NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/28/14 -- Spring and summer are popular times for weddings, and during these seasons, Dr. Michael Kosdon sees a surge of patients at his New York City cosmetic dentistry practice seeking to touch up their smile for their big day. Since brides and grooms find themselves not only the center of attention but also the focus of the camera, they do not want cracks, chips, crooked teeth, or stains getting in the way of a beautiful smile, he says. To deliver fast, effective solutions for these dental issues, Dr. Kosdon recommends professional teeth whitening or porcelain veneers, helping patients feel confident and look their best.
In a recent pair of blog posts, Dr. Kosdon gives patients who want to quickly spruce up their smile some advice. "The fastest and most cost effective way to rejuvenate a smile is professional teeth whitening," says the New York cosmetic dentist. In his post titled, "Getting Married? Make Your Smile Shine," Dr. Kosdon details the two different whitening treatments he offers his patients. Using a combination of individually molded trays and a professional whitening gel, at-home treatments provide patients with a way to whiten on their own time as well as have complete control over the final shade of their teeth. Dr. Kosdon highlights an additional advantage, stating: "Unlike over-the-counter products, our at-home whitening treatments are custom-designed to reach and brighten every inch of your smile."
Patients looking for immediate results can choose Zoom!® teeth whitening treatments, which are performed in the office and deliver significant results in just one visit. "Zoom!® can lighten your teeth up to ten shades whiter," says Dr. Kosdon. This innovative procedure works by bleaching the patient's enamel and dentin with oxygen, producing an instantly brighter smile.
A follow-up blog post titled, "Quick-Fix For Cracked And Misaligned Teeth," is geared toward patients who wish to address minor structural issues with their smile. According to Dr. Kosdon, "porcelain veneers are able to transform a smile for patients with chipped, crooked, or cracked teeth." The procedure takes just a few visits and, in addition to restoring the appearance of the patient's smile, porcelain veneers can help prevent tooth decay.
Dr. Kosdon's goal during wedding season is to give his patients healthy, bright smiles that will shine in front of the camera. "If you are a bride or groom getting ready for your big day," says Dr. Kosdon, "give yourself the gift of the wedding -- and the smile -- of your dreams."

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. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...

However, communication seems to be the common denominator of the many challenges that project management methodologies intend to resolve. In this respect, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be viewed as powerful tools for managing projects. Few research papers have focused on the way...

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...
