Our company is going global and we require a Layout of the world with the location of all our servers in use and their location and status.
The project is described as such:
To create a Flash Application that dynamically will add edit and drop "servers" and their location overlayed on a world map. A list of servers should accompany the map on the side.
The location of the servers should be approximately correct on the World map according to the IP address entered. This can be looked up using a general IP location service. We generally want this to be correct for the City it is located.
We will be able to ADD a server using its IP address and the server will then be added to our list and show up on the map automatically.
Servers are numbered, have names and functions. We should be able to set details for each server. Including, Exact Location, Name, IP Address, Function, Support Tel, Support Company, OS details and so on. This "Details" section should roll down if the user clicks on the server information panel icon for that server.
There Needs to be an "Alive" notice that stays green when the server is pinged every minute or so. If there is no response this should go RED and alert us with a an alert email. In the panel for servers we want to see only a preview of information. The Green Light, The Name and IP and the PING Time in ms , Possibly the Country.
I would also like an "activity" display so we can see the application is working in the background. Black box with Green text scrolling would be good. This can be the same as a DOS command line PING command.
We want room for at least ten servers in the server panel and map.
The visual style is AS important as the functions for this project and every attention to detail should be taken. Icons should be well thought out and designed for us. If the interface had black backgrounds and Green text and icons in colour that would be great.
We will spare no expense to have this application from a well established team or individual who pays attention to design and detail to make this happen the way "we" want.
We prefer a professional outfit with much experience and we would prefer to see prior work on this level.
Coding should be fully annotated and reported as often as possible and kept in an open format with a an eye for expansion.
