In­terGlobe Tech­nol­ogy Quo­tient (ITQ), is the of­fi­cial dis­trib­u­tor of Trav­el­port Galileo in In­dia & Sri Lanka and Trav­el­port Worldspan, through Calleo Dis­tri­bu­tion Tech­nolo­gies in five mar­kets across the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion.

To­day, stor­age sys­tems form a crit­i­cal part of an or­ga­ni­za­tion’s net­work in­fra­struc­ture. With the amount of data grow­ing at an in­cred­i­ble rate, stor­age strat­egy must keep pace. It is emerg­ing as a busi­ness im­per­a­tive for or­ga­ni­za­tions to se­lect the right tech­nol­ogy for the pri­mary stor­age sys­tem, im­ple­ment solid backup pro­ce­dures and en­sure on­go­ing man­age­ment of the sys­tem.

Within In­terglobe Tech­nol­ogy Quo­tient, stor­age in­fra­struc­ture is re­quired to pro­vide high lev­els of per­for­mance. We can squeeze many TBs into ev­ery rack space unit, sav­ing mas­sively on the data cen­ter space. Also, all busi­ness- crit­i­cal servers are hosted on the shared stor­age for fault tol­er­ance and to re­duce phys­i­cal in­fra­struc­ture.

We have only ob­ject-based file sys­tem avail­able in our stor­age in­fra­struc­ture, which in­cludes ISCSI con­troller-based stor­age with two more en­clo­sures.

The to­tal in­vest­ment that we made to buy these stor­age tech­nolo­gies was about ` 20 lakh. Within next one year, we plan to add more stor­age en­clo­sures with ex­ist­ing con­troller.

Cur­rently, we are eval­u­at­ing emerg­ing stor­age tech­nolo­gies like flash-based SSDs, au­to­mated tiered stor­age, stor­age vir­tu­al­iza­tion and cloud-based stor­age for our var­i­ous busi­ness needs.
