Matilda Package Celebrates Times Square Hotel's Resident Feline Friend

Enjoy Cocktails, Breakfast & More at The Algonquin Hotel Times Square, Autograph Collection(R)

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 -- Cat lover or not, it's hard to deny the sweet story behind the feline resident tradition at The Algonquin Hotel Times Square, Autograph Collection®. In the 1930s, a stray cat wandered into this luxury hotel in New York City in search of food and shelter, and then-owner Frank Case's decision to take in the cat became more than just an act of kindness; it became a tradition.

Since then, the Times Square hotel has hosted a number of feline residents, and today guests will find Matilda greeting them throughout their stay. To celebrate the spirit of the hotel's giving nature, guests are treated to a very special stay with the Matilda Package, available until December 31, 2013, and offering a number of perks that are sure to make any traveler purr.

With this Times Square hotel deal, guests will receive a welcome letter from Matilda herself, two complimentary cocktails per night, complimentary breakfast for two guests per night, a replica plush of Matilda and a copy of Sandy Robins' Fabulous Felines: Health and Beauty Secrets for the Pampered Cat.

Matilda isn't any ordinary housecat; she gets weekly mail from friends around the globe, she celebrated her 2002 birthday with 150 of her closest friends, and when her collar was stolen, the entire city was talking about the "Algonquin Cat-Burglary." She also has her own email address, so guests of all ages can contact her before or after their stay at [email protected].

The Matilda Package is available seven nights a week, and a two-night minimum stay is required. Rates range between $404 and $904 a night and are offered in queen, deluxe queen, king and suite accommodations. To book, visit the website of this hotel near Restaurant Row in New York, or call 1-800-228-9290 in the US; be sure to enter/ask for promotional code ZJL.

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.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

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.
