Enjoy all the High Availability benefits!

High Availability is the key concept for large companies scenarios because it allows
the entire system to work without any interruptions or failures.
There fundamental services in your business that can not stop such as the e-mails
forwarding, the total security of your system and the continuous availability of
web service. Our proposal for a corporate scenario is to put two (or more) security
servers IPBLOC.SEC and two communications servers The (IPBLOC.C
operating in high availability, ensuring that these services never fail.
Thus, the mail relay service and perimeter security server IPBLOC.SEC never stops
- if a server fails, the other automatically assumes the functions without the user
even noticing that change. It also ensures the continuous and fast access to your
company web pages, beacause the web server, which is housed in a datacenter outside
the internal network, also works in cluster.
Quick access to information
The users authentication on the system is always faster because the load is spread
over two or more Intranet servers (IPBLOC.I) - which are working in a 'master’ and
'slave’ architecture. Due to this, the access to business applications is quick.
These servers are connected by optical fiber to a SAN (Storage Area Network), where
data is stored. And are these connections that guarantee the speed of access to
Communication without boundaries
Whether for VoIP, whether through traditional phone lines, your company is always
in contact with the world, due to our Unified Communications central (IPBLOC.GT).
In addition to providing all types of communications (Voice, Video, Fax, Email,
SMS, Instant Messaging and Web) through a single appliance, IPBLOC.GT is a Media
Gateway - linking traditional telephony equipment - and also performs functions
of IP PBX.
Being a big company, establishing secure connections between branch offices and
headquarters is also a critical point in this scenario. In order to do that, each
branch has a VPN server (IPBLOC.C, which also provides security functions and communication
services) to establish secure communication channels with headquarters.
Faster access to information
- ♦ The fiber optic connections between the Intranet servers and SAN (where all information
is stored) ensure the speed of the system. Moreover, these connections are more
robust, reliable and provide a higher bandwidth.
Growth without limit
- ♦ If you saw the previous scenarios for micro, small and medium companies, you may
deduce that IPBLOC growth power is inexhaustible. Scalability is one of the secrets
of our solutions success.
E-mail service never fails
- ♦ The e-mails forwarding inside and outside the company never fails because the
server in charge of this service is operating in high availability.
Intranet servers of the company’s headquarters are in 'master’ and 'slave’ architecture
and are connected by optical fiber to a SAN. So this scenario allows fast access
to information, regardless the number of authenticated users. One of these servers
can also be an Intranet server to support business applications, in this case the
Document Management System and Workflow, iPortalDoc.
The company’s Unified Communications services are provided by IPBLOC.GT central,
which can be a Media Gateway and an IP PBX.
Both IPBLOC.SEC security servers (protecting the entire perimeter of the enterprise)
and the web servers IPBLOC.C (keeping this service always available) are working
on cluster. There is also a branch connected to the headquarters, connected via
a “secure tunnel information” (VPN).
Separate Intranet, Communication and Security services with added value and redundancy
The solution for large enterprises reinforces the security and operability of the
company through the proliferation of various types of Intranet, Communication and
Security services, in order to fit the needs of a wide number of users or the geographical
dispersion of a company.The high availability of the system is assured by the IPBLOC.C
cluster outside the company for the web service and by the cluster IPBLOC.SEC for
the secure communications with the outside world. The appliance IPBLOC.GT features
unified communications and media gateway, fully protected from the ouside world
by the IPBLOC.SEC cluster.The high availability of intranet sevices is guaranteed
by Master / Slave IPBLOC.I servers architecture connected by optical fiber to a
Storage Area Network.
