INTRANETS


Our Company builds Intranets for Customers which are dedicated internal internets designed for the Business Needs of our Clients. An Intranet is an internal Network designed for internal communications and the transfer of critical Business Data and documents internaly within the Client Network.  It is a secure communications systems which maintains the Company's internal security needs for critical Business Data. 
We also build and Design secure Firewalls and Network Access control procedures. We use professional Firewall system  tools to ensure that the Client Network is protected from external threats and unwarranted external access, from viruses , Network attacks , Data and hardware Vulnerability.

Professional Firewalls thwart hackers from :


  • Denying service to legitimate users (denial-of-service attacks)

  • Gaining administrator access to servers or clients

  • Gaining access to back-end information databases

  • Installing Trojan horse software that bypasses security and enables access to applications

  • Installing software on a server that runs in "sniffer" mode and captures user identifications and passwords

DATA CENTERS


We Design and build Data Centers based on Client Requirements, including the installation, commissioining of Servers, Routers, Cabling Systems, Physical Security and Access Control, Emergency Cooling and Filtration Systems, Back Up Procedures, Data Recovery and Secondary Data Storage, Maintenance and Operating System Adminstration as well as Application Support and Database Adminstration. We have been working with Oracle over 20 years in an installed base with Blue Chip customers.

The flood of information being generated, stored and transmitted over the Internet has created a massive demand for new data centers, facilities where servers, storage, switches and routers fill racks and cabling runs fill overhead and under floor cable trays. Data centers are immense opportunities, involving power, mechanical structures, cabling and security systems.

Data centers are facilities that store and distribute the data on the Internet. With an estimated 100 billion plus web pages on over 100 million websites, data centers contain a lot of data. With almost two billion users accessing all these websites, including a growing amount of high bandwidth video, it’s easy to understand but hard to comprehend how much data is being uploaded and downloaded every second on the Internet.

Data centers are filled with tall racks of electronics surrounded by cable racks. Data is typically stored on big, fast hard drives. Servers are computers that take requests and move the data using fast switches to access the right hard drives. Routers connect the servers to the Internet. Speed is of the essence. Servers are very fast computers optimized for finding and moving data. Likewise, the hard drives, switches and routers are chosen for speed. Interconnection use the fastest methods possible. Faster speed means lower latency, the time it takes to find and send the data along to the requestor.

While speed is a primary concern for data centers, so is reliability. Data centers must be available 24/7 . Reliability comes from designing devices with redundancy, backups for storage, uninterruptible power and fighting the #1 enemy of reliability, heat.Heat is generated by all the electronics, and the faster they run, the more power they consume and the more heat they produce. Getting rid of heat requires lots of air conditioning which can consume as much power as the data center electronics itself. Uninterruptible power requires generators, batteries or even fuel cells and those generate heat from inefficiency also.

Data centers consume vast amounts of power. A few years ago, the magnitude of this consumption became apparent in surveys of giant data centers. Estimates are that data centers consume more than 3% of all the power consumed in the US, which hosts the majority of data centers, an amount more than consumed in total by almost half the states! Power consumption in a data center is more than 100 times as much per square foot as the average commercial property. Within the data center, the focus is on moving data, reducing power and heat and ensuring reliability. That’s done by choosing components and systems, designing facilities and installing them properly.
