Archer Travel Celebrates 60+ Years in Travel Business

Archer Travel, founded in 1952, is celebrating 60 years of business in 2012.

MONTROSE, Calif., Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The executive leadership of Archer Travel, a premier travel agency in Montrose, California, is pleased to announce that now in 2012, the company is celebrating its 60th anniversary. Archer Travel was founded in 1952 by Cliff and Lola Archer in the lobby of the Greyhound Bus Terminal in Glendale, California. The two entrepreneurs were able to launch their business into the realm of success by providing genuine help, exclusive information, and unparalleled customer service.

"We're thrilled to see how many positive changes Archer Travel has undergone in the past sixty years," said a company spokesperson. "When Cliff and Lola founded Archer Travel, the aim was to provide great service to budget-conscious consumers. The Archers always kept the focus on delivering exceptional recommendations to people traveling with a set budget, and that's what Archer Travel is still about today."

Though Archer Travel began in a Greyhound Bus Station, the travel service has expanded to help facilitate vacations as far away as Hawaii and Africa. Popular vacations offered by Archer Travel include the "Great Safaris" package in Africa, the "Hawaii Vacations" package, and the "Sea Dreams" package in the British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and elsewhere in the Caribbean.

Archer Travel has expanded to include services that go beyond traditional travel agency offerings. Features like Honeymoon Financing and Sports Travel have helped Archer Travel's product offerings stand out from the crowd.

"Customers love Archer Travel," commented a company spokesperson, "because they know that we offer more than just standard travel packages. We're not selling cookie cutter vacations over and over. With Archer Travel, you're guaranteed to have the trip of your life, at a price so good, you'll consider doing it again in a few years."

With the rise of free DIY trip-planning websites, many consumers are questioning the status of brick-and-mortar travel agencies. "It's a question we get all the time," remarked a spokesperson for Archer Travel. "We simply tell customers that when you provide a great service like we do, you simply can't become obsolete. We've been in the business for 60 years – that's a lot longer than any website. We have the connections, pricing models, and experience to get better deals for travelers than anything that can be found online."

Archer Travel welcomes questions and comments about its 60 years in business. Contact information for the Montrose, California travel agency can be found below.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand.

Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality.
Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
