In this era,the age of digital
accessibility has been overpowering each & every outsourcing firm. Whether
it may be a IT firm or any Governmental organizations, each of them needs a
personalized storage plans to store their data, for that it is very crucial to
know about an efficient & substantial data centre solution techniques, as
these information's are way more sensitive to be leaked out.
Therefore to keep all the data secure
, data centers gives the best solution and are highly recommended.
- What data center is all about!
For the use of collecting data,
storing , processing , distributing and allowing access data centers are
designed in such a way that they are placed at centralized locations where
computing and networking equipment's are concentrated. Data centers might have
had one room sized supercomputer during the early days of computers. But as the
time has passed equipment's got easier access by getting compact and
affordable, and thereby increasing the demands of data processing .All these
data in servers in clustered form and their related equipment can be arranged
in a room or in entire building depending on the requirements . Talking about
all the well established firms, they have a great set of raw data and
information about their staff, projects, clients etc ,which they definitely
don’t want to disclose, hence for such purpose data centers are perfect to meet
the desired need by providing a well planned data center solution technique
. Data centers are the most well organized energy consuming facility which
give continuous ceaseless remote access of different clients and their
information through one server.
ISOURSE helps you to tackle such
problems by giving you an optimum solution for the same .
- How we provide solution to a compact data
A well planned server room can be
executed through a balanced investment in the facility and equipment housed.
Also a well-balanced use of the location “white space”, or usable space for IT
equipment is also compulsory .
infrastructure of a data center is essential as it gives the holistic view of a data center's performance
so that energy, equipment and floor space are used as efficiently as possible.
are various different attributes which are to be kept in mind so that there is
optimum utilization of space, proper air circulation as air circulation plays a
major role in data centers and if not planned properly then maybe the whole
data center may get affected, below are some important points on the Physical
Infrastructure that are mandatory to be kept in mind before planning a
very basic and important point to keep in mind for planning is that racks must be placed in
such an order that the flow of cold air & hot air is proper and
condensation doesn't takes place and if the gases gets mixed up then the
moisture may cause Server to shut down.
- Then comes the flow of clear power supply
which should be proper so as to protect the servers from immediate breakdown,
hence allowing a particular run time to protect data loss.
- Humidity can also cause a great loss
to the servers therefore it is very important to provide all the servers with
the best humidity control solution.
- In data centers, servers are placed
above raised floor so that electrical wiring and other services can gets
arranged below the raised floor and also on the ceiling as per the design.
- Special electrostatic mats should be
used inside the server area to protect the racks from external elements like
dust, germs etc. Also proper electrostatic flooring is done in server rooms.
should be allotted in such a manner that even in sudden miss-happening, the allotted human resource can enter and
rectify the errors.
- Since server rooms store very
sensitive data and it needs a proper security and surveillance system. For that
every aisle should have security cameras and entry in server room should be
monitored through biometric system. IT rooms are meant to keep a check on fire system,
surveillance system so as to monitor them at regular interval of time.
something happens to the valuable electronic components in the server room, it
can cause great loss to the business hence for the protection fire safety
should be kept in mind ,there should be a Fire detection system capable of
distinguishing between a gas leak in the cooling system and the smoke from a
fire, a fire alarm with strobe lights and sirens to alert every one of the need
to evacuate the building, portable fire extinguishers installed in the proper
locations to help server engineers to escape if an exit is blocked by fire, and
an emergency power-off switch to shut off all electrical devices with the push
of a button.
On the other hand data center modernization makes expectations easier to achieve because
managers can take advantage of new technology to fulfill them. In fact, data
center automation puts the entire organization on the same page and reducing
departmental space, errors and extraneous manual labor while delivering a high
return on investment and cost savings. Newer equipment is easier and less
expensive to operate, uses less energy, and is less likely to break down and
cause an outage.
Below are some points that should be kept in mind while setting up IT
infrastructure of the data center
- IT security is a multi-discipline
subject requiring a number of different skills sets and knowledge areas.
- IT firewall protects computer systems from the dangers posed by an internet connection.The specific purpose of a firewall is to prevent unauthorized access to the computer systems it is configured to protect.
- Load balancingis a process by which workloads, typically requests from your website, are balanced and distributed across multiple servers and it refers to efficiently distributing incoming network traffic across a group of back-end servers.
- Routers are devices
used to connect different network segments and operate at the OSI Network
layer. Routers also include some security in the form of Access
Control Lists (ACLs) which drop packets based on pre-defined rules, stateful
-inspection and packet filtering.
- Most switches operate at the Data Link layer (layer 2)
of the OSI model (although newer models are now moving up to the Network Layer)
and are the basis of most Ethernet based local networks. Routing is based on
the MAC addresses of devices connected to the switch.
- In Network Architecture is a set
of computer networks. For up to 10 computers peer to peer network architectures
is required. Client-server architecture are used to help provide resources to
multiple users. It may have one or more network administrators.
- Cabling within a data
center may be either structured or unstructured.AC/DC power, ground, copper and
fiber optic are the main types of network cabling used in data centers.The
cabling used in a structured wiring design is specified by the bandwidth
requirements of the system and is tested to ensure proper performance.An
unstructured cabling system is inherently unreliable and may result in extended
