Illustrated newspaper 'StormForge Times' with front page article announcing Kumina partnership
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 30, 2023 (Newswire.com) - StormForge, the leader in Kubernetes resource optimization, today announced their partnership with Kumina. The Netherlands-based company with over a decade of experience in providing mission-critical IT services will offer StormForge's Kubernetes resource optimization solution Optimize Live.
Together, Kumina and StormForge will provide Kubernetes users with an all-inclusive package comprising managed Kubernetes services and advanced optimization capabilities.
This partnership will help users enhance the performance and efficiency of their Kubernetes clusters, reducing costs and freeing up resources to focus on other aspects of their business. Consequently, Kumina's expertise in managing Kubernetes clusters with customized IT solutions will assist users in maximizing the performance of the optimization platform provided by StormForge.
Kumina's CEO Tim Stoop is enthusiastic about the benefits customers gain from integrating StormForge:
"I was impressed how Optimize Live has solved a whole class of customer issues with one solution, reliably and deterministically, while actually allowing resource usage to go down as a whole. We can help customers scale with confidence and cut costs with StormForge without sacrificing user experience. I am really excited about the potential that StormForge brings to the table."
StormForge Optimize Live applies machine learning to existing Kubernetes metrics to make real-time, actionable recommendations to resource settings for any deployment running in Kubernetes. By optimizing CPU and memory settings, customers can save cloud resources and money, reduce the business risk of poorly performing applications, and get their developers focused on innovating, not tuning their Kubernetes environment. StormForge's Solutions Architect Niels Roetert expresses enthusiasm regarding the benefits afforded by the solution:
"StormForge Optimize Live provides Pod resource right-sizing and can set optimal TargetUtilisation values for Kubernetes HPA to operate on. It does so continuously and without any human effort (configurable) at large scale. This results in resource and cost savings most of the time, when beneficial, resources are actually added to facilitate a better performing and more reliable application, which is a win-win for the application owner either way."
Kumina supports its customers by a fully managed Kubernetes solution that includes consulting, training and unlimited support hours. The company focuses on enhancing the infrastructure and cloud hosting capabilities of its customers in order to improve the performance, reliability, and security of their IT systems.

Now There’s an AI GPT Chatbot Without Censorship: Introducing FreedomGPT.com
ChatGPT vs. FreedomGPT
In the top image, ChatGPT refuses to read a website. In the bottom image, FreedomGPT reads the requested site.
AUSTIN, Texas, March 29, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Today, Age Of AI, LLC is releasing a public beta of FreedomGPT.com, a new AI Chatbot dedicated to neutrality, privacy, and customization. Launched as an alternative to OpenAI's ChatGPT, FreedomGPT aims to be censor-free and willing to answer questions without partiality. This technology will empower users to explore the breadth of conversational AI freely and securely while uncovering new use cases. Most importantly, FreedomGPT's work is being open-sourced so the developer community can help advance AI in a more iterative and transparent fashion.
FreedomGPT 1.0 is designed to facilitate open and unbiased communication, ensuring that users can explore a wide range of ideas and perspectives without limitations. Unlike other AI language models, FreedomGPT reduces the risk of censorship while promoting the positive exchange of thoughts and ideas in their purest form. Soon healthcare, law firms, and all other enterprises working with highly sensitive data will be able to benefit from a bespoke conversational AI running siloed on their private cloud or corporate intranet.
Key features of FreedomGPT include:
Private Censorship-Free AI: FreedomGPT currently leverages an open-source seven billion parameter large language model that's extremely fine-tuned to provide extraordinary response ability despite the relatively smaller model compared to OpenAI's ChatGPT. FreedomGPT does not add censorship after the fact; however, the LLM model itself is largely derived from a subset of the text on the internet and responses will therefore reflect this.
Local Execution: FreedomGPT can run on any computer, giving users the flexibility to access powerful AI technology without the need for internet connectivity or reliance on third-party servers. Users installing the local client will have near-instantaneous responses that don't leave their computer.
FreedomGPT's approach to AI language models has the potential to transform industries such as journalism, content creation, and customer service. Additionally, users of FreedomGPT can copy/paste web URLs so that it can interact with real-time information on the web unlike ChatGPT.
John Arrow, a General Partner of Age Of AI, LLC, states, "FreedomGPT is designed to champion the values of free speech and privacy in the realm of AI language models. We believe that by offering a censorship-free and secure AI experience, we are empowering individuals and organizations to harness the true potential of AI technology while also advancing AI safety through transparency."
Age Of AI is inviting journalists, researchers/developers, and AI enthusiasts to explore the capabilities of FreedomGPT's beta and share their thoughts. To learn more about FreedomGPT or try it out, please visit www.FreedomGPT.com or reach out to [email protected].

Phillip Thune Named CEO of Adthena in Preparation for Next Phase of Growth
Phillip Thune, CEO, Adthena
AUSTIN, Texas, March 29, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Adthena, the leader in AI-powered search intelligence, announced today that Phillip Thune has been appointed to the position of Chief Executive Officer. Following tremendous growth over the last decade, Thune takes over the role from Adthena's founder Ian O'Rourke, who will remain on the board of directors and provide support as needed to ensure a seamless hand-off.
Adthena is the search intelligence platform that provides competitive analysis, strategic insights, and a team of experts to help brands, marketers, and agencies dominate their competitive landscapes.
Thune has been involved in the tech startup and online search sectors for 20+ years and is a proven leader in the ad-tech and digital media space. Since 2010, Thune served as Global CEO of Textbroker, a German-based VC-backed SEO content writing company, where he grew revenue and headcount by more than 7X during his tenure. In another previous leadership role, Thune was president of FindWhat.com (later MIVA), an online advertising company offering pay-per-click search listings before Google Ads. There he helped grow the business from less than $1M in revenue to approximately $200M with a market cap of more than $700M.
"I believe that Adthena has the potential for tremendous growth. The success of many enterprise companies rises and falls based on how well they do in Google Ads, and Adthena is the essential tool that helps them figure out how to be successful in search and really fight that battle and win," said Thune.
"In addition to a unique technology offering, Adthena has a number of compelling assets that drew me to this role. The fact that, as founder, Ian O'Rourke will remain involved and engaged is one, and the company's strong culture and mission focussed on customer success is another. It means we can immediately focus on new opportunities, partnerships, and growth, and build on the momentum this already strong team has created."
O'Rourke founded Adthena in 2012 and under his leadership has grown the multi-award-winning company to $20M in annual recurring revenue with 120 employees and 300+ enterprise customers globally.
"The board and I have been planning for some time to transition the company from founder-led to professional-led; we're clearly at that stage in our lifecycle," said O'Rourke. "With his 20 years of search experience, relationships with current board members, and experience taking companies to the $50M mark and beyond, Phillip is an outstanding fit. This next phase of growth will ultimately mean greater success for our customers through even more investment in technological and product innovation."
