Due to a planned move, colleagues from Algotech in Hungary were faced with the decision of whether to build a new in-house server room and move their aging infrastructure or move to the cloud.
Although we are members of the same group, AlgotechCloud's services have been compared with those of international giants in infrastructure operations. The clear advantage of AlgoCloud is the flexibility of the solution, which is not tied to predefined products. Joint consultation and implementation results in services tailored exactly to our partner's business.
The first of the Virtual Data Centres was prepared for our Hungarian colleagues more than a year ago and is based on a subscription package that they can administer themselves. Currently, there are several dozens of virtual servers in the environment, which ensure the operation of the entire company, including communication with customers.
The entire solution currently consumes nearly 100 GB of RAM, 60 virtual processors and several TB of disk space.
The next phase of our cooperation is currently the preparation and operation of two new Virtual Data Centres for the operation of commercial products by Algotech Hungary. One of the environments is intended as a test environment, which implies a different setup and a different charging model, which is tailored exactly to the purpose of the environment and is certainly interesting for other companies engaged in the development and operation of applications.
"Providing services to related companies is always much harder than to others. The requirements are usually higher and the economic expectations lower. Algotech in CEE is organized as independent companies in each country and therefore it was significantly harder to convince colleagues of the advantages of our solution compared to the competition. Finally, after a long negotiation, we succeeded and more than a year of experience shows that it was the right decision," says František Zeman, CEO of Algotech Czech Republic.
"I confirm Francis' words. Negotiations were very demanding and difficult, but today we know that we got the best both in terms of the service we asked for and in terms of price. We are now constantly increasing our requirements because this type of service matches exactly what we need. Our colleagues in the Czech Republic are able to respond quickly and reliably to all our requests." Viktor Gajodi, CEO Algotech Hungary
Managing an international company entails a number of tasks, which usually include the acquisition of appropriate information technology and the selection of relevant IT services. Moreover, everything can become significantly more complicated if the entrepreneur is pressed for time.
We provided a cloud-based solution based on Algotech's own data centre. We first moved the most performance-intensive websites from the original cloud environment. The application interface was then gradually moved to the new virtual environment.
Czech Airlines was faced with a decision on how to re-operate its corporate system and was looking for a reliable and cost-effective solution. Building its own infrastructure would be very expensive, both in terms of investment and operation.
