LEDBURY, England, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

After its second year of trading success, The dooup Complete Pet Waste Clearer continues to wow customers with its five-in-one functionality that covers, clears, sanitises, stores and seals away pet waste. The unique patent-pending 'scoop-flush' technology is the first of its kind, offering dog owners a comprehensive and hygienic way to clear waste from their home environments.

With the second product, The dooup Walkeez, due for launch this summer, dooup is set to be the 'go to' brand for animal waste clearance. Like The dooup CPWC, The dooup Walkeez is the first of its kind and finally provides dog walkers with a reason to divert from the 'hand in the bag' method. The Walkeez is designed for convenience; a 'grab and go' product that holds everything needed for a short or long dog walk. It attaches comfortably to the body and to the lead to enable a hands-free walking experience which works as added security when walking near busy roads. With the option of hand sanitiser, dog water bottle, and waste bags already loaded to the accessible, yet carefully concealed 'easy draw and store' scoop, there are many reasons for taking this out on a walk. An additional section to store full waste bags is kept hygienically confined so that the walker is no longer reliant on finding a dog poo bin. Further benefits such as pockets for treats to assist with training, and a section for a ball thrower or umbrella, all work to give extra purpose to this 'carryall', light-weight, convenient pack. Easy to fit and detach at the click of a button, ensuring comfort and safety. The design includes reflective lining for extra visibility when walking in the dark.

Brand dooup is about making it easier for dog owners to be more responsible and mindful of hygiene, particularly with regards to dog waste clearance. By providing advancement for clearing and storing dog waste, dog owners are more likely to change their habits for the better.

The dooup CPWC and The dooup Walkeez are both innovative products that are perfectly positioned as the best clearing and storing devices to path the way for a future of turning dog waste into energy. The prospect of implementing units across communities that work as deposit stations for animal waste, collected and stored by dooups, will work to encourage dog owners to respect this hazardous waste, thus reducing the amount left in public areas. The products provide an easier, more convenient way to clear and are therefore more likely to encourage careful disposal that will assist in diverting the amount of dog waste that is usually sent to landfill which currently costs the UK government in excess of £70 million per year (not including the costs to clear public areas). This waste can be utilised for the benefit of communities, to power street lamps, heat public libraries or create power for other community projects.

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.

In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackI...
Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets.
