Defence - Case Study

The customer

Indian Navy's Directorate of Information technology at RK Puram New Delhi is the nodal agency of the Indian Navy to deploy IT solutions for our maritime forces.

The challenge

DIT wanted to migrate its existing Email messaging services to a more robust virtualized environment at their primary and DR site. They wanted to deploy the next generation infrastructure which would be scalable and support its ERP and Email solutions. The existing infrastructure was to be upgraded at Sena Bhawan and at RK Puram data centers. It required a trusted supplier with proven experience in supporting the implementation of leading edge server/ storage farm technologies with ability to provide migration services for its applications on the existing Microsoft.

The solution

Ministry of Defence - DIT mandated CCS to supply, install, configure hardware, software and provide migration services to redeploy their existing Microsoft Email and ERP application at their data centers in Sena Bhawan and RK Puram, New Delhi on to the new infrastructure. The CCS team moved the existing deployment of Microsoft messaging and ERP working on MS SQL to the new virtualized environment with provision of built in replication services to the compute infrastructure.

  • Strong CCS and Dell working relationship ensured highly efficient implementation and operational support including responsiveness to general, technical, training enquiries.
