The infrastructure consists of several inter-communicating elements. Wired and/or wireless interconnections need to be perfect and must meet every reliability and performance requirement. There are many solutions available on the market, whether for five users, for a company with several sites or for a university campus.
The server is the platform of the operating systems and the applications. It must be dimensioned in computing power and memory according to the use; virtualization, databases, CRM/ERP applications, or bespoke business applications. These parameters will determine its capacity to run the applications with the desired performance.
In view of the exponential increase of the volume of data to be preserved for companies, storage has become a major concern. The companies are highly dependent on it and each use corresponds to an adapted solution. Various technologies exist for storing virtual machines and/or files, or for generating several terabytes of data per day. The response must take account of the needs of performance and growth, and the availability of each use.
We had to replace our storage system and Connectis proposed an EMC system to us. This solution perfectly met our expectations in terms of value for money and service proposal. In 2014, we wanted to reinforce our infrastructure, so we naturally called on Connectis again.
The virtualization of the servers has revolutionised the way in which the IT infrastructures are managed by separating the hardware and software renewal cycles. These two components can now evolve separately according to the needs. The virtualization of the servers also enables enhanced consolidation, the installation of high availability and post-disaster recovery, and facilitates the backup procedures.
The operating system enables the applications to interact with the hardware layer of the infrastructure and with the network’s other pieces of equipment. It is therefore essential for the proper functioning of the applications. Connectis collaborates with several certified partners and can offer a wide range of services and solutions.
I have been a client for more than ten years, and Connectis has perfectly met my needs on every occasion. I am delighted with the tools installed and with the team in charge of my account.
The virtualization of each user’s computer enables to concentrate the entire infrastructure and to send all the company's datacentre. In addition to the centralization and security advantages, this solution gives indiscriminate access to the data and the applications by means of simple Internet access from anywhere in the world.
A converged infrastructure gathers several IT components into a single optimized solution. In order to master the automation and the orchestration of a converged infrastructure, several components are available, such as servers, data-storage devices, network equipment and software.
The Disaster Recovery Plan makes it possible, in the event of an IT infrastructure disaster, to switch the operation of applications necessary for the company’s survival to an emergency website and infrastructure.
The choice of the technical solutions will depend on the definition of the following two objectives (in minutes):
We also talk of a Continuity Plan (RPO = 0 and RTO = 0), when the client's demands require an immediate restart without any loss of data.
Security must be taken into account at each layer of the IT infrastructure and pursues various objectives:
By calling on Connectis, we were looking for a real “Partner” service that pays special attention to companies’ needs and proposes the most appropriate solution. The Connectis teams are highly experienced and offer an outstanding client relationship, thanks to the quality of service and their optimal reactivity. Each company needs a partner like Connectis, which is devoted to providing the best quality of service and which takes the time to understand our company culture and our situation.
