Swire Hotels leads with cloud based approach to delivering Opera – August 2010, Bristol.
Swire Hotels UK, part of the Hong Kong based Swire Properties group has successfully completed a project to deploy Micros Fidelio’s Opera V5 product upon a private cloud platform (with Citrix XenApp 6) to all four of their UK based properties. Steve Walker of SBC PureConsult worked with the IT staff of Swire Properties to design and implement a data centre hosted virtualisation platform running VMware vSphere ESXi4, in order to concentrate all database and presentation functions within a secure and resilient centralised cloud platform.
The project used a variety of client devices including Wyse C10LE terminals to deliver Opera throughout the properties, without needing to manually install any part of the PMS system locally.
