Data center

The computer center as control center. A data center or computer center nowadays satisfies a lot of requirements for companies. More and more data is being managed and applications provided via clouds. These clouds are nothing other than external computer centers. T&N is heavily involved in the topics of internal or external computer centers.

Data center infrastructure
T&N deals with every aspect of a data center. The planning includes all of the components such as cooling, emergency power supply, access control, bandwidths for the connections, the link technology, type of networking, distribution of the software, etc.

Industry experts agree that now is the right time for a change – away from static structures towards a dynamic provision of applications.

Every solution is based on connections

Network components that are designed for a data center are different in that they have a modular operating system. Our partner Extreme Networks has an integrated and comprehensive security solution that can be used in any data center: the operating system XOS. Access to the network can be protected by standardised or customised mechanisms.
The traffic is also constantly analysed and appropriate countermeasures taken wherever necessary. On the one hand, the network equipment can try to ward off suspicious traffic. On the other hand, attackers are kept so busy that productive traffic can continue to flow unhindered. Technologies such as ClearFlow, CLI Scripting and Universal Port are used for this purpose.

These days, applications play a key role for almost every business process. The efficient provision of applications for employees at any place and at any time is one of the most important and most difficult jobs of IT. However, most IT departments are still implementing and installing applications even though industrial analysts rate the traditional provision of applications as too static and too costly. The reason: it is almost impossible to cope with the dynamic changes in today’s business environment using this traditional concept.

Virtualisation away from static structures towards the dynamic application

Virtualisation is still seen as the IT technology which will trigger a profound change in the coming decade. But server virtualisation alone is not enough to achieve a sustainable business benefit. Because IT has to exploit the entire potential offered by virtualisation: from a computer center with servers and applications right down to a desktop.
