The company made a decision to replace its datacenter so it could properly handle the ever-increasing need in computing resources and a surge in information flows. Softline was awarded one of the contracts under this ambitious plan.
Softline engineers were responsible for the design and installation of the infrastructure for the new datacenter, including structured cabling systems, the network infrastructure, monitoring and video surveillance systems, automatic gas removal and fire extinction, ventilation and waterworks. Most of the infrastructure was based on products supplied by Huawei.
The Softline team found this project challenging and exciting. It was essential to comply with rather strict requirements to the equipment from the client as well as with government regulations. We have successfully completed the project in just four months, and the client is currently dealing with planned migration to the new sites, says Semyon Kondrashov, Softline Large Corporate Clients manager in the Volga Federal District.
The construction of a new datacenter was one of the key projects for Progress last year. We are pleased with the Softline team, whose experts have demonstrated ample expertise and the ability to promptly address any work issues. As a result, we have received a new datacenter with a modern infrastructure. Its computing resources are more than sufficient not only for current projects but also for those planned for the coming 5 to 7 years, adds Alexander Filatov, head of IT department at Progress.
