The evolution path taken by the Army found Italtel as a leader in technology infrastructure renewal, through a "turnkey" project that resulted in the building of two Next Generation Data Centers, allowing it to reduce the number of physical servers and network complexity.
Deployment of 2 Data Centers
Wining and buildings compliancy to the standards
Software platform virtualization
Army intranet implementation, consolidating the major services, such as email and other applications of strategic interest
These activities were followed by the building of a third data center at the CSIE (Army Computer Systems Center), focusing on logistics, and by the creation of 11 additional mini Data Centers in six different locations throughout the country, which paved the way, in complete safety, for further Cloud Computing possibilities. Measures were then taken to consolidate the Army Management Information System (SIGE) and military storage protocols, which have been entirely virtualized and centralized in these new infrastructures.
Throughout this project, Italtel provided continuous technical assistance and guaranteed its support through training activities agreed upon with the customer.
IMPROVEMENT OF PERFORMANCES
NUMBER OF SERVERS REDUCTION
IMPROVEMENT OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE SERVICES PROVIDED
MAXIMUM SCALABILITY AND FLEXIBILITY OF IT RESOURCES
To provide Army with a high level of innovation and to allow a renovation process that can take advantage of Cloud Computing, the two Data Centers have been implemented using the best technologies available on the market.
The reference technology Partner for the design of the solution is Cisco. In particular, Italtel adopted Cisco products of the UCS (Unified Computing Systems) and NEXUS family, and high capacity next-generation switches created for environments such as Data Centers.
Italtel has demonstrated the ability to manage complex and strategically important projects: it is a privileged partner for all customers who wish to upgrade their technology infrastructure to next-generation data centers.
