AmbeInfotech experience in IT infrastructure services, networking, data centers and service delivery models help clients support the critical business systems for growth and operational excellence.



Server and Storage Architecture


Network Storage Architecture:

Refers to the physical and conceptual organization of a network that enables data transfer between storage devices and servers. It provides the backend for most enterprise-level operations and allows users to get what they need.



Network Architecture:

Refers to the way network devices and services are structured to serve the connectivity needs of client devices. Network devices typically include switches and routers. Types of services include DHCP and DNS.



Security:

With a massive surge in cyber-attacks and high reliance on technology in this digital age, ensuring the security of data and information have become a daunting task. Cyber threats are accelerating significantly even faster than the enhancements businesses are making. Computer networks have become bigger and their interconnectivity using a Wide Area Network (WAN) is worldwide due to globalization. It is hard for current IT security solutions to prevent cyber-attacks. According to Symantec’s 2019 Internet Security Threat Report (Volume 24), Formjacking attacks compromised 4800+ websites almost every month. Supply chain attacks also increased by 78% in 2019. Furthermore, more than 70 million records were also leaked or stolen due to poor configuration of S3 buckets.

We have many years of experience supporting, optimizing, securing and supporting mission-critical environments for many customers. AmbeInfotech virtualization advisers can accurately provide the right virtualization solution to meet your Back Office and IT requirements. As a leader in our field for server virtualization you can rely on us for:

  • Multi-vendor support for proper hardware and software selection
  • Fully testing virtual hosting software versions before execution
  • In-house or data center implementation
  • Disaster Recovery Solutions using virtualization backup and replication technology
  • Following and implementing best practices as set by each developer and manufacture


  • Why Virtualization?

    1. Consolidation

    Server virtualization conserves space through consolidation of hardware. It is common practice today to dedicate each server to a single or similar application. If several applications only use a small amount of processing power, the network administrator can consolidate several machines into one, two, or maybe a few servers instead of many.

    2. Hardware Independence

    Server hardware will ultimately fail or become obsolete. Installing legacy applications to a new or replacement server can be a difficult task with traditional physical Operating Systems installations. Virtualizing existing physical servers gives companies access to older legacy systems for archiving purposes. Virtualization also allows companies time to transition to new processes and parallel test with existing application processes without having to purchase additional hardware.

    3. Disaster Recovery

    Virtualization can help speed up recovery time, because it is easier to restore and start up a virtual machine on a host virtual server than rebuild a physical server from scratch. If virtual machine replication is used to a secondary spare server of similar or dissimilar hardware the recovery time can be 10-fold as the replicas can be restarted with a few clicks of a mouse. Replication and backup schedules can be setup to ensure that if failure occurs at the end of the day not a whole day’s worth of data is lost. Other technologies such as a Storage Area Networks (SANs) with de-duplication can be used if zero data loss is required. SANs also allow for live migration from virtual host server to server so that that host server can be taken offline for maintenance and upgrades with zero network downtime.

    4. Which Virtual Platform is the Best?

    VMware is the leader of server virtualization but Microsoft’s Hyper-V solution is closing the gap. With the release of Windows Server 2016 with Hyper-V Microsoft has made the decision that much harder. We have extensive experience in deploying vSphere and Hyper-V and we can determine what platform is best for your company. We welcome the opportunity to learn more about your unique environment to provide you with an unbiased opinion on which platform is right for you and your organization.



    Platform Management:

    We have a team of highly trained and experienced consultants, engineers and platform administrators who will consult, plan, maintain, recommend, and implement the best practices & solutions which are in tune with your business, application, and infrastructure needs in order to achieve optimum business results.
