DEPO Computers

The failsafe data center solution is based on building a geographically dispersed cluster configuration of servers connected to the shared storage network SAN, which is also dispersed. The nodes of cluster servers and storage systems are placed in both areas (primary and backup) to create a consolidated system providing all the needed infrastructure services. Such an approach assures permanent availability of all services even if the main data center breaks down. Cost-effective modifications are available where a remote data center may work as a backup system, providing access to a limited range of main services in case of main DPC failure.


Cloud Solutions

The DEPO Cloud 2000 solution includes a full range of software and hardware aimed to build a private cloud PaaS, as shown on the picture below. Download the datasheet for the new DEPO Cloud 2100 here.




The solution architecture is classic with full reservation and organization of SAN replication to improve failsafe features.




The system configurator is available on DEPO Computers' website.

At the present there are two approaches in choosing the platform for virtualization management depending on the number of users. If the number of users and servers is less than 500 and 50 respectively, Microsoft VMM can be used as part of MSCE. In case of exceeding number of users and servers Microsoft VMM Enterprise is installed. In both cases Microsoft Self Service Portal can be used to enhance the virtualization management comfort.


It is possible to choose from 2 to 8 physical servers DEPO Storm 3350S1/S2:


CPU Server Board Memory San Controller Lan Adapters
Intel® Xeon®
Processor E5-2650
Intel S2600GZ 64Gb QLogic QLE-2562 8Gb Dual Port FC HBA or LSI 9200-8e Intel 82576 Dual-Port Gigabit Ethernet Controller 4-8 ports


Or from 2 to 8 physical servers DEPO Storm 3300V2:


CPU Server Board Memory San Controller Lan Adapters
Intel® Xeon®
Processor 5650
Intel S5520HC 48Gb QLogic QLE-2562 8Gb Dual Port FC HBA or LSI 9200-8e Intel 82576 Dual-Port Gigabit Ethernet Controller 2-8 ports


DEPO Storage 5312 is used as a failsafe storage system available with SAS controllers (in this case server SAN controllers should be SAS) either with FC/iSCSI controllers. If a replication option is needed it is possible to use two storage systems (in this case, the replication process between two systems is supported only through FC or iSCSI interface).


Any optional infrastructure equipment is available to install in the private cloud. All the equipment present in DEPO Cloud 2000 configurator can be placed in one standard 42U rack.
