Allot System Integration: It Infrastructure Virtualization Made Easy

CIO Vendor In a bid to enhance the scalability and performance of IT infrastructure, businesses are gradually moving towards adoption of software-defined infrastructure by virtualizing their data centres, servers, networks etc. While virtualization allows enterprises to manage the infrastructure as software, it also presents them with numerous challenges in terms of data center consolidation and existing hardware integration etc. Enabling businesses to digitize their workspace and adopt software-defined infrastructure by addressing their data centre consolidation and integration challenges is Allot System Integration, a certified partner.

Being a pure-play IT System Integrations company, Allot System Integration provides solutions in the areas of Data Centre Consolidation and Virtualization which include Desktop Virtualization, Server Virtualization, Storage Virtualization, Data Center Networking, Data Centre Infrastructure, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity. “Increasing digitization has led enterprises to consider IT infrastructure virtualization as an alternative to physical on-premise hardware models. Businesses today are also looking for complete digital workspace migration. We help them in making their infrastructure software-defined ready and facilitate their workspace digitization. We also provide device management solutions to help enterprises effectively monitor and control their business operations,” informs Nihar Kapadia, Director, Allot Systems Integration. The company addresses complete digitization issues right from data center consolidation, software-defined data centre, software-defined storage, virtual desktop infrastructure, software-defined networking, software defined wide area network to mobility and security solutions, helping clients experience true digital transformation using VMware hyper-converged infrastructure platform.

Effective disaster recovery and business continuity plan supports critical business functions and helps to increase system availability and optimize resource usage by mitigating the impact of disruptions. Allot System Integration enables enterprises to design better disaster recovery and business continuity plan using near-site DR and far-site DR to minimize the negative effect of natural or human induced disasters, allowing them to resume mission critical functions to ensure business continuity. “VMware’s strategic partnerships with top class cloud providers such as AWS, Microsoft Azure and Oracle enable us to migrate client’s on-premise DR and BCP infrastructure onto the cloud in a single touch, and set up cloud-based disaster recovery system in no time,” informs Nihar.
Granular Security via Micro-segmentation
As businesses move to virtual and cloud architectures, networking and security become more complex and dynamic. To help enterprises easily transition to the cloud environment, Allot System Integration provides end-to-end network and system integration services right from design and consulting to implementation and support services. By using VMware NSX, the company enables granular protection and security for the applications and traffic flowing into the data center via micro-segmentation down to the individual workload.

The company is also working on a couple of projects on network security and network virtualization. The company is investing heavily to equip its resources with various VMware certifications. As a part of geographical expansion, the company is planning to reach out to a wider customer base across various geographies.

Consolidation OF GHCL’s Data Centers
One of the clients of Allot System Integration named Gujarat Heavy Chemicals Limited (GHCL), a chemical manufacturer that produces Soda Ash has three data centers spread across three different locations in the country. Allot System Integration consolidated the client’s data centers on the VMware Hyper-converged infrastructure platform, helping them easily migrate to the cloud environment. “We virtualized servers, storage and network using VMware NSX - a virtual networking and security platform, enabling them to transition to the cloud platform for complete WAN optimization using SDWAN. That was a very unique case where we migrated their entire SAP S4 HANA workload to the VMware platform. Since VMware is authorized to run the SAP production database on the virtualized environment, we were able to successfully complete migration of SAPS4 HANA,” elaborates Nihar on how they helped to consolidate the three data centres of GHCL.
