Grupo Transhotel si affida alla soluzione Dynamic Web Acceleration di CDNetworks per velocizzare la propria piattaforma di prenotazione online e consolidare la crescita internazionale

CDNetworks, unica rete multinazionale dedicata alla trasmissione di contenuti con competenze locali e infrastrutture nella Cina continentale e in sei continenti, sta aiutando il Grupo Transhotel, con sede in Spagna, a favorire la distribuzione globale dei propri prodotti e servizi e a supportare la maggiore disponibilità del sistema aziendale di prenotazione online utilizzato quotidianamente da 50.000 agenzie di viaggio in tutto il mondo. La crescita e l'espansione internazionale della società, specialmente in Asia, nonché la necessità della medesima di mantenere una qualità costante dei servizi offerti alla clientela, sono stati i fattori determinanti nella scelta dell'acceleratore Dynamic Web Acceleration di CDNetworks.

“Il mercato asiatico sta diventando molto importante per noi, ragione per cui avevamo bisogno di una società che ci potesse supportare nella definizione di nuove strategie e piani d'azione per il consolidamento delle nostre attività internazionali”, ha dichiarato Francisco Javier Diéguez, responsabile per il settore architettura e infrastrutture di Transhotel.

A seguito della rapida crescita commerciale in Asia, Grupo Transhotel ha scelto CDNetworks in sostituzione del precedente provider CDN, adducendo come motivazione la capacità di garantire la velocità e la disponibilità della propria piattaforma TOR per le prenotazioni online di camere d'albergo e servizi di viaggio, integrata in migliaia di siti web di tutto il mondo.

Il supporto e la flessibilità della soluzione di CDNetworks ha garantito un accesso rapido e ininterrotto all'avanzata piattaforma di prenotazione TOR System Advanced del Gruppo Transhotel, supportando giornalmente una media di 3,4 milioni di richieste inoltrate dalle agenzie di viaggio di tutto il mondo.

“Semplicemente non potevamo permettere che il nostro servizio fosse ostacolato da problemi di velocità o latenza; desideravamo mantenere un elevato livello dei servizi e assicurare tutti che la nostra società non espone a rischio gli interessi aziendali e tanto meno quelli dei nostri clienti”, ha aggiunto Diéguez.

Il fatto che il 94% dell'attività venga espletata attraverso la piattaforma di prenotazione TOR System Advanced, la conoscenza di CDNetworks degli strumenti di potenziamento e automazione dei siti di commercio elettronico globale, nonché la diffusione nei mercati target di tutto il mondo dei propri punti di presenza (Points of Presence, PoP), sono i fattori che hanno contribuito fortemente alla decisione di cambiare i provider CDN.

“Abbiamo scelto CDNetworks per la sua nota abilità nel saper penetrare in mercati lontani e in via di sviluppo. Considerata l'esperienza nei mercati asiatici e in particolare in Cina, la decisione di lavorare con CDNetworks è stata semplice”, ha concluso Diéguez.

Over the last few years the healthcare ecosystem has revolved around innovations in Electronic Health Record (HER) based systems. This evolution has helped us achieve much desired interoperability. Now the focus is shifting to other equally important aspects – scalability and performance. While applying cloud computing environments to the EHR systems, a special consideration needs to be given to the cloud enablement of Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA), i.e., the largest single medical system in the United States.
Cloud and Big Data present unique dilemmas: embracing the benefits of these new technologies while maintaining the security of your organization’s assets. When an outside party owns, controls and manages your infrastructure and computational resources, how can you be assured that sensitive data remains private and secure? How do you best protect data in mixed use cloud and big data infrastructure sets? Can you still satisfy the full range of reporting, compliance and regulatory requirements? In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Derek Tumulak, Vice President of Product Management at Vormetric, will discuss how to address data security in cloud and Big Data environments so that your organization isn’t next week’s data breach headline.
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.

Every healthy ecosystem is diverse. This is especially true in cloud ecosystems, where portability and interoperability are more important than old enterprise models of proprietary ownership. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Baker, Server Product Manager at Canonical/Ubuntu, will discuss how single vendors used to take the lead in creating and delivering technology, but in a cloud economy, where users want tools of their preference, when and where they need them, it makes no sense.
