VANCOUVER, BC -- (Marketwired) -- 01/30/14 -- For couples planning their wedding in the coming year, the issues vying for consideration can feel overwhelming. Between the menu, the guest list, the flowers and a lengthy to-do list, planning (not to mention paying for) a honeymoon can seem about as feasible as uninviting your prospective in-laws. But at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel, couples receive the best gift of all when they book their reception: Marriott Rewards points that can be applied towards the honeymoon of their dreams.
Premier among Vancouver, BC waterfront hotels, this property has a reputation for luxury and superior service. (Just look at its CAA/AAA Four Diamond status.) And its latest promotion continues that legacy.
Couples who take advantage of this great deal will enjoy bonus Marriott Rewards points that are awarded based on the food-and-beverage costs of their receptions. Those who spend $15,000, for example, will earn 150,000 points. Others who spend $20,000 will earn 200,000 points, and those who spend $25,000 or more will receive 250,000 points.
The ways couples can spend their points are as diverse as the receptions they host. For starters, newlyweds can book accommodations at one of the more than 3,800 Marriott-branded hotels around the world, including (of course) this downtown Vancouver waterfront hotel. They can also apply them to perks like spa services, resort activities or golf or ski packages, as well as fine dining.
A free honeymoon isn't the only advantage to booking a reception at this wedding venue in downtown Vancouver. The spaces range from traditional rooms where floor-to-ceiling windows let in natural light, to outdoor patios that feel original and fresh, to sweeping ballrooms that can accommodate up to 600 people at a time. Tempting catering options and a professional staff experienced with ceremonies of all sizes and cultural backgrounds, including Indian weddings, make for a seamless, inspired event.
Couples and their guests can continue to enjoy the property even after the wedding is over. Boasting an award-winning restaurant and close proximity to the city's best shopping and attractions, the hotel encourages visitors to extend their vacation. And with some of Vancouver's most luxurious hotel suites, which come with all the benefits of the Concierge Level, this is one property where travellers feel indulged and where newlyweds are properly celebrated.
To secure the promotion, couples must book their wedding reception by December 31, 2014 and hold it by December 31, 2015. To learn more about the details, couples may visit www.MarriottCanadaWeddings.com and www.MarriottCanadaMariage.ca.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...
