Cisco Datacenter Management Consulting FirmData centers are the key to leveraging IT resources to maximize the business value of an IT network. For small companies, data centers have often evolved in a piecemeal manner, resulting in a situation where processors and storage devices are deployed inefficiently, usable communications capacity is overlooked, collaboration and knowledge sharing is limited, support demands are high, expansion or repurposing is expensive, protection is patchy, seemingly minor modifications turn into major hassles, and complete recovery from disastrous failure becomes almost undoable.

Cisco's most recent networking products and tools support a new generation of data center design that permits ongoing improvements in processor, storage, connectivity topology, and applications in a manageable and economical way. Progent's consultants can assist you to identify and implement Cisco's connectivity products to create a robust foundation for your data center and to improve your operations in critical areas such as:

  • Processor and disk efficiency
  • Comprehensive security policy enforcement
  • Server consolidation
  • Regulatory requirements
  • Disaster recovery

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

  • Lower TCO: permits IT management to significantly reduce acquisition expenses through consolidation and more efficient use of formerly isolated equipment, lower maintenance expenses through simplifying and automating management tasks, and cut air conditioning and power costs.
  • Greater Business Flexibility: enables IT management to react dynamically to changing business demands by allowing fast deployment of application and infrastructure services from common aggregations of integrated server, disk, and connectivity resources. This helps streamline operational procedures and enable policy-based management.
  • Enhanced Network Robustness: enables IT to defend against disruptions or attacks by protecting connections, applications, and data with the highest degrees of availability, pervasive security, and business continuance.
  • Improved Service Levels: permits IT management to optimize network service levels by implementing safe, fast connectivity to data center-hosted applications and information from anywhere and at any moment throughout the enterprise.
