BEIJING, Feb. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- European luxury hotel company Kempinski's largest property in China will be unveiled in May 2014. The development, set on 14-square-kilometre grounds in Yanqi Lake includes 595 guestrooms and suites -- 306 rooms at Yanqi Lake Kempinski Hotel Beijing on the mainland, and 111 rooms at the State Guest House and 178 rooms spread across 12 Boutique Hotels on a private island.
14,069-square-metres of meeting space, including an 8,277-square-metre Conference Centre, and outdoor event space offer meeting planners a new MICE destination in Beijing.
With 14 food and beverage establishments, guests can sample cuisines from Chinese to authentic European recipes, imported cheeses, cold cuts, sausages, freshly-baked breads, wine and cigars.
Leisure facilities include marina, 18-hole golf course, Kempinski The Spa, fitness facilities, and a Kid's Club. Guests seeking outdoor activities will enjoy the many options.
Wedding couples will value the resort's beauty with its surroundings embraced by views of the Mutianyu Great Wall, Yanshan Mountain, natural gardens and tranquil waters, offering a romantic and nostalgic setting for a majestic wedding.
'Witness the unique beauty created by world-renowned designers - DiLeonardo, Wilson Associates, Rockwellgroup and Hirsch Bedner Associates, whose ecological values were essential to choosing materials and construction techniques,' says general manager Brice Pean. 'Electricity is hydroelectrically generated and eco-friendly products are used throughout our resort.'
Yanqi Lake Kempinski Hotel Beijing embodies the shape of the rising sun whilst the State Guest House is designed with a combination of natural elements and exudes the richness of diverse world culture gathering in one harmonious place. The 12 Boutique Hotels blend contemporary and traditional design, such as Chinese Imperial Gardens of Beijing and 'Siheyuan' – a traditional courtyard combined with modern elements.
Be it dining with loved ones, entertaining business associates, hosting a meeting or staging a global summit, celebrating a wedding, or a weekend break, the facilities offer guests a surprising change from their traditional experience at a resort hotel.
'On 22 February, we will begin our mass recruitment of over 700 people,' added Pean. 'Our commitment to our staff is to equip them with the skills they need to reflect Kempinski's Remarkable European Flair.'
The development is 45-kilometres north of Beijing Capital International airport, 60-kilometres north of Beijing's city centre and 25-kilometres from Mutianyu Great Wall.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...

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. ...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
