Über Operations earns Consulting Partner status for Amazon Web Services(AWS)

Congratulations to all my colleagues, we worked hard to achieve this goal in a short amount of time!  Kudo's to all!
To quote our press release:  
Über Operations is proud to announce that we have earned Consulting Partner status for Amazon Web Services(AWS)! AWS is a collection of remote computing services that make up a cloud computing platform. Offering these services much faster and cheaper than traditional server computing, Amazon is the Cloud Computing leader in the industry.
We at Über Operations started out as customers; our engineers spent time developing and testing small amounts of data housing and data transfer, and as we grew comfortable with the functionality, we were very impressed by the speeds and cost efficiency of the services. We are ecstatic to announce, that after 9 months of trials, implementations, and experimentation, Über Operations is now a fully functional and operational Consulting Partner of AWS. We have 9 accredited team members, including our full time integration engineers, managing partners, operations support staff, contractors, and even our technical interns. Each accredited member is a hard-working individual making up the team that is Über Operations, who has been the healthcare data integration service provider for the state of Florida for the past ten years.

This November, 4 of our team members, @eddie@frans@phil, and @jeff will be attending the AWS re:Invent 2014 conference in Las Vegas, NV to collaborate ideas and sit in on presentations about cloud computing and bootcamps on various topics like coding and Exam Preparation. The guys are excited to represent us in Sin City and rub elbows with other big shots in the business of healthcare data.
Since we earned our Consulting Partner status with AWS, we would love everyone to check out our page in the Amazon Web Services Partner Network here. There you will find the extensive list of clients, certifications, and tools that we use and have to our name. Our data exchange platform, uberXchange, runs on the AWS cloud, and clients of Über Operations and users of the uberXchange platform include the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL).
This is a very exciting time for us with growth in such a key area for the future of cloud computing and data exchange. We'll keep you posted as we continue to add services on AWS.

New Crypto-Ransomware Emerge in the Wild

More proof that you should always have anti-virus/malware software not only installed, but active and with updated definitions.  I use Sophos UTM as the first tier as well as keeping my windows machines as well as keeping Sophos Endpoint Protection installed and Up2Date.
