IT for Hospitality & Events

 

IT for Hospitality & Events

Like Retail, the Hospitality & Events sector really defined our early years as a IT solution provider. The Festival segment was one we particularly excelled in, due to extreme traffic profiles, festival sites are some of the hardest and demanding to operate. Tumbleweed will be blowing around them throughout the winter months, until lineup announcements are made, then it’s hard hats and sandbags in front of servers!

Application Delivery Controllers are the ‘secret ingredient’ to dealing with extremely spiky traffic, they not only keep the lights on, but also enable cost control with advanced compression and bandwidth management functionality.

(But Don't Just Take Our Word For It!)


Vision Nine HQ Group

"ACC’s APP:Host Expression Engine hosting solution provides our online operations with the best performance that we could possibly hope for. This is a critical requirement for the business, due to a surging traffic profile – with huge usage spikes generated from popular, time sensitive announcements, commonly amplified many times over by social media activity.

Our business is events, and ACC are always proactive in making sure they are on top of what is going on when. When Hurricane / Tropical Storm Bertha brought an early end to our Boardmasters 2014 event, our events website was exposed to not just national, but huge international TV coverage. ACC’s hosting solution soaked up all of this load without breaking a sweat, and ensured the website was fully accessible to festival goers, enabling us to broadcast official event information in what was a very serious situation.

 

Aside from great performance, their ability to seamlessly work with our development team is an incredibly valuable quality – something we have never before experienced from a hosting provider."
