The Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel Combines Savvy Service With Top Technology

TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 02/07/14 -- The way people do business is forever changing. From the typewriters of yore to the video-conferencing of today, communication methods evolve as fast as business deals. Believing that meetings should be equally innovative, the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre Hotel has launched a new promotion to offer meeting planners the best event space in Toronto, Marriott's cutting-edge Meeting Services App and, to tie it all together, a complimentary iPad Mini.

Groups booking 75 cumulative rooms on specific "need dates" at this conference hotel in Toronto can take advantage of the new meetings promotion and get a glimpse of how meetings will be conducted in the future. One giant leap into that future is Marriott's brand-new Meeting Services App. Any web-enabled device -- including the complimentary iPad Mini that eligible meeting organizers will receive -- can access the app, which lets meeting planners make real-time requests. So it's more coffee, a thermostat adjustment or almost anything else, the planner can send a quick text and have the issue resolved without ever leaving the room.

The technology is just one advantage, however, to this downtown Toronto event venue. With 17 meeting rooms and 18,000 square feet of pillar-free function space, the hotel is ideal for groups of all sizes and needs. The Grand Ballroom, for example, offers 7,952 square feet of open, fresh space hemmed in by generous 15-foot ceilings. Such a space, which can welcome up to 850 people in theater-style seating, feels elegant while remaining highly functional. There is even a more private area on the second floor with four smaller, more intimate meetings rooms, nestled away from the hustle and bustle. Three of the meeting rooms, even have beautiful views of the historic Church of the Holy Trinity from their floor to ceiling window which ensures creative juices continue to flow during a long day of meetings. Whichever room a group occupies, however, the hotel's high-tech features, exceptional catering and superior service promise to make the meeting nothing short of perfect.

Guests of this luxury hotel in Toronto can also look forward to a comfortable stay after working hours. Located next to the Eaton Centre and close by the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the hotel puts guests within walking distance of the theatre, entertainment and financial districts for an experience that sublimely merges business with pleasure.

Planners are encouraged to learn more about the meetings promotion, which is available only during select dates, by visiting http://ipadpromotion.marriott.com/.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
