MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Preparation, as they say, is key to success, even when it comes to planning a holiday party. Whether businesses are looking to celebrate a successful quarter, nonprofits want to facilitate a holiday fundraiser or groups just want to eat, drink and be merry during the most festive time of year, the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay has both the space and a Holiday Party Package to make every event an unforgettable one. And the time to plan it is now.
Memorable events begin with distinctive spaces, and when it comes to ballrooms in Miami, this property holds the upper hand. Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay is completing a renovation of their banquet space to be completed by October 10th, just in time for the holiday season! The hotel boast 23 function rooms with an impressive 20,000 square feet of space, many of those rooms feature waterfront views. The Bayview Ballroom, for example, can accommodate up to 200 people with views of the marina, and the Hibiscus Island room overlooks Biscayne Bay. This hotel near the Port of Miami even offers outdoor event spaces like the Marina Terrace and Bayfront Terrace.
Unique among hotels near Wynwood Miami, the property offers guests a convenient location, spectacular ambience (courtesy of those ocean views) and a distinctive, modern aesthetic. The only thing that could improve upon this magical alchemy is the catering. And, once again, this hotel delivers. Thanks to its 2014 Holiday Party Package, the hotel can transform any of its enviable spaces into a seasonal wonderland for lunch or dinner.
Plated and buffet lunch options include a three-hour event, soft drinks and iced tea and white tablecloths accented by holiday-hued napkins, not to mention mouthwatering menu choices. Seafood bisque, Key West mahi mahi and Florida citrus-and-sundried-strawberry salad are just a few of the regionally-inspired options available at just $40 (plated) and $45 (buffet) per person.
Few Miami cruise-port hotels can rival this property's panache when presenting more formal affairs like a cocktail reception or dinner. And the Holiday Party Package's choices promise value and good taste in every sense. A two-hour cocktail reception, for example, includes a beer and wine bar, three passed hors d'oeuvres and two reception stations with options like vegetable spring rolls, coconut shrimp, mini-chicken cordon bleu and mini-beef Wellington. A four-hour plated dinner event, however, steals the show. In addition to an open bar and butler-passed hors d'oeuvres, the package includes a three-course dinner. Choices range from Tuscan chicken breast ($95 per person), to grilled sirloin ($98 per person), to surf and turf ($115 per person) and beyond.
A buffet dinner option for $120 per person and a variety of upgrades with regard to the bar and décor are available for guests who enjoy the art of customization. But the Holiday Party Package simplifies many of the logistics by waiving setup fees and including features like a dance floor, candles for the table and even a Christmas tree. Preparation, in other words, pays off with abundant holiday cheer at this bayside destination.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake.

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
