This case study describes a cloud solution that we have implemented to the big company specializing in the gaming field.
By the time the project started, the client had experience working with another provider who leased the computing resources of the data center in the Netherlands. The client wanted to increase data privacy and improve the efficiency of its core IT infrastructure. Therefore, he was interested in the Tier III+ class data center in Germany with a multi-level security system, redundant power supply, and round-the-clock technical support. The key requirement for the project is to ensure business security and reliable data protection for the game participants. Considering the substantial workload with peak bursts of activity and the specifics of the industry which the client operates in, we proposed to build a redundant private cloud based on a cluster of dedicated servers with separate data storage. Customer’s requirements specification:
Based on the technical requirements for infrastructure workload and network bandwidth, we suggested to the client to build a cluster based on Dell servers located in a separate 47U rack. Therefore, the cluster structure has the following configuration: Dell PowerEdge R330 Server – 3 pcs. (C01, C02, C03), with the configuration:
Dell PowerEdge R640 – 6 pcs. (N01, N02, N03, N04, N05, N06), with the configuration:
Dell SCV3020 storage with configuration:
Juniper EX2200-24T-4G (SW03) switch was used in the control network. Dell Networking N4032 switches, 24x 10GBase-T Ports (SW01, SW02), 2 pcs. were used in the cluster's local area network. Brocade 6505, 16 Port FC16 Switch 16 Gbit/s (SW04, SW05), 2 pcs were used in fiber-optic storage.
We have prepared an individual server for the client, based on his wishes and the specifics of the business. Redundant high-performance cluster provided the client with the required level of data privacy, and the players with stable access to the company's services any time. The built IT infrastructure maintains excellent efficiency in peak load mode.
