Virtualization is a very popular way how to optimize the entire infrastructure and, due to a more extensive use of available tools and the separation of a virtual and physical layer, not only to significantly reduce ICT operational and investment expenditure but at the same time to deliver ICT services more flexibly and with higher availability.

Server virtualization provides you with the higher use of server performance and higher availability. It enables to achieve extensive cost savings as well as more stable and easily controllable operation. As a result,  the changes and migration in virtual infrastructure can run much more flexibly, safely and with minimum or zero requirements for server shutdown. Due to virtualization, server operation is independent of physical equipment.

Virtual desktops as distinct to classic PCs constitute cheaper, safer and much more efficiently manageable alternative. Virtualization of applications will enable you packaging, application distribution, easier patching, upgrades and testing.

Storage virtualization constitutes the possibility of consolidation, higher capacity usage, more efficient management, easy replications and migrations. By means of virtualization we can employ one source (under the notion of server we can imagine the entire server or its parts - processor, network card, data storage) for more than one operating system.

Virtual architecture  

 

Active elements

As to active technology in the field of data communications we prefer the world's leading manufacturers such as Cisco Systems a Hewlett-Packard. Our team of highly qualified experts is a holder of professional certifications and can design, install and operate data communication built on this technology. We are also ready to provide professional consultations, advice and service related to this technology.

Server systems

Flawlessly functioning server systems are the essence of enterprise information systems of any size. Apart from basic services including file sharing, equipment, addressing (DHCP/DNS), application distribution and administration we implement extensive solutions of directory systems, portal solutions and document libraries. In the area of server systems Vítkovice IT Solutions a.s. prefers particularly the systems of CISCO, DELL and Hewlett-Packard. We offer both performance servers and data storage systems. Our solutions are highly scalable, safe, available and based on open standards. They are intended for wide range of use - from workgroups through the most demanding enterprise applications. We conclude long term service contracts with our customers for local and remote server administration. We also design comprehensive server solutions depending on customer requirements and long term cost optimization, and we plan their future development.

Disk arrays

For many years, there has been a trend towards the consolidation of disk space into separate external disk arrays and subsequent sharing this space among the servers. This trend also very overlaps with the current trend of server virtualization. Another reason for using arrays is the creation of higher disk capacity than the form of a separate disk. Disk arrays use RAID technology (Redundant Array of Independent Disks). At the moment, the most used levels are 0.1, 5 and 6. Vítkovice IT Solutions a.s. has extensive experience in this field which is applied to the design of disk array solutions. The key aspect of disk array design is the applied technology of communication between a disk array and servers. Because of heavy demands on data speed and availability we offer Fibre Channel technology. Another applied technology is iSCSI (the communication using LAN infrastructure). Among new trends FCoE technology can also be included. We market the equipment of a number of world's manufacturers such as EMC, DELL, HP from the smallest disk systems intended for smaller businesses to highly specialized high availability equipment.

Backup systems

The main task of backup systems is a safe data backup and recovery for both local and remotely connected stations and servers. Backup data process can be initiated manually or automatically according to defined strategies. The characteristics of a good backup strategy are the ease of use, maximum use of time and the ease of data recovery. Another feature of backup systems is archiving that enables long term data storage. The time for which key data can be stored is basically limited by the lifetime of applied backup media which can be, in some cases, more than one hundred years. The services focus on the design and implementation of reliable backup systems, including backup policy, recovery plan and backup equipment configuration. Data backup is implemented within a given location, between remote locations as well as across continents.
