#1 New York Times Best-Selling Author Dr. Ben Carson Releases New eBook With BookShout!

ONE VOTE + BookShout's Innovative Technology a Publishing Game Changer

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 23, 2014) - Dr. Ben Carson, renowned neurosurgeon and New York Times bestselling author, today announced the release of his groundbreaking new ebook: One Vote: Make Your Voice HeardThe ebook is available exclusively through BookShout!, the market-leading ebook platform known for creating new sales channels and unique author services.

Dr. Carson, a popular columnist and political commentator, wrote One Vote to explain how our amazing nation of innovators, thinkers and creators has become hamstrung by politics and inaction. One Vote lays out a simple, comprehensive way for readers to become more engaged in the fight for America's future, regardless of their political affiliation. With just weeks until the fall mid-term elections, One Vote is intended to jumpstart a campaign to end voter apathy and get voters ready to cast what could be their most important vote ever.

Dr. Carson chose BookShout! to be the exclusive ebook channel for One Vote because of its innovative services such as text-to-buy, social campaigns, audience building, gifting, bulk buying and more. "I want to motivate as many American voters as possible, as quickly as possible," noted Dr. Carson. "I believe that BookShout's technology and ebook platform can help me accomplish that and help us all be a part of saving America's future."

Dr. Carson's One Vote is a companion to his current #1 New York Times Bestseller, One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future, published by the Sentinel imprint of Penguin Random House. Together, these books pack a one-two punch that will engage voters across the political spectrum.

"We are excited to support Dr. Carson and his continued efforts to make a difference in the lives of American people," said Will Weisser, VP and Associate Publisher of the Sentinel imprint of Penguin Random House. "While One Nation continues to draw new readers in all print and electronic formats, it made more sense for him to publish One Vote in an ebook-first format, to get it out as quickly as possible before Election Day."

The new ebook is available for purchase in BookShout!'s store as is Dr. Carson's bestselling One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America's Future. Readers can seamlessly access One Vote and One Nation across multiple platforms including smartphones, tablets, and through any web browser. Digital copies will be made available to media outlets and organizations through redemption pages and special offers. A paperback version of One Vote will be published by Tyndale House through book retailers nationwide in late October.

"We are honored to serve Dr. Carson and his partners in this campaign," stated Jason Illian, CEO and founder of BookShout! "With the ebook landscape changing rapidly, we believe more authors and publishers will follow Dr. Carson's lead and leverage our digital tools and new sales channels."

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...

As Apache Kafka has become increasingly ubiquitous in enterprise environments, it has become the defacto backbone of real-time data infrastructures. But as streaming clusters grow, integrating with various internal and external data sources has become increasingly challenging. Inspection, routing, aggregation, data capture, and management have all become time-consuming, expensive, poorly performing, or all of the above. Elements erases this burden by allowing customers to easily deploy fully man...
Applications with high availability requirements must be deployed to multiple clusters to ensure reliability. Historically, this has been done by pulling nodes from other availability zones into the same cluster. However, if the cluster failed, the application would still become unavailable. Rancher’s support for multi-cluster applications is a significant step forward, solving this problem by allowing users to select the application and the target clusters, providing cluster specific data. Ranc...

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...

Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes. Writing these YAMLs, Dockerfile descriptors are really painful and error prone.Ballerina is a new cloud-native programing language which understands the architecture around it - the compiler is environment aware of microservices directly deployable into infra...
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...
Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solutionThe move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will become more and more prevalent At the heart of this technology trend exists a custom solution to meet the needs and concerns of these organizations, including compliance, security, and cost issues Blending Ser...
When a company wants to develop an application, it must worry about many aspects: selecting the infrastructure, building the technical stack, defining the storage strategy, configuring networks, setting up monitoring and logging, and on top of that, the company needs to worry about high availability, flexibility, scalability, data processing, machine learning, etc. Going to the cloud infrastructure can help you solving these problems to a level, but what if we have a better way to do things. ...
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.

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...
The KCSP program is a pre-qualified tier of vetted service providers that offer Kubernetes support, consulting, professional services and training for organizations embarking on their Kubernetes journey.

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...
