ANNAPOLIS, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 04/11/14 -- It might be tempting to plan another bland summer escape if it weren't for the SpringHill Suites Annapolis. Sure, families and couples could retreat to their tried-and-true destinations, but then they'd miss out on experiencing the Annapolis accommodations that have guests and industry experts alike buzzing with excitement. (Not to mention the most beautiful time of year to visit the Mid-Atlantic city.) From its newly renovated suites and public spaces to its smart design (ahem, solar panels), this is one hotel that gets vacations started off right.
And plenty of people know it. For seven years, the hotel has received awards for its outstanding service, and last year was no exception. At the 2013 Marriott International Performance Awards, the property was recognized with the Gold Award, which is bestowed only upon hotels that rank within the top 10 percent of their brand's Overall Guest Service Satisfaction (GSS) scores. That means travelers exploring hotels in Annapolis, MD will find few that can match the track record for service of this top property.
Of course, the value-added amenities don't hurt either. This Annapolis hotel is equipped with many appealing features like an indoor pool, complimentary hot breakfasts and free high-speed Internet access throughout the property.
The 120 suites, meanwhile, redefine what it means to travel well. Offering some of the most attractive and functional hotel rooms in Annapolis, the property outfits its suites with mini-refrigerators, sinks, microwaves and iHome alarm clocks.
It's no wonder, then, that winning the Gold Award for seven years hasn't been the hotel's only achievement. TripAdvisor also recognized the property with its coveted Award of Excellence in 2013 for consistently ranking within the top 10 percent of all hospitality businesses in the world. Like the Gold Award, this honor reflects the opinions of the judges who matter most: real-life travelers.
As winter gradually gives way to spring and summer, this hotel is ideally positioned to afford some unforgettable holidays. Whether families arrive for the historical attractions and Six Flags amusement park, or couples book a stay to see the sights of nearby Washington, D.C. and the numerous festivals and events planned throughout the balmy months, there's only one choice for a reliably superior stay. Summer is about to get fun again.

Plus the hotel's free breakfast energizes everyone to get out and see the many nearby sights, including waterside restaurants and shops, historic attractions, the U.S. Naval Academy and even Washington, D.C.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money. In his session at DevOps Summit, Otis Gospodnetić, co-author of Lucene in Action and founder...
