TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - April 14, 2014) - Royalton Luxury Resorts, exclusively offered by Sunwing, is welcoming lovable children's characters to Royalton Punta Cana Resort & Casino and Royalton White Sands Montego Bay. Kids can go on a knightly adventure with the brave and heroic Mike the Knight™, or look for treasures with everyone's favourite bunny siblings, Max & Ruby.

Part of Sunwing's exclusive Luxury Collection, these spectacular resorts offer Royalton's cutting-edge All-In Luxury™ concept, which combines top-quality standards, upscale features, and tremendous hospitality.

Featuring a large on-site water park and splash pad for kids of all ages, Royalton Punta Cana and Royalton White Sands, which is also a SplashWorld Resort, are great options for families. Also available at both properties is The Clubhouse, a supervised kids club for ages 2-12 (4-12 at Punta Cana), which offers innovative activities and games, as well as The Hang Out, a lounge where teens can play video games, ping pong, and more.

Max & Ruby is a preschool animated series from Corus Entertainment's Nelvana that follows the adventures of bunny siblings, Max and his older sister, Ruby, based on the bestselling books by internationally acclaimed children's author and illustrator Rosemary Wells. In each story Max wants one thing, Ruby wants another, and even though they love each other, they have very different ideas on just about everything.

With his rallying cry, 'Be a knight, do it right!' Mike the Knight brings the excitement and enchantment of medieval times into the life of the modern preschooler. Set in the medieval land of Glendragon, the popular Mike the Knight series from Nelvana and HIT Entertainment takes viewers into a rich, CG-animated world of wizards, castles, missions, dragons and trolls.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
