 Shenxin creates a private cloud platform for China Media University and promotes the cloud transformation of University Data Center


In 2018, the action plan for education informatization 2.0 was launched. In order to continuously promote the implementation of education informatization 2.0, China Communication combed the three challenges faced by the schools underlying it architecture and decentralized information construction:

First, the system operation and maintenance is difficult: the school business system adopts a decentralized construction architecture, and it resources (computing, storage, network) cannot be uniformly scheduled and managed. In addition, the operation and maintenance problems such as single point failure of the system kill the business innovation ability of the information center.

Second, the speed of business online is slow: new business deployment online needs to go through research, procurement, deployment, testing and online. The traditional virtualization + external storage architecture of the school makes it delivery process long and cumbersome, unable to meet the needs of large-scale business online in the construction of smart campus.

Third, the IT architecture lacks flexibility: with the development of big data business of the school, the information business of different colleges is gradually integrated into the information center of the school for unified management, so as to achieve data resource centralization, further mining data value, and providing better service experience for teachers and students, but the existing platform cannot cope with the rapid expansion and efficient use of school data.

Break the shackles and upgrade to cloud

In 2018, Zhongchuan carried out multiple rounds of research, coordinated internal and external experts, repeatedly demonstrated solutions from various manufacturers, and finally decided to adopt a deeply convinced private cloud platform construction scheme. The specific deployment of the scheme is as follows:

In the scientific research business area: through the first phase of 6 servers (2 all-in-one computers and 4 original servers), it carries the big data analysis and query system of the intelligent video library, including the components Hadoop (HDFS), neo4j (figure database), tensorflow (Artificial Intelligence Computing Framework) and Web Query Platform. The platform will take advantage of the unique advantages of cloud platform tenant isolation and elastic scaling for scientific research Graduation project research and other businesses provide computing and storage resources. The first phase of cloud platform is a small-scale cluster deployment. After the follow-up business runs stably, the cloud platform will continue to expand. Based on this, it will build a big data platform for broad film and television to serve local TV stations and social media production companies.

Innovative technology, tailored

After the deployment of the private cloud platform construction scheme, the overall architecture of Zhongchuan cloud platform becomes very clear and has five functions:

1. Smooth evolution. Shenxin cloud computing platform takes super integration as the underlying architecture, and the upper layer builds a cloud management platform, which can not only provide data center IAAs layer services, but also has rich PAAS layer services, and provide schools with refined evolution schemes for different scenarios such as disaster recovery backup and multi cloud management, so as to help the development of school informatization.

2. Stable bearing. Through distributed storage technology, Zhongchuan cloud platform creates high-performance, high availability, high expansion storage, and carries key applications and databases of the school. Among them, the key applications include course selection system, one card system, etc., and the key databases include neo4j, etc. At the same time, the cloud platform can also use CDP backup to achieve second level RPO disaster recovery requirements for key businesses.

3. Safety compliance. The platform integrates advantaged security components (firewall, load balancing, network wide behavior management, etc.), which support modular deployment, simple, easy to use and effective.

5. Cost saving. Taking advantage of the high compatibility of the platform, the existing resources of the old users can be fully utilized, and the easy access to the cloud can be realized to save the user cost. As a product and service provider focusing on enterprise level security, cloud computing and infrastructure, Shenxin has been deeply involved in the education industry for 20 years, and has provided products and technical services for more than 80% of colleges and universities in China, more than 70% of Vocational Colleges (including more than 85% of national demonstration colleges) and more than 60% of municipal and county education bureaus, audio-visual education centers and key primary and secondary schools. In the future, we will continue to uphold the mission of making it simpler, safer and more valuable, take root in the education industry, actively participate in and promote the construction of education informatization, help the deep integration of education information technology and education teaching by building a secure network environment, and accelerate the new transformation of education service mode and learning mode.
