Research Project Automation

For this year’s cooperation project of the University of Mannheim and the IT service provider CEMA kicks off cooperation of Hochschule Mannheim and IT-Systemhaus CEMA on March 27, 2012. “30 students of the Bachelor Automation / data center / cloud technology are computer science under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schramm, head of the Institute in three and a half months of a development task around the theme” make. By CEMA Oliver Buring, Managing Director of CEMA IT Services GmbH and Thomas Weber, Managing Director of CEMA, the project coach specialists for Informationssysteme GmbH. Project description CEMA provides customers implementation and operations tasks in the area of server and cluster like about setting up servers, the implementation of virus protection or the limbs of servers in monitoring or backup solutions. These tasks are often identical in their process, but vary by custom parameter.

The various partial processes of such a task based tool, manually implemented in part. The Bumping this individual partial processes is usually gradual and manually. There is potential for optimization: the manual implementation is also error-prone and time-consuming. The cloud promises simple and flexible solutions. To the o.a.. must however be processes standardizes and automates to achieve a significant increase in the efficiency in the data center operation and a significant increase in the quality. The initialization or procurement process shall be by a self service portal”simplifies and minimizes time.

In the project, technologies from VMware, TrendMicro, Microsoft, HP, IBM, Microsoft and CommVault come to fruition. The results of the students at the CEMA will be presented in late June. After careful consideration and assessment of the individual solutions by the IT specialists of CEMA, the students receive a feedback. It is planned that the so developed tools in practice are used. Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schramm.” We look forward to the project, but us because we develop for the first time not only software, deal with the design of IT services and they then implement in a real environment. Of course the whole thing as a modern Web application is provided. The special difficulty or the challenge stems from the diversity and heterogeneity of the used hardware and software systems. Professionally as personally students are strongly encouraged and can detect even a tense anticipation.” “Twitter: launch like: research project automation in the data center” of Hochschule Mannheim and CEMA.
