The PGA of America is currently using Peak 10's tailored solution to provide their core infrastructure and to deploy to its ticketing, admissions, and scoring systems.

The renowned golfing association is utilizing the American company’s cloud computing and data center services to monitor and manage data replication and provide infrastructure for their America’s Championship applications.

Sean Walker, PGA director of Internet systems, highlighted the service that the Charlotte-based cloud computing company had provided. "Peak 10 has consistently provided the uptime and reliability needed for The PGA of America's most mission-critical applications," he said.

"Through the use of its cloud services for systems at our Championships, we have been able to add scalability to our high-volume applications as needed, while increasing overall system reliability through redundancy across multiple data centers."

Along with the provided cloud services, The PGA of America has also opted for Peak 10's burstable bandwidth. This solution provides added network capacity in order to handle traffic spikes on its website.

Vice president and general manager of Peak 10 Louisville, Matt Phillips, explained the reasons behind the PGA deciding to use their service. "We have worked with The PGA of America for many years, and its migration to our cloud platform was a natural step for its maintaining critical applications."

"Our team is excited to work alongside such a well-known entity in the sports world. We know how important it is for golf enthusiasts worldwide to have access to PGA sites," admitted Philips.

Peak 10 will also offer the golfing association added protection through geo-redundancy, while using their campus in Charlotte, N.C, as a failover site to the primary system at its Louisville-based technology campus.

Walker concluded to commend the reliability of the data center provider; "The overall reliability of the Peak 10 cloud infrastructure is a key element in helping us deliver highly-visible solutions such as the scoring system for our premier events."
