Seoul, Korea, August 14 (Korea Bizwire) – The nationwide heat wave is causing the economy and industry to fear a massive power shortage and possible blackout. The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy has issued emergency countermeasures to prepare for an incident in which the electric power reserve ratio drops to a certain critical level.
Computer and network systems that manage a network of servers are most vulnerable to possible blackouts since secondary damages are caused by system failures resulting from blackouts. Such damages can be catastrophic for companies that offer services based on data, and require necessary measures to prevent such occurrences.
Companies that supply music sources to various stores online are particularly susceptible to these problems. In order to supply commercial establishments with music a stable server is required, and because these services supply tens of thousands of stores with different background music, even the shortest failure in the server can cause great losses.
As a solution, the ‘Rhyme Duck’ service provided by Wantreez Music Inc. has adopted a dual system using cloud servers to prevent system failure and subsequent damages. In emergencies, the cloud server manages the system in place of the main server, and the cloud server will supply stores with music sources to prevent damages caused by blackouts. The dual system backed up with cloud servers will provide a foundation for the stable supply of music even during blackouts.
