System virtualisation project
Sword Technologies was commissioned to rebuild server infrastructure all the way from the sizing study to the system launch.
The following key stages were completed:
- Capacity management
- Storage consolidation
- Application of a vSphere cluster made up of 3 physical hosts / a 2-storage subsystem SAN/8GB FC
- P2V migration of 20 servers
Along with this project, a further technical challenge was to migrate directory services from OpenLdap to Microsoft Active Directory and centralise user and group management using a FileMaker base as an entry point.
Based on this success, Sword Technologies is now their favoured partner when it comes to IT projects.
