Boxing Sensation Amir Khan Comes To Childsplay Clothing

Friday 5 September, 2014
Renowned boxing sensation and champion Amir Khan will be returning to the UK this weekend after taking a well-deserved family holiday to Miami with wife, Faryal Makhdoom Khan 22, and  3 month old daughter, Lamaisah. Amir Khan will be spending quality time with his family whilst in the UK, and we hear shopping is on the top of his list. On the agenda for his short stay is a visit to Childsplay Clothing the UK’s leading retailer of luxury childrenswear. They will be welcoming the former two time world champion, aged 27 with his family on Sunday 7 th September, before the Olympic boxing medallist jets off to the United States. The most sought after labels in the fashion industry such as Armani, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and Roberto Cavalli are set to make their way into little Lamaisah’s AW14 wardrobe. Established for over 20 years, Childsplay Clothing is globally recognised and is one of the world’s leading retailers of children’s designer clothing. Stocking hundreds of classic designer brands; with fresh labels added to the selection every season.  Childsplay Clothing continues to grow, develop and soar. Khan’s first stop when he hits the States will be Las Vegas to watch the Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana rematch which is taking place the following weekend at the MGM Grand Arena. Everyone is interested in what next is on the cards for Khan and there has been plenty of speculation over the past couple of years regarding potential fights. The most talked about being a super-fight between Khan and the unbeaten Mayweather, widely recognised as ‘pound for pound’ the best fighter in the world. This would delight fans and Mayweather has spurred on hopes by recently stating "If you ask me will the fight happen, then I would say yes”. However with Sheffield boxer Kell Brook recently capturing the IBF World Welterweight title, talk is growing that this could potentially lead to another blockbuster domestic dust-up and daring showdown at Wembley next year following on from the huge success of the Froch v Groves re-match in May earlier this year. More interesting are the thoughts of Khan himself and his opinions on potential future opponents. Khan’s comment - “Mayweather would be a very technical fight, like a game of chess. But I think Manny Pacquiao would be harder. He's much more aggressive and it would be more intense” - suggests that though Mayweather would be an intriguing opponent, Pacquiao would be more challenging. Further comments from  Amir Khan  confirms his eagerness to fight the Filipino - “I’m ready to fight wherever, whether it’s in Vegas, Macau or Dubai”. While Amir khan awaits Mayweather he will be going into training camp with trainer Virgil Hunter in San Francisco to prepare for a fight on 6 th December against an as of yet unnamed opponent.

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embr...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, will discuss how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galer...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that pro...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
Technology has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. From onion architectures to APIs to microservices to cloud and containers, the technology artifacts shipped by teams has changed. And that's not all - roles have changed too. Functional silos have been replaced by cross-functional teams, the skill sets people need to have has been redefined and the tools and approaches for how software is developed and delivered has transformed. When we move from highly defined rigid roles and systems to ...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex ...

If you are part of the cloud development community, you certainly know about “serverless computing,” almost a misnomer. Because it implies there are no servers which is untrue. However the servers are hidden from the developers. This model eliminates operational complexity and increases developer productivity. We came from monolithic computing to client-server to services to microservices to the serverless model. In other words, our systems have slowly “dissolved” from monolithic to function-...
