Data Center Designing
On deciding to build your own data center, you have to follow certain guidelines. Building a datacenter is not something that will last for a day or two
You may like to consult a data center expert to formulate a standards-based design structure for your data center as per your customizable requirements
There are standard and optional components to these customizable services

Space utilization
Raised floor
Power distribution systems
Air Conditioning, heating, and ventilation
Air Flow management
Cable management
Environmental contamination
Fire protection
Shut –down controls
Engine generator
Power quality
Maintenance levels of data centre support equipment
Physical Security systems

Capacity Planning

As part of capacity planning, vAptus looks at the current and future business needs and the associated IT needs to finally arrive at an optimal IT infrastructure/ architecture that is scalable and cost effective. This would typically involve:

• Assess the customer's overall objective for current and future business needs.
•Define, in consultation with the customer, critical application workloads, response requirements, availability objectives and growth estimates for each
• Design of IT infrastructure, architecture.
• Technical evaluation of vendor solutions and decide on appropriate cost effective solution.
• Provide future directions and road map that goes in tandem with the technology trend.
• Hand hold customer during deployment

Benefits of Capacity Planning

Reduced infrastructure costs
Reduced cost of acquiring new systems
Improved management efficiencies
Reduced risk of over-utilisation impacts

Performance Tuning / Testing /Stress Testing

A standard approach to performance engineering
The activities related to the performance engineering process are detailed in Figure . These activities, which must be performed at each major stage in the application development life cycle, include:

Model

A model represents an application's key logic flows, and describes the expected flow of messages through the entire application from end to end. Creation of an application logic model is facilitated by creating use cases and message sequence diagrams.

Test
Conduct tests to capture empirical data, which can be used in the model for key application logic flows. When test data isn't available (such as during an early life-cycle phase), use reasonable estimates based on comparable applications or experience flows.

Validate assumptions and scenarios
Along with the model's representation of the application logic, you need a set of scenarios that reflect expected business and application transaction volumes. Test and revisit these scenarios at each phase of the life cycle.

Recalibrate
When running models, you may uncover new insights regarding an application's performance behavior. As test data comes in, you may also need to recalibrate to better reflect the environment.

Conduct performance analysis
Each activity involves the review and analysis of performance data to learn about the application, develop ways to improve performance or design alternative means for delivering the function faster.

Security Architecture & Network Services
Our Infrastructure Consulting Services group helps you plan, design and implement technical architectures and infrastructure.

The Security solution based on the defined security architecture and the associated security policies are re- charted out for implementation during this phase. A detailed activity plan with specific schedule is chalked out. Post implementation, recommendations are given to test for security vulnerabilities and patches and apply them accordingly. The implementation plan ensures that the applications are tested for functionality at each stage.

Output
An implementation plan brief will be delivered for the proposed security architecture framework, which will consist of:
• Details of current systems within the Security Architecture.
• Network diagrams with all the details
• Security Framework and configuration details
• Configuration of various recommended security products
