1. You have corned beef dishes coming out of your pores.
Seriously, how many deliciously different ways can these restaurants serve this stuff? The variety is astounding. Not to mention Corned Beef Steamships at the carving stations at MORE The Buffet at Luxor and Excalibur Buffet.

2. Everything is green. Especially the beer.
But really... the Signature at MGM Grand will serve up green beer in Delights and The Lounge. For an especially green experience, New York-New York is dying the famous fountain green in honor of the holiday and Crossroads at House of Blues at Mandalay Bay is having a "Slainte" party with drink specials and live entertainment.  

3. You use the phrase "Kiss Me, I'm Irish" to hook a date or order a shake.   
Don't believe us? Say it at BLT Burger at The Mirage. You'll see.

4. You cheer on a dashingly handsome medieval Irish knight as he duels to the death in the name of the Emerald Isle.
Does it honestly get any cooler than that? But really, the knights of Tournament of Kings at Excalibur are seriously drool-worthy.

5. You eat sushi and still feel the Luck of the Irish.
Not into corned beef? Lucky for your taste buds, Rice & Company at Luxor makes a specialty "Lucky Roll." Taste the luck. Then take it with you to the tables and win that pot o' gold.

6. Guinness! So. Much. Guinness.
Nine Fine Irishmen at New York-New York brings it in by the truckload for the three-day Celtic Feis festival Mar. 15 – 17. Did somebody say Guinness Bombs?

7. Speaking of Guinness...
Have you ever tried it in a milkshake? Better yet, a CHOCOLATE milk shake? We didn't think so. TAP at MGM Grand will enlighten you. Go get your milkshake you grown-up, you.

8. You eat something called Bangers.
No, not like Miley Cyrus' Bangerz, but still, it's British slang for sausages. The Buffet at Monte Carlo serves up Bangers and Mashed Potatoes. Um...yes, please.

9. You become the King (or Queen) of Good Times.
Not that we ever doubted that you totally rule the monarchy of good times. But on St. Patty's you can order the ginger beer and Jameson drink, King of Good Times, at Ri Ra at Mandalay Bay to prove your awesomeness to all the land.

10. Two words. Reuben sandwich.
And not your typical Reuben. Only the best, cheesiest, corned beefiest Reuben. Backstage Deli at Luxor has your back.

11. You see Leprechauns of all shapes and sizes joyously enjoying the Las Vegas Strip.
Okay, so they might not be REAL leprechauns. But they'll definitely be dressed like it. And they'll probably be full of corned beef and green beer just like you, which are the best kinds of leprechauns anyway, right?

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
