Server Architecture

The Datacentre used by Tourplan Hosting Services is highly geared towards meeting the needs of even the most risk averse organisation. Technology deployed for Tourplan hosting includes a full virtual server environment, running on elite grade IBM Blade server infrastructure, complete with dedicated hardware firewall and networking.


All client data saved in the hosted environment is backed up within the hosting environment daily.This facilitates rapid recovery for most situations. A second off-site backup to an independent cloud based Backup facility provides complete disaster recovery options.

Disaster Recovery

Both the Datacentre and the Backup facility have redundant, geographically-spread replication facilities.

Information Security

UAC (user access controls) are provided in the form of RBAC and DAC (role based access control and discretionary access control), and are managed by Active Directory. Active Directory is PCI DSS, HIPPA and ISO27000 certified compliant. This means that Cobit5 standards of Information Systems Security are fully maintained. The Datacentre itself is also certified in terms of physical security and environmental controls to maintain the above listed benchmarks in its own right.
