Gemmantics Hive has been designed to deliver IT-services with best reliability. Therefore, reliability aspects have been considered during the development process in all relevant layers:
- based on well tested community driven S/PHI/nX project
- developed and tested in our automatic testbed
- bundles continuously tested
- critical services configured with failover functionality
The system management environment of Gemmantics Hive is shipped with an integrated monitoring subsystem. Thus, all relevant features of the IT-infrastructure will be monitored and analyzed automatically.
Our monitoring solution provides
- multi-level monitoring
- out-of-band monitoring
- collectors, and
- supports various network protocols.
In order to avoid runtime problems of the IT-infrastructure we developed our modular test environment to test
- operating system and software deployment,
- service delivery, and
- system overall consistency.
All Gemmantics Hive Bundles representing vital services are configured to support failover functionality. These are, in particular,
- Directory and authentication services,
- Resource management,
- Database and
- Web services.
