To build a reliable business system, it needs to run on suitable hardware and networks.
Whether the systems are running on physical machines, virtual machines, on-premise, co-owned facilities, or in cloud; they need proper planning, architecture and attributes not just to support the requirements at time but should also be future proof for their lifecycle.
System Architecture: The system architecture is designed with reference to best practices, recommendations from OEM, business expectations, able to integrate with other systems, and to be able to accommodate future growth.
Best Practices: Our architects design the systems with System Oriented Architecture, which ensures that the components are loosely coupled and well defined. This helps in replacing parts of the system (hardware or software).
Scalability: The components are chosen with scaling-up in mind, when needed the processors, RAM, and storage can be increased. Wherever possible the systems can be scaled-out (more nodes can be added to share the load).
Back-Ups, Disaster Recovery, and Business Continuity: The systems are designed to be backed up periodically and arrangements are made to bring them online in case of failure or when in need of rollbacks. The systems can be mirrored on to the cloud to take the place when the primary service goes down.
Virtualization: Virtualization brings a lot of great features like quick provisioning of systems, changes in system configuration, and manage the access at the micro-level. Our consultants are trained and certified in technologies like VMWare that can add extra safety to the systems using fail-over and high availability features.
Manageability: The systems are configured to log events that can be used to find root causes, can report if a server is running more load than designed for or if attention is needed for some issue about to occur.
Our system architects can help you implement the right architecture using a combination of on-premise, private cloud, hybrid cloud, or all cloud solution.
