Cisco Datacenter Solutions Consulting FirmData centers are the key to utilizing IT assets to optimize the competitive value of a computer network. For small businesses, data centers have typically evolved in a piecemeal fashion, resulting in a situation where processors and storage devices are underutilized, available communications bandwidth is wasted, teamwork and knowledge sharing is limited, maintenance requirements are excessive, scaling or reconfiguring is expensive, security is poor, seemingly simple modifications become major hassles, and full recovery from disastrous failure becomes almost impossible.

Cisco's latest network products and tools support a new generation of data center architecture that permits ongoing improvements in server, storage, connectivity infrastructure, and applications in a maintainable and cost-effective way. Progent's engineers can help you to select and implement Cisco's connectivity solutions to build a robust basis for your data center and to improve your data center processes in critical areas such as:

  • Processor and storage utilization
  • End-to-end security enforcement
  • Server consolidation
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Business continuance

The important benefits that can be realized as a result of using Progent's network experts to optimize your data center include:

  • Lower TCO: permits IT to significantly reduce acquisition expenses via integration and higher use of formerly isolated equipment, slash operational costs through streamlining and automating administrative jobs, and cut air conditioning and power costs.
  • More Business Flexibility: enables IT to react quickly to evolving business demands by allowing rapid provisioning of application and infrastructure functions from common aggregations of integrated processor, disk, and network technologies. This can improve administrative processes and enable policy-based control.
  • Better Business Robustness: enables IT to defend against breakdowns or intrusions by guarding infrastructure, programs, and data with the highest levels of availability, pervasive protection, and disaster recovery.
  • Improved Service Levels: allows IT to improve business service levels by implementing secure, accelerated access to data center-resident applications and information from any place and at any moment across the enterprise.
