Broadleaf Services Inc. Key Developments

Middlesex Water Company Engages Broadleaf Services Inc. to Improve Network Performance Among Their Multiple Office Locations

Broadleaf Services Inc. announced that Middlesex Water Company engaged Broadleaf to help them improve network performance among their multiple office locations. Middlesex Water Company had recently completed a large scale ERP implementation to streamline its business processes and was additionally seeking ways to shore up network performance between its New Jersey and Delaware offices. SAN to SAN replication traffic between those two sites was using a lot of the bandwidth and replication times were unacceptably long. With replication traffic utilizing the bandwidth, end users located at any of the company's branch sites were challenged by slow application performance for Office, finance and accounting applications that are centralized in their New Jersey data center. After assessing Middlesex Water Company's challenges, the Broadleaf team recommended Riverbed Steelhead appliances. Riverbed products accelerate the broadest range of applications that are critical to business. They make IT infrastructure consolidation effective. File, email and application servers can be run from a main office without sacrificing performance for branch workers. The simplicity of the Steelhead appliances further enhances the benefit of this solution. The appliances deploy in minutes without changes to applications, users, routers, or other IT infrastructure. The appliances are also scalable so that they can grow with the business and thus provide investment protection. Middlesex Water tested the Riverbed appliances for two weeks and proved that they were able to improve bandwidth utilization by 3x and reduce redundant TCP/IP traffic by 70%. Replication now completes in half of a day and end users can work efficiently from any office with a LAN like performance.

RLS2000.Com Engages Broadleaf Services on Virtualization Project to Improve Uptime and Performance

Broadleaf Services Inc. announced that RLS2000.com Inc. (RLS2000) engaged Broadleaf to consolidate their servers through virtualization as part of a solution to improve reliability, uptime, scalability and performance. After discussing RLS2000's needs and goals, Broadleaf recommended a virtualization solution utilizing both VMware and NetApp. Server virtualization with VMware has helped improve the RLS2000 infrastructure. Server maintenance can be performed without any downtime; likewise the impact of any hardware failures can be minimized as the new VMs can be moved to another server within seconds. The hosted web solutions now have a new environment that is ready for anything and performance has been increased dramatically, while still leaving plenty of room to expand. Shared storage is required to take full advantage of the server virtualization solution in the areas of migration, failover, and recovery. Broadleaf recommended that RLS2000 bring the NetApp HA FAS 2220 with 10K SAS drives into their environment for 99.999% uptime and high database performance. In addition to supporting the VMware environment, the NetApp enterprise class storage platform is a huge asset to RLS2000 as it provides: space efficient snapshots, deduplication, multiprotocol support, and application specific backup and recovery functionality. Deduplication slows storage growth costs significantly. Space efficient snapshots serve as recovery points for any onsite data loss or corruption. The project also included two Dell R620s to provide resource HA and vMotion capabilities. A VMware Acceleration Kit was selected to provide the appropriate licensing and features and allow for future expansion. The Broadleaf professional services team implemented the solution for RLS2000 and has since completed the knowledge transfer, allowing them to manage the new environment.
