NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 08/07/14 -- When people picture New York, Times Square is usually the first image to come to mind. Bright lights, pulsating streets and the city's top attractions -- Times Square has it all. And for those who want to immerse themselves in the glitz and glamor of the area's many highlights, the New York Marriott Marquis offers both the service and the amenities to do its surroundings justice.
This Times Square hotel introduces the vibrant neighborhood to its guests in a number of breathtaking ways. Whether guests are drinking in a bird's-eye view of the city from New York's only revolving restaurant and lounge, The View, or stepping through the hotel's front doors into the fray, the hotel puts visitors in the middle of the excitement.
The best part about Times Square is that the excitement extends to everyone. Museums abound and cater to a range of interests, from the International Center of Photography, to The Museum of Modern Art. More than 15 eateries on Restaurant Row tempt palates with exotic flavors hailing from around the world. Or travelers can choose from a variety of other local options that include modern American cuisine, Italian fare, Cuban delicacies and cocktails that would make any Prohibition-era buff proud.
But one of the biggest attractions is undoubtedly the theater. And New York hotels in Times Square enjoy unrivaled access to the world's best performances on Broadway, as well as lesser-known Off-Broadway gems. The legendary TKTS booth is even located in Times Square for discounted tickets.
Few hotels in Manhattan, New York, however, can match this property's access to other major attractions. Families appreciate being steps away from destinations like Discovery Times Square (featuring limited-run, hand-on exhibitions), Hershey's Chocolate World Times Square, M&M's World and Madame Tussauds New York. Rockefeller Center -- home to the legendary skating rink and NBC Studios -- is another nearby landmark not to miss, as is the Empire State Building and Fifth Avenue shopping.
With so much to see and do, the convenient location and well-appointed accommodations of the New York Marriott Marquis make the hotel a welcome retreat at the end of the day. The hotel features some of the largest rooms in Times Square with spectacular views, perfect for family or work trips. Four dining options, including Starbucks, often combine culinary creativity with spectacular views, while the 4,000-square-foot Marquis Fitness Center is the largest hotel gym in New York that's exclusively for guests' use. And when it's time to tuck in for the night, luxury bedding and spa-inspired bath amenities make it easy to fall asleep -- even if the rest of the city never does.

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame?

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT's direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
