Data processing centers

  • 1 Designing of computing infrastructure

    Designing of computer infrastructure involves offering the following services:

    • Consulting in the field of computing infrastructure

    - technical audit;
    - determination of a concept for construction and development of infrastructure;

    • Comprehensive design

    - development of technical assignment for design;
    - selection of architecture of solution, platforms and technologies; ;
    - selection and calculation of configuration of software and hardware; ;
    - coordination of specifications and delivery timeline;
    - development of technical and detailed design documents according to requirements of regulatory documents;
    - working out recommendations on operation of the system;

    • Proof-of-concept design

    - creating a prototype system
    - holding experimental trials;
    - elaboration of the main design solutions

  • 2 Implementation of computing complexes

    Implementation of computing complexes involves implementation of the project in question in three main areas:

    • Introduction

    - testing of equipment used in the system;
    - delivery, installation and configuration of equipment and software;
    - experimental operation and acceptance;
    - integration of solution to be implemented with other subsystems;
    - documentation of solution to be implemented in compliance with regulatory documents;

    • Support

    - warranty and post-warranty service support;
    - informational and technical support of commercial operation;
    - consulting on matters of further development;

    • Project management

    - planning of resources and work under the project;
    - allocation and control of status of project tasks;
    - control over adherence to time and quality parameters of the project.

  • 3 Consolidation of servers and applications

    Consolidation of servers and applications results in transfer of functional load from standalone and disparate data storage and processing systems onto powerful specialized servers.
    As a result of implementation of this solution, the company will obtain:
    decreased quantity of equipment used;
    reduced scope of work related to administration and support of systems;
    saving costs on support of IT infrastructure;
    reduced number of licenses for server in use and, accordingly, reduced costs on their purchase and prolongation;
    higher reliability of data storage and processing systems in use;
    higher level of specialization and lower requirements to qualifications of personnel thanks to transfer from using servers of disparate manufacturers to a single product.

  • 4 Standby computing centers and cluster solutions

    Creating a standby computing center enables a company to avoid risks associated with disruption of operation of the main data processing center (DPC) due to contingency. Thus, the company is secured from a threat of disruption of the core business processes related to use of information technology. A cluster solution is often enough for solving local service problems. Using such solutions is less costly than creating a standby computing center. In practice, the two methods are generally combined for protection of operability of computing infrastructure.
    Using standby computing centers and clusters enables the company:

    • to improve reliability of data storage;
    • to minimize risks associated with failure of software and hardware;
    • to ensure protection of the core business processes from unforeseen failures in operation of information systems;
    • to avoid financial and property losses due to interruption of the company's business;
    • to perform maintenance and modernization of IT infrastructure without having users' work suspended.

  • 5 Data storage systems

    Data storage systems (DSS) ensure reliable storage of information and provide corporate information systems with free access to such information at any given time.
    Within implementation of a project of construction of DSS, Compulink delivers all the components required for creating a full value data storage system. For example, acquisition and storage of information is implemented based on using state-of-the-art disk arrays and tape libraries of the world's leading manufacturers in this field.
    Unification of data storage devices and creating an integral complex of DSS involve using specialized technological solutions - SAN (Storage Area Network) and NAS (Network Attached Storage). SAN is orientated to the high speed Fibre Channel technology, with the connection distance up to hundreds of kilometers and data rates at hundreds of megabytes. NAS solutions are dedicated file servers, which are connected to local networks and exercise access irrespective of an operating system or a platform used. It is possible to build data storage networks based on combination of the two types of solutions.
    Equally important for optimization of operations with data arrays is efficient construction of the entire complex of DSS. The specialists of the Compulink Group are ready to provide assistance in solving this problem. Owing to thorough elaboration of the project as well as using specialized data backup and archiving solutions and software enhancing the efficiency of data communication and arrangement at construction of DSS, the Customer's company will have a highly efficient data storage system, which will safely keep valuable corporate information.
