When its global customer base tripled, Agoda, an online hotel reservation service, needed to improve the consistency and availability of its 20 terabytes of data. To improve service, the company streamlined data replication across multiple data centers with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise and Windows Server 2008 Enterprise. Agoda is also using SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services and SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services to enhance its business intelligence. Transactional data replication has reduced the time it takes to make companywide updates from a day to a few seconds and has helped the company implement a seamless disaster recovery strategy. Agoda has improved business insight and IT management. And with higher availability, the company is offering better customer service.
