SITA, the world’s leading service-provider of integrated IT business solutions and communication services for the air transport industry, released a free white paper in April 2010, which is now also available for download from the the Airport-Technology website.
Virtualization is one of today’s hottest IT topics and within the air transport industry it is already making an impact. Even though server virtualization is still in its infancy, it already promises to enable a substantial shift in the way IT is delivered over the next decade.
Within air transport, server virtualization could address a number of pressing issues, most notably significant cost savings and a sustainable means to cope with the explosion of data processing and storage required for today’s and tomorrow’s air travel. But its ability to efficiently manage IT operations dispersed over a wide geographical area also opens up a new lower cost model for managing IT infrastructure at outstations. It is a model that sharpens the competitive edge by enabling the faster roll-out of new IT-based services, improving up-time and enhancing service quality to customers and employees.
