Improving the fault tolerance of the data center of Raiffeisen Capital Management Company
The customer's business task
Raiffeisen Capital Management is currently one of the leaders on the Russian asset management market in terms of staff qualifications, investment process transparency and risk management. The company strives to maintain its leadership in terms of the volume of funds under management, profitability and quality of investment products, offering clients investment solutions that best meet their interests. The information system of a large financial institution is a key business asset, for which reason the company requires constant availability of business applications.
To improve the availability and fault tolerance of the systems located in the data center, Raiffeisen Capital Management needed to ensure the monitoring of physical parameters, protection of computing power and notification of responsible employees in case of critical situations.
DEPO Computers conducted a pre-project survey of the data center, which included a comprehensive reliability analysis from the perspective of business process continuity. To solve the client's tasks, a comprehensive solution based on the APC company's innovative system was developed. Raiffeisen Capital Management implemented APC NetBotz monitoring complex designed to control physical environmental parameters: humidity, temperature, liquid leakage. In case of the controlled parameters deviating from the admissible values the automatic alerting of the responsible employees of the Information Technology Department by SMS and e-mail was organized, which allows to correct the problems quickly. Pre-commissioning works were completed by handing over to the customer a fully operational complex performing all the required tasks.
