Cisco Datacenter Management ConsultantsData centers are the key to leveraging IT assets to maximize the competitive value of a computer network. For small businesses, data centers have often evolved in a piecemeal fashion, resulting in a situation where processors and disks are underutilized, available communications bandwidth is overlooked, collaboration and information sharing is minimal, maintenance demands are high, scaling or repurposing is costly, protection is patchy, nominally minor changes turn into giant hassles, and complete recovery from disastrous breakdowns becomes almost undoable.

Cisco's most recent network appliances and tools support a new model of data center architecture that allows continual improvements in server, storage, connectivity infrastructure, and application technologies in a maintainable and cost-effective way. Progent's consultants can assist you to select and implement Cisco's connectivity solutions to build a solid foundation for your data center and to improve your data center operations in vital areas such as:

  • Processor and disk utilization
  • End-to-end security policy enforcement
  • Server proliferation
  • Regulatory requirements
  • Disaster recovery

The business advantages that can be realized from engaging Progent's Cisco-certified experts to streamline your data center include:

  • Lower costs: permits IT to significantly reduce acquisition expenses through integration and higher utilization of formerly separate equipment, lower operational expenses through streamlining and automating management tasks, and cut air conditioning and power costs.
  • Greater Business Agility: enables IT to react dynamically to changing business demands by facilitating fast deployment of application and infrastructure services from common aggregations of consolidated processor, storage, and network technologies. This can streamline operational processes and enable policy-driven management.
  • Better Network Resilience: enables IT to respond to disruptions or intrusions by safeguarding connections, programs, and information with the highest levels of fault tolerance, pervasive protection, and business continuance.
  • Improved Service Levels: allows IT management to improve network service levels by providing safe, accelerated access to data center-hosted applications and information from any place and at any moment throughout the organization.
