Betting World’s IT Wager Pays Off with Microsoft South Africa
South Africa’s largest fixed odds operator, Betting World, secures IT uptime with Microsoft SQL Server 2012. This direction was based on the identification of weaknesses within Betting World’s SQL indexing process. Following consultation with First Technology EDS and Microsoft South Africa, Betting World opted to split its reporting and transactional data loads allowing the workload to be spread across available computing resources. Microsoft’s always-on technology available in the enterprise edition of SQL 2012 was utilized to build a high availability environment, ultimately enabling both maximum uptime as well as channeled workloads.
