Cloud Virtualization Migration
What We Can Do
Data transfer? New server(s)? Relocation to a new landscape? Moving to the Cloud? With our server migration methodology this is a "breeze".
ISIDIS has developed an innovative server migration method through years of experience, making problems such as long migration times and habituation problems a thing of the past. Saving on migration costs We can fully migrate your Enterprise server environment to the latest Microsoft server platform while fully retaining your existing application environment.
With our method, the content and structure and application hosting are preserved. That saves time and money. Server migration while maintaining Active directory We migrate the existing server including Active Directory and your data to a new virtual or physical server without any visible changes. Like Azure and AWS Cloud. Easy linking of different data centers (OTV) Many organizations and institutions are consolidating their data centers into one or two, perhaps three, locations. One is the primary data center, one is a backup data center and there may be a third fallback location.
In addition, to increase application availability, VMware's DRS and vMotion are often used to automatically move a virtual machine to where most or best resources are available. Sounds great, of course, but there are some minor snags: vMotion is a layer 2 technique, which means that the VLANs have to be extended in some way between the data centers. This in itself is often not that difficult, but with the extension of VLANs, the risk domain also extends to the other data center.
A failure in spanning tree on the one hand, can therefore also cause problems on the other, and this must be prevented at all times. We sometimes encounter techniques such as (Eo) MPLS and VPLS, but their configuration is quite complex and not for every organization. With Cisco Overlay Transport Virtualization, also known as OTV, the feature makes this possible.
What OTV does is 'MAC in IP' routing, so that the same L2 information prevails throughout the data center core, but then distributed via layer 3. No more point-to-point, point-to-multipoint and / or pseudowires, which dramatically reduced complexity. In fact, the configuration of OTV are six commands per Nexus 7000!
