MENIFEE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/01/13 -- The recent model grand opening of Brookfield Homes' Big Sky neighborhood at Audie Murphy Ranch was the talk of the town, drawing more than 700 visitors to this new Menifee address. Enthusiastic guests spent a fun-filled day enjoying a variety of activities, which included a ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor Scott Mann, Councilman John Denver and the Menifee Chamber of Commerce, a pancake breakfast and K-FROG radio opportunity drawing. Guests also enjoyed tours of the beautiful model homes for this family-oriented neighborhood, where big one- and two-story residences are now selling at prices starting from the low $300,000s.
"Our sales team was thrilled with the incredibly positive feedback from prospective homebuyers regarding the neighborhood's three model homes," said Rocky Tracy, Vice President of Sales for Brookfield Homes. "Big Sky's grand new homes were exceptionally designed to offer livable spaces for all stages in life and guests were delighted with the contemporary architecture and generous room sizes to accommodate a diversity of lifestyles and priorities. One-of-a-kind items that made a definite impression on guests included the deck option off the master bedroom in the Residence Three, as well as the option of a living suite, and the opportunity to purchase a single-story home. The neighborhood's view locations and large lots were also the topic of much conversation, especially among homeshoppers who want to fully experience their new home surroundings and the natural majesty of Audie Murphy Ranch."
Offering a scenic, elevated location within the community, Big Sky's new home designs range from approximately 2,790 to 3,800 square feet, with three to six bedrooms and 2.5 to 5.5 bathrooms plus a variety of room options to give families the flexibility they want. Three- and four-car oversized garages are ideal for buyers who need extra room for vehicles, sports equipment and tools. Generous lots afford homeowners the opportunity to dine and entertain outdoors.
The optional first-floor living suite with a preference to add a kitchenette is one of Big Sky's most innovative features. The living suite is located within the house, yet separated from the main living areas with a private side entrance, offering family members the privacy of their own living area, while still staying connected to the household. Additional highlights at Big Sky range from sizeable dining rooms to large spaces that can be utilized for crafting and other activities. Brookfield Homes appreciates that families require practical amenities and has designed Big Sky with super laundry rooms, large closets and plenty of storage space for toys and holiday decorations. Big Sky's desirable location will place residents within close proximity to local conveniences, including the Menifee Countryside Market and the Menifee Town Center.

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

The truth is, today's databases are anything but agile - they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application an...

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
