IT operations are a crucial aspect of most organizational operations. One of the main concerns is business continuity; companies rely on their information systems to run their operations. If a system becomes unavailable, company operations may be impaired or stopped completely. It is necessary to provide a reliable infrastructure for IT operations, in order to minimize any chance of disruption. Information security is also a concern, and for this reason a data center has to offer a secure environment which minimizes the chances of a security breach. A data center must therefore keep high standards for assuring the integrity and functionality of its
hosted computer environment.
Virtualization Technology: This can be used to minimize the size of number of server as well as the size of data center space. Operating System-level Virtualization is a server virtualization technology which virtualizes servers on an operating system (kernel) layer. It can be thought of as partitioning: a single physical server is sliced into multiple small partitions (otherwise called virtual environments (VE), virtual private servers (VPS), guests, zones, etc.); each such partition looks and feels like a real server, from the point of view of its users. company profile
Storage: Storage Solutions architecture works in a way that makes all storage devices available to all servers on a LAN or WAN. As more storage devices are added to NAS or SAN, they too will be accessible from any server in the larger network. In this case, the server merely acts as a pathway between the end user and the stored data. Storage Solutions can be in form of: Online storage, Backup, Archiving and Disaster recovery solutions.
Server: Server Solutions is the computer or device on a network that manages network resources. Servers are known to be very fault tolerant, for even a short-term failure can cost more than purchasing and installing the system. For example, it may take only a few minutes of down time at a national stock exchange to justify the expense of entirely replacing the system with something more reliable. To increase reliability, most of the servers use memory with error detection and correction, redundant disks, redundant power supplies and so on. Such components are also frequently hot swappable, allowing replacing them on the running server without
shutting it down. To prevent overheating, servers often have more powerful fans. As servers are usually administered by a qualified engineer, their operating systems are also more tuned for stability and performance than for user friendliness and ease of use.
Monitoring and Testing System: This is to provide monitoring software to monitor network, server, application and storage in data center. The monitoring solution will enable data center to have a proactive and reactive alert and down to root cause of the problem. Macro vision until micro insight is captured in single monitoring solution. The solution is also equipped with Quality Control solution where by Bank can do a functional and performance test before launching its product into production environment. This means solution integrity and quality will be increased and sharpen your competitive edge. Unified Service Delivery solution provides a single
horizontal infrastructure that spans a provider’s entire service portfolio. Doing this provides three main advantages to the business in general:
- Increases service and feature velocity
- Optimally utilizes capital and operating assets
- Helps ensure and secure the user experience Specific to IaaS (Infrastructure as a Services) offerings, the Unified Service Delivery solution enables providers to:
- Bring IaaS to market more quickly. Virtualization-aware intelligence is built into the key elements of the Unified Service Delivery solution.
- Reduce the cost of deploying IaaS and other services. The Unified Service Delivery solution incorporates consolidation and scalability features.
- Meet customers service-level and security requirements in IaaS offers. Quality of service (QoS), encryption, and secure partitioning technologies work in concert across the components of the Unified Service Delivery solution.
In addition, the Unified Service Delivery solution constructs IaaS offerings in a modular fashion on top of a baseline architecture that is not tied to any particular service. This had the added benefit of providing tremendous flexibility. Should the market for cloud computing services change, the underpinnings of the IaaS offer can be repurposed to support a substantially different service in response to shifting customer requirements. Similarly, that same baseline infrastructure can be extended to other services beyond IaaS, even while it continues to be used as the foundation of an IaaS service. More traditional hosting or colocation services can be delivered over this infrastructure. Or non-cloud services such as hosted collaboration services can be delivered alongside the IaaS offer but using the same infrastructure. This reduces overall capital costs, increases the utilization of the infrastructure, and simplifies the environment operationally.
