Data Center Upgrade
The need to reorganize the Data Center has arisen because of the business growth — the
computing landscape is constantly changing, so the engineering infrastructure needs upgrade to
meet the objectives posed by the Bank. Although the existing cooling system cope with the
current energy density, the possibilities of its scaling are almost exhausted.
Provide the continuity of business processes, maximize the availability of banking services, and improve the quality of customer service
The ICL — KME CS experts completed a package of work that included design, installation and
commissioning of engineering infrastructure of the upgraded Data Center based on APC
InfraStruxure modular configuration.
The engineering infrastructure of Novikombank used APC EcoAisle, an intelligent air
containment solution. Consisting of 12 NetShelter SX rack enclosures and 3 InRow RD air
conditioners, the system enables to achieve stable functions of switch hardware and IT
equipment with a power density of 8 kVA per rack. All network interface cards are connected to
a dedicated local area network on APC by Schneider Electric switches, and StructureWare
Central server with Data Center Expert software installed provides monitoring.
The infrastructure of the Data Center created as the result of the project fully meets the specified
requirements and enables to expand the Data Center capabilities cost effectively at each stage of
