Microsoft Azure and SmartHOTEL are Helping hotels to focus on their guests, with the benefits of revenue increase, SmartHOTEL believes in a highly connected world of integrated technologies combined with tailored service. By creating smart and simple software, its team of hospitality professionals and developers is solving the distribution challenges of more than 2,000 hotel partners.

“Using Microsoft Azure to host SmartHOTEL’s applications enabled us to help even more hoteliers without worrying about the underlying technical infrastructure. The tools provided by Azure give us insight and provide input for strategic decisions.”

Past Situation

In the past, SmartHOTEL hosted applications and services in on-premises datacenters. The problem with such infrastructures is that it is difficult and expensive to scale and be highly available. In most cases, it was also a time-consuming and labor-intensive process for SmartHOTEL. As a result of its rapidly growing user base and regulations relating to security, the company was quickly confronted with the challenge of being both scalable and secure.

Microsoft Azure Solution

SmartHOTEL chose Microsoft Azure, converting all applications and processes running on virtual machines to processes that could be hosted in the cloud. Azure SQL Databases give SmartHOTEL a fully redundant system, the ability to quickly recover from outages by failing over to other nodes, and flexible backup and performance options. Azure Load Balancer, Traffic Manager, and firewalls segment traffic to SmartHOTEL's back-end services in a logical way, and Azure Key Vault enhances security.

Microsoft Azure Benefits
  • Microsoft Azure provides greater insights into what is happening to SmartHOTEL’s services and
    how they are being used (telemetry data).
  • Using Azure gives SmartHOTEL more time to focus on creating value for its clients instead of
    being busy maintaining and extending infrastructure.
