DERBY, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- It's hard to beat waking up to 300 acres of unspoilt English parkland, especially when one does so from the elegantly modern guest rooms of a building dating back to the 13th century. But Breadsall Priory Marriott Hotel & Country Club has nonetheless found a way to make its guests' (coffee) cups runneth over with joy. On 21 August 2014, the hotel will begin pouring Starbucks coffee within its hallowed walls and, in the process, it will once again make history.
Complementing the hotel's one-of-a-kind Derby accommodation, Starbucks coffee will appear as part of the upgraded package in the Priory King Room, Superior Room and suites. Guests staying elsewhere on property don't have to go far to get their morning fix, either. The hotel's Tempo Restaurant & Bar will serve the beloved brew as well.
The arrival of Starbucks coffee is just one more way Breadsall Priory Marriott Hotel & Country Club has made its historic charm both relevant and appealing to modern travellers. While its original sandstone walls call to mind a bygone era, its luxury bedding and high-speed Internet access speak to contemporary comforts. Original architecture in the Priory Rooms is enhanced by a cheerful palette of rich wood, buttery yellows and hunter green. And the hotel's Derby meeting rooms -- now prepared to energise guests with the world's favourite coffee -- accommodate diverse groups with intimate period rooms, airy spaces overlooking the garden and an expansive conference room with views of the Championship Priory Course.
Breadsall Priory has long enjoyed a distinguished reputation among Derbyshire historic hotels. Its two golf courses, spa and unparalleled pedigree attract visitors and groups alike. Now, by proudly serving Starbucks on property, it's adding one more dimension to the unforgettable experience that has enthralled visitors for centuries.
About the Breadsall Priory Marriott Hotel & Country Club
Seated on 300 acres of stunning English parkland, the Breadsall Priory Marriott Hotel & Country Club may have begun in 1260 under austere circumstances, but today it embraces a decidedly luxurious approach to travel. Guests can practice their swing on the Breadsall Priory Country Club's two 18-hole courses, unwind with a massage or facial at the Priory Retreat spa, take a dip in the indoor pool or work out at the Leisure Club Fitness Center and still not exhaust the hotel's wide range of amenities. Dining, for example, includes the award-winning Priory Restaurant, whose English cuisine and wine list have earned it a place among Derby's best fine-dining venues, and the casual, recently renovated Tempo Restaurant & Bar. The 112 guest rooms delight with original Priory architecture in the main hall and period-inspired, farmhouse-style structures elsewhere. Modern comforts include Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions, laptop-size safes, in-room coffee/tea service and luxury bedding. The nine function rooms inspire meetings and events alike, while sightseers can look forward to exploring the stunning natural landscape of the Peak District National Park, the majestic Chatsworth House (home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire) and even Alton Towers theme park.

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. In his general session at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore...

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

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...

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...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

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...
