"With the overwhelming success of our Orlando program and feedback received from our customers and travel agent partners, we are pleased to offer this popular destination to more Canadian travellers this winter," says Andrew Dawson, Chief Operating Officer of Sunwing Travel Group. "Orlando is an important part of our vacation offering because it truly does have something for everybody -- families, honeymooners, singles and couples -- and it fits into every budget."

"Canada is our second largest international market and the decision by Sunwing to expand its Canadian service is exceptional news for our community," says Phil Brown, Executive Director of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. "Not only will Sunwing add service to its existing gateways, it is also starting service from two new markets that have never had access to the United States, Gander and Deer Lake."

Orlando is home to Walt Disney World®, Universal Studios Florida®, SeaWorld®, LEGOLAND®, and so many more attractions -- you will keep the kids busy and amused all week. The destination also features great shopping and outlet malls, which is considered the second largest attraction in the area, while also offering every imaginable type of cuisine, some of the best golf courses, activities for all ages and tremendous value.

Sunwing features an infinite variety of accommodation from budget hotels to deluxe properties, including a wonderful selection of hotels within and near major theme parks. Vacation packages to Orlando include roundtrip airfare onboard Sunwing Airlines, hotel accommodation, and a mid-sized car rental to get around. Sunwing's Orlando Holiday Homes are quickly growing in popularity among families, as each holiday home features three to seven bedrooms and a private pool.

Sunwing also sells tickets to all major attractions in conjunction with its packages. Customers can book their tickets and passes ahead of time, so that when they step off their flight and pick up their car, they can get started right away enjoying all Orlando has to offer.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
