The Iconic JW Marriott Marquis Hotel in Dubai Awarded Guinness World Record

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES -- (Marketwire) -- 12/16/12 -- Guinness World Records has officially recognised the 5 Star JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai as the world's tallest hotel.

At a height of 355 metres from ground level to the top of its mast, the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai is only 26 metres short of the Empire State Building in New York. Spread across two iconic 77-floor twin towers, each with 804 rooms and an enticing array of 14 restaurants, bars and lounges, the hotel is set to be one of the region's most desirable destinations. It is also Dubai's first world-class convention and business destination hotel, filling a long identified gap in the market where groups, meetings and conventions of up to 1,000 people can meet, sleep and dine under one roof, in one location.

Rupprecht Queitsch, General Manager of this 5 star hotel in Dubai, was joined by Ashok Korgaonkar, the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai's leading Architect, and Managing Director of Archgroup Consultants to receive the official Guinness World Record certificate. "We are excited and delighted to be officially recognised as the world's tallest hotel. Dubai is a city of superlatives and the JW Marriott Marquis is an outstanding addition its iconic skyline. This Guinness World Record will help us to put Dubai on the global business destination map," commented Rupprecht.

Dubai's new hotel, the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai, opened its first tower to guests last month, with 6 of its final nine restaurants now operating. The hotel will have all nine restaurants, five bars and lounges, as well as the sublime Saray Spa and Health Club, open by February 2013, with the Grand Opening scheduled to take place in February, 2013. Its second tower is expected to open by late 2014.

When fully open, the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai will cater to a myriad of tastes, while simultaneously providing cutting edge business facilities and more than 8,000 square metres of indoor and outdoor event space which includes 2 ballrooms, which are exceptional for wedding receptions in Dubai. In addition, the hotel will board a number of innovative features incorporating the latest technology, with the aim of providing a unique environment for guests that reflects its positioning as an iconic and pioneering business hotel. Located in the heart of Business Bay, minutes from Dubai World Trade Centre, the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre and close to Dubai International Airport, the JW Marriott Marquis resides in a prime location and is iconic in the Business Bay skyline.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
