The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has implemented Cisco's Data Center architecture to increase operational flexibility, improve its business operations and streamline its online trading platform.

With the intense competition in capital markets, SET has used innovative and proven technology from Cisco to develop new models of trading, improve management, support service expansion and facilitate new offerings to meet rapid changes in investors' demands.

SET decided to upgrade and strengthen its IT infrastructure with networking, data center and security solutions to boost the global competitiveness of Thailand's capital market.

Utilizing Cisco Unified Fabric technology to virtualize server interfaces and consolidate server traffic management, SET has significantly improved system performance and consolidated distributed data centers effectively.

The Cisco Unified Computing System (Cisco UCS) helps SET improve its productivity, increase flexibility and quickly respond to the rapid changes of their business environment, Cisco said.

Cisco UCS is designed to help reduce investment costs of connectivity technology that links servers with networking and storage resources by helping to reduce requirements for adapter cards, cables and switch ports. Cisco UCS supports 10 Gigabit Ethernet, enabling faster storage connection.

The integrated network in the SET data center comprises Cisco UCS B200 M3 Blade Servers installed in the Cisco UCS 5108 chassis and Cisco UCS 6248 UP fabric interconnects. Cisco fabric interconnects provide end-to-end connectivity and management for blade servers, improving the efficiency of LAN for blade servers, data storage and retrieval through Cisco Nexus 5548 Switches.
