Using vRealize Suite

Reducing time to respond to It requests from Customers is one of our main goals. Using tools as vRealize Suite helps us to achieve this goal. vRealize Suite is an enterprise-ready, cloud management suite that delivers the industry’s most complete solution for managing a heterogeneous, hybrid cloud.

It automate the delivery of production ready infrastructure across multi-cloud environments through automation and policy driven governance, reducing the time it takes us to respond to requests.

Managing big data

imaging technology and produces super-big outputs that are in use by the different units of the G-INCPM. This results with a huge amount of data that needs to be stored and shared. To meet the scientists’ needs, the IT unit is updating its storage systems.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager (IBM TSM) is an enterprise class backup and archiving application. IBM TSM, like all enterprise backup software products, is designed to make copies of an organization's data to protect against data loss. Similar to other enterprise backup software platforms, it enables policy-based, automated data backup.

Disaster recovery

Disaster recovery (DR) involves a set of policies, tools and procedures to enable the recovery or continuation of vital technology infrastructure and systems following a natural or human-induced disaster. Disaster recovery focuses on the IT or technology systems supporting critical business functions, as opposed to business continuity, which involves keeping all essential aspects of a business functioning despite significant disruptive events. Disaster recovery can therefore be considered as a subset of business continuity.

G-INCPM Disaster Recovery site facilitated at Weizmann Institute of Science. It contains Virtual Private Cloud infrastructure among with fully replicated data from production site with all critical servers and services.

G-INCPM DR site relays on 14 Lenovo Blade servers with 9216 Gigabyte of RAM and 608 CPUs for compute nodes (Private Cloud), InfiniDat InfiniBox with 1500 Terabytes of capacity running GPFS (General Parallel File System). GPFS is among the leading file systems for high performance computing (HPC) applications. Storage used for large supercomputers is often GPFS-based, and GPFS is also popular for commercial applications requiring high-speed access to large volumes of data, such as digital media, seismic data processing and engineering design.

With GPFS capabilities and TSM manager, we are able to provide 7 years of data and servers retention policy.
