The Nizwa College of Technology Advanced Diploma for Computer Engineering students headed by their teacher, Mr. Mohammad Zafar Iqbal Khan visited the newly renovated ETC Datacenter last June 9, 2015. According to Mr. Khan, the objective of the visit is for students to have an idea for the real applications of network servers and other server based applications. These Engineering students were the first visitors of the Datacenter after the building renovation.
The Datacenter showcases the new Information Technology high-end projects of the ETC like Vsphere Virtual Desktop Infrastructure that runs under an eight core processor 384GB RAM Fujitsu Eternus DX90, Fortinet 1500D firewall, Fortinet Analyzer, Cisco catalyst 6500 Virtual Switching System, Dell R320/R920 rack servers, Cisco UCS-C220 Identity Service Engine, QNAP Storage server and Cisco 5500 WLAN controller.
The Datacenter is manned by the efficiently-trained technicians from the CSS-Network Group, namely; Arnel Marquez, Jonathan Gonzales, Rommel Halcon, Ashrap Habil, Ghaniya Al-Hinai, and CSS-HoS Said Al-Ramidhi. They also conducted an actual demonstration on the different functions of the technologically-advanced equipment in the center.
During the visit, Mr. Gonzales discussed to the students topics on ISP, firewall and core switches. Mr. Halcon on the other hand, discussed the topics on Camera/Security lock, CUCM and backup storage while Mr. Arnel discussed topics regarding VDI, NCT Application System and servers.
This endeavor was made possible through the efforts of ETC-HoC, Mr. Hamad Sultan Nasser Alaufi, CSS-HoS, Mr. Said Al Ramidhi and Eng’g-HoD, Dr. Saravanan Paramasivam.
