China's air transport technology supplier Travelsky Technology has hired SITA to carry out major improvements to...
its disaster recovery facilities in time for this year's Beijing Olympics.
The contract includes the installation of a new disaster-recovery datacentre in Beijing.
Airlines around the world are expected to increase the number of flights arriving in Beijing by more than 70% during the Olympic Games.
Wang Ying Chun, Travelsky's chief financial officer, said, "We are working with SITA to ensure that foreign carriers can have the best possible links to their airline reservation systems. We are also setting up a disaster-recovery datacentre to ensure reliable back-up support to airlines during the Olympic Games."
SITA will provide separate Wan connections for this datacentre to make sure all network connections of airline carriers can be switched over to the disaster recovery centre in the event of any failure in the primary datacentre.
The SITA IP-based virtual private network service, which is now being installed at Beijing International Airport, is a managed service that provides customers with secure and reliable service.
