All Existing HPEUX Hardware, EVA and x86 Server Including Blades needed refresh with new HPE Server and SAN Storage Appliance. Also, migrate all existing applications, server with Microsoft Server 2019 under the VMWare Hypervisor Infrastructure Solution.
The Infrastructure is hosted in On-Premises Data Center- SURAT
The client also required a robust backup solution, which should have Disk to Disk & D2D2T for their entire virtualized infrastructure and physical infrastructure. Move HPUX to Oracle Linux OS – Oracle Database and application Servers.
What Creative Infotech suggested:
We had implementedPhysical and Virtualize infrastructure using VMWare hypervisor and Oracle Linux Enterprise Edition Platform.
We had implemented backup infrastructure solution using VEEAM Backup Software, and Target Storage are HPE StoreOnce Backup Appliance which is gives best performance with Backed up data with deduplication and compression using HPE StoreOnce based Platform Engine.
2xPhysical Appliance for Oracle Linux Edition with OS Cluster,
3xVMWare Node withHPE DL380 Gen10 which are connect to HPE MSA 2052 SANStorage via SAN Switch for their workloads.
1 x Backup Server with VEEAM Backup Software Solutions: (A) 1 x HPE StoreOnce 3620 Backup Appliance for Backup data direct to Disk. (B) 1 x HPE LTO8 Tape Autoloader for Backup Archival for Long time.
2 x HPE SN300b SAN Switch for back-bond Fiber connectivity for data’s
2 x CISCO 3850 12P 10G Switch for Server and storage Backend Network Connectivity.
How our solutions helped the client:
It enhanced the ease of customers. The x86 Server was very old and was causing bigger problems. With the change to Microsoft Server 2019, their operations became quicker, and as a result productivity increased. SUMUL is a leading dairy, hence, it deals in a great amount of data. It required backup solutions that are robust and strong. Our backup solutions helped the dairy to store data efficiently. We set up a very simplified setup and configuration of new server deployment. Effortless management of their entire infrastructure. A fully secured DC site for
Site having all physical infrastructure with multiple Integrity and x86 servers and Storages, which can difficult to manage due to multiple management console. While failure of any single server it will take much time to resume their production activities.
Data Backup is very difficult and long backup window.
