Yuttasart Nitipaichit, PhD Assistant Vice President, Data Center Technology Department, CAT Telecom PCL.

The?Olympic Council of Asia?(OCA), Ministry of Tourism and Sports (Thailand) and the Sports Authority of Thailand have joined forces to get the hosting of the events. In addition, IRIS Cloud is assigned to plan and install system e.g. Servers, Software, Hardware and Storage, to support the live broadcasting to worldwide audiences in 45 countries and also support the Data Management during the event e.g. Registration system and the Result Announcement.

“By using the IRIS Cloud throughout the event, it will be considered as a pay-per-use service. The organizers of The Asian Beach Games 2014 can access to the Server and Storage in IRIS Cloud which is a temporary service during the event. The IRIS Cloud staff will set up servers in Phuket which is where the event is being held and the staff will also set up the redundant site at Nonthaburi to manage internal data of the competitions e.g. the registration system and the result announcement. This will create stability in the broadcasting by having the redundant site in case that the primary site at Phuket is down, the redundant site at Nonthaburi will be workinginstead of the primary site immediately, so it won’t affect the live broadcasting or other usage” said PhD Yuttasart.

With confident and proven of its efficiency, IRIS Cloud is selected to set up network system for The Asian Beach Games 2014 which is the international event and need to meet the international standard of OCA and also the acceptance from the Organization of board of directors of the event or internal administrative that is chaired by the Prime Minister, taking care by the key official of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports (Thailand) and the Sports Authority of Thailand. Although it is the ad hoc event that last only 10 days, it is the world class event. So the organizers had to set the high qualifications by selecting the efficient and worthwhile facilitator that needs budget at THB5.17 million. However, by using the IRIS Cloud, they can save cost of IT investment up to 80% and it suits the pay-per-use requirement.

PhD Yuttasart also said that “The implementation of this Cloud system has fulfilled all the requirements in term of traffic control, network that has access to the organization, protocol authorization policy and the applications that need to access to the network. Moreover, we also set up a “security service” to clear all disguised traffic that access to the network to avoid the server down by the attacking of Denial of Service Attack (DoS). We also impose a Business Continuity Management policy and Risk Management when facing an emergency issue which affects the service and important products”
