Hotelier Improves Data Backup With Sun Server and Storage Technology
Source: Sun Microsystems
For Accor North America, maintaining hotel guests' personal and financial data is an important, if less obvious, part of the hospitality it provides. The financial systems in its Dallas datacenter include multiple applications and storage for processes such as accounting, payables, and invoicing. To ensure adequate performance and capacity, the company upgrades its infrastructure including servers and storage devices about every three years for production and test, and every five years for development. Sun and Sun partner Soccour Solutions worked with Accor North America to refresh its storage area network and backup solution with Sun SPARC Enterprise servers, Sun StorageTek modular arrays and high performance T10000 tape drives. Built-in tapedrive encryption and the StorageTek Crypto Key Management System help protect data.
