BANGKOK, THAILAND -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Now in its 12th year, TripAdvisor's annual Traveller's Choice awards highlight the best in the world of hospitality and travel. Among the latest winners for the 2014 awards is the Mayfair, Bangkok - Marriott Executive Apartments, which ranked in top 25 hotels for family over several thousand hotels in Thailand.
This Bangkok hotel near Skytrain station was the only in the city to be recognized for its family-friendly features, including a kids' area and saltwater rooftop pool at the 24-hour health club, plus a wide variety of kids menu at Mayfair Bistro.
Hang around in the lobby long enough and you will see a family-like familiarity between guests and staff as they exchange greetings and share jokes with each other. This kind of treatment is perhaps typical of the warmth of Thai hospitality but rarely evident to such a familiar degree in many of the other well-known luxury hotels.
"This award is a great honor," says Supap Sirins, General Manager of this Bangkok city Centre hotel. "Our team works tirelessly throughout the year to provide guests with the best experience possible. We are delighted that our guests truly experience our brand and its service, family-oriented facilities, and our professional team of staff."
Award winners are determined by evaluating reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor users around the globe. "We're excited to recognize the world's best properties based on the opinions of those who know them best," Barbara Messing, Chief Marketing Officer for TripAdvisor, says. "For those seeking inspiration for their 2014 travel planning, this list of spectacular accommodations that received 2014 Travellers' Choice awards is a perfect place to start."

“Oh, dev is dev and ops is ops, and never the twain shall meet.” With apoloies to Rudyard Kipling and all of his fans, this describes the early state of the two sides of DevOps. Yet the DevOps approach is demanded by cloud computing, as the speed, flexibility, and scalability in today's so-called “Third Platform” must not be hindered by the traditional limitations of software development and deployment. A recent report by Gartner, for example, says that 25% of Global 2000 companies will b...

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...
