Client Issues

Virtualization Management:

The client was facing problems with the software updates and patch management of multiple virtual instances, running varied versions of RHEL and other distros in a VMware environment.

Auditing:

One of the major problems the client faced was that of security. The process of assigning policies and granting permissions based upon the specific roles that staffs performed was a big challenge.

Interoperability Management:

The internal workflow was affected because the client was unable to interoperate between various management products from other vendors.

Subscription Management:

The client’s Red Hat Satellite Server made various software channels available based on subscription level. This required planning, configuration and control to ensure only the optimal channels were used for a specific version, based on its role and application compliance related requirements. The client suffered problems when some critical channels got missed out in some of their production VMs.

Our Solution

Red Hat engineers at Taashee Linux Services successfully resolved the client’s challenges in virtualization by upgrading to the latest Satellite Server along with Smart Management as an add-on. This made managing updates and patches in hundreds of virtual machines in the client’s infrastructure much easier.

In order to address the auditing woes, Taashee’s engineers focused upon the role-based administration of RH Satellite Server, enabling administrators in the effective implementation of full audit trials of all the activities. The administrators could now assign policies and grant permissions as per requirements.

We further upgraded the existing Red Hat Satellite Server v5.5 to the advanced Red Hat Satellite Server v5.7 and facilitated the process of scripting commands through the Application Programming Interface (API) feature that resulted in the RH server achieving interoperability with other third-party products.

Finally, the client’s challenges with subscription management were overcome by ensuring that all base and add-on channels were carefully mapped.

Results & Benefits

The client experienced multidimensional benefits from the successful implementation of this project.

Enhanced Security:

An end-to-end secure connection was established and maintained from the client systems to RH Satellite server.

Increased Efficiency:

Faster package delivery to LANs was achieved as desired by the client due to the successful server upgrade.

Better Control:

System processes of the client were stored on local RH satellite servers instead of centralized ones resulting in better control.

Custom Updates:

The automated package delivery system we configured, resulted in custom updates with fine-grained control, which was the need of the hour for the client’s systems.

Better Bandwidth Management:

Effective bandwidth control was achieved with the transactions maintained on the client’s LAN.
