Travelers Make Exciting End-of-Summer Escapes at the Charlotte Marriott SouthPark

Hotel in Charlotte, NC Near Carowinds Lets Families Give Summer an Unforgettable Send-Off

CHARLOTTE, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- Summer is a time for lazy days and long vacations. But for those who either never got around to relaxing, or who wish it would last just a little bit longer, the Charlotte Marriott SouthPark is offering the chance to end the season on a high note. Its Family Movie Night Package is the perfect incentive to plan a weekend getaway, while its location near a bevy of family-friendly attractions promises to banish any vestige of the summer doldrums.

One of the biggest draws for visitors to this Carowinds Park hotel is, of course, the Carowinds amusement park. Home to thrill rides like the Southeast's tallest, fastest and longest rollercoaster (the Intimidator), Carowinds also boasts live entertainment, family rides, an interactive dinosaur exhibit and a 20-acre water park where two new waterslides added an extra 600 feet of splash-tastic adventure this summer.

But the amusement park isn't the only way for travelers to soak up the remaining days of summer. As one of the premier hotels near the SouthPark mall in Charlotte, this property is ideal for guests looking to stock up on back-to-school essentials or simply indulge in a little retail therapy at Burberry, Hermes, Neiman-Marcus and the like. And with golf, restaurants and the Charlotte Nature Museum (featuring an attractive butterfly pavilion) all nearby as well, guests will find plenty to see and do each day.

And the evenings, for those booking the Family Movie Night Package, can be just as exciting. After a day out and about, families can return to their deluxe rooms to relax together over a large pizza, popcorn, soda and an in-room movie. Complimentary continental breakfast for two at the hotel restaurant tops off what is undoubtedly the most family-friendly option among Charlotte getaway packages.

With summer's warm temperatures and relaxed pace drawing to a close, there's never been a better time to explore this SouthPark hotel in Charlotte, NC. Whether it's a family's first or final vacation of the season, it's bound to be the highlight of the year.

Guests can book the Family Movie Night Package, which is available Thursday through Sunday until December 26, 2014, by using the promotional code FM when making reservations.

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...
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.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...
With the introduction of IoT and Smart Living in every aspect of our lives, one question has become relevant: What are the security implications? To answer this, first we have to look and explore the security models of the technologies that IoT is founded upon. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nevi Kaja, a Research Engineer at Ford Motor Company, discussed some of the security challenges of the IoT infrastructure and related how these aspects impact Smart Living. The material was delivered interac...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble. Why? Because your data center will not keep up with frenetic pace AWS, Microsoft and Google are rolling out new capabilities. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
"We are a monitoring company. We work with Salesforce, BBC, and quite a few other big logos. We basically provide monitoring for them, structure for their cloud services and we fit into the DevOps world" explained David Gildeh, Co-founder and CEO of Outlyer, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions.

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...
