Generic Datacenter

A generic data center, also called a server farm, is a centralized repository for the storage, management and dissemination of data and information pertaining to a particular business. It is maintained as a specialized facility with restricted access and contains automated systems that constantly monitor server activity, web traffic, and network performance.

A data center must therefore keep high standards for assuring the integrity and functionality of its hosted business-critical computer environment. This is accomplished through redundancy of power, which includes emergency backup power supply, redundant data communications connections, environmental controls and security devices.

Key challenges:

  • Centralized Management of IT infrastructure
  • Redundancy of data for disaster recovery
  • Conduct maintenance work without any disruption to the rest of the network
  • Consolidation of Physical and virtual setup
  • Authenticated access to Technicians to the required Infrastructure
  • Heterogeneous Environment with multiplatform
  • Repeated crash testing and recovery
  • Vendor and external access
  • Control and Manage Power for optimization
  • Secured Remote Patch Updates and Fixes
  • Scalability of storage environment to accommodate the data growth
