Res2 is a Netherlands based ground handling IT provider with its headquarters located in De Meern. The datacenter is hosted in Atlanta, USA, and the 24/7 support office is located in Portugal. iPort DCS is currently operational at nearly 400 airports worldwide and is still growing rapidly.
At Res2 we believe that software development is a craft. We take software development very seriously. Our staff are constantly aware of the fact that passenger handling is a very critical process. Everything we develop has gone through a design phase, monitored by experienced analysts. Once finished it runs through various test stages. Quality is further guaranteed by the test driven approach.
Apart from looking pretty, iPort has speed and efficiency in its genes. Every new bit of functionality is scrutinized to prevent a negative impact on scalability, availability or response times. We believe in a test driven approach and in the agile doctrine, and use it. We provide a new release every 3 weeks.
But running a reliable 7x24 large scale transaction system requires more than agile application development. It requires insight and awareness of what happens if things go wrong (and how to prevent that). It requires proper levels of logging, of tooling, a continuous awareness of scalability, performance and software quality. And last but not least, it requires an infrastructure that is understandable and scalable.
