SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Airbnb, the world's leading community driven hospitality company today announced it is teaming up with Capitol Records and Cashmere Agency during the 2014 SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX.

Here, SXSW goers can enjoy an array of activities day and night including spa treatments, yoga, live music courtesy of emerging acts ranging from bluegrass to rock to hip hop, and specialty cooking events.  The centerpieces will be three kitHAUS pop-ups curated by a trio of music artists:  entertainment superstar Snoop Dogg, acclaimed LA-based indie-pop duo Capital Cities and 26-year-old soul sensation Allen Stone.  Each artist will collaborate with designer Emily Henderson on the design of their pop-up to best convey their personal styles within the pop-up.  Additionally, each of them will contribute to the programming at each pop-up, from specially selected musical performances to exclusive food tastings.

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.
In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.'
