Posiflex (www.posiflexusa.com) increases functionality of three new terminals with projected capacitive flat, multi-touch, bezel free touch screens as a standard feature, at no extra cost. The XT5315, is a high performance touch screen terminal with a choice of three CPUs, capable of running demanding resource-intensive applications. The XT4015 touch terminal, previously with resistive touch, is now shipping with projected capacitive screens making multi-touch features now affordable. The HS2310, is an ultra-small all-in-one terminal with an integrated printer and MSR and is ideal where counter space is at a premium.

A 15 inch projected capacitive touch screen is a standard feature for the XT4015 / XT5315. The advantages of having projected capacitive touch include: 10-point multi-touch capability, a bezel-free 100% flat surface for a clean sleek appearance, a scratch-resistant surface to withstand the harshest environments, and works with gloves for maximum input flexibility. The mid-performance XT4015 and the high performance XT5315 have a collapsible folding base configurable for maximum viewing flexibility and reduced shipping costs.
Shipping soon, the high performance 15” XT5315 with projected capacitive touch screen has a choice of three powerful embedded Intel™ processors (Haswell) to choose from: Celeron® G1820 (2.70 GHz), Core™ i3 4330TE (2.40 GHz), or Core™ i5 4570TE (3.30 GHz) supporting up to 16 GB of RAM. Operating system options include Windows Embedded POS Ready 7, Windows 7 Professional and Windows Embedded 8.1. As the XT5315 uses embedded CPU and operating systems, long term support and availability by Intel and Microsoft are assured, critical for long term store roll outs. The XT5315 also has an optional powered USB upgrade kit with (1) 24V USB 2.0 port, and (3) 12V USB 2.0 ports for additional peripherals, eliminating power brick and cable clutter.
Available now, the mid-range performance XT4015 with a 15 inch projected capacitive touch screen that has three Intel™ processors (Haswell) to choose from: the Celeron® G540 2.5 GHz, Core™ i3-3220 3.3GHz, or the Core™ i5-3550 3.7 GHz supporting up to 16GB of RAM.
The HS2310 All-in-One solution, shipping soon, allows every inch of valuable counter space to be used. With a footprint of a standard receipt printer, this 10” projected capacitive touch screen terminal comes integrated with a 3” thermal printer, magnetic stripe reader, WiFi and optional secondary customer displays. The HS2310, just taller than a wine bottle, runs the same software image as the widely-deployed Posiflex XT3215 and KS7215 touch screen terminals. This means there is instantly a wide suite of applications that are seamlessly compatible, including self-service kiosk or POS systems for small and medium-sized hospitality, retail or convenience stores.

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of app...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
