VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- Digital Payment Technologies (http://www.digitalpaytech.com) (DPT) and Creative Parking Concepts announced the deployment of 40 LUKE II parking pay stations in the city of Chattanooga, Tenn. Installed by Creative Parking Concepts, and managed by the newly formed Chattanooga Parking Authority, a division of the Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority (CARTA), the new solar-powered multi-space pay stations replace 286 single-head parking meters. The new pay stations will be deployed by the end of January 2013.
CARTA has been using pay stations from DPT since 2007, and the 40 new solar-powered meters bring the total to 68 in the city. The Chattanooga Parking Authority made the decision to expand the city's multi-space pay stations to both the revitalized riverfront district and the City Center. Consumers parking in these areas will benefit from the convenient option to pay with coins credit cards. Additionally customers will now have the added convenience of paying by phone on all of the pay stations. From the management and parking enforcement perspective, the pay stations will also make enforcement more efficient.
"These are high turnover areas and multi-space pay stations are the perfect fit," said Brent Matthews, director of parking at CARTA. "We appreciate the pay stations' ease-of-use, quick troubleshooting and overall reliability. We've had great success with DPT pay stations, and the ability to pay with a credit card or by phone is a great convenience for the consumer. We are also working to offer smart cards later this year. The pay stations give us the flexibility to employ new parking technology and improve customer service."
Added David Hoyt, regional sales manager at Digital Payment Technologies, "We are pleased that CARTA has continued to invest in our pay stations. The reliability, ability to streamline enforcement and multiple payment options make our pay stations the best choice for today's parking needs. Also, the pay stations' modular construction and backend software, allow the pay stations to be easily upgraded over time as parking needs evolve. This makes DPT a great investment for today, and the future."
The new parking pay stations in Chattanooga will accept payment via credit cards, coins and by phone. Parking rates remain at $0.75 per hour.

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?
"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.
They are not.
One is about the application. The other, the network. T...

Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say?
I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...

There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity.
We apply image optimization and minification to content.
We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle.

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project.
This post assumes that you...

Sharding has become a popular means of achieving scalability in application architectures in which read/write data separation is not only possible, but desirable to achieve new heights of concurrency. The premise is that by splitting up read and write duties, it is possible to get better overall performance at the cost of a slight delay in consistency. That is, it takes a bit of time to replicate changes initiated by a "write" to the read-only master database. It's eventually consistent, and it'...
