SKAI TV station, in the context of its need to upgrade its infrastructure, selected Data Center infrastructure designed and installed by Algosystems using HP servers solutions as well as EMC Storage.
The initial aim, which was achieved, was the smooth transition of the TV station to the new environment, as well as its uninterrupted operation throughout the project.
ISOPLUS has 26 years of experience and excellence in the representation, distribution and promotion of natural dietary supplements in Greece, holding a leading position in the Greek market through an extensive sales network.
The company trusted Algosystems to upgrade the company’s Data Center systems infrastructure by using cisco server equipment in a virtual environment, ensuring the performance, availability and integration of new business processes and tools.
With the proposed restructuring in conjunction with corrections to the configuration of the network equipment, the existing layout was unloaded, the information flow to and from users was clarified, and it was possible to correct the problems that appear in Active Directory and achieve an acceptable access performance to system services and applications.
GREEK YELLOW PAGES
Greek Yellow Pages has been known for 47 years for its printed catalog, while it has turned to Digital for several years now. With over 3.8 million unique visitors per month at xo.gr and with more than 7 million visits to the site per month, it continues to bring together consumers and businesses.
The implementation of Algosystems for Greek Yellow Pages was based on Cisco’s integrated Datacenter proposal, Cisco Unified Computing System, a next-generation Data Center platform.
The implementation included Cisco Nexus Datacenter switches, the necessary L3 and SAN options for LAN and SAN, and Cisco Fabric Interconnect switches that form the server interface between them and the outside world and provide the solution with the Cisco UCS Manager management environment. Also, a Cisco UCS Blade Center system suitable for the infrastructure of computer systems and resources and a central data storage system.
The implementation of the Fabric Interconnect interface with Nexus switches was based on multiple 10G interfaces, while all systems are managed through Cisco UCS Manager.
With this integrated solution, the footprint of Datacenter was reduced, all operating procedures were simplified while it has gained momentum for future growth. An approximately 25% reduction in operating costs has been achieved while the virtualized unified UCS environment brought other benefits to the areas of disaster recovery and business continuity and productivity improvements.
