High performance servers and network are the two areas which we think can improve Bookmaker’s online betting website.

  • Challenges

    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. Database 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 comprised of an 8 nodes Servers, SSD’s and Intel Xeon CPU’s 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 setup 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 re-route traffic without any loss of data and zero network configuration time.
