MIAMI BEACH, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 01/31/14 -- Travelers looking to experience South Beach's waves, glamorous nightlife and luxury living only need to know one name: Marriott Stanton South Beach. Formerly known as the South Beach Marriott, this stylish hotel underwent a comprehensive renovation starting in May 2013. Six months and $10-millon later, the transformation was completed in December 2013 and the renamed, redesigned property offers a chic welcome to an iconic destination.
Setting the standard for luxury hotels in Miami, the Marriott Stanton South Beach engaged Jeffrey Beers International to spearhead its renovations. The award-winning hospitality design-and-architecture firm was commissioned to overhaul the 226 guest rooms, eight suites, lobby corridors and the Concierge Lounge.
Beers' response was to look to the location of the hotel for inspiration. Accordingly, guest rooms reflect the hotel's sleek and luxurious color scheme of clean whites and soothing grays, although they also integrate warm accents of orange and brown to echo the area's fun-loving lifestyle. South Beach's culture appears in localized decorative touches as well, like built-in desks inspired by surfboards and photographs of Miami Beach that have been stylized and color-processed. Bathrooms, meanwhile, now feel more luxurious thanks to upscale finishes like glass showers and rainforest showerheads.
Guests enjoying the Concierge Lounge will notice improvements there as well. A new buffet island surrounded by sky-blue banquettes and gray lounge chairs creates a lofty feel. And to take advantage of its location on the 11th floor, the Lounge decorated its expansive terraces with inviting outdoor couches and high-top tables. Now, guests, whether there for a meeting, wedding or cocktail party, can drink in unparalleled city and beach views.
With its new, upscale-vintage aesthetic, the property stands at the forefront of other boutique hotels in Miami's South Beach neighborhood. And its new name honors the legacy of the Art Deco District. The two-story building that adjoins the hotel -- and that currently houses a Starbucks, guest rooms and meeting space -- once bore the name of Stanton.
Not only does the property stand out among other luxury Miami hotels with its new look, but its enviable SoFi address on Ocean Drive puts all of South Beach's best nightlife, shopping and attractions within walking distance. Travelers, in other words, have at last found one destination to experience all that is desirable in South Beach.

Following a $10-million renovation, the hotel features a contemporary aesthetic influenced by its Art Deco history along with streamlined guest rooms, sumptuous suites and amenities like flat-panel, LED televisions; private balconies with city or ocean views; and high-speed Internet access. A spa, fitness center and two infinity-edge pools encourage visitors to relax, while an on-site Starbucks and the Deco Blue Restaurant & Bar, which serves up seafood alongside breathtaking views of the water, keep guests inspired.

Why does developer experience matters, what makes for a great developer experience and what is the relationship between developer experience and the broader field of user experience? Software developers are gaining more influence over the purchase decisions of technologies with which they must build on and with which they must integrate. For example, the success of Amazon Web Services, Heroku and MongoDB has been driven primarily by individual software developers choosing to use these tools, ra...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

Gartner predicts that the bulk of new IT spending by 2016 will be for cloud platforms and applications and that nearly half of large enterprises will have cloud deployments by the end of 2017. The benefits of the cloud may be clear for applications that can tolerate brief periods of downtime, but for critical applications like SQL Server, Oracle and SAP, companies need a strategy for HA and DR protection. While traditional SAN-based clusters are not possible in these environments, SANless cluste...

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...
