Unique Vacations books Escala
Unique Vacations Inc. has ordered a new Escala PL1650R with EMC CX300 disks to support their web-based reservations system.
Unique Vacations is located in Miami, Florida. They are the worldwide representative for Sandals and Beaches Resorts, and are recognized as the Caribbean’s No. 1 Ultra All Inclusive Resorts.
Sandals is a collection of 12 of the most beautiful resorts on the Caribbean’s best beaches in Jamaica, St. Lucia, Antigua and the Bahamas. Beaches provides all-inclusive resorts for families in Jamaica, the Turks and Caicos islands.
Unique Vacations uses Bull Escala systems for their web-based reservation system to schedule everything from flights, to golf, scuba diving lessons, and even arranging for your own personal butler. Major concerns for Unique Vacations are the hurricanes that strike Florida each year.
According to Roger Seivright, Unique Vacations’ IT Director, “While Information technology is critical to most industries, the Travel and Leisure industry cannot function without 24X7 access to their computer systems. Our web based reservation system is the backbone of our business. We have to ensure that we can continue to operate around the clock, even when natural disasters, like hurricanes that strike Florida each year, are predicted. The new Bull system will enable us to provide a mirror-image back-up of our primary reservation system, which also run on Power 5 servers.”
