Aruba has been chosen by Leica Geosystems, a leader in the development and distribution of products, systems and software for measuring and processing 3D space data, in order to rethink its infrastructure and adapt it to its renewed needs.
Revolutionizing the world of measurement and relief for nearly 200 years, Leica Geosystems creates comprehensive solutions for all professionals involved in the measurement world, such as topographic, engineering, site building and security, civil engineering and power plants. The company is part of the Hexagon Group, the world leader in Geomatica, which, with its own solutions, brings improvements in quality and productivity in industrial and geo-spatial applications.
In particular, Leica Geosystems provides measuring products and services on the territory with a degree of precision ranging from mm to a meter. Among the major commercially available measuring sensors are total stations, 3D scanners, laser distance distances, digital levels, and in particular precision GNSS. The technological evolution of the use of rover-based rover-based satellite receivers with area correction systems has heavily influenced Leica Geosystems infrastructure requirements. Indeed, the nascent market in the early 2000s of precision GNSS required an adequate infrastructure to send real-time information to receivers to ensure proper accuracy. This differential correction service involves processing the receiver’s raw signals from a central server and then redistributing them to each rover and performing the correction with a centimeter accuracy during the GNSS survey.
Leica Geosystems has therefore addressed Aruba to provide a data center infrastructure infrastructure – to accommodate the GNSS calculation center, to make differential correction and to redistribute the service to the users – and at the same time keep the software and the Related data. Aruba has studied a new solution that responds to these needs: the proposal was to migrate customer infrastructure to dedicated servers hosted by Aruba’s proprietary data centers, on which to install client software and create a server Suitably dimensioned.
Leica Geosystems has entrusted the top of the range of Dedicated Servers, the Professional Series, designed for complex and scalable infrastructure, for advanced applications, and in general for all applications that require extreme power and high performance. The latest generation hardware, characterized by the presence of dual power supplies, hardware RAID systems, and hot-swappable redundant hard drives, is able to ensure operational continuity and maximum security. In addition, the Solution designed for Leica Geosystems needs includes a firewall with Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and IDS (Intrusion Detection System) and dual switch switches.
“The reasons for thanking Aruba are many, first of all because they have made an important contribution to designing the starting system,” commented Francesco Matteuzzi, Product Manager at Leica Geosystems. Moreover, at the Italian headquarters we do not have a ‘ So robust IT infrastructure on which to base our services; For this reason, dedicated servers managed entirely by Aruba professionals have been the ideal solution for our needs. ”
“The dedicated server solutions we provide to Leica Geosystems are characterized by high performance and maximum reliability, as well as the assurance of resource exclusivity, given the choice of a dedicated solution. Ultimately, the ideal solution for hosting a software that collects detailed measurement information in real time. – said Simone Braccagni, Commercial Director of Aruba S.p.A. “We are convinced that through Aruba technology, Leica Geosystems will continue to revolutionize the measurement market while at the same time meeting every demand in terms of availability of resources and security.”
