The Hotelplan Group owns a range of travel and tourism companies that specialize in vacation packages—including adventure holidays, skiing, and luxury breaks—across Europe. Over the last decade, the Group has implemented a number of innovative applications to handle its customer interactions, all hosted at its data center in Switzerland. This increasingly complex suite of SAP*-based applications requires an ever-growing amount of processor power.
“The Intel® Itanium® processor 9000 series works with our virtualization layer to allow us to use our server farm as a private cloud,” explained Heini Kalt, director ICT infrastructure for Hotelplan Group. “This gives us the flexibility to allocate processor power to the changing demands of our applications on-demand and ensures we are always using our resources most efficiently.”
