Provisioning New Infrastructure:
F1Linux will rack the equipment, plumb it into the networking and label as necessary after which your administrators can then perform remote configuration.
Decommissioning Existing Infrastructure:
F1Linux will de-rack it and remove it to the DC’s loading dock where a third party the client instructs can remove it for storage or destruction.
F1Linux is situated equidistant to London & Cambridge and can be on-site to your DC within about 1-2 hours. DCs in the UK outside of these areas can still be serviced, but with longer travel times to arrive on-site.
Selected Case Studies from large enterprise clients evidencing the proven experience to configure the hardware, networking, storage & OS host configurations
Queen Mary University London (“QMUL”) Campus Virtualization Platform, Computer Sciences & Electrical Engineering Dept
QMUL was standarizing on VMware and so EECS commissioned me to migrate their Linux XEN Virtualization infrastructure to VMware Enterprise Plus across (2) data Centres.
To ensure a solid base was laid for the VMware to live on, a full refresh of both data centers was performed.
Upgraded the firmware in Dell Hypervisors, Blades & EqualLogic storage as well as the HP meshed Switches.
Replaced batteries in all UPS arrays and cabled the Hypervisors across them.
