Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates has standardised its hardware on HP to increase reliability across its infrastructure, the Dubai hotel said this week.

The project was handled by the vendor's local partner NTS and involved the deployment of HP's ProLiant servers, StorageWorks MSA storage area networks (SANs), Compaq desktop and notebook PCs, and various models of its LaserJet printer range.

The implementation, which finished in July last year, took around six months to complete and cost in the region of US$600,000, according to NTS.

Of particular importance to the hotel were the ProLiant DL380 servers deployed in its data centre; dual clusters are used to support the hotel's property management system, which operates on the Oracle 9i Real Application Cluster (RAC) database.

Separate clustered solutions support the hotel's point-of-sale system and file and print services; a series of additional servers run other applications such as the financial management system and e-mail and collaboration software.

The hotel said the clusters allow the operations of any one server to fail over to another should a problem occur.
