Pantagon wanted a datacenter to collocate its servers to, but the stringent guidelines surrounding security of digital certificates and colocation services’ failure to abide by these guidelines, rendered collocating as unviable.
Pantagon needed not just colocation space but also work desks to accommodate some of its workforce in the same edifice as the datacenter. It had, however, faced unprecedented challenges finding such hosts that could lodge its staff in a private space, right where the datacenter was located.
A flip side to the argument could be that with MOGAS’s mammoth data heap, a little bounce back of emails was not extraordinary but the same had never happened with any of Cyfuture’s clients, many of whom had data heaps just as broad as MOGAS’s.
A total of 42 units racks was decided would be erected in a separate space. Cyfuture collaborated with the professionals at Pantagon and after a series of discussions decided that the latter could better comply to its SLAs if –
A separate cage is provided and CCTV monitoring is done for events inside the cage. A specialized access control door is erected and dual Ethernet connectivity is defined.
Dual Ethernet connectivity was defined with one PSTN link each at DR site and PR site to be terminated in the internal cage for Time Management purposes.
A committed space for the team deployed at datacenter location, with amenities similar to those provided to employees at Cyfuture with its own LCD.
Cyfuture created a colocation space and erected all structures, exactly as the 2D design provided by Pantagon. Sitting facility provided to Pantagon’s team had as many facilities as those given to regular employees of Cyfuture.
Pantagon could establish its own private space within the datacenter and had it specialized to its use case. Post-installation, the facility was successfully tested as compliant to the client’s stated SLAs and the related workforce was soon deputed to the datacenter edifice.
The prevailing standards of the industry in which Pantagon specializes were met and the client achieved a more reliable and customized specifications. More importantly, the co-location facility could tap into a private space within the DC, for an augmented IT experience. Pantagon also saved expending on capital it would have expended procuring datacenter of its own, while maintaining the same level of experience as on a private DC.
