Delivering industry-leading IaaS platform services with the reliable and modular design.
Driven by mobile internet, Big Data, IoT and other technologies, enterprises are migrating traditional IT to the cloud for more efficient operations and cost optimization.
Regardless of where you are on the way to the cloud, Inspur can provide the infrastructure platforms to get the job done right.
The rich Inspur portfolio of server and converged solutions delivers a wide range of the capabilities to build a more reliable, secure and agile Enterprise cloud.
Inspur’s methodology to transform traditional IT to an Enterprise cloud involves 3 major steps that build on each other. The goal is to create a fully integrated and efficiently managed pool of IT services capable of providing users with the resources and services they require.
The 1st step involves maximizing the utilization of computing resources and storage platform to increase efficiency and reduce capital expenditure (CAPEX). You can create a virtual resource tool with the ability to manage the resources on demand. Hardware resources are no longer tied to legacy applications or platforms that can be provisioned to somewhere else. This approach also provides significant cost optimization and the agility to rapidly respond to changing business demands.
The 2nd step is to summarize large quantities of information from separated systems, departments and organizations. Data consolidation improves productivity and efficiency by collecting and integrating into a single data store such as a virtual resource pool. Also enterprises are able to make more successful business decision with a comprehensive view of suppliers and customers by accessing and analyzing the data.
The 3rd step is to improve the products and services with innovative business model and business strategy in order to attract more attention from consumers. Traditional IT has been transformed to be service-driven with on demand resources and automated management that can effectively support the increasing demands.
Inspur Enterprise Cloud solution has following targets:
To provide a high stability cloud platform;
To meet the business demands;
To provide a high scalability cloud platform;
To satisfy long-term planning of multiple data centers.
Inspur Enterprise Cloud solution provides customers with cloud resource pool, cloud services, cloud operation management, cloud security, cloud standards and cloud mechanism. The system logical architecture is shown in the picture below:
Cloud Resource Pool
Construction of Cloud resource pool includes the primary data center and disaster recovery data center.
Main data center construction includes:
Integration of heterogeneous physical equipment such as server, storage, network and security devices;
Integration of heterogeneous software such as Software-Defined Computing, Software-Defined Network and Software-Defined Storage;
Resource pool such as computing, network and storage resource pools;
Physical server resource pool for RMDB cluster, Big Data, etc.
Disaster recovery (DR) data center will be built according to the actual requirements.
Cloud service construction includes IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service) and SaaS (Software as a Service).
IaaS is the foundation of the whole platform and it delivers the infrastructure resources such as computing service, storage service and network service.
Computing service includes the delivery of cloud servers, physical servers, containers, virtual datacenter and VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure).
Network service includes the delivery of virtual network, SDN, firewall and load balancing.
Storage service includes the delivery of cloud disk/LUN, object storage, cloud storage and Big Data storage.
The PaaS provides a database platform, middleware, software development and testing framework for smooth migration and management of resources through a unified Cloud architecture. It includes basic services, Big Data services, and application services.
Basic services includes Cloud Hosting, Cloud Storage, and Relational database, etc.
Big Data services involves distributed computing, memory computing, streaming computing, searching and data collection, and other Big Data analysis tools based on the basic services.
Application services such as Cloud application engine, distributed cache, message queue and Develops (development and operations) are built based on data analysis results.
SaaS Layer Services
SaaS layer construction is divided into generic services and business applications. Generic services include unified accounts, message collaboration, data management, application stores, etc. The business applications are customized based on real-time customer services.
Cloud Operation Management
Cloud operation management includes the self-service portal of tenants and the management portal of system administrators.
It includes visible scheduling, applications and services orchestration, resource management, assets management and charging, Cloud monitoring, Big Data analysis, user authority and audit management, Cloud disaster recovery and backups, Cloud security and Hybrid Cloud management, etc.
The system administrator has the highest authority, and orchestrates and delivers the service catalog to the end users. The users manage and monitor the local resources through the self-service portal.
The resource applicants (the end users) request resources through the self-service portal. The system administrator (O&M staff) can monitor the operation status of the whole platform and set the policy.
The platform doubles the capacity of the existing system to manage the Cloud resources and hardware devices.
Cloud security includes external and internal security.
External security includes technical and management levels.
The technical level ensures the security of physical layer, network layer, host, application layer, data layer, etc.
The management level contains management institution, management regulation, personnel management, system construction and operation management.
Internal security includes internal borders remodeling, security domain isolation, software-defined security resources, antivirus deployment, unified security management platform, cloud security, audit management, and disaster recovery. Security managers manage the security platform with a unified portal.
Our solution follows existing international and enterprises standards and criterions to meet the project requirements, and develop new standards and criterions.
Our solution improves the criterions on organization management, personnel management, regulation construction, technology innovation, appraisal and supervision.
