Grupo Transhotel fait confiance au système Dynamic Web Acceleration de CDNetworks pour optimiser sa plateforme de réservation en ligne et renforcer sa croissance internationale

CDNetworks, le seul réseau multinational de diffusion de contenu offrant une expertise locale et des infrastructures à l'intérieur de la Chine continentale et à travers six continents, permet à la société espagnole Grupo Transhotel de déployer et rendre plus disponible son système de réservation en ligne utilisé quotidiennement par 50 000 agences de voyage dans le monde entier. La croissance et l'expansion internationale de la société, en particulier en Asie, ainsi que sa volonté de maintenir la qualité des services offerts aux clients ont motivé le choix du système Dynamic Web Acceleration de CDNetworks.

« Le marché asiatique devient pour nous très important et nous avions besoin de pouvoir compter sur une société susceptible de nous soutenir alors que nous mettons en place de nouvelles stratégies et des plans de consolidation de nos activités internationales », a déclaré Francisco Javier Diéguez, directeur de l'architecture et des infrastructures chez Transhotel.

Après une croissance commerciale rapide en Asie, Grupo Transhotel a choisi CDNetworks pour remplacer son fournisseur CDN existant, expressément pour garantir la rapidité et la disponibilité de sa plateforme TOR qui assure la réservation en ligne des chambres d'hôtel et des services de voyage et est intégrée à des milliers de sites à travers le monde.

L'infrastructure et la souplesse de l'offre CDNetworks ont assuré l'accès rapide et ininterrompu à la plateforme de réservation TOR System Advanced de Grupo Transhotel. Cette dernière prend en charge les quelque 3,4 millions de transactions quotidiennes traitées par les agences de voyages à travers le monde.

« Nous ne pouvions pas permettre que nos services soient entravés par des problèmes de rapidité ou de temps de latence. Nous voulions maintenir des niveaux élevés de service en écartant tout risque de notre activité commerciale et de nos clients », ajoute M. Diéguez.

La plateforme de réservation TOR System Advanced traitant 94 % de l'activité de Grupo Transhotel, deux arguments plaidaient fortement pour un changement de fournisseur de réseau de diffusion de contenus (CDN) : l'expertise de CDNetworks en matière d'optimisation de sites e-commerce et ses PoP (points de présence) implantés dans les marchés cibles.

« Nous avons choisi CDNetworks en raison de sa réputation de pouvoir pénétrer dans des marchés éloignés et en développement. Compte tenu de son expertise du marché asiatique et de la Chine en particulier, la décision de travailler avec eux allait de soi », a conclu M. Diéguez.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.

The world of cloud and application development is not just for the hardened developer these days. In their session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, and Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, will pull back the curtain of the architecture of a fun demo application purpose-built for the cloud. They will focus on demonstrating how they leveraged compute, storage, messaging, and other cloud elements hosted at SoftLayer to lower the effort and difficulty of putting together a useful application. This will be an active demonstration and review of simple command-line tools and resources, so don’t be afraid if you are not a seasoned developer.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.

Chief Security Officers (CSO), CIOs and IT Directors are all concerned with providing a secure environment from which their business can innovate and customers can safely consume without the fear of Distributed Denial of Service attacks. To be successful in today's hyper-connected world, the enterprise needs to leverage the capabilities of the web and be ready to innovate without fear of DDoS attacks, concerns about application security and other threats. Organizations face great risk from increasingly frequent and sophisticated attempts to render web properties unavailable, and steal intellectual property or personally identifiable information. Layered security best practices extend security beyond the data center, delivering DDoS protection and maintaining site performance in the face of fast-changing threats.

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marc Jones, Vice President of Product Innovation for SoftLayer, will explain how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
Are you interested in accelerating innovation, simplifying deployments, reducing complexity, and lowering development costs? The cloud is changing the face of application development and deployment, with enterprise-grade infrastructure and platform services making it possible for you to build and rapidly scale enterprise applications. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Gene Eun, Sr. Director, Oracle Cloud at Oracle, will discuss the latest solutions and strategies for application developers and enterprise IT organizations to leverage Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) to build and deploy modern business applications in the cloud.
Hybrid cloud refers to the federation of a public and private cloud environment for the purpose of extending the elastic and flexibility of compute, storage and network capabilities, in an on-demand, pay-as-you go basis. The hybrid approach allows a business to take advantage of the scalability and cost-effectiveness that a public cloud computing environment offers without exposing mission-critical applications and data to third-party vulnerabilities. Hybrid cloud environments involve complex management challenges. First, organizations struggle to maintain control over the resources that lie outside of their managed IT scope. They also need greater infrastructure visibility to help reduce maintenance costs and ensure that their company data and resources are properly handled and secured.
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. At NuoDB we're involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO of NuoDB, Inc., will cover experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
Understanding the future of Big Data is crucial in the early stages of decision making around Big Data architectures. In the enterprise, what stands out is the need to integrate Hadoop smoothly into your existing data warehouse architecture, while taking advantage of existing skills and investments. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marty Gubar, Director of Product Management at Oracle, will present a strategy for enabling integrated data management using both Hadoop and relational technologies. In particular, he'll look at how SQL, long the standard for the data warehouse, is increasingly being used on Hadoop. The real prize, though, is Smart SQL processing, seamlessly integrating the data warehouse and Hadoop into a single, Big Data Management System.
The time has come for humanity’s first interstellar trek to Terranuvem, the cloud planet, and Chief Engineer Cyrus Agarwal has been chosen to ready a ship for the voyage.
