Server and Client Integration
provides services involving system migration and system integration planning, disaster recovery planning, business resumption planning, information systems risk management assessment, software package requirements and evaluations, functional requirements definition, system specifications and project management and auditing.
helps customers meet their business objectives by employing the advantages of client/server solutions. We help customers migrate host-based applications to client/server solutions and incorporate client/server solutions into their LAN or intranet environments
Client/Server architectures permit users to share common resources in a distributed computer environment.
Our staff can also analyze customer requirements and the associated cost-benefit trade-offs of client/server technology alternatives to determine specific client/server solutions. We often work with our strategic partners during the design phase of a client/server integration project to ensure that the appropriate client/server technology is included in the recommended solution.
client/server integration includes product fulfillment, delivery, installation, and administration of associated hardware systems and software components. Software components include the operating system, application, storage management, and database software. The objectives of these activities is to provide stable client and server platforms for which the customer and software component can incorporate a required objective.
Client/Server Data Systems
Depending on factors such as the total number of users, number of concurrent users, types of queries (decision-support or transaction), thru-put requirements, and database size will define the appropriate client/server database software components and licenses. These factors are also evaluated to determine the required number processors, memory size, and bandwidth to be implemented. Our objective is to design a balanced client/server configuration in terms of networking, clients, servers, and associated resources to reduce the overall cost and minimize performance bottlenecks while providing long range investment protection of the core components.
Enterprise Data Management
can provide integration of centrally managed enterprise-wide medium to large scale data and storage management solutions in a distributed network environment. We offer total integration of data and storage management solutions, including architectural design, consulting, customization, software, computer systems, data storage, robotics, automation, libraries, networks, support and training.
Requirements Analysis and Consulting
New business processes and associated technology are generally not effective unless the customer and its systems integrator understand the business objectives that the customer expects to achieve from the innovations being implemented.
works with the customer to ensure that these objectives are quantitatively expressed in terms of expected cost reductions, productivity gains, quality improvements, and/or time-to-implement requirements
Customized solution design and implementation
's desire for excellence in Customized Design Solutions is only surpassed by its demand for customer satisfaction. Successful implementation results can only be achieved by our extensive efforts in the following areas.
System Sizing and Configuration
Requirements are evaluated to determine the required number processors, memory size, and bandwidth for servers. Our objective is to design a balanced client/server configuration in terms of networking, clients, servers, and associated resources to minimize the overall cost and performance bottlenecks while providing long range investment protection and expandability of the core components.
Systems Management Services
provides client/server system management services to help customers meet requirements for system availability and maintainability. These services include mass storage management functions, system monitoring, and change management. Mass storage management functions include the definition and administration of the appropriate Raid methodology, disk volumes, and configuration of disk partitions as required by the application.
Depending upon customer requirements Raid-0, Raid-1, or Raid-5 may be applicable for a particular server. Raid-0 (stripping) offers the best performance while not providing disk error recovery, Raid-1 (mirroring) offers optimum performance and disk error recovery at the highest cost, while Raid-5 provides a compromise solution between Raid-0 and Raid-1 by providing a parity bit for error recovery. System monitoring software provides for detection of errors and system performance degradation so that corrective action can be taken. Change management ensures that system software changes are coordinated and do not cause user or system interruptions.
High Availability Configuration
To provide high availability configurations with no single point of failure, a cluster of two or more systems are cross-connected to common mass storage. Depending on the support provided by the client/server application, these solutions employ symmetric or asymmetric configurations. Symmetric configurations are the most efficient because all systems normally share the overall server workload and upon a system failure the processing performed by the failing system is assumed by the remaining operative systems. Asymmetric failsafe switches the processing workload to a warm standby system when the primary system fails. A monitor, running in each system, detects system failures and initiates transfer of control to the good system. A disadvantage of an asymmetric configuration is that the warm standby system is not normally used for productive purposes until the primary system fails.
Wide and Local Area Network Integration
will implement wide and local area networks that address the clients' information technology infrastructure requirements, and applies the best of class hardware, software, and networking technologies.
