Grupo Transhotel verlässt sich auf Dynamic Web Acceleration von CDNetworks für höheres Tempo bei Online-Buchungsplattform und Konsolidierung internationalen Wachstums

CDNetworks, das einzige multinationale Content Delivery Network mit lokaler Expertise und Infrastruktur innerhalb von Festlandchina und auf sechs Kontinenten, hilft der spanischen Grupo Transhotel bei der globalen Zustellungsfähigkeit und erhöhten Verfügbarkeit ihres täglich von 50.000 Reiseunternehmen weltweit genutzten Online-Buchungssystems. Das Wachstum und die internationale Expansion mit Schwerpunkt in Asien sowie die Notwendigkeit für das Unternehmen, gleichbleibende Servicequalität für seine Kunden aufrechtzuerhalten, waren zentrale Faktoren für die Wahl von Dynamic Web Acceleration durch CDNetworks.

„Der asiatische Markt wird für uns immer wichtiger, und wir mussten auf ein Unternehmen zählen können, das uns beim Entwerfen neuer Strategien und Pläne für die Konsolidierung unserer internationalen Aktivitäten unterstützen kann“, sagte Francisco Javier Diéguez, Architektur- und Infrastrukturmanager bei Transhotel.

Nachdem Transhotel in Asien rasch gewachsen ist, entschied sich die Gruppe dafür, ihren bisherigen CDN-Anbieter durch CDNetworks zu ersetzen, und nannte als Grund dafür die Fähigkeit von CDNetworks, Geschwindigkeit und Verfügbarkeit der Online-TOR-Buchungsplattform für Hotelzimmer und Reiseservices zu garantieren, die in Tausende von Websites weltweit integriert ist.

Der Support und die Flexibilität des CDNetworks-Angebots konnte einen schnellen und ununterbrochenen Zugang zur TOR-System-Buchungsplattform von Grupo Transhotel gewährleisten, und die täglich eingehenden 3,4 Millionen Anfragen durch Reisebüros weltweit werden so unterstützt.

„Wir konnten es uns einfach nicht leisten, dass unser Service durch Probleme mit Geschwindigkeit oder Latenz behindert wird; wir wollten das hohe Niveau unseres Services erhalten und sicherstellen, dass wir unseren Geschäftsbetrieb und den unserer Klienten nicht gefährden“, so Diéguez weiter.

Da 94 Prozent der geschäftlichen Aktivitäten von Grupo Transhotel über die Buchungsplattform TOR System Advanced durchgeführt werden, haben die Kenntnisse von CDNetworks beim Betreiben globaler E-Commerce-Websites sowie die weltweiten Points of Presence (PoPs) des Unternehmens in den Zielmärkten stark zu der Entscheidung beigetragen, den CDN-Anbieter zu wechseln.

„Wir haben uns für CDNetworks aufgrund des Rufs der Firma entschieden, auch weit entfernte und in der Entwicklung befindliche Märkte zu erreichen. Angesichts seiner Expertise auf dem asiatischen Markt und insbesondere in China ist uns die Entscheidung, mit diesem Unternehmen zusammenzuarbeiten, leicht gefallen“, schloss Diéguez.

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore’s Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, to discuss how infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical.
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.

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.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
Until recently, many organizations required specialized departments to perform mapping and geospatial analysis, and they used Esri on-premise solutions for that work.
