The European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) is an intergovernmental organisation created through an international convention agreed by a current total of 30 European Member States. EUMETSAT’s primary objective is to establish, maintain and exploit European systems of operational meteorological satellites. EUMETSAT is responsible for the launch and operation of the satellites and for delivering satellite data to end-users as well as contributing to the operational monitoring of climate and the detection of global climate changes.
“For more than 10 years, the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research GmbH - UFZ has been using the load balancer software BalanceNG to secure IT services. The configuration consists of two Dual node clusters. Each cluster consists of a Dual node HA setup with bngsync session table synchronisation. The network connection is designed once with 10Gbs and 25Gbs. Different services are secured e.g. http (websites, Nextcloud), dns, smtp, imap, ldap, radius. The targets are all configured for DSR mode. The use of the BalanceNG software offers us a good protection of system-critical services, enables flexibility during maintenance work and requires very little administrative effort.”
