The Huawei Cloud implementation

Simple architecture diagram

As a leading connectivity marketplace in the travel industry, TravelgateX relies on cutting-edge technology to optimize its operations. 

The company's partnership with Huawei Cloud allows for seamless integration of advanced security measures, beginning with a first layer of Anti-DDoS attack protection provided by the platform. From there, traffic is routed to either managed Kubernetes clusters with Cloud Container Engine (CCE) or virtual machines with Elastic Cloud Server (ECS), both equipped with Auto Scaling policies and balanced across multiple Availability Zones (AZ) using Elastic Load Balance (ELB). This ensures high availability and optimal resource utilization through container orchestration with Cloud Container Engine (CCE). TravelgateX's use of Huawei Cloud's services is closely monitored through Cloud Eye Service (CES), Log Tank Service (LTS), and Application Operations Management (AOM), while Identity and Access Management (IAM) provides a secure environment for all operations. 

As the travel industry continues to evolve, TravelgateX remains committed to delivering best-in-class service, backed by innovative technology partnerships like Huawei Cloud.
