Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin

Customer Overview

Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (abbreviated as UniSZA) is considered the biggest "comprehensive university" On the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia and as one of the most respected Islamic-based institution of higher learning in Malaysia. It has produced thousands of graduates in various fields since its establishment in 1980.

Customer Demand

There were 13 racks in their DC, absorbing too much electricity and space, and overloading the air conditioning, which was unable to provide a cool enough environment. Some servers were outdated and storage became bottlenecked. Because open source free BSD 11.0 was used for DR and backup, a specialized IT team was required to work with the online Veritas Backup system. The total IT system was in urgent need of renewal.
-Reduce the number of racks
-Reduce pressure of the cooling system
-DR and Backup solution should integrated
-Open source systems should be supported
-Operation and maintenance need to be simplified

Sangfor Education Cloud DC Solution

Sangfor’ s education cloud DC solution provides an overall hyper-converged solution, integrated DR and security to support all mission critical applications. A total of 6 nodes were deployed, with 3 nodes deployed at each production and DR site. Two sites were connected with IPVPN. VMs and Storage could now be backed up locally or remotely. Scheduling policies were implemented to move virtual machines between both locations. If a production server is down, a DR server will resume operations within an hour. Software defined architecture allows educational institutions to modify and upgrade their existing facilities into more location-independent, flexible and collaborative learning environments with low TCO.
