Severe performance problems at hotel booking agency
13th August 2015
Every company wants growth, but rapid growth can cause its own problems as an online Hotel Booking business discovered when its core system started to stutter under the load. Business growth has been dramatic and the plan is to replace the website to accommodate the new load levels but what was needed was some breathing space. A chance conversation with an existing Advance7 customer led them to us for help. Within days we had analysed the problem and determined the cause to be several database issues. Working with the database and application team we identified opportunities to improve performance and cut the load, providing the breathing space needed to develop the new site.
