Predica, together with Microsoft, has committed to the Baku European Games 2015 by designing and delivering the IT infrastructure for highly available, resilient back-office.
The project occurred to be a multi-layer one, involving different tech units in Predica. They were working on the data center and infrastructure design and deployment (utilizing technologies such as Windows Server, System Center Operations Manager, Configuration Manager, Hyper-V, Virtual Machine Manager) and IT service management (using System Center Service Manager, Orchestrator). The entire on-premise infrastructure has engaged ~20 physical servers.
Also, to provide the accurate level of safety for the full deployment, we took necessary measures in Identity and Security area involving configuration of Active Directory Federation Services with Forefront Identity Manager. On top of that, for even better performance, our tech experts deployed Office 365 package for better communication and collaboration between the project teams.
