Modernize NIAEP’s Moscow Subsidiary Office

About project

iCore took part in a reequipping Atomenergoproekt Nizhny Novgorod engineering company’s Moscow office (NIAEP, which is a member of Rosatom State Company). Under the project, a computing infrastructure is upgraded and a state-of-the-art multimedia complex is implemented. The solutions created increase the efficiency of workflows, reduce corporate IT systems’ operating costs and lay a foundation for their further development.

Project Aims and Objectives

  • Create a new equipage standard for work stations within the Rostatom parent organization concept – “Future Office” to increase an overall employee performance;
  • Improve employee work stations’ quality of management and operation by using central management, and automation of processes to deploy, deliver and update applications. A target time to prepare and recover a work station is 3 to 5 minutes;
  • Provide maximum information security for work stations using the smart card based authentication and integration with an actual building’s physical security system.

Solutions Used in the Project

When selecting a technology base, iCore experts used multiple criteria including: compliance with customer’s approved standards, the possibility of integration with existing systems, cost value of installation and operation, and ability to deliver within specified (strict) terms. 

To centralize a management of automated workstations, 2 fault-tolerant clusters have been created, based on Lenovo X240 M5 blade servers in Lenovo Flex Enterprise Chassis. Clusters support an infrastructure of virtual servers and work stations (VDI) on the basis of VMware vSphere 6 and VMware Horizon 6 products.

To access virtual automated workstations, Lenovo M73 thin clients are installed. To store data, Hitachi Data Systems VSP G200 data storage is used.

To build a high-performance network, a Cisco VCS cluster is created; a data transmission network uses 16 Gbit Brocade SAN switches, built into a Lenovo chassis.

Telephony and FOC features on automated workstations are based on Cisco IM &Presence and Cisco Jabber software, and integrated with an existing customer’s telephony on the basis of Cisco UCM.

A multimedia complex is based on ClearOne Collaborate Pro, NetUP, Crestron, Extron Share Link and Luidia eBeam Edge equipment.

Results and opportunities

The customer received a high-performance and effective infrastructure with a virtualization of servers and user work stations. The designed set of solutions complies with all project requirements and has been successfully put into operation in the time set. In addition, the Customer has an opportunity to quickly deploy a typical design office which can be integrated into an existing control loop.
