Virtualization

Intelligent Decisions is working at a client site within a national intelligence agency supporting a program required building the data infrastructure, hosting infrastructure, enterprise services, and client access systems.  This program is running in a new environment supporting 25,000 clients at a new consolidated campus infrastructure for this community. The environment is heavily virtualized using VMware vSphere with several hundred ESX hosts as well as a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) that will host the desktop environment for the entire community. The messaging environment is Exchange 2007, and the architecture includes Server 2008, Solaris 10, and RedHat Enterprise Linux 5. This environment supports users across three security classification levels; Unclassified, Classified and Top Secret.

ID personnel are leading the virtualization design in addition to sitting on the program engineering review board and helping define and direct high-level systems architecture. In addition, ID also directly participated in the deployment of all the infrastructure and are working as tier 3 support for the deployed systems.
