Converged infrastructure is combining server, storage, and networks into a single framework, help to transform the economics of running the datacenter thus accelerating the transition to IP storage to help build infrastructures that are “cloud-ready”. The combination of storage and compute into a single entity is known as converged storage.
Converged infrastructure operates by grouping multiple IT components into a single, optimized computing package. Components of a converged infrastructure may include servers, data-storage devices, networking equipment and software for IT infrastructure management, automation and orchestration. Organizations use converged infrastructure to centralize the management of IT resources, to consolidate systems, to increase resource-utilization rates, and to lower costs. Converged infrastructures foster these objectives by implementing pools of computers, storage and networking resources that can be shared by multiple applications and managed in a collective manner using policy-driven processes.
Green Torrent, being an HP Authorized Channel Partner is capable of implementing such IT infrastructure Solutions.
In computing, virtualization is the creation of a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, such as a hardware platform, operating system (OS), storage device, or network resources. Virtualization can be viewed as part of an overall trend in enterprise IT that includes autonomic computing, a scenario in which the IT environment will be able to manage itself based on perceived activity, and utility computing, in which computer processing power is seen as a utility that clients can pay for only as needed. The usual goal of virtualization is to centralize administrative tasks while improving scalability and overall hardware-resource utilization. With virtualization, several operating systems can be run in parallel on a single central processing unit (CPU). This parallelism tends to reduce overhead costs and differs from multitasking, which involves running several programs on the same OS.
Why Virtualize ?
Virtualization allows an IT manager to manage systems with more flexibility and control, at a lower cost, with added security. Disaster recovery plans are a built in part of virtualization because virtualized images can recover all of a systems’ servers. Virtualization also allows a manager to set up multiple systems, easily, at a faster rate that also reduces costs.
Flexibility and Control: Virtualization is an extremely flexible option because it allows IT managers to expand, shrink or move the virtual computer without modifying the hardware. With virtualization data can be moved without affecting access to the data. Data is no longer bound to a physical hard drive like a desktop which gives companies more flexibility to grow their data field or change in their file storage environment.
Environmentally Friendly: Virtualization reduces the number of servers a company uses which decreases the energy it takes to operate and cool the servers. Without virtualization many data centers run at only a fraction of their capacity and thus are very inefficient at converting electricity into IT work. Virtualization reduces energy use by helping systems run at peak performance and optimize energy use. The reduced about of servers decreases energy while maintaining the same processing power. IT managers are also allowed to turn off computers from a centralized location in order to not waste electricity and money. All of this means a significant improvement in IT efficiency and reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
Cost Benefit: In computing, the benefits of virtualization are primarily reducing the hardware costs by upto 70%. Organizations can dramatically increase the efficiency of their existing data center through virtualization and potentially avoid the massive cost of building a new one. With virtualization, instead of buying new computers every 3-5 years, older computers can run new applications though the virtualized server. Sometimes companies only run one application on a server because they don’t want to risk the application failing and crashing the other computers. With virtualization, computers becoming a multi-tasking one and multiple servers into a computing pool that can adapt to large workloads. Another added cost benefit is a reduction in time it takes to send out patches and updates. Virtualized machines can be turned off from a centralized location which also reduces utility costs.
Virtualization is a long lasting solution to reduce the hassles IT managers face with managing, securing and upgrading computers. Through a virtualized system it’s easier to keep desktops updated and secure and the cost benefits and environmental benefits companies reap from upgrading to a virtualized system are an added bonus.
Green Torrent has the competence to assist customers to evaluate, migrate or deploy “virtualization”. Thus convert your IT Infrastructure into complete Virtual environment. Green Torrent has partnered with Microsoft, VMware & Citrix to provide Virtualization Solution to its customers.
Green Torrent explores and addresses the key elements associated with designing a Data Centre incorporating the key infrastructure elements of the physical infrastructure, electrical distribution systems, air-conditioning, data cabling and building support systems. It concludes with a comprehensive case study exercise that leads delegates through the design steps from initiation to commission, covering the business decisions, design scope and implementation phases that need to be addressed throughout the design configuration process
Structured cabling is the design and installation of a cabling systems that will support multiple hardware uses systems and be suitable for today’s needs and those of the future. Green Torrent has proven its structured cabling capabilities by accurately installing the system to customer requirements of today and of tomorrow. The system can be catered for and whatever hardware you choose to add will be supported.
Green Torrent’s Structured cabling design and installation is governed by a set of standards that specify wiring data centers, offices, and apartment buildings for data or voice communications using various kinds of cable, most commonly CAT5e, CAT6, and fiber optic cabling and modular connectors. These standards define how to lay the cabling in various topologies in order to meet the needs of GT’s customers, typically using a central patch panel , from where each modular connection can be used as needed. Each outlet is then patched into a network switch for network use or into an IP or PBX telephone system patch panel.
Lines patched as data ports into a network switch require simple patch cables at each end to connect a computer. Green Torrent follows color coded patch panel cables to identify the type of connection, though structured cabling standards do not require it except in the demarcation wall field.
Cabling standards demand that all eight conductors in Cat5e/6/6A cable are connected, resisting the temptation to ‘double-up’ or use one cable for both voice and data. IP phone systems, however, can run the telephone and the computer on the same wires.
Backup & DR
In IT, the process of backing up refers to copying and archiving of computer data so it may be used to restore the original after a data loss event.
Backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after its loss, be it by data deletion or corruption. Data loss can be a common experience of computer users.
The secondary purpose of backups is to recover data from an earlier time, according to a user-defined data retention policy, typically configured within a backup application for how long copies of data are required. Though backups represent a simple form of disaster recovery, and should be part of any disaster recovery plan, backups by themselves should not be considered a complete disaster recovery plan.One reason for this is that not all backup systems are able to reconstitute a computer system or other complex configuration such as a computer cluster, active directory server, or database server by simply restoring data from a backup.
Since a backup system contains at least one copy of all data considered worth saving, the data storage requirements can be significant. Organizing this storage space and managing the backup process can be a complicated undertaking. Green Torrent deploy a data repository model to provide structure to the storage with geographic redundancy, data security, and portability.
Before data are sent to their storage locations, they are selected, extracted, and manipulated. Many different techniques have been developed to optimize the backup procedure. These include optimizations for dealing with open files and live data sources as well as compression, encryption, and de-duplication, among others. Every backup scheme should include dry runs that validate the reliability of the data being backed up. It is important to recognize the limitations and human factors involved in any backup scheme.
Disaster recovery involves a set of policies and procedures to enable the recovery or continuation of vital technology infrastructure and systems following a natural or human-induced disaster. Disaster recovery focuses on the IT or technology systems supporting critical business functions, as opposed to business continuity, which involves keeping all essential aspects of a business functioning despite significant disruptive events. Disaster recovery is therefore a subset of business continuity.
Disaster recovery planning is a subset of a larger process known as business continuity planning and includes planning for resumption of applications, data, hardware, electronic communications (such as networking) and other IT infrastructure. A business continuity plan includes planning for non-IT related aspects such as key personnel, facilities, crisis communication and reputation protection, and should refer to the disaster recovery plan for IT related infrastructure recovery / continuity.
IT disaster recovery control measures can be classified into the following three types:
Preventive measures – Controls aimed at preventing an event from occurring.
Detective measures – Controls aimed at detecting or discovering unwanted events.
Corrective measures – Controls aimed at correcting or restoring the system after a disaster or an event.
Green Torrent facilitates its customers with a Good disaster recovery plan measures that dictate above three types of controls be documented and exercised regularly using so-called “DR tests”.
The word surveillance comes from a French phrase for “watching over” (“sur” means “from above” and “veiller” means “to watch”), and is in contrast to more recent developments such as sousveillance.
Surveillance is the monitoring of the behavior, activities, or other changing information, usually of people for the purpose of influencing, managing, directing, or protecting them. This can include observation from a distance by means of electronic equipment or interception of electronically transmitted information and it can include simple, relatively no- or low-technology methods such as human intelligence agents and postal interception.
Green Torrent delivers Surveillance solutions from renowned brands like ACTi & Mobotix.
