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.

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Technology is enabling a new approach to collecting and using data. This approach, commonly referred to as the "Internet of Things" (IoT), enables businesses to use real-time data from all sorts of things including machines, devices and sensors to make better decisions, improve customer service, and lower the risk in the creation of new revenue opportunities. In his General Session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Dave Wagstaff, Vice President and Chief Architect at BSQUARE Corporation, discuss the real benefits to focus on, how to understand the requirements of a successful solution, the flow of ...
Cloud Expo 2014 TV commercials will feature @ThingsExpo, which was launched in June, 2014 at New York City's Javits Center as the largest 'Internet of Things' event in the world.
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
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 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
