Bookmaker met DiGiCOR’s expert with a mission in mind: find a solution to accommodate their online betting transactions
and cross-site failover. High performance servers and network are the two areas which
we think can improve Bookmaker’s online betting website.
Obtain a solution that could significantly reduce any bottlenecks whilst being reliable in handling thousands of transactions.
Upgrade Bookmaker’s server and infrastructure to support and outstanding service.
HOW WE HELPED
Suggested a solution based on a Digicor server comprising a total of 8-node servers that exceeded
performance expectations with faster response times and a better online customer experience.
Obtain a solution with far less capital expenditure
Exceeded performance expectations with faster response times;
a prodigious online experience has led to greater customer satisfaction
Growing customer base and greater market share
This is a highly competitive market where every second counts. Therefore, the infrastructure
needs to be performing at its peak with no bottlenecks at any time and it must be absolutely
reliable. Databases need to be high performance to handle thousands of transactions.
Thus, DiGiCOR’s expert came up with a conclusion in which Bookmaker’s server and network
infrastructure must be upgraded to support an outstanding service.
How We Helped
The solution was installed in two separate data centres, with failure configured. The server solution consisted of 8 nodes Servers, SSD and Intel Xeon CPUs for both DC’s. Four 2U Servers for the DB applications and six MicroCloud servers. The MSSQL databases were configured on the 8 Node Servers, which provides the high performance required to handle the massive workload when the big events are on.
The network infrastructure was made up of Ethernet switches and CER routers, configured for redundancy between the 2 data centres. Each data centre was set up for a performance network between servers and switches and the links between the DC’s were configured via 2 redundant links in each route. With the advanced functionality built into the supplied switches, there are no single points of failure. If there are any switch or link failures, the network can automatically reroute traffic without any loss of data and zero network configuration time.
Bookmaker chose DiGiCOR’s solution because the capital expenditure was far less than anything the competitors could offer.
The solution has also exceeded performance expectations with faster response times;
a prodigious online experience has led to greater customer satisfaction.
This, in turn, has led to a growing customer base and greater market share.
