Silivri Municipality Achieved Control and Energy-Saving with Microsoft Private Cloud Solutions
“As Silivri Municipality, we transformed the technology to the mechanism that gives happiness and we use the system to make life easier.”
Özcan IŞIKLAR, Silivri Belediye Başkanı
Silivri Municipality follows the pace of technology to protect public resources closely. As a result, in 2013, the municipality established its own private cloud with Hyper-V (Windows Server 2012) which is a Microsoft private cloud solution.
The cloud system transformed 25 pieces of physical media servers to only 3 servers. Therefore, it enabled the municipality to increase control while achieving savings on energy and cooling. Previously 200,000 kWh of electricity were being consumed for operating
and cooling annually. The ratio was decreased half to half with the consolidation.
Setup of the system automated the municipality’s own IT processes end-to-end by using System Center Configuration Manager, System Center Endpoint Protection and System Center Virtual Machine Manager.
A Tier3 system room that was set up as a part of the private cloud system and within the room all UPS and air-conditioning devices were designed to be active or active redundant, which ensured the continuity of the system. A gas-based fire extinguisher which
includes a 7/24 monitoring system equipped with temperature, water, humidity, voltage and fire censors, capable of informing the curators by calling, sending messages, e-mails in the event of fire was set up. Furthermore, as a part of the agreement made for
the project, the mission critical data are backed up at Turkcell datacenters every day and two-layer-protection is supplied.
