Cisco Datacenter Management ConsultantsData centers are the key to utilizing IT assets to maximize the strategic value of a computer network. For small businesses, data centers have typically grown in a piecemeal manner, resulting in a state where servers and disks are deployed inefficiently, available communications bandwidth is overlooked, teamwork and knowledge sharing is limited, support requirements are excessive, expansion or reconfiguring is expensive, protection is poor, seemingly simple modifications become major hassles, and full recovery from disastrous failure becomes almost undoable.

Cisco's most recent connectivity products and tools support a new generation of data center design that allows continual improvements in server, storage, connectivity infrastructure, and applications in a manageable and cost-effective way. Progent's Cisco-certified professionals can help you to identify and deploy Cisco's network technology to create a solid basis for your data center and to improve your data center processes in critical areas including:

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

The key advantages that can be realized as a result of using Progent's network consultants to enhance your data center include:

  • Lower ownership cost: allows IT management to substantially reduce capital expenses via consolidation and higher utilization of previously separate network resources, lower operational expenses by simplifying and automating management tasks, and reduce air conditioning and power bills.
  • More Business Agility: enables IT management to react quickly to evolving business conditions by facilitating rapid provisioning of application and network functions from common aggregations of consolidated processor, storage, and connectivity resources. This helps improve administrative processes and enable policy-driven control.
  • Enhanced Network Robustness: enables IT to react to disruptions or attacks by safeguarding infrastructure, applications, and information through advanced levels of availability, pervasive security, and business continuance.
  • Improved Service Levels: permits IT management to improve business service levels by providing safe, accelerated access to data center-resident applications and information from any location and at any time across the enterprise.
