The leading technology partner of the tourism industry has faced the need to upgrade corporate IT infrastructure and has chosen De Novo to implement corresponding project. The modernization project implied the tasks on service performance improvement; support for new applications, and also other significant changes in functional and non-functional system components.
- Develop a flexible IT infrastructure that would meet the business needs;
- Ensure continuity of critical IT services;
- Reduce the costs on IT infrastructure.
Corresponding approach has assured project successful implementation due to De Novo corporate methodology applied.
The approach of IT resources virtualization ensures significantly improvement of system performance. In order to resolve project tasks De Novo specialists has suggested applying VMware virtualization solution, provided by the leading company in virtualization industry. Amadeus Ukraine being an innovative company has approved the idea of developing a completely new and more effective IT infrastructure.
The proposed approach had significantly reduced hardware and software system costs and also enabled to reduce the number of physical servers used. The implementation of virtualisation solution will fix the legacy system defects and provide wide perspectives for system development. The newly installed hardware system will enable Amadeus Ukraine to increase its IT infrastructure performance on-demand, almost with no system limitations. Another advantage is that all infrastructure system changes can be performed by internal system maintenance personnel, so there is no need to involve external resources.
The project team has delivered a hardware and software infrastructure that meets the three core project objectives. Due to a rapid access to the required IT resources the new infrastructure is quite flexible and can meet the needs of target business users. The implementation of virtualized infrastructure has also ensured the higher level of failure resistance. For example, if one of the servers is down the system will immediately switch to another available server and the end-user will not experience any inconveniencies or interruptions in provided services. It takes only few minutes to restore the system in case of a complete breakdown; moreover some services are restored automatically without even the need to involve the IT maintenance specialists.
The new system deployed has significantly improved the quality of internal IT services and in the same time reduced system maintenance costs. Corresponding system advantages are ensured by more effective use of IT resources.
«The result of the project is an overall transformation of Amadeus Ukraine IT infrastructure. Being the company that is focused on IT innovations Amadeus Ukraine has definitely made the right decision to upgrade its software and hardware platforms. By applying state-of-the-art technologies the IT component of company infrastructure has become an easy to use and effective solution, ready to meet the rapidly changing needs of the internal customer. Furthermore, it has also enabled the company to significantly reduce the cost of the maintenance of IT infrastructure», – said Konstantin Dron, De Novo solutions architect and responsible for Amadeus system architecture development.
