Redbus' High Availability Co-Lo Service Takes Off

August 24, 2005
August 24, 2005 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - 2-RZ, the high-availability colocation service launched in February 2005 by Redbus Interhouse (Germany) GmbH, Global Switch FM GmbH and Global Voice Networks AG, has proved highly successful for client i:FAO Group, reporting 100% availability of their Business Travel eProcurement System during the past six months.

2-RZs is a unique distributed colocation solution offered by Redbus Interhouse and Global Switch’s high-availability data centres in Niederrad and Rödelheim (Frankfurt), using Global Voice’s redundant optical fibre infrastructure to connect the data centres. Each state-of-the-art facility provides high specification fully-redundant power supply, cooling, fire protection systems and high-performance connections to a wide range of providers. The data centre partnership benefits from the facilities’ ideal geographic locations - easily within the maximum allowable fibre distance for mirrored IT systems, while being situated far enough apart that it is unlikely that both would be affected by the same event or disaster.

The i:FAO Group operates an ASP based business travel eProcurement system, “cytric”, one of the worlds leading travel management systems, serving clients throughout Europe, the USA and Asia. The ability to offer high quality applications that are both reliable and available around the clock is essential for the success of the business.

Alexander Schott, Chief Technology Officer of i:FAO commented “Our customers require access to our service anytime, anywhere. It is, therefore, vital that our systems are always available and that there are no bottlenecks to reduce the performance of our service. I am very satisfied with our decision to choose the 2-RZs product. It has given us a colocation solution that we can rely on 100%.”

“The last few months have shown us in no uncertain terms that the 2-RZs concept works, and that with this solution, we can guarantee a previously unachieved level of availability together with an exceptional level of security and service to businesses who require them”, said Martin Essig, Managing Director, Redbus Interhouse (Germany) GmbH.
