EZYield has completed a significant round of upgrades to its server environment, allowing its suite of global solutions, including channel management, a website booking engine, and integrated reservation delivery, to run faster, more powerfully and with greater security.

Now operating on a 40-gigabit InfiniBand network - one of the most powerful and fastest bandwidth standards on the market - EZYield’s 3,800 hotel clients have already begun experiencing connection speeds that are eight times faster than the previous data network.

The stability of the next-generation system has improved as well, with the number of physical servers more than doubling to ensure that the EZYield network can continue its exponential international growth without the risk of diminished performance.

Perhaps most significantly, EZYield has built its own internal virtualized computing environment augmented by the use of Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud. This combination of technologies enables EZYield’s product to scale quickly and be deployed to key regions globally.

The technology structure allows EZYield to quickly and virtually migrate its servers to any data center throughout the world. Combined with automation servers that backup to the Amazon platform, providing top-to-bottom redundancy that ensures the entire network remains fully functional and secure - and that no client data is lost - even in the event of a sustained outage. Automated load balancing and bandwidth purchase also allows EZYield to cost-effectively scale its systems to handle heavy rate loading and updating periods, scaling back during off-peak hours.

 The comprehensive virtualization measures—which include virtual data centers in Singapore, Japan, Ireland, as well as in the United States—mean new servers can go live in any part of the world within an hour.

“These improvements create a truly cutting-edge computer environment - networking just doesn’t get any quicker than this,” said Michael Miller, EZYield’s chief technology officer. “It will make the actual connection speed between the channel management platform and the OTAs lightning-quick, while also increasing the scalability of the system. Simply put, we’ve improved from standard equipment to fantastic equipment.”
