Historically, data centers have employed multiple single purpose networks. Network design is undergoing a transformation to combine traditional networking with the storage fabric to create a higher performance network riding on the same “wire”. Understanding the current environment is key to determining whether to adopt a data center network convergence strategy. We can help assess the enterprise’s priorities and initiatives to determine if a data center network convergence strategy is the right fit.
The days are gone where security was as easy as installing a firewall and antivirus. Today’s threats are coming from both inside and outside of the organization’s walls. It is increasingly more difficult to keep track of critical data, who has access to the data, where the data lives, and where the data is going. Our security professionals with deep technical expertise and specific industry knowledge assess your current security posture, then work to mitigate risk while helping to achieve business goals and/or compliance.
Energy consumption is a critical issue for IT organizations today. Most servers and desktops today are in use only 5-15% of the time, yet most hardware consumes 60-90% of power even when idle. Proper design and use of modern technologies such as virtualization, consolidation, and converged networks allow for not only less spend on hardware, but also lower total cost of ownership. Our experts help assess your current environment and find ways to reduce costs, provide better service levels, and help the environment!
Have your virtualization projects stalled? Are most of your servers completely virtualized? The consolidation of x86 servers was the first step on the path to a fully virtualized infrastructure. Virtualization technologies exist in server, storage and networking infrastructures; whether you desire to move your infrastructure to an internal private cloud, leverage the resources that public cloud providers offer or build a hybrid solution that takes advantage of both technology offerings, we can help with evaluation and implementation.
Is your data center highly available? Do you have both functional and tested disaster recovery plans? We have completed many successful projects including remediation, disaster recovery planning as well as creating disaster recovery sites with full fail-over capabilities. Regardless of how far your data center infrastructure has evolved over the last few years, we can assist in the advancement of your data center design as well as the incorporation of the latest innovative technologies to help increase up-time and survivability.
