Raleigh, North Carolina Hotels Support Frankie Lemmon Center Fundraiser

Triangle Wine Experience, February 6-8, to Benefit Kids With Special Needs

RALEIGH, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 02/07/14 -- What began as one couple's mission to help children with special needs, including their own, has grown into the Frankie Lemmon School & Developmental Center, a nonprofit pre-school and kindergarten for children with special needs. The only special education kindergarten in the area, the school relies on donations and sponsors to be able to offer its resources free of charge, and three hotels in Raleigh, NC are doing their part help.

Each February, the Triangle Wine Experience brings wine enthusiasts together to raise money for the Frankie Lemmon Foundation, the school's primary funding source, with a weekend of wine-related events. This year, the Residence Inn, Fairfield Inn & Suites and Courtyard Raleigh Crabtree Valley have all pitched in by donating rooms at their hotels near NCSU for visiting winemakers, distributors and entertainment.

This year's event, February 6th through the 8th, features numerous events to benefit the foundation. On the first night of the Triangle Wine Experience, Winery Dinners pair the area's best restaurants, such as the award winning Midtown Grille, and chefs with the world's finest wines. The following morning, visitors have the chance to tour the school and meet some of the children during a special breakfast program. That evening, guests can Sip, Shop & Sign as wine merchants offer their bottles for tasting and purchase. To close out the 3-day event, a Grand Gala & Auction will feature entertainment and both silent and live auctions.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics.

In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications?
