The following section provides information on hosting and PTV xServer internet URLs.
PTV xServer internet services are located in various Microsoft® Windows® Azure data processing centres to avoid potential time delays caused by network disruptions or congestion, particularly in the case of intercontinental server requests.
Each data processing centre offers one or more Cloud Services, also called Clusters. There are usually three different Cloud Services for each map that is hosted in the data processing centre. These three services are named test, integration and productive system.
The PTV xServer internet system landscape offers you a three-tier environment architecture:
Available to all users to test PTV xServer internet. The test environment is used to make new versions available or to test solutions to problems if necessary.
You will always find the new, officially approved version of PTV xServer here. You can access the integration environment by purchasing PTV xServer internet. It is used to develop applications. Apart from during the update phases, it is identical to the productive environment.
This environment contains the PTV xServer internet services for productive operations that are used by end users. PTV AG ensures availability as described in the SLA concluded upon purchase.
If a new version of PTV xServer is available, the three development environments will be updated in a cycle, which is usually 4 weeks.
Within one Cloud Service there are two or more instances with PTV xServer available. Load balancer divides the last incoming requests between different instances and therefore optimizes the performance.
You have to change the xServer internet URL and subdomain in accordance with your desired cloud service. All subdomains are based on the wildcard certificate *.cloud.ptvgroup.com and are exclusively available via HTTPS. Furthermore, the subdomain consists of three parts separated by hyphens:
Based on these details, the URL is then built as follows:
