Six Tips for Reducing Downtime in Travel and Transport
Whether it’s a security system, baggage handling application, order or vessel tracking or even the air conditioning/HVAC system, downtime to applications supporting travel and transportation can throw off precisely timed schedules for travelers and shipments alike. For example, downtime to an airport security system can result in a security breach that empties the airport or terminal and disrupts flight schedules.
In shipping and transportation, lost data about shipment status and orders can result in significant delays delivering goods. To keep up with the speed of movement in today's global economy, the information systems supporting travel and transportation must be available around-the-clock.
The best way to provide this kind of always-on availability is to build redundancy into vital systems, and adhere to best practices for maintaining application availability. This paper outlines six key tips for keeping travel and transportation logistics applications running without interruption.
