CROC has been constructing IT infrastructures for many years and is capable of implementing projects of any complexity from equipping a simple server room to a turn-key construction of a data center in compliance with Uptime Institute standards. CROC’s data center projects have already involved 100+ data storage deployments.
Thus far, we have implemented over 1,000 data storage system creation projects and about 3,000 projects on installing business process automation systems. Our specialist competencies guarantee uninterrupted operation of all your IT systems.
When it comes to more complicated IT infrastructures, it is worth noting that CROC has accumulated rich experience in data center construction and operation.
When designing all sites and equipping them with engineering systems, CROC leverages its long-term experience in data center design and construction for large companies such as banks, telecom operators, industrial enterprises, and retailers. CROC constructs data centers in line with Uptime Institute international quality standards, thus protecting data and business process continuity on a 24x7x365 basis.
CROC operates its own data centers certified for compliance with Uptime Institute standards. Kompressor data center meets TIER III requirements and guarantees customers 99.982% availability and thus no more than 1.5 hours of downtime per year. This relatively high degree of data protection is ensured by uninterrupted operation of engineering and power supply systems and the reliability of the data center building itself.
CROC partners with leading global IT vendors. To try various technologies and innovations and simulate infrastructures, the company has established its own Solution Center featuring over 20 systems from various hardware vendors. This demo facility helps customers quickly reproduce IT infrastructures without extra costs.
Hyper-convergence is a new approach to creating a computing infrastructure involving ready-to-use software-defined modules composed of standard hardware components. In response to the growth of business requirements, IT capacity can easily be expanded by adding similar modules to existing infrastructure. The advantages of hyper-converged solutions include:
CROC cooperates with all leading hyper-converged solution vendors, including HPE SimpliVity, Nutanix, Cisco, and Dell EMC.
CROC is capable of completing projects of any level from equipping a simple server room to constructing geographically distributed fault-tolerant data centers. CROC performs the entire range of activities relating to data center design and computing and network equipment installation.
CROC partners with global leading hardware and system software vendors such as Dell EMC, HPE, Hitachi Data Systems, Huawei, Oracle, Fujitsu Technology Solutions, NetApp, Inspur, Violin Memory, etc.
Such cooperation allows a customer to try and choose the best solution for creating their own IT infrastructure (data storage systems, servers, etc.)
CROC offers solutions from the leading mobile data center manufacturers. Today, businesses need agile IT infrastructures, and this is why mobile data centers are becoming more and more popular all over the world. These are integrated solutions combining all hardware, telecommunications and engineering infrastructure in one container.
To make management of IT infrastructure of any scale simple and convenient, CROC offers a solution for centralized management of IT and telecommunications infrastructures based on software by various vendors. The solution contains a set of systems for managing telecommunication networks, servers, applications, and data storage system components so that administrators can simultaneously reconfigure hundreds or thousands of servers.
CROC cooperates with financial units of major IT vendors to offer co-financing services in order to accelerate innovations and reduce financial burden on customers, implements highly demanded import substitution projects, and rolls out its Hardware as a Service (HaaS) offering to reduce infrastructure TCO.
CROC offers an all-in-one solution comprising technical support, equipment maintenance, and data center outsourcing.
The Service Center of CROC's Computing Systems Department provides:
CROC offers customers IT system migration to standard x86 servers in order to keep high-performance infrastructure for the increasing number of new business tasks.
*According to HPE’s survey
Comprehensive monitoring based on Zabbix open source software provides access to up-to-date status information on the entire IT infrastructure. CROC developed extensions to Zabbix platform that can replace expensive proprietary tools used to monitor enterprise-class data storage systems by Hitachi Data Systems, Dell EMC, IBM, HPE, and other vendors. Zabbix key benefits:
Investment in ICT infrastructure accounts for up to 80% of company’s IT costs. In order to make investment more efficient and reduce budget load, CROC jointly with leading hardware manufacturers offers IT project financing services such as an opportunity to pay in instalments; assistance in obtaining credits; and lease and rent agreements for both separate equipment items and entire IT infrastructure.
As a result, customer can use equipment right after the first payment and save its working capital, control its IT costs and budget more efficiently.
