IT teams in companies need flexibility and business agility. These bind next generation new cloud technologies in the data center architectures. One of the most pressing questions is how to achieve flexibility and scalability to the increasingly unpredictable peak load during application intercept traffic and at the same time to meet the strict service level agreements (SLAs) performance.
Bringing these often results in conflicting objectives in line, assuming that each element of a larger data center infrastructure itself offers the capacity and performance according to the conditions.
Modern enterprise data centers are extremely dynamic. Among the current trends and events that increase the application loads regularly include:
- Introduction of new applications – The implementation of new e-commerce and Rich media applications and other services leads to new and often considerable Network loads.
- Introduction of new technologies – Some technology solutions such as application and Desktop virtualization can increase the network load in the data center significantly. Others, such as VoIP and video, create an equal even load because the increased traffic volume comes into play in all network areas.
- Add new users – Mergers and acquisitions, geographic expansion, demographic extensions and increase the product range and organic growth are usual activities for virtually every company and can lead to a sudden increase in volume traffic data
- The dynamic data center – The widespread adoption of cloud architectures and virtualization technologies transforming enterprise data centers into private clouds. As a result, it creates an environment that, in a very short time, if not automatically adjusted to a new and changed business needs – and the ability to changes in resource requirements to collect network performance and applications.
Network usage patterns and the total exposure can also occur due to many unpredictable factors to which IT has no direct influence such as new marketing campaigns, promotions, and numerous other business initiatives. It is also not possible to say when a new technology, a new services or content will spread suddenly rapidly.
These are regular events in our everyday business. The challenge for IT is not in being able to prevent it – as in many other types of threats in the IT environments. The point is rather to ensure that the Network and Application Infrastructure should have a capacity sufficient to cope with these scenarios.
The reactive approach is too risky
One possible approach for CIOs is to respond to the increase in demand for IT flexibility. Each increase in demand requires to evaluate the situation and then to plan hardware upgrades and implement hardware or install additional systems.
The proactive approach at the other end is too costly. A proactive approach to the capacity of the network and application infrastructure has usually led to over-provisioning systems to the otherwise expensive and disruptive hardware upgrades.
The MadeIT solutions
Based on a highly secure and redundant network infrastructure, MadeIT provides fully automated infrastructure with the right level of performance, flexibility, functionality and economy. It enables seamless scaling and connecting your database server, web server, e-mail mail servers and application servers through a private network without data charges.
A fully scalable network with a future
MadeIT server instances can be interconnected, or additional services can be added on the fly. With our comprehensive IaaS services portfolio, you have the future of opportunity to be creative and add hybrid hosting solutions of all kinds and provide seamless users experience.
A private network for your data
The private network is built on our redundant network infrastructure, and no other party has access to your VLAN. We offer a complete Layer 2 network and Layer 3 services, to ensure the expansion of future MadeIT products.
Reduced network costs and no data transfer
Thanks to the fair-use of bandwidth, you can reduce your data costs in comparison to a public network dramatically. Virtual Racks make physical racks redundant and you can transform granular infrastructure in a fully integrated and scalable infrastructure without manual intervention.
Complete automation simplifies network management
The private network solution offers tremendous flexibility and control in providing or scaling the infrastructure thanks to the user-friendly customer center or the API. Add devices or remove them as needed – without downtime and without modifying the IP addresses.
