From now on, we will share the coolest and most characteristic IT cloud practice cases from many user success stories. If you are worried about the selection and architecture layout of your business on the cloud, or worried about the stability of the new technology, you may spend 2 minutes to read them.
Today, the Cloud IT success story is about the Copperbelt Finance Authority.
Tongling City Finance Bureau is a constituent department of the Tongling Municipal People's Government in charge of financial revenue and expenditure, fiscal policy and supervision of state-owned assets. It is mainly responsible for implementing the financial system in Tongling City, organizing financial revenues in accordance with policies, ensuring financial expenditures, managing local financial funds, and promoting the development of industrial and agricultural production and various undertakings.
The complexity and size of operation and maintenance systems at all levels of the financial intranet and outtranet are not conducive to efficient operations
Before 2016, the Finance Bureau of Tongling City, Anhui Province, has been improving the construction of information technology platform one after another, and many systems have been put online. The early construction of information technology is the use of "one machine, one application" model, with the gradual increase in the system, this kind of information island, chimney IT architecture problems gradually exposed, such as decentralized management complex, more equipment in the server room, low utilization, etc..
And with the continuous evolution of social informatization, the scale of financial information stock resources continues to increase, as well as the new requirements put forward by the centralized electronic payment management of the State Treasury, making a total of more than a dozen municipal operation and maintenance systems for the financial internal and external networks of the Finance Bureau, involving more than 20 servers. This does not include systems and servers that are operated and maintained by municipalities and counties themselves, and the various data interaction hubs generally face challenges such as little availability, inactive applications, and insufficient openness.
In order to better support the centralized electronic payment management needs of the State Treasury of Tongling Finance Bureau as well as its future innovative development, in 2016, the Finance Bureau of Tongling, Anhui Province, carried out the construction of a cloud platform to integrate the existing scattered systems and achieve data sharing and business collaboration. To achieve rapid deployment and flexible expansion of data center infrastructure and build a new generation of data centers, the Tongling Finance Bureau focuses on several aspects: security, reliability, convenience, and scalability.
Golden Finance data on the cloud. (in the) cloud (computing) Information security is key
The Tongling Finance Bureau has demonstrated a number of cloud computing solutions, and after comparison, this solution and a well-known foreign brand can meet the construction needs of the unit and guarantee the stability, reliability and future scalability of the system operation, but the enterprise cloud hyper-convergence architecture is more complete, which covers a full range of systems such as computing, networking, storage and security, and for the Tongling Finance Bureau, the overall cost performance is better than foreign vendors. At the same time, this solution hyper-convergence solution is easier to operate, easier to troubleshoot, low learning cost, so that the IT architecture is drawn is what you get. The choice of this solution also meets the requirements of localization and is able to provide diverse and rich security and optimization functions from layer 2 to 7, which, coupled with the excellent localization service, the Tongling Finance Bureau finally chose to adopt this solution.
Considering the importance of information security, Tongling Finance Bureau deployed the enterprise-level cloud in 2 separate areas: the intranet area of the Golden Finance Project and the extranet area of the Internet-based business, with different services deployed in the two areas.
Golden Finance Project Intranet. Through the use of six newly procured hyper-converged all-in-one machines, all of the more than 10 core business systems of the Golden Finance Project intranet were migrated to the enterprise cloud, with all services deployed in five logical regions as required. 23 virtual machines are currently live.
Internet-based business extranet. Through the utilization of four hyper-converged all-in-one computers purchased earlier, as well as a set of external storage devices. At present, three sets of environments have been migrated, such as state-owned asset management, three agricultural and three capital management and anti-virus servers, etc. Subsequently, the Finance Bureau can expand the underlying resource pool of the Internet convergence cloud according to the planning, and deploy all Internet services on the enterprise-level cloud platform one after another.
After reconfiguring with the enterprise-class cloud hyper-converged architecture, the data center server room of Tongling Finance Bureau has initially completed the construction of the integration framework, laying a solid technical foundation for the full realization of overall physical resource integration and invocation in the future.
