V-TRAFIC chooses Bull’s subsidiary Agarik to host its Web-based traffic information service
V-TRAFIC, the leading real-time road traffic information provider in France, has chosen to outsource the hosting and running of its critical Web infrastructure to Agarik. Agarik provides services ranging from renting secured hosting space to 24/7 monitoring of the system. Agarik will also act as an operator for V-TRAFIC, supplying dedicated bandwidth for its mass-market Internet site.
This critical Web platform relies on Agarik’s high availability and expertise
V-TRAFIC chose Agarik not only for its high level of technical expertise in the area of complex and critical architectures, but also for the responsiveness of its teams, and the quality of its hosting center.
Cédric Viret, V-TRAFIC’S Technical Director, summarized the criteria for their choice: “We were looking for a provider that could implement a complex platform based on multiple technologies in less than 14 days. For us, Agarik’s expertise and responsiveness were the two decisive criteria. Having initially consulted Agarik about outsourcing our V-TRAFIC.COM project, the company should now be able to handle the combined Mediamobile Web platform.”
V-TRAFIC’S Web platform was deployed on a multi-technology 64-bit platform, featuring a Windows server, SQL server, Apache and .net. This platform is completely redundant, in order to guarantee optimum service continuity. In addition, as for all its customers, AGARIK guarantees V-TRAFIC the fastest intervention and recovery times on the French market, subject to a Service Level Agreement.
