Abstract

The enterprise server and storage products from most of OEMs like IBM, HP etc support virtualization and continuity, enabling Contract Research Organizations (CRO) to consolidate workloads across diverse operating environments and to deploy new solutions quickly, reliably and with a significantly lower total cost of ownership. The key requirement of the CRO at Hyderabad is that the existing application and database servers be replaced with HP blade and integrity servers, storage and backup solution to be provided for the servers; and replication is setup between primary and secondary sites for database (db) and non-db data. HP solution achieved the disaster tolerence by implementing Metro Cluster for databases and applications. The Lab requires 99.9% high availability for all servers and scientific applications to be migrated from the old platform to the new HP platform.
