Dell Enterprise Solutions have supported MakeMyTrip to achieve 30 percent improvement in site performance.
The Dell solution including Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers and Dell PowerVault storage was utilized to improve performance and high availability of its e-commerce site.
Besides benefiting from a virtualized infrastructure that helps improve operational efficiency for Makemytrip, the travel site has also reduced management time by 50 percent.
As part of the deal, MakeMyTrip consolidated its data center on Dell servers to outpace market growth within the expanding online travel sector in India. Dell in a statement said its new servers delivered better performance than rivals and could take more load without increasing density or energy consumption.
MakeMyTrip deployed Dell PowerEdge 12th generation servers to consolidate its data center infrastructure running the company’s private cloud. MakeMyTrip used Dell PowerVault direct attached storage to provide additional storage capacity for its database and server needs. PowerVault Storage is also used as network storage when data needs to be shared across the LAN environment.
The main benefit is that MakeMyTrip has experienced signiﬁcant energy eﬃciencies and space savings through maximizing its compute power on Dell PowerEdge R910 and R610 servers, which contributes to the bottom line.
The volume of traﬃc that the site can now support has increased, enabling the company to proactively pursue new customers. MakeMyTrip also selected Dell ProSupport with Mission Critical 4-Hour Onsite Response.
“When customers are searching for a particular travel package, they want highly targeted, quick results or they will simply go elsewhere. With high-performance hardware from Dell, our infrastructure is delivering 30 percent better performance to our site when compared with the existing hardware, which means we can serve our customers faster,” said Sanjay Kharb, vice president of IT, MakeMyTrip.com.
