Mission Critical Financial Data Centre
With ‘Redundant’ Protection
Following a series of mergers, the client conducted a global assessment of their IT infrastructure to ensure compliancy with SARBANES-OXLEY and improve efficiency. As a result it was decided that the European data centres required extensive upgrading.
The solution installed by AIT provided a Raritan Dominion KX II KVM-over-IP switch in each rack with Virtual Media support to remotely upload files and maintain servers without having to enter the data centre.
The KX IIs are integrated into Raritan’s CommandCenter® Secure Gateway (CCSG) to provide a single portal into Travelers IT Assets. This ensures that all access is logged and authenticated through Active Directory® services.
To meet the second part of the brief from AIT recommended that Raritan’s Dominion PX intelligent rack level power distribution units (PDUs) were installed so that accurate real live data on power consumption and heat output could be collected and reported using Power IQ management software.
The client has seen real savings as a result of implement the data centre infrastructure management technology in the form of intelligent PDUs and secure KVM switches. It has also helped their IT and Facilities teams communicate.
