Ainkaboot believes Clusters and Grids will provide the computing power for business in the coming decades, not individual servers and we are working to build a structured system that allow this provision in a simple scalable and affordable manner.
When moving your data centre to a clustered environment there are numerous aspects to consider:
Before making any important decision it is vital to consider your actions. Purchasing a cluster and planning for the future requires careful consideration in order to take maximum advantage of the situation.
The biggest cost could be an incorrect decisions, if you have little experience in designing clusters it is important to get good quality advice before deciding anything about the project. There is a wealth of information out there about clustering and much of it is relevant and important. However every business is different and the requirements will always be individual.
If designing the cluster in house is necessary or Ainkaboot can provide their experience to support your efforts.
Through careful planning and staged implementation it is possible to seamlessly migrate to Grid Technologies. Grids are simply an extension of clustering concepts to a Wide Area Network and make use of scheduling and queueing while implementing improved security features. Grids rely on a Workload Management System (WMS) and using the information it has about the location of the data and system resources it can assign the task in the most efficient manner.
Moving to Grid Technology can be simple and seamless. Ainkaboot can provide training, support, hardware and software services throught the process.
