Share Article

RepliWeb, a leader in enterprise Web content deployment solutions, today announced that Restaurant.com (http://www.Restaurant.com) has incorporated RepliWeb R-1 as the standard platform for improving and maintaining Web content and applications throughout its server farm.

RepliWeb R-1 mirrors and deploys Web content such as image, video, HTML and PDF files, .NET Web applications, as well as Windows2003/IIS6 Metabase, from Restaurant.com development and staging environments to its "24x7" production Web hosting farm. The system allows complete Web sites as well as "one file updates" to be published to servers co-located in local area networks or remote data centers under the full control of the operations team.

"Operating as an eCommerce site requires a highly stable, and reliable production environment. The financial consequences of site downtime, stale or inaccurate information are significant," said Adnan Ali, executive vice president of technology for Restaurant.com. "Keeping our Web hosting farm updated, in-sync and available to visitors has become more important with our aggressive growth plans. We began working with RepliWeb three years ago and they continue to play a critical role in helping us achieve the performance gains and operating stability required for our success."

RepliWeb R-1 updates are automatic or ad-hoc and occur with no service interruptions, which free Web server administrators to focus on other revenue generating projects. R-1 offers an extensive portfolio of features such as rollback, error detection and recovery, complete auditing and logging, pre/post replication scripting, extensive file include and exclude filtering and more.

Restaurant.com puts diners in touch with a variety of restaurants nationwide for dining information and as much as 60-percent savings on dining certificates. Restaurant.com helps restaurant owners at more than 7,500 restaurants promote the new and unique aspects of their businesses while providing diners with great value in a fun, new and cost effective way. The company adds eateries, bistros, cafes and other restaurant types to a national online network at a rate of 200 to 300 businesses every month.

The company's directory of restaurants features personalized descriptions of cuisine and menu items, as well as information about pricing, locale and hours of operation. Many restaurant descriptions also provide interior and exterior images of the establishment including 360-degree views. The constant growth in Web site traffic, the large number of new restaurants joining the company's network and the continuous stream of new Web site features require critical updates to Web content and applications.

"R-1 delivers significant reduction in Web farm operating costs and noticeable increase in Web site up-time through the improvement to the business process of moving data through the Content Life Cycle" said Garrick Herrmann, vice president of sales and marketing, RepliWeb Inc. "Through years of focusing on the emerging Web operations market we have engineered a solution with stability, purpose-built functionality, value and simplicity, which is unmatched in the industry. We are proud to have Restaurant.com as a loyal client for more than three years."
