AGARIK presents its new Website hosting platform for special events: Event Services
AGARIK, which provides and hosts business-critical and complex Web infrastructures, announces the launch of Event Services, a turnkey solution developed specifically in response to a growing demand for hosting Web sites for events. Event Services draws on Agarik’s exclusive technology for resource allocation on demand.

This new offering of a temporary, custom-built platform provides the ideal solution for interactive communications agencies when it comes to managing their customers’ Web campaigns. The agency Kassius has notably used this service for the campaign it ran to help launch the Le Numéro 118 218 directory enquiries service in France.

Event Services features:

  • Flexibility: contractual commitment and monthly billing
  • Rapidity: a turnkey service, with sites up and running in less than 24 hours
  • Scalability: built-in capacity to absorb increased demand, no matter how many hits the site gets
  • Modularity: a server can be dedicated to Web or email traffic, on demand, and a matter of minutes.

Event Services has been made possible by ROD (Resources On Demand) technology, an exclusive innovation by AGARIK. ROD technology makes it possible to re-allocate resources very easily, on demand. Easy to administer and extremely robust, the ROD platform is ideal for supporting hits from millions of Internet users.

As Cédric Jean, AGARIK’s Sales Director, commented: "AGARIK is a true pioneer in this field, having delivered its first events hosting service as long ago as 2002. Event Services retains all the advantages of the earlier versions of this service: rapid implementation, monthly billing and the best response times for service and business recovery on the market based on Service Level Agreements (SLAs). In addition, the latest solution combines exclusive resource allocation-on-demand technology with a bandwidth capacity of 5Gbits/sec".

AGARIK specializes in supplying, hosting and outsourcing for critical Web infrastructures, and is also a network operator and ASP provider in France.

Customers such as SFR, Dassault Systèmes and Canal Plus Active have all put their trust in AGARIK’s expertise in the areas of infrastructure and network management, supervision, third-party operations maintenance and security.

AGARIK’s technical teams administer and guarantee 24x7 operational status maintenance for hardware at AGARIK’s own data center in St Ouen, France. The company offers the most competitive intervention and business recovery timescales (SLAs) on the market, and has built up a highly efficient and scalable multi-operator network. AGARIK is registered as an ARCEP operator, and is proprietor of its own L33-1 (data) license, also offering collaborative Microsoft solutions in ASP mode (SaaS) via its subsidiary, Soft2You.
AGARIK is a subsidiary of the Bull Group.
