New Vetter Data Processing Center is Officially Certified

IT experts of TÜV Süd, a German industrial testing organization, have certified the new data processing center at Vetter's headquarters in Ravensburg, Germany. According to TÜV Süd, the pharmaceutical service provider has fulfilled all criteria required to meet the European DIN EN 50600 standard. The certification signifies that sensitive customer and process data are protected in a best manner possible. Within the certification process, seven IT systems-related areas were screened including security systems, power supply, and the center construction itself. For international pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies looking to partner with a contract development and manufacturing organization, this certification represents an important selection criterion. Vetter completed the new data processing center in January 2016, within the two-year period scheduled for the project. The company opted for an in-house solution in order to secure sovereignty and control of customer and process data.

“Digitalization is one of the megatrends nowadays. We are working on numerous initiatives in this sector such as the increased connectivity between our customers and us as their manufacturing partners”, said Vetter Managing Director Oliver Albrecht. The new in-house data processing center supports these connectivity activities. Within the certification process, the functionality of the new center was extensively verified in two sectors. Part one was organizational aspects such as emergency plans and access authorities, while part two covered technical components. “The certification proves that once again, we are achieving a very high quality and security level in this sensitive area”, added Titus Ottinger, Vetter’s Senior Vice President for Finance, Controlling and IT.

The new center is integrated within a multi-functional building and covers a surface area of approximately 3,800 square feet. Half of the space is dedicated to technical equipment such as servers, while the other half is for media systems such as power supply and climate control technology. The data processing center offers an innovative construction design including a safety cell that protects technology and data from external physical hazards. Cutting-edge IT systems including storage systems, network components and flash storage technologies enable the operations of the data center. In addition, an emergency generator is in place to supply electricity in the event that there is a failure in the public power supply. A back-up system has also been set up to secure sensitive data which are mirrored in real time, and stored on a daily basis in several locations that operate independently from one another. Furthermore, the new data center is built with environmental considerations in mind that include a special temperature regulation system which cools only the necessary areas, thus improving the building’s energy footprint.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
