“Slim management is the preferred management style for data centers”, says Global Data Center CEO, Moshe Lasman.
“The focus should be on solutions that are tailor-made for the client and on expanding the variety of business the organization engages in, while simplifying procedures and services,” said Lasman in the C3 CEO and CIO forum conference of People and Computers. Lasman claims that “Our goal is to push forward a local market leader in the arena of hosting and cloud services.”
“Our perception is that management of a data center is best when it’s slim. The focus must be placed on tailor made solutions for the client, with an emphasis on his satisfaction and on expansion of the variety of businesses the organization offers. This must be done while simplifying procedures and services,” said Moshe Lasman, CEO of Global Data Center. The company is currently running a new hosting and backup service enterprise out of an underground facility in the industrial zone in Herzliyah Pituach. According to Lasman the “company’s vision is to become local market leaders in the hosting and cloud services arena.”
Lasman first introduced the enterprise in the CS CEO and CIO forum recently held by People and Computers in Budapest, Hungary. He is a market veteran now 30 years in the business, who previously held senior positions in HP and IBM.
The new data center funding came from VIOLA investment fund. Heading its board is Meir Nissanson, formerly the CEO of IBM Israel for 16 years, as well as having filled various senior positions in IBM Europe.
Lasman pointed out that “our shareholders invested in our experience, which comes to 100 man years, and a background in construction, operation and management of data centers, big data and so forth.”
Lasman quoted a study done last year among data center managers from which it emerges that the major problems with cloud service trafficking are security and access to data.
The company’s five-storey building in Herzliyah’s hi-tech zone has the capabilities needed to host and operate information systems for numerous organizations, while maintaining complete physical separation between the organizations and preventing friction. The building is geared to provide all DR services with double communication infrastructure for each communication provider, unique and separate work areas for every company, and of course, physical and technological security.
“The location was no random pick,” said Lasman. “It provides convenient access in emergencies and meets all of the strictest of security regulations.” “We are set up to provide hosting services to operational computer units, DRP services and various integration services for computer rooms,” he indicated. Clal Insurance, a major Israeli insurance company is one of Global Data Center’s clients, and Lasman commented that “the facility being fully operational, the entire computer server room of the company is smoothly run here.”
