AVENTURA, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/01/14 -- Supporting our country's troops can be as basic or involved as one wishes. From sporting a yellow ribbon on the car, to signing up for the National Guard, the options are as diverse as the military itself. And now, thanks to the Special Operations Golf Tournament of South Florida held this May 18 at the Turnberry Isle Miami, Autograph Collection, it can also be downright fun.
As an award-winning luxury golf resort in South Florida, Turnberry Isle Miami lends an air of exclusivity to this worthy cause hosted by the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. Its two Raymond Floyd-designed championship courses have been recognized by Golf Digest, Golfweek and GOLF Magazine as offering exceptional play.
And golfers participating in the tournament will have every opportunity to experience the courses' range of features. The tournament includes a golf clinic sponsored by the resort, lunch sponsored by Shorty's BBQ, golfer's gifts and a sumptuous awards dinner prepared by Turnberry Isle Miami's renowned chefs.
But golf aficionados may have a hard time leaving the tropical courses behind, even for such tempting activities. This 5-star hotel in Aventura unfolds along 300 acres of lush property between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, and the inviting landscape is reflected in every inch of the two courses. Elevation changes, contoured fairways, striking (and strategic) water features and undulating greens are just some of the features that make this an acclaimed golf resort near Miami.
Other elements enhancing that reputation have to do with the hotel itself. Guests arriving for the tournament and staying on property will be treated to the sort of service and amenities that define luxury. A private beach club, a world-class spa and cuisine prepared within Celebrity Chef Michael Mina's Bourbon Steak restaurant are just a few of the pleasures afforded by this Mediterranean-inspired destination. And if guests would rather just unwind after a day on the course, they can always drink in the views from their private balconies and relax.
As one of the more compelling North Miami hotel deals, the Special Operations Golf Tournament of South Florida will directly benefit the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. The Foundation enjoys a low overhead, which means 94.5 percent of all funds go directly to its programs, which provide funding for post-secondary education to the surviving children of special-operations troops killed in the line of duty. The organization enjoys a wide range of support, with corporations like The Trump Organization, Whole Foods Market, JetBlue and SunTrust Bank all pledging their support to this memorable -- and profoundly meaningful -- event.

Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...

Big Data is amazing, it's life changing and yes it is changing how we see our world. Big Data, however, can sometimes be too big. Organizations that are not amassing massive amounts of information and feeding into their decision buckets, smaller data that feeds in from customer buying patterns, buying decisions and buying influences can be more useful when used in the right way. In their session at Big Data Expo, Ermanno Bonifazi, CEO & Founder of Solgenia, and Ian Khan, Global Strategic Positi...
