NATS (National Air Traffic Services) is the main air traffic navigation service provider in the UK, they provide air traffic services to fifteen airports in the UK, including Heathrow and Gatwick, and handle 2.2 million flights each year. We have been working with NATS for ten years and now host eight websites for them. It is crucial that NATS’ sites are highly available so that people are always able to access vital information, even in dramatic website traffic peaks, such as in 2010 when an Icelandic ash cloud caused major disruption to air traffic and large numbers of people were seeking solutions.
Moore-Wilson have implemented a dedicated hosting solution for NATS that provides the high levels of availability that they require. We have also worked with their Communications Team and Information Systems Teams to make improvements to overall user experience. Moore-Wilson has made a number of recommendations about caching and suggestions to improve performance that have been quickly taken on board by NATS and applied across their websites.
