Venue Management Systems

Backup and Fast Access

Venue Management is designed to work in different ways to ensure the best resilience, speed and access permitted by your budget.

 

Single server on internet

Advantages:

 

Venue Management is hosted on Venue Toolbox’s servers. These are configured as 2 dedicated servers which back each other up, at our Internet Service Provider in London for resilience. They are also backed up securely offsite.

 

This is the lowest capital cost for a club as the club does not have to purchase, configure and maintain their own server.

 

Members of the public have rapid access to purchase tickets and shop items online as the servers are directly connected at GB/s to the internet.

 

Disadvantage:

 

Access to Venue Management for club staff is through the club’s internet connection which may not be very fast or reliable.

 

Single server at club

Advantages:

 

Access to Venue Management for club staff is fast as the server is on the same local network as them.

 

Disadvantages:

 

No resilience in case of server failure.

 

Backup strategy must be maintained by the club.

 

The server must be maintained by the club.

 

Access by members of the public will be through the club’s internet connection so is likely to be very slow and will slow down internet use for club staff.

 

Server at club and on internet

Venue Management is hosted both on Venue Toolbox’s servers at our ISP in London, and in house at the club. Data is automatically synchronised between the two.

 

Advantages:

 

Multiple servers for resilience.

 

Multiple backup strategy.

 

Members of the public have rapid access to purchase tickets and shop items online as the servers are directly connected at GB/s to the internet.

 

Staff members at the club have rapid access to their own server.

 

Should the internet connection at the club fail, the system will still be accessible.

 

Disadvantage:

 

More expensive to set up and maintain

 

 

The Backup and Fast Access option on the price list must be selected if the club chose to use hosting on Venue Toolbox’s three servers at our Internet Service Provider.
