IT Infrastructure Services

Infrastructure plays a critical role in business transformation. It enables everything else: applications, processes, operating models, enterprises and extended enterprises. The IT infrastructure of an organization is the framework that supports its business. Without it, applications cannot run, calls cannot be made and businesses cannot function. In today’s competitive marketplace, organizations are challenged to develop, operate and manage their IT infrastructure service delivery that remains cost-effective, competitively distinct, and flexible regarding changing business requirements.

GCE provides a comprehensive set of services for designing, managing and implementing IT infrastructures for many clients from different segments that is based on best practices and our long experience.

Critical Systems Security

Host Intrusion protects against day zero attacks, hardens systems, and helps maintain compliance by enforcing behavior-based security policies on clients and servers. A centralized management console enables administrators to configure, deploy and maintain security policies, manage users and roles, view alerts, and run reports across heterogeneous operating systems.

Critical Systems Protection provides unique services and benefits like;

  • Providing prevention techniques that shield operating systems, applications, and services by defining acceptable behaviors for each function.
  • Protecting systems from misuse by unauthorized users and applications through system and device controls that lock down configuration settings, file systems, and the use of removable media.
  • Providing monitoring, notification, and auditing features that ensure host integrity, system and regulatory compliance
  • Enabling cross-platform server auditing and compliance enforcement with graphical reporting engine featuring multiple queries and graphic formats to visually highlight data.
  • Centralized management console allows simplified, sophisticated administration of heterogeneous systems, reducing workload and providing better reporting.

Business Continuity

Some of the major challenges face enterprise include;

  • Establishing a defined process to ensure business will resume in the event of a disaster
  • Ensuring consistent process across data and applications
  • Restoring data after an outage
  • Applying a consistent process across data and applications
  • Managing interruptions to routine processes that can have a major impact on an organization and lead to lost revenue

Our team, along with Symantec solutions, can help you meet your business recovery objectives by automating backup and recovery, application clustering, and data replication. This will result in;

  • Reducing operating costs and improve operations and manageability of your backup, data availability, and clustering environment with tools that work the same across all platforms and provide management from a single console
  • Reducing hardware costs through increased server and storage utilization, reduplication, and storage tiering
  • Increasing reliability with customer proven, best-of-breed availability technologies
  • Ensuring your mission-critical data and applications remain up and running
  • Reducing operating costs by standardizing on a single business continuity solution to deliver consistent recovery methodologies across people, processes, and technology

  • Easily manage a local or distributed backup environment through a single console
  • Eliminate your backup window and help ensure recovery point objectives are easily met with continuous backup protection

Automation Of IT Best Practices

Each fast forwarding enterprise is looking for an automation platform for orchestrating and integrating IT tools to drive down the cost of data center operations, while improving the reliability of IT processes. It enables IT organizations to automate best practices, such as those found in Microsoft Operations Framework (MOF) and Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL). This is achieved through workflow processes that coordinate System Center and other management tools to automate incident response, change and compliance, and service lifecycle management processes.

Through workflow designer of this automation platform we can shares data and initiates tasks in System Center Operations Manager, System Center Configuration Manager, System Center Service Manager, Virtual Machine Manager, Active Directory and 3rd party tools. The workflow automates IT infrastructure tasks, while System Center Service Manager workflow provides automation of human workflow. The combined offering ensures repeatable, consistent results by removing the latency associated with manual coordination service delivery. System Center and this platform enable integration, efficiency, and business alignment of the data center IT services by:

  • Automating cross-silo processes and enforcing best practices for incident, change, and service lifecycle management.
  • Reducing unanticipated errors and service delivery time by automating tasks across vendor and organization silos.
  • Integrating System Center with non-Microsoft tools to enable interoperability across the data center.
  • Orchestrating tasks across systems for consistent, documented, compliant activity.

IT Service Management

Business wants IT to deliver services that are reliable, compliant, cost-effective, and able to continuously adapt to their ever-changing requirements. With the proper System Service Manager, IT organizations can build an integrated Service Management approach to meeting those needs. Through its power of integrated platform, it orchestrates and unifies the knowledge, processes, and activities across its entire family; this results in improved productivity, reduced costs, lower time to resolution, and a better alignment to business.

Out of the box, System Service Manager provides organizations with connectors that allow siloed data residing in other system collectors and Active Directory Domain Services to create a baseline CMDB.

This centralized, knowledge-driven CMDB serves as a critical repository of operational data, client configuration information, and incident management knowledge. Key asset information, performance metrics, and configuration management data are centralized in the CMDB, allowing it to be used for incident resolution, effective change management, and intelligent decision making.

By orchestrating and unifying the knowledge across all the systems services, the Service Manager helps IT continuously adapt to new business requirements while reducing cost, lowering time to resolution, and helping to align IT to the business.

Management And Performance Efficiency

With the myriad of technologies and applications hosted in today’s data centers, combined with the continued virtualization of those systems and workloads, organizations continue to have to deploy multiple management tools that include proprietary and limited-scope products, tools developed in house, and more.

SCOM uniquely enables customers to reduce the cost of data center management across server operating systems and hypervisors through a single, familiar and easy to use interface. By extending the value that customers already see in managing their Windows Server deployed applications to UNIX and Linux, customers are also able to better meet their service level agreements for applications in the data center.

Benefits of SCOM System -

  • Enhances application performance and availability across heterogeneous platforms in the data center, with the ability to monitor Windows, Linux and UNIX servers and their workloads – all through a single console.
  • Improves management of applications in the data center through enhanced reporting that shows how actual application performance and health maps to target levels of service, as well as monitoring capabilities that scale to required workloads.
  • Increases speed of access to information and functionality to drive management with efficient problem identification and actions to quickly resolve issues before they become incidents.
