General descriptions: Smart Yinchuan Program is expected to eliminate isolated information islands to the maximum extent, realize full data coverage and trans-departmental data sharing and increase the government’s level in administration innovation, all-around city management, refined public services and integrated industrial development. The development of Yinchuan Public Security Information Sharing Platform has become the trunk line of the Smart Yinchuan Program.
Smart Yinchuan Program will eliminate isolated information islands to the maximum extent, realize full data coverage and trans-departmental data sharing and increase the government’s level in administration innovation, all-around city management, refined public services and integrated industrial development. The development of Yinchuan Public Security Information Sharing Platform has become the trunk line of the Smart Yinchuan Program.
Included in the second catalog of pilot smart cities, Yinchuan will develop a big data center, 4G city network, secure city, smart environment protection and other projects as the base of smart city, promote the development of the IOT, big data and cloud computing and create derivative industrial chains. As an important backbone of the secure city project, the information sharing platform based on cloud computing architecture of Yinchuan Public Security Bureau will become an important part of Yinchuan’s smart city program.
Driven by the cloud computing information technologies and in order to promote integration and sharing of data of public security bureau, administration of industry and commerce, civil affairs bureau, educational bureau and other authorities, Yinchuan Municipal Public Security Bureau expects to capitalize on the development of next-generation information technology to establish an all-around, smart and digital emergency response system of Yinchuan through data collection and resource integration. Meanwhile, Yinchuan Public Security Bureau urgently needs to establish a platform for sharing of social and public data, summarize, analyze and compare the data and establish a general management data platform system that is capable of real-time dynamic management and control, real-time general information services and social management services. It also needs to promote combination of governmental offices and administrative services so as to ensure seamless exchanges of data between governmental organs, improve the government’s online service system and service ability, make it convenient for the public to inquire about and use various types of public services and increase satisfaction index of the public.
Dual challenges for conventional platform: isomerization and efficiency
However, the data centers of various committees, offices and bureaus of Yinchuan have accumulated hardware products of many different technical routes, architectures and brands, including servers, storages and network devices, and deployed various types of virtual systems, e.g. VMwarevSphere, Citrix XenServer and various virtual environments during long-term informatization process. Therefore, how to utilize old equipment and collectively manage the diversified hardware resources, isomeric virtual systems and different applications in various data centers have become the No. 1 problem to be solved during construction of Yinchuan public security information sharing platform.
Moreover, the original data centers are generally troubled by low utilization ratio of hardware resources and resources being left unused. How to effectively and reasonably utilize resources and increase the utilization ratio of resources? How to avoid data loss and accidental damage of data during construction of data center? How to effectively protect data safety? These problems all need to be preferentially solved during construction of the data center.
Build smart Yinchuan based on “nerve center”
As a leading supplier of cloud computing general solution, Inspur proposes the framework for development of Yichuan information network, i.e. “smart management, information services, emergency joint operation and data integration” and takes Inspur OS as the “nerve center system” that runs through the informatization platform of various committees, offices and bureaus according to such a principle, hence effectively settling the difficult problems of Yinchuan’s public security information sharing platform, i.e. system isomerization, resource waste and isolated data island.
Yunhai OS can realize seamless compatibility with the diversified isomeric virtual platforms of various data centers. It can not only manage the mainstream server virtualization product VMware vSphere, but also manage Inspur’s self-developed server virtualization product iVirtual. The virtual environment that the user has deployed can be taken over by Yunhai OS without the need to stop operation and impact on the operation. By adding virtual control center, vSphere, iVirtual and other virtual environments can be incorporated into the scope of management of Yunhai OS to realize seamless compatibility with and uniform management of the isomeric virtual environment.
Yunhai OS not only is seamlessly compatible with diversified isomeric virtual environments, but also can be extensively compatible with the various types of isomeric physical devices of data centers of various bureaus, offices and committees of Yinchuan, including the mainstream X86 server and other storage devices and network equipment of different manufacturers and models, e.g. IBM, HP, DELL, Lenovo and Inspur servers, EMC and Netapp storages as well as H3C, Huawei and Cisco switches and routers and other network devices. Yunhai OS can collectively abstract the diversified isomeric servers, storage and network resources in the data centers into a virtual data center and hence realize the resource integration, dynamic scalability and flexible circulation.
Other than managing various types of isomeric physical resources and virtual resources of the data center, Yunhai OS can also enable detailed monitoring of various types of software and hardware resources, support 150+ monitoring items with several thousand types of monitors. It allows checking of system configuration data, real-time operating conditions, temperature, voltage and health data, CPU, memory, storage utilization ratio and alarm messages of servers, storages and network devices.
Highly efficient, uniform and safe data sharing platform
Through integration of Yunhai OS, the utilization ratio of the IT infrastructures of Yinchuan Municipal Public Security Bureau is effectively increased; the demands for physical mainframes are reduced; and the demands for machine capacity and electric refrigeration are reduced too. Meanwhile, the original manual IT management mode is replaced by a simple and uniform management mode where physical resources are converted into a pool and collectively scheduled via the engine of Yunhai OS cloud management platform and a uniform management interface.
Moreover, Yinchuan Municipal Public Security Bureau data sharing platform is furnished with Inspur’s patented equipment and software to effectively guarantee data and system security. The HV features of virtualization technology and various HA designs of the solution can effectively guarantee business continuation. When any physical computer or virtual machine is in trouble, the operation continuation is guaranteed through the high availability.
Inspur Yunhai OS is a patented cloud data center operating system and a modular and standard cloud data center resource management platform with an open architecture. It can realize the integration, management and fast service delivery of isomeric resources of a data center and therefore is the “central nervous system” of a cloud data center. Inspur Yunhai OS has been extensively applied in government, national defense, public security, health, enterprise and industrial cloud development and it is expected to help the user transfer from a conventional data center to a cloud data center.
