CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/13 -- The Board of Directors of Poseidon Concepts Corp. (TSX:PSN) (the "Company" or "Poseidon") recognizes that unpaid declared dividends are an outstanding debt owed to shareholders. The Board intends to pay the dividend, but has determined to defer the payment that was previously scheduled for January 15, 2013 to shareholders of record on December 31, 2012, in order to prioritize Poseidon's use of cash and future cash flow from operations towards strengthening Poseidon's financial position. Following the independent review of the Special Committee of the Board of Directors (see Press Release dated December 27, 2012), the Board intends to update shareholders on Poseidon's intentions regarding timing on payment of the January 15th dividend.

On January 10, 2013, Mr. Joe Kostelecky has resigned from his role as Executive Vice President, US Division. Mr. Angus Jenkins, Vice President, Operations has assumed Mr. Kostelecky's management responsibilities.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data.
