IT Infrastructure

Infrastructure & Cloud Services

Cloud Services deals with all solutions, tools and processes that are necessary to provide the defined IT infrastructures including the applications.

Cloud Services contains the following sub-topics:

  • Virtualisation and Platforms
  • Big Data
  • Infrastructure Outsourcing
  • Kondor-As-A-Service (KaaS)

 

Virtualisation and Platforms

This topic deals with:

  • All kinds of VIRTUALISATION, which are now the core of all IT infrastructures. Regardless of whether it is Server Virtualisation (including product specific knowledge in VMware VSphere, Microsoft HyperV, Citrix Xenserver), Client Virtualisation (including product specific knowledge in VMware Horizon) or Network Virtualisation (including product specific knowledge in VMware NSX)
  • The design and setup of PLATFORMS. Platforms (which can be created on the server operating system, client, database or middleware level) are used to deliver high quality and very flexible services “upstairs” with minimised infrastructure costs. They also enable easier Data centre automation. Platforms do not only cover a technical aspect but also standardised processes and a supporting organisation

 

Big Data Management

This topic deals with important tools that are necessary to deal with Big Data:

  • The MarkLogic NO-SQL database where we have a strong partnership
  • Splunk, Graylog2 and Logstash for Logfile Management
  • Elastic for complex searches in big data stores as well as logfiles
  • Hadoop/HadoopFS as the base storage which is more and more used when it comes to big data
