Lufthansa systems provide IT for the airline & aviation industry, based in Frankfurt, they employ over 3,000 people based in 14 countries. They needed to develop a system to distribute mapping data to pilots across the globe. Flight charts are only current for 4 weeks and pilots are only given 10 days to download updates. It needed to be scalable to cope with huge peaks in demand of up to 800MB of data being downloaded by over 7,000 pilots at the same time. A VMware Hybrid Cloud solution enables them to utilise a public cloud solution with their existing private cloud, increasing scalability & agility while ensuring data security.
