Reducing the impact of downtime with Audley Travel

Audley Travel is a Tour Operator providing high quality, tailor-made holidays. As the company was expanding quickly with multiple offices around the world, their aim was to improve resilience and improve their procedures in the event of unexpected downtime.

xTEN worked closely with Audley’s development and operations teams to design a solution that was best for them. Each office was given a local resilient cluster which can operate offline for days. This required some creative application changes and specialist knowledge of SQL Server. As well as this, we performed a SQL Server upgrade to utilise newer features and ensure version support.

The result: better protection against downtime. Thanks to the design, if one of Audley’s many office locations found their systems isolated, they could continue to work. This reduced the financial impact of time offline.
