  • Production move to Cloud at Amazon: 16th December 2019

    RailData decided to migrate operation of all its central applications from current platform to Cloud. Amazon was selected as the cloud service provider, we will use the AWS platform in Frankfurt am Main. Our software developer, French IT company LUSIS manages the migration and will continue to provide support of the production. The advantage of the Cloud is that we will have large flexibility to increase (or decrease) computing resources as needed, we will not need to buy own hardware and system software and take care about updates or replacements.

  • New RailData Terms of Reference

    Berlin, 23.5.2019   -  RailData has completely revised its earlier Statutes and the result is new Terms of Reference (ToR). New ToR include several basic changes, e.g. detach of RailData Membership from Usage of RailData IT systems. It enables the new commercial model, which makes easier and cheaper for smaller railway undertakings to use our applications. Newly it will be also possible to use the aplications, without being RailData member. ToR also allows to develop some additional functions, required by only one or few Users (they need to finance it).
