Issues under discussion:
Stack Group and DataPro — the largest participants of the commercial data centers market and cloud technologies together will create a unified disaster-proof cloud infrastructure based on advanced Hewlett-Packard solutions.
The companies as strategic partners deploy cloud-based equipment combined by the unified control system on three patforms: M1 + DataPro Moscow + DataPro Tver. HP storage systems for M1 and DataPro Moscow overlap by 100%, and the platforms are connected by redundant high-speed communication links, which allows carrying out projects with the highest requirements to the data transfer reliability and data availability including synchronous data replication.
Data backup between two independent centers of Moscow and Tver will be implemented in asynchronous mode.
“With this solution customers of Stack Group and DataPro can get direct access to the cloud infrastructure M1Cloud right on three platforms simalteneously,” said Evgeny Gorokhov, CEO of Stack Group. “We have forged a strategic partnership with DataPro for the first time in order to implement the “Backup data center” concept and meet the most stringent requirements on information systems reliability, given a customer system failure.”
According to Alexey Soldatov, CEO of DataPro, combining the line of activity of our companies, we offer the market computing infrastructure solutions with a unique level of reliability that allow customers not only to implement complex projects related to the companies activity in terms of IT, but also to realize the DRP (Disaster Recovery Plan).
“Solutions based on HP 3PAR StoreServ storage systems allow providers to obtain fault-tolerant data storage system with the level of availability up to 99.9999%.
Each array controller HP 3PAR has a dedicated co-processor ASIC, which eases the functionality of creating small volumes. It also performs online deduplication and combines all array controllers in the active-active cluster with load balancing, which allows for the use of deduplication and small volumes for all applications, with practically no loss of efficiency of array controllers. This allows you to use the resources of the main CPU to run the software and hardware of another system.
And the use of one operating system on the controllers of all HP 3PAR arrays simplifies data migration and management of multiple arrays of one class, thereby allowing to organize a “federation” structure: combining multiple arrays through the SAN without additional hardware and being visible for applications without interrupting access for data migration organization,” says Andrey Veresov, Business Development Manager responsible for Data Storage Systems sector, HP Russia.
