Hotels in Brunswick, ME Salute a Green Leader in Their Midst

TripAdvisor Recognizes the Fairfield Inn & Suites Brunswick Freeport as a GreenPartner in Hospitality

BRUNSWICK, ME -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- Green, some might argue, is the new black. Whether it's a local coffee shop opting to use cups made from corn, or an authoritative federal report outlining the ramifications of climate change, it seems everyone is trying on the mossy hue one way or another. And that includes Brunswick Airport hotels. Recently announcing its GreenPartner status with TripAdvisor's GreenLeaders program, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Brunswick Freeport is becoming a green giant among local hotels and an attractive option among eco-conscious travelers.

TripAdvisor's GreenLeaders program is based upon a set of environmental standards developed by a leading environmental consulting firm in conjunction with other expert partners. These standards are then used to assess a given property's eligibility to participate in the program and, if accepted, determine its GreenLeader level. (Levels range from GreenPartner, to Bronze-, Silver-, Gold- and Platinum-level GreenLeaders.)

With its newly awarded GreenPartner status, the Fairfield Inn & Suites Brunswick Freeport once again stands out among other hotels in Freeport, ME. Here, eco-minded guests will look on admiringly at landscaped beds where weeds have been manually removed rather than sprayed out of existence. They will breathe a little easier in rooms outfitted with energy-efficient light bulbs. They will sleep soundly in linens destined to eventually be donated to a Rwandan orphanage program. And while their guests relax, the hotel staff can be found hard at work implementing their own recycling program that involves diligently sorting and recycling paper, glass, cardboard, plastic and metal daily as well as recycling old closet doors for lumber.

Of course, its GreenPartner status is just one of many reasons why travelers might choose this Brunswick, ME accommodation. Other reasons range from its host of gracious features, to its convenient location near General Dynamics/Bath Iron Works, Bowdoin College and L.L. Bean. Complimentary hot breakfasts, for example, get visitors off to a good start each morning, while spacious suites equipped with mini-refrigerators and free, high-speed Internet access make the hotel ideal for travelers arriving in Brunswick, Maine on extended stays.

With a certifiable commitment to reducing its carbon footprint, and a range of impressive amenities available for guests, this property unites the best of sustainability and service. After all, it may not be easy being green, but it certainly is attractive.

Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”
Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists looked at the tools and environments that are being put to use in IoT deployments, as well as the team skills a modern enterprise IT shop needs to keep things running, get a handle on all this data, and deliver...

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.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
