Challenge

The Priority Group has been growing significantly for a number of years and, in many ways, had outgrown their core technology. Their business was facing an ever increasing business need for redundancy, disaster recovery, and the reduction of server sprawl.

Approach

ITDATA, with its extensive background in virtualization technology, designed a highly redundant, virtualized infrastructure using VMware and state of the art Dell Servers and a Dell/Equallogic PS4000 SAN. The entire network is designed to support  the Priority Group’s 7x24x365 up-time requirement with redundant switches, servers, and fail-over internet connectivity. In addition, because of their up-time requirement, ITDATA was challenged to complete the upgrade of the Priority Group’s servers and systems with near zero downtime.

Results

The new virtual network was built alongside the current network which enabled a virtually seamless transition to the new platform meeting the criteria of near zero downtime.

In addition, we demonstrated the redundancy and reliability of the network to the client by removing network and power cables in real time simulating potential equipment failure points. The network did not go down.

ITDATA is pleased to help our client, the Priority Group, achieve new levels of infrastructure availability and reliability.
