HARRISBURG, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- Working to serve the community is one of the most fulfilling ways for a hotel's staff to show its commitment to its neighbors -- from sponsoring local youth sports to offering accommodations during times of need. So when the opportunity arose to help the Hershey, PA Ronald McDonald house, the staff of the TownePlace Suites Harrisburg Hershey stepped up.
Led by Guest Services Supervisor Brittany Wagner, a group from the TownePlace Suites served dinner to a dozen families at Ronald McDonald House on February 10, 2013, and donated extra food for additional guests, as well as TownePlace Suite grocery bags. Wagner also led food preparation and was joined by General Manager Bobbi Carey, Assistant General Manager Marcia Eckhart, Director of Sales Jacquelyn Rhodes, and Guest Services Agent Erin Gibson.
The Ronald McDonald House gives families a "home-away-from-home" so they can stay near their hospitalized child at little or no cost. Ronald McDonald Houses from coast to coast are built on the simple idea that "...nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child -- not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night to rest."

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
