Banque de France: inventory of computer servers

Difficulty:

Like any banking and financial institution Banque de France relies on a complex information system, which needs a very large number of computer servers. It is essential for the teams responsible for the maintenance of the information systems to be able to inventory these servers regularly. These operations take time and pose risks: they require manipulations which can damage the equipment or even more simply, cause cable disconnections, i.e. IT incidents that are often detrimental.

What is the solution? :

The solution implemented by UBI Solutions has made it possible to perform inventories in near-real-time as a result of radio-identification. All that is necessary for this is to go into the server room and, using a detector terminal, collect the information transmitted by the identification chips installed on the servers. The inventory is done in just a few seconds!
