IT Infrastructure Modernization

Implementation of Infrastructure Modernization Projects

IT ModernGAMA-1 successfully transformed our Federal client’s complex network architecture environment to their desired “one Unified Office” infrastructure and service model.

GAMA-1 accepted the challenge and designed, implemented and managed major infrastructure modernization projects and sub-projects to include: 

  • The installation, integration and operations of a consolidated data center environment that leverages VMware virtual server technology, NetApp storage, HP SAN Switches and HP Blade Server and networking technologies. The design approach allowed for server orchestration, VM Mobility, Storage virtualization, virtualized network services, policy-based security and application optimization.
  • Upgrading our clients antiquated and disparate analog PBX telephony system to a unified IP-based telephony (Voice over IP) system. This was accomplished by designing and implementing a unified Cisco VoIP infrastructure, IP call processing equipment (Cisco Call Manager, Cisco Unity, and Cisco voice end-point (IP phones).
  • Deployment of a thin-net Private Cloud solution using the PaaS Private Cloud delivery  model. GAMA-1 is preparing for the deployment of the SaaS future Cloud Computing  environment. Our client was one of the first program offices within the agency to  successfully use both a Private Cloud Solution and VoIP. This program remains the  model today for future implementations within the agency.
  • The one critical application to one Unified environment was the implementation of the client’s Enterprise Active Directory service and network file system. The client’s Active  Directory was built upon a single forest with multiple domain trees with multiple sites and it was designed to be scalable, secure, manageable (by each program office domain), and fault tolerant.
