Hotel Near Vancouver Airport Revamps Meetings With Free iPads and a New App

Service and Technology Unite in One State-of-the-Art Promotion at the Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel

RICHMOND, BC -- (Marketwired) -- 01/10/14 -- As with anything work-related, incentives go a long way toward improving productivity. Whether it's a vacation for top performers, or a salary bonus for a job well done, there are many ways to reward the select few. Rewarding everyone, however, is not just egalitarian, it's also good business. At least that's the thinking behind the new meetings promotion at the Vancouver Airport Marriott Hotel. With this deal, not only do meeting planners receive a complimentary iPad Mini, they also enjoy access to the groundbreaking new Marriott Meeting Services App, which ensures a superior meeting experience for every last delegate involved.

As one of the most sophisticated luxury airport hotels in Vancouver, this property is accustomed to welcoming conferences to its seven spacious meeting rooms, including its 4,500-sq.-ft., barrier-free ballroom. Intimate board meetings and expansive conferences alike encounter practical amenities and experienced staff. But the property's latest meetings promotion is the most tempting among available hotel deals in Richmond, British Columbia, because it revolutionizes the way business is done.

Marriott's brand-new Meeting Services App is a direct response to the changing face of business today. Available via any web-enabled device, it allows meeting planners to make requests -- for more coffee, a thermostat change, A/V assistance and more -- in real time with a dedicated meeting-services professional. The requests can then be handled immediately and without the planner ever having to leave her chair, much less the room.

For planners who are eager to try out this new app and experience some of the most elegant meeting rooms near the Vancouver airport, this latest promotion just makes good business sense. Meeting planners who book 75 cumulative rooms (or more) during select dates until April 30, 2014, are eligible to receive a complimentary iPad Mini. For more information on this promotion, visit: www.iPadPromotion.Marriott.com.

In addition to the iPad Mini and new app, groups will appreciate staying at a property that stands out among other YVR airport hotels for its plush accommodations, American Grille restaurant, heated outdoor pool and fitness centre. After all, when everyone wins, business can only benefit.

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...
