Catapult BI’s Capacity to Support a Distributed Workforce and Distributed Projects
Catapult BI’s Network
High-speed private data connections link Catapult BI’s offices to remote data centres using a hub and spoke architecture that limits most network failures to a single office.
This private network connects to the internet at two widely separated locations, eliminating the possibility of a single point of failure. If one connection fails, the other can provide sufficient bandwidth to meet company demand.
Two data centres provide Catapult BI with a fully redundant capability designed to protect against catastrophic failure in either centre. The target recovery time for such an event is 24 hours. Recent testing has shown that operations can be fully restored in less than the target time.
Catapult BI’s data centres provide adequate capacity for management, administration and the needs of the many development projects that are in progress at any time. An extensive array of servers supports virtual machines for the development teams and a new virtual machine can be configured and put into operation in a few minutes, giving a considerable degree of flexibility and ensuring high productivity.
Catapult BI employs cloud services from Azure, AWS and Google to provide for its internal needs and to support client’s workloads. Often these services are integrated into a hybrid cloud solution incorporating Catapult BI’s in-house infrastructure.
To meet specific client requirements Catapult BI has often delivered and supported applications using cloud services hosted on less well-known platforms.
Telephony and Remote Operations
Security and Identity
Catapult BI has implemented Active Directory to control access for all employees. Additionally, “two-factor authentication” is widely used for secure access in compliance with current industry standards.
Catapult BI’s data security is enhanced by use of network software that detects any unusual activity, allowing the infrastructure team to act upon all threats appropriately. To further protect Catapult BI’s systems and any client material stored on Catapult BI’s infrastructure, Catapult BI has upgraded its firewalls to include IP packet inspection.
Remote access for Developers
Collaboration for Clients
In many cases Catapult BI’s people work in the client’s environment and use the client’s preferred approach for collaboration and development tools.
Projects undertaken in-house in Catapult BI’s offices can optionally employ tools from suppliers such as:
