IRVINE, Calif. and LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VIZIO announced today its spring 2013 line-up of Windows 8 PCs, equipped with 10-finger capacitive touch displays on every new model. Seamless touchscreen technology and premium entertainment enhancements to the new spring line give users the ideal interactive Windows 8 experience, supported by outstanding picture quality and rich audio. VIZIO will be showcasing select PC models at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV, January 7 -11, 2013 at the Wynn Hotel, by appointment.
In an effort to provide consumers with an unrivaled, yet tailored entertainment experience that meets specific needs and preferences, VIZIO is introducing consumers to both AMD and Intel processor options for the 24" All-in-One Touch, 14" and 15.6" Thin + Light Touch models. Powered by AMD's latest high performance A10 quad-core APU with Radeon™ HD graphics, these models deliver strikingly rich visuals, and an immersive gaming experience, while providing the processing power ideal for serious multi-tasking. For top-of-the-line performance, models using Intel's 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad-core processor—featuring Intel Turbo Boost Technology—consumers get the high-performance expected from Intel to support applications that need maximum compute power, plus a boost of speed as needed.
The spring 2013 PC line-up is highlighted by the 15.6" (CT15T-B0, CT15T-B1) and 14" (CT14T-B0, CT14T-B1) versions of the Thin + Light Touch, which are on display at CES. These new models are exceptional choices for consumers looking for optimal performance in an exquisitely designed, premium PC. Showcasing an ultra-thin profile, multi-gesture touchscreen, AMD A10 APU or Intel® Core™ i7, and improved battery life rating along with a large Full HD screen for the 15.6" and HD+ for the 14", the Thin + Light Touch performs like a desktop, but provides the convenience of mobility with an ultra-thin chassis that lets consumers take that performance with them.
Also on display at CES will be the 24" (CA24T-B0, CA24T-B1) and 27" (CA27T-B1) All-in-One Touch PCs. With stunning, Full HD 1080p displays, enhanced 2.1 audio system with subwoofer, remote control and dual HDMI inputs, the VIZIO All-in-One Touch PC delivers world-class entertainment and performance. An alluring PC with sleek lines, wireless keyboard and improved, multi-gesture touchpad, it's as beautiful as it is functional.
Rounding out the spring 2013 PC line-up is VIZIO's entry into the tablet PC category. The VIZIO 11.6" Tablet PC is powered by the AMD Z-60 APU featuring Radeon™ HD graphics, and runs Windows 8 to allow consumers to run all of their Windows-compatible software just as they would on their desktop or laptop PC. The VIZIO 11.6" Tablet PC offers the full functionality of Windows 8 in a slim ultra-portable form factor ideal for work or play.
"We're committed to consistently producing a line of premium PCs that places the wants and needs of consumers first, and the new Touch PCs are no different," said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. "The spring PC line puts the latest technologies and innovations right at the consumers' fingertips, giving them the power to easily get the most out of their PC."
Beyond the sleek design and processing power of this line, VIZIO continues to leverage its HDTV background, as all new VIZIO PCs feature brilliant picture quality, high contrast and wider viewing angles at the forefront. The expertly-tuned SRS Premium Sound HD™ audio system, a DTS technology, delivers rich audio quality to complement the superior video performance for deep, resonant sound perfect for getting the most out of music, movies, games and more.
Additionally, VIZIO increased connectivity speed by upgrading its models to the latest in Wi-Fi, 802.11ac, one of the first PC OEMs to do so. About 3 times faster than standard 802.11n¹, consumers are able to stream HD content not only faster, but smoother.
"VIZIO brings a fresh approach to personal computers. They design their products to serve the wants of their end customers, more like a consumer electronics company. Their new Spring line-up gives consumers and partners a choice of premium entertainment experiences as well as powerful performance," said Patrick Moorhead, President and Principal Analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy.
To further ensure a premium consumer experience, VIZIO once again delivers the category's only PC line-up all equipped with Microsoft Signature for Windows. No junk ware, meticulous configuration, built-in world-class security software, and 90 days free Microsoft Signature support from Microsoft. It's an excellent Windows 8 experience on your PC.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and ma...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
