Since bursting onto the music scene 10 years ago, Kelly Clarkson has released 5 studio albums (Thankful, Breakaway, My December, All I Ever Wanted, Stronger), sold over 20 million albums worldwide, 10 million albums in the US and has had 10 singles in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart.

The album is certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A. and produced the smash singles, "Mr. Know It All" and "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" which marks Kelly's 9th and 10th Top 10 hit. "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" was #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart for two consecutives weeks (3 weeks total) marking her 3rd #1 on the Hot 100 chart after 2002's "A Moment Like This" and 2009's "My Life Would Suck Without You."

Canadian singer/songwriter and breakout pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen has taken America by storm after bursting onto the scene in the US with her hit single "Call Me Maybe." Unforgettably catchy, the hit song which she co-wrote quickly rose to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart where it remained for nine consecutive weeks claiming the longest Hot 100 No. 1 run of 2012. Certified quintuple-platinum in Jepsen's native Canada the track is also an international sensation, climbing to No. 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in over 37 countries and selling more than 10 million singles worldwide, while the official video has racked up more than 325 million views on YouTube.

Carly Rae Jepsen is currently touring this fall with Justin Bieber on the multi-platinum Pop/R&B sensation's 2012 headlining 'Believe' tour of North America.
South Korean singer and rapper PSY has quickly become an international sensation with the 2012 breakout hit, "Gangnam Style." The artist, born Park Jae-Sang, began his music career in 2001 with the album PSY from the PSYcho World! The album's in-your-face lyrics connected well with Korean teens but also ignited some controversy, resulting in fines and a restriction of sales to adults only. He capitalized on the publicity by releasing two more albums, Sa 2 and 3 PSY, a year later, which earned songwriting accolades at the 2004 SBS and Seoul Music Awards. PSY's third album, Sa Jib (Sa House), followed in 2006, along with more honors from the SBS Music Awards and M.net KM Music Festival. Aside from his regular recording and performing duties, PSY became a familiar face with appearances on Korean game shows like X-Man and talk shows like Golden Fishery, bringing his flashy style and offbeat charm to the masses. His fifth album, PSY Five, arrived in 2010 as the artist signed to YG Entertainment, one of Korea's largest talent agencies and record labels, and took home trophies from the Melon, Seoul, and M.net Asian Music Awards ceremonies. PSY kicked off 2011 with Best Album honors from the 20th High1 Seoul Music Festival, and by the following spring he joined the cast of the Korean televised talent competition Superstar K as judge. His fame reached international status in the summer of 2012 with the release of the album PSY's Best 6th Part 1, propelled by the single "Gangnam Style," which he immortalized in a video with campy choreography that simulated riding a horse. Within a month of its release, the video racked up over 28 million hits on YouTube and inspired parody clips from all corners of the globe. PSY is currently signed to Schoolboy Records.
Since 2009, THE WANTED – Tom Parker, Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, and Nathan Sykes – have become front-page news with their ferociously infectious tunes, rock solid friendship and laddish charms. Since the release of their debut #1 single two years ago, "All Time Low" (from their self-titled debut album of 2010), they have become a sensation in the UK, Ireland, South East Asia, and across Europe, piling up a string of five Top 3 singles in the UK. In the wake of their 2012 U.S. mini-tour, The Wanted's single "Glad You Came" blasted into the Billboard Hot 100's Top 10, and jumped to #9-bullet on the Top 40 Airplay chart. Success hasn't stopped there, as their follow-up single "Chasing The Sun" went 3X Platinum, and was selected as the title track for 20th Century Fox's Ice Age 4: Continental Drift. The Wanted's newest single "I Found You" is currently at more than 8 million views since its VEVO premiere on Monday, October 15, and is available on iTunes now! With over 3 Million combined twitter followers, 91 million YouTube view, 2 million Facebook likes, and being the first boy band to hit #1 on the US Airplay Chart since The Backstreet Boys, The Wanted have artfully transcended the 'boy band' mold and brought a blast of much-needed fresh air to British pop music.
With over 14 years of creating music for some of the biggest musicians in music history, Swizz has contributed to the sale over 280 million records in just the US alone, working with the likes of Jay-Z, DMX, Beyonce, Kanye West, and Bono to name a few. In addition to several guest appearances and production credits, Swizz dropped his own album One Man Band Man in 2007. Swizz's latest single "Everyday Birthday" was released in November 2012. The single, which was produced by Swizz and Jukebox, also features Chris Brown and Ludacris and was accompanied by a video shot over a 3 day period in Cannes. In an ever-changing music industry, Swizz has deferred from the regular album release schedule and instead chosen release a series of what he has coined "Memorable Moments," singles featuring various other artists released with an accompanying by music videos and other visuals. Swizz has also lent his creative contributions to the likes of global brands such as Reebok (Vice President - Sports Style Marketing, Design, and Brand Music Development) and Lotus Cars (Vice President of Design & Global Marketing). Swizz is also the 1st producer-in residence at New York University's Clive Davis' Recorded School of Music and worked with Christian Louboutin on a ground-breaking music-collaboration, a cabaret show called Feu, which debuted in Paris this past March. Swizz's latest music venture is his new partnership with O&Media of Korea, in which his focus will be bridging the K-Pop music scene with Western music culture. Swizz also recently collaborated with The New York Knicks and created their 2013 theme song. When not creating music, Swizz is an avid art collector and painter whose goal is to inspire new artists around the world to express themselves and is working on opening his own international "new artist" art gallery. He is also a philanthropist who is involved in many charities and recently served as the first Global Ambassador for New York City's public hospitals system.
After a whirlwind year — capped by his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for F.A.M.E., Brown is already back on top with its sequel, Fortune. Released July 3, Brown's fifth studio album debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. In addition to earning his second stateside No. 1 debut, Brown's Fortune netted the singer/songwriter his first-ever No. 1 on both the U.K. and Netherlands Top Albums charts. And his global success doesn't end there. Brown posted career-best Top Albums chart debuts in Ireland and France (both No. 4), Japan (No. 5), Canada (No. 6), Switzerland (No. 10) and Germany (No. 13). Fortune also dominated as the No. 1 album on iTunes' U.S. Albums chart, with first-time chart-topping finishes in the U.K., Australia, Japan and New Zealand. It was also iTunes' No. 1 R&B/Soul Album in 22 countries. Powering Brown's global dominance are Fortune's two hit singles: the sultry "Strip" (No. 3 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs) and dance burner "Turn Up the Music" (No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100). Poised for similar chart ascent: the recently released "Don't Judge Me." But those cuts only begin to scratch the surface of Brown's Fortune telling. In the same manner he deftly maneuvers his intricate dance moves, the 24-year-old singer/songwriter/producer skillfully ups the edge factor on his fifth studio album without sacrificing his R&B/hip-hop roots. Continuing where F.A.M.E. leaves off, Brown plugs back into the EDM circuit with two more pulsating tracks - "Trumpet Lights" and "Bassline." Brown keeps core Team Breezy fans engaged with such R&B tracks as the intense love ballad "2012" and the deeply personal "Don't Judge Me." Helping to round out the 14-song standard edition are the illuminating "Mirage", mid-tempo romancer "Stuck on Stupid" and current chart-climber "Sweet Love." The deluxe edition features five more tracks, including "Free Run" and "Wait For You." Brown, who co-wrote and co-produced several tracks on Fortune, once again assembled an A-list team of producers. Among them: the Underdogs, Harmony, Free School, Brian Kennedy, Benny & Alle Benassi, Boi-1da, Polow da Don, The Runners and Fuego.
Recording artist, actor, philanthropist, restaurateur…just a few of the befitting titles for Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, who first gained worldwide acclaim more than 10 years ago with his debut album, Back for the First Time (2000). Ever since, his unrivaled lyrical prowess, dynamic performances and timeless hits including "Stand Up," "Get Back," "Number One Spot," "Money Maker" and "My Chick Bad," have solidified him as one of music's best entertainers and led to the sale of more than 20 million albums domestically. With the 2013 release of LUDAVERSAL, fans can look forward to more great music from Ludacris. In addition to immense commercial success, Ludacris' consistent output of stellar music has garnered the admiration of his peers, as well as numerous awards and honors.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
