eGovernment Via Active-Active Cloud Platform

13.07.2015 00:00:00

Background

Ningbo, China, in northeast Zhejiang province, exported USD$115 billion worth of electrical products, textiles, food, and industrial tools in 2013. Ningbo’s administrative district is home to more than 7.5 million people and in the midst of rapid economic and population growth. To serve public’s needs, Ningbo is part of a national effort to provide more accessible and comprehensive eGovernment services.

Challenges

A majority of Ningbo’s municipal government offices originally built independent data centers equipped with their own dedicated servers, storage, and backup systems and running their own QA, website and service systems.

Impaired data sharing

The city operated nearly 40 separate departmental systems running more than 100 different office applications. Without a unified management system, data silos emerged to make cross-departmental data sharing for Big Data analysis and decision-making impossible.

Poor security and reliability

The large number of systems and varied equipment made it impossible to standardize security to the same level across departments or make the independent systems suitably reliable. Failures frequent ground systems to a halt and availability rates were poor.

Low O&M efficiency

Each data center needed one or two technicians for O&M. Each center’s technical staffs were frequently unable to meet existing requirements and the number of technicians required for expansion increased O&M costs significantly.

Solution

Huawei built a new cloud-based, active-active eGovernment system to improve data-sharing, security, reliability, and O&M efficiency.

ManageOne single-cloud platform

A Huawei ManageOne single-cloud platform carries eGovernment extranet services from multiple micro data centers and brings widely dispersed software and hardware under the same management system.

ManageOne uses an innovative Virtual Data Center (VDC) approach that provides:

  • Flexible resource scheduling
  • Unified computing
  • Service and data management
  • Data-sharing capabilities

Active-active data centers

Huawei chose an active-active (sometimes called “dual active”) data center solution. An active-active data center is a network of independent processing nodes that use replicated databases to access a single application from all nodes. The system automatically load-balances requests so that if one node fails the network switches to another.

Ningbo’s system connects two active-active data centers with bare fiber. Each center uses a virtualized gateway and 4-node cluster with mirroring technology to synchronize the databases in real-time.

Benefits

Ningbo’s smart system provided much-improved eGovernment services and several other important benefits.

Improved data-sharing

In the first phase of the project, Huawei migrated 20 of the 40 municipal departments to the new platform. The migration broke up data silos and made cross-departmental data-sharing for Big Data analysis and decision-making much easier. The remaining 20 departments will migrate sometime in the future.

Better service continuity and reliability

The active-active data center lost no data and enabled zero automatic failover Recovery Time Objective (RTO).

Improved O&M efficiency

O&M costs dropped significantly, reducing the TCO by 50% and slashing the number of technicians required from 70 to 15, alleviating a chronic shortage of qualified personnel.
