Pure Launches Second Generation 'Pure Connect' Apps for iPad, iPhone and Android Devices in North America at CES 2013

Free New App Makes Music Discovery Easy

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 -- (International CES South Hall #36254) Today at CES 2013, Pure announces second generation 'Pure Connect' apps for iPad, iPhone and Android devices, which have been designed with content and music discovery at their heart to deliver a truly immersive and engaging user-experience.

The new Pure Connect app gives users access to local music on their smartphone or tablet, thousands of radio stations, on-demand programmes and podcasts, as well as millions of music tracks via the Pure Music subscription service(1). The free apps and new and improved Pure Connect website (www.pureconnect.com) have been designed with content at their heart and very simple, easy to use navigation. Music discovery is made easy with a seamless journey from the moment the user logs in thanks to the new 'discovery' section, which includes smart recommendations based on the user's history.

Control for Pure's new Jongo multiroom music system (announced today at CES) is built into the DNA of the free Pure Connect apps. The Pure Jongo system is the world's first family of affordable multiroom audio products and allows the user to start with a single speaker and add more Jongo products for perfectly synchronized audio all around their home.

All content is kept synced in the cloud and users can access their content intuitively from all devices wherever and whenever they want including PCs, Macs, iOS and Android devices, or any Pure Music streaming product that is linked to Pure Connect.

Pure Connect features content from Audioboo's(2) new initiative, In Their Own Words, which allows content creators such as musicians, authors, comedians and more to connect more closely with their fans by sharing all aspects of their creative process through the social spoken word.

"The design and user-experience that the new Pure Connect app delivers elevates it to be a best-in-class audio service," said Noam Meppen, Pure's director of sales, US. "Pure Connect offers a wealth of great content, while allowing users to explore related content and enjoy tailored recommendations. All this coupled with the customization controls users are accustomed to delivers a compelling new service for music lovers."

Coming soon: The Pure Connect website and apps include a full music store and Pure Music. A new 'friends' section will be added so that users can see what their friends are listening to and share playlists socially.

The new, second generation Pure Connect apps will be available in North America in the first quarter of 2013.

Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability to truly gain value from all their data. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, David Tishgart, Director of Product Marketing at Cloudera, covered the ins and outs of Hadoop, and how it can help cloud-based businesses.
The best way to leverage your Cloud Expo presence as a sponsor and exhibitor is to plan your news announcements around our events. The press covering Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo will have access to these releases and will amplify your news announcements. More than two dozen Cloud companies either set deals at our shows or have announced their mergers and acquisitions at Cloud Expo.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
