In the beginning of 2006, Infosys launched strategic internal program called
C-Change — Collaborative transformation of Digital Ecosystem aimed at more
effective business alignment of the company’s internal IT services and apps,
achieving business objectives through quantifiable IT business value metrics,
scalable IT infrastructure and business apps through measurable IT performance
metrics, leading to a collaborative delivery of the above two objectives by
involving Infosys businesses. Future proof IT infrastructure was a project under
this programme.
The project was conceptualized across a four-tier architecture-Enhance
scalability of IT infrastructure to match business growth, enable and sustain
high availability and performance, reduce cycle time, and ongoing reduction of
TCO for managing infrastructure services. Having seen an attractive ROI within
18 months of its implementation, the project has added the following components
into its functional areas: (1) SAN based virtual Tape library Implementation for
smaller backup windows and faster recovery (50% improvement over existing
solution). (2) Enhanced security through backup data encryption and replication
to remote site over IP, resulting in Offsite RPO of 2 days. (3) Innovative use
of NAS to eliminate replication of source code across web server farm/s. (4) SAN
environments across continents to complement primary data centers.
