As IT continues to evolve, so must the data center. However, with having to manage many aspects at all times, it is critical for ongoing success to work with the right partner—one who will help you navigate everything from current needs to future plans and endeavors.
Planned, Executed, & Managed
We offer the following services to ensure that all aspects of your data center are planned, executed, and managed—all within industry best practices with highly proven processes—to continuously ensure the best outcomes. Whatever your need, whatever your budget, we can customize the perfect solution for you.
Data Center Assessment Services
All data centers are vulnerable to weaknesses, changes in business needs, and more. It is for this reason that all organizations should initiate Data Center Assessments to ensure that all critical and non-critical systems are running at optimal levels, and to ensure all supported business processes continue to run without fail.
Assessments can be composed of a multitude of highly focused areas. These can include everything from power and cooling, to specific feature / functionality aspects of the environment, to communications infrastructure such as fiberoptic networking, copper, network resilience and storage.
Data Center Design Services
The modern data center has now become the epicenter and foundation for the majority of business process, logistics, data-based business intelligence, and more. As such, the requirements placed on data centers as they relate to performance and reliability are crucial to ongoing business success.
Addressing Business Needs
To address vital business needs, we have developed a highly unique process paired with data center professionals to model, plan and design the full scope of a modern data center’s IT resource: a documented and diagrammatic logical view of all requirements.
From conceptual planning leveraging design thinking methodology, to architectural layout, to the entirety of the infrastructure, we can help you design and build a future-proof infrastructure to meet all business essential computational and non-computational parameters and requirements.
The Key Design Phase
Our unique and proven data center design services act as the key design phase of data center development, where our system architects create a documented and diagrammatic, logical view of a data center: an extensive process that covers all of the data center’s essential computational and non-computational parameters. This includes:
- Number and type of required servers
- Network layout and equipment
- Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
- Data center management
- Required software
Similarly, data center design’s non-computing aspect includes, but is not limited to:
- Physical facility that houses all equipment
- Data center power, cooling and ventilation systems
- Physical data center security, disaster recovery, and business continuity planning
Data Center Deployment Services
After designing the perfect data center comes the arduous task of deployment. And, like any technology, there is no such thing as a plug-and-play, one-size-fits-all solution. Like the design of your data center itself, the equipment chosen for the task must represent your unique business processes and desired outcomes. In short, it needs to be configured properly to meet your needs and planned outcomes.
Time Is Money
Like all aspects of business, time is money, meaning that expediting the deployment of a new data center is measured in dollars, not days or hours. For that reason, our highly skilled team can help you deploy your data center in a timeframe that meets business and financial goals—configuring and testing every aspect to ensure it is done right the first time—on time, and on budget. Our Data Center Deployment Services include:
- Hardware, rack, and software configuration
- Custom imaging
- Asset tagging and tracking
- Solution implementation data migration
Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Planning Services
Unscheduled downtime for any reason is never an option. It can negatively impact clients, incur financial losses, and result in damage to one’s brand reputation. Furthermore, when ensuring disaster recovery is planned appropriately, the totality of possible impacts must be considered. Far more than force majeure aspects of disaster recovery must be planned.
A Wide Range of Specialists
Our world is now impacted by IT security issues, potential power outages, and more—all of which can result in the need for “recovering” from a dire situation. It is for this reason that we have our highly skilled team that encompasses the gamut of professionals ranging from IT security specialists, data center migration experts, to data backup and recovery authorities, and so on—all available to plan for any potential impact on your business.
Data Center Migration
In an always-on, always-connected world, end-users and internal users alike expect everything to be fully operational 24/365. It is for this reason that mitigating risk against prolonged downtime due to migrations is paramount to ensure ROI, clients and staff are happy, productivity is maximized, and that the bottom line isn’t affected.
The Need For Migration
There can be numerous reasons for data center migrations: the need to move due to data and workload increases, the need to adapt to more modern infrastructure including public, private, or hybrid cloud, or the need to move older and more cumbersome legacy infrastructure to a more modernized environment—whatever the case, lengthy downtime is not an option.
In any of these cases, whether it is a new location or a new platform, business agility and productivity are always the focus; therefore, a comprehensive migration strategy is key to success. Our experts can help you make the right decisions, implement the right technology, and follow all the right steps to make any migration a resounding success.
- Risk against service loss
- Business continuity
- Data challenges including corruption or loss
- Technical issues including compatibility
