AppFlood's RTB reach into China is a perfect fit for latest partner Bidstalk

  • Bidstalk's global footprint gives significant boost to AppFlood's mobile ad inventory
  • AppFlood integration boosts Bidstalk's global reach, particularly across China and Asia

London & Beijing, 3 July 2014 - AppFlood (www.appflood.com), the China-based global mobile real time bidding (RTB) exchange, today announced it had added Bidstalk, the mobile advertising and app monetization platform, to its growing list of mobile advertising partners. The deal brings together AppFlood's existing ad network and Bidstalk's white-label DSP solution, which is already processing more than 10 billion advertising bids each day.

Launched in April, AppFlood's mobile RTB is the first to overcome the technical challenges that until now have prevented RTB exchanges from effectively delivering mobile ad inventory in China. Several of the mobile industry's leading DSPs, SSPs and advertising exchanges have since partnered with AppFlood to link western advertisers and audiences to China, and vice-versa.

Chris Hanage, General Manager EMEA at AppFlood, said he's excited to have Bidstalk on-board given its meteoric rise over the past six months.

"China has some of the most successful and fastest growing mobile and lifestyle brands in the world, and they are focused on expanding into new markets through mobile advertising. At the same time, China's 700 million smartphone users are an untapped market for Western brands and companies. By partnering with Bidstalk, we have not only increased AppFlood's global reach, but Bidstalk's customers will now be able to deliver truly global campaigns thanks to our ability to connect than to this rapidly growing Chinese mobile audience."

Bidstalk has grown rapidly since announcing their arrival at Mobile World Congress in February. Bidstalk's white-label mobile DSP solution allows advertisers to place highly targeted smart ads on thousands of premium mobile apps, and its Ad Server allows for maximisation of ad revenues for mobile app developers.

Vipul Jain, CMO and Co-Founder of Bidstalk, said the partnership with AppFlood to boost their access to premium inventory in China and across Asia was an important part of its growth plans.

"Since our launch just six months ago, we've identified emerging markets across Asia as a focus area to continue our rapid growth. We've seen a significant increase in demand for Asian inventory from our advertising partners, and AppFlood's RTB platform will help us meet that demand."

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore’s Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, to discuss how infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical.
Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.

Cloud and Big Data present unique dilemmas: embracing the benefits of these new technologies while maintaining the security of your organization’s assets. When an outside party owns, controls and manages your infrastructure and computational resources, how can you be assured that sensitive data remains private and secure?
