ANNAPOLIS, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 04/11/14 -- It might be tempting to plan another bland summer escape if it weren't for the SpringHill Suites Annapolis. Sure, families and couples could retreat to their tried-and-true destinations, but then they'd miss out on experiencing the Annapolis accommodations that have guests and industry experts alike buzzing with excitement. (Not to mention the most beautiful time of year to visit the Mid-Atlantic city.) From its newly renovated suites and public spaces to its smart design (ahem, solar panels), this is one hotel that gets vacations started off right.
And plenty of people know it. For seven years, the hotel has received awards for its outstanding service, and last year was no exception. At the 2013 Marriott International Performance Awards, the property was recognized with the Gold Award, which is bestowed only upon hotels that rank within the top 10 percent of their brand's Overall Guest Service Satisfaction (GSS) scores. That means travelers exploring hotels in Annapolis, MD will find few that can match the track record for service of this top property.
Of course, the value-added amenities don't hurt either. This Annapolis hotel is equipped with many appealing features like an indoor pool, complimentary hot breakfasts and free high-speed Internet access throughout the property.
The 120 suites, meanwhile, redefine what it means to travel well. Offering some of the most attractive and functional hotel rooms in Annapolis, the property outfits its suites with mini-refrigerators, sinks, microwaves and iHome alarm clocks.
It's no wonder, then, that winning the Gold Award for seven years hasn't been the hotel's only achievement. TripAdvisor also recognized the property with its coveted Award of Excellence in 2013 for consistently ranking within the top 10 percent of all hospitality businesses in the world. Like the Gold Award, this honor reflects the opinions of the judges who matter most: real-life travelers.
As winter gradually gives way to spring and summer, this hotel is ideally positioned to afford some unforgettable holidays. Whether families arrive for the historical attractions and Six Flags amusement park, or couples book a stay to see the sights of nearby Washington, D.C. and the numerous festivals and events planned throughout the balmy months, there's only one choice for a reliably superior stay. Summer is about to get fun again.

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.

Most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes a lot of work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost ...
