2010 Year in Review

As we mark the beginning of 2011 we take one last look back at this past year.  The year 2010 marked another very important and eventful year for BTInet. 

After months of planning the customer migrations of all the servers and equipment to our new Tier IV Data Center is completed.  To keep pace with the state-of-the-art technology we upgraded our network backbone to 10 GB Ethernet, all of our Fiber Channel network infrastructure and also upgraded our EMC Networker backup to 10 GB Ethernet.

As Dell set out with new servers, we retired our Dell 1855 and 1955 servers to upgrade to the Dell M1000 series blade chassis and M600/M610/M710 servers.

New services were added to BTInet this past year such as, SolarWinds Orion Monitoring and Support Portal, new EMC CLARiiON series SANs and the new Vulnerability Management Solutions.

2010 was remarkable year for BTInet and much more could be said about this past year. However let’s look forward to what is in store for BTInet for the year 2011. The following are a few bulleted points that our staff will be working on this year:

  • Enhancements to our VMware Virtualization Platform and Cloud Hosting
  • Better automation of our on-line trouble ticketing systems
  • Better threshold monitoring and notification
  • Upgrade our Internet bandwidth with AT&T (first Gb Ethernet customer with AT&T in ND)
  • Deploying new Oracle / Sun Blades with up to 16 cores and 128 threads
  • Deploying new Juniper SRX firewalls running Junos
  • Upgrading our Shared Oracle Hosting infrastructure to Oracle 11g RAC

As we close out of 2010, we look back as we had welcomed new people to our staff, cheered on our existing staff in their pursuit of new certifications and ongoing training.  We had a good year in 2010 as we hope you did too.  Best wishes for a gratifying and successful 2011 from all of us at BTInet.
