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.

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.

There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high-level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that allow marketers to cut through the noise and design their campaigns around strong, predictive signals, rather than arbitrary statistics. SendGrid sends up to half a billion emails a day for customers such as Pinterest and GitHub. All this email adds up to more text than produced in the entire twitterverse.
