Description

A hosting service on a VMware ESXI Hypervisor base

Paas (Platform as a service) : outsourcing of hardware infrastructure, applications and data

We offer managed dedicated virtual servers, you can outsource your servers to our two high-performance data hubs with Swiss TIER III and IV certification; with Hypervisior VMware ESX based hosting services. Moreover, our team of engineers will assist you from the design of your IaaS or PaaS infrastructure architecture and provide advice on the best security strategy practices for your virtual environment.

 

With no investment costs for hardware and software, you benefit from a state-of-the-art server infrastructure offering you high-availability and high performance. EVOK has partnerships with both Microsoft SPLA and Citrix CSP software publishers which provide specific licensing packages dedicated to providers of hosted solutions. These partnership agreements offer the flexibility to lease licenses to the end customer on a pay-as-you-go basis. We offer 4 types of virtual machines available with the current Microsoft Windows or Linux operating systems :

 

  • vServer B-Class : Inexpensive option for low workloads
  • vServer D-Class Standard : Not replicated 1 DC, recommended for heavy workloads
  • vServer D-Class Advanced : Geo-replicated 2 DC, recommended for heavy workloads
  • vServer N-Class : Recommended for CAD applications or those requiring graphics power

Performance and disk space are scalable, according to your changing needs. Data is backed up daily in a remote datacenter away from the main site. Choose the default retention period of 6 or 12 months. Class Advanced virtual machines are geo-replicated machines across two datacenters, the default standard replication is every 4 hours into the replication datacenter. EVOK has an extremely powerful infrastructure that allows the virtual machines to be restarted in the disaster recovery facility.

 

Monitoring and maintenance of the entire network security infrastructure, the datacenter and Hypervisors are included in the service. Depending on the chosen solution, the maintenance and operation of the operating system as well as patch management and support for applications and services are also included.

 

EVOK proposes different secure access methods to your IaaS or PaaS infrastructure via our firewall clusters for site-to-site VPN access or the Pulse Secure VPN-SSL platform in HTTPS and 2FA dual authentication billing, virtual machines are manageable with tools such as Microsoft RDP or SSH.

 

PaaS or IaaS infrastructures are separated virtually by VLANs unique to each specific client, multiple VLANs can be assigned to a single client, and access between them is managed through Juniper Access Appliances. A range of different Internet traffic capacities is available for direct access or through the PaloAlto security platform, which offers filtering with SSL decryption over the https protocol.

FastStorage

This type of cost-effective SAN storage uses a technology that offers an excellent price/performance ratio based on a mix of SAS 10K and SSD disks.

Technologies : SAS/NL-SAS

expandable

Customization

Each vServer can be customized with additional memory, vCPU, SAN storage, without bandwidth limitation to meet your particular requirements.

100% Green Electricity

The electricity in our Datacenter comes from 100% renewable energy. 99.8% Swiss hydroelectric power and 0.2% solar energy. We contribute to the development of renewable energies.

Monitoring & infrastructure management

This system allows our technicians to be immediately informed in the event of a component or service failure and to quickly identify the problem, diagnose and make repairs.

Our data storage infrastructure is based on multiple Hitachi SAN VSPs (100% Data Availability by Hitachi) that use Hitachi Dynamic Tieringm technology, which recalculates data block usage every 24 hours and transfers it to a lower or higher tier (disk group).

Storage on Flash FMD (Hitachi Accelerated Flash Storage), FMD is a technology about 25%-30% more powerful than SSD, it has ASIC NAND processors integrated in the flash, this avoids overloading the disk controllers of the SAN.

The most powerful storage in the world today is the Hitachi VSP G5000 SAN which uses this technology.

  • Patrick et Miguel San Juan
    Patrick et Miguel San Juan Pamisa Vins Sàrl

    We wanted to quickly have a management software adapted to our small and growing company, without investing and without worrying too much about technology. The software as a service (SaaS) provided by EVOK now allows us to save costs and complexity. All our data is also protected and backed up remotely and efficiently.

    Challenges

    The project was the implementation and deployment in SaaS mode of an IT solution integrating business management (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) functionalities targeting Pamisa's business sector and its specific requirements. Certified partner of Selectline® , Swiss leader in management software, EVOK analyzed Pamisa's needs and configured a modular and extensible application to wish, offering all the tools necessary for the complete management of a modern business. EVOK also performed the corporate data migration and guided Pamisa in the transition to the service software. A service provider, EVOK advised and trained its client intensively in a few days in the administration and remote access use of his personalized application.

    Les résultats

    "In a very short time with EVOK we had an operational solution that now covers the needs and internal processes of our company in a relevant way" explains Patrick San Juan, co-director of Pamisa. "Our management is more global, simplified and efficient, while maintaining a structure that is as light as possible".

    "Thanks to the SaaS model, we benefit from a more scalable and reliable solution than most traditional solutions on the market. We now bear no additional costs for installation, support and maintenance. Our IT budget is under control because the settlements are predictable and phased, ”says Migues San Juan, co-director of Pamisa.

    "Our data is automatically backed up on EVOK's secure and redundant servers. It could indeed happen that our data stored on our computers or laptops is damaged or stolen, which would then be a great prejudice for our company" adds Patrick San Juan .
