The Data Center is the core of the Creative Digital City’s (CCD, by its initials in Spanish) technological infrastructure. It gathers the telecommunication and digital processing resources that will contribute to develop the creative industries, innovation and entrepreneurship.
It is the control panel of the Smart City’s Urban Operating System (UOS) and it analyses data collected from sensors and devices installed on water, power and transport infrastructure, as well as on maintenance services and telecommunications, in order to optimize and predict actions depending on the circumstances of the moment.
Its design is flexible, scalable in accordance with the growth and demand of the activities taking place in CCD. It will be a support node for creative and technological industries and entrepreneurs.
An accurate, fast and safe technological infrastructure
The Data Center’s equipment will be set to run virtualization scenarios and high performance applications. Installed technology will expedite the activities of CCD users, and it will also store and back their information up.
From the first stage of the project, collaboration functions will be ready with communication, data and video services that will provide the users with the following benefits::
These assets are aimed to improve finances and Information Technology areas, and to get better Service Level (SLA) and Operational Level (OLA) agreements.
Thanks to the design and technology applied to servers, switches and storage equipment, it is possible to obtain energy, room and cooling benefits.
“Optimize and predict actions depending on the circumstances of the moment”.
Operation, distribution and information storage layers
The Data Center is split in three layers:
A single platform for the core network of the Data Center with high density equipment that will offer high performance, scalable and flexible solutions. Some of its key features are::
It encompasses a unified structure on a 10 Gb Ethernet network for the cluster, Local Area Network (LAN) and Storage Area Network (SAN) traffic. This system simplifies connections: it reduces the number of adapters, cords and commutators needed and it lets hosts connect to any network through a unified Ethernet interface. Some of its features are:
It unifies the computing, network and storage equipment access resources. It is optimized to speed up the adoption of virtualization environments and to help reduce the TCO and the resource supply response time.
Furthermore, the Data Center has accurate energy and air conditioning systems that enable backup and redundancy of the systems to protect the communication infrastructure. It guarantees a high availability of power and AAC services. It is reliable; it prevents the systems from stopping in case of failure and critical equipment from damaging.
The equipment’s settings allow:
