Cisco Datacenter Solutions Consulting FirmData centers are the focal point of utilizing IT assets to optimize the business value of an IT network. For small companies, data centers have typically grown in a piecemeal fashion, creating a state where servers and storage devices are deployed inefficiently, usable communications capacity is overlooked, teamwork and knowledge sharing is limited, maintenance requirements are high, scaling or repurposing is costly, security is poor, nominally simple modifications become major hassles, and full recovery from disastrous failure is almost undoable.

Cisco's most recent connectivity products and technologies enable a new model of data center architecture that permits ongoing enhancements in processor, storage, connectivity infrastructure, and applications in a maintainable and cost-effective way. Progent's consultants can help you to identify and implement Cisco's connectivity products to build a robust basis for your data center and to improve your operations in critical areas such as:

  • Server and storage utilization
  • Comprehensive security policy enforcement
  • Processor consolidation
  • Regulatory issues
  • Business continuance

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

  • Reduced ownership cost: allows IT management to significantly reduce acquisition expenses through integration and more efficient utilization of formerly isolated network resources, slash maintenance costs by simplifying and automating administrative jobs, and reduce HVAC and power bills.
  • Greater Business Flexibility: permits IT to react quickly to changing competitive demands by facilitating fast provisioning of application and network functions from shared pools of integrated server, disk, and connectivity resources. This helps improve operational procedures and enable policy-driven management.
  • Better Business Robustness: enables IT to respond to breakdowns or intrusions by guarding infrastructure, programs, and information with the highest levels of availability, pervasive protection, and disaster recovery.
  • Optimized Service Levels: enables IT to optimize network service levels by providing safe, fast access to data center-hosted applications and information from anywhere and at any time throughout the organization.
