Telecom operator, datacenter, Germany

Merging a technical and customer service department lead to the rearrangement of several server parks, located in 3 different cities.

The central maintenance center, in charge of all datacenters, manages a mass amount of servers simultaneously, thanks to multiple KVM over IP switches. A custom management system helps the IT managers to automate many daily operational processes. Only in case of irregularities, the IT managers are notified to check what is going wrong. They can take immediate action, over IP or on-the-spot.
