Cisco Datacenter Solutions Consulting FirmData centers are the focal point of utilizing IT resources to maximize the strategic value of an IT network. For small companies, data centers have often evolved in a piecemeal fashion, resulting in a situation where servers and storage devices are underutilized, available communications bandwidth is overlooked, teamwork and knowledge sharing is limited, support requirements are high, expansion or reconfiguring is costly, protection is poor, nominally minor changes turn into major hassles, and full recovery from catastrophic failure is virtually undoable.

Cisco's latest connectivity products and tools support a new generation of data center design that permits continual enhancements in server, storage, network topology, and application technologies in a manageable and cost-effective way. Progent's engineers can help you to identify and deploy Cisco's connectivity products to build a robust basis for your data center and to streamline your data center operations in vital areas including:

  • Processor and disk utilization
  • Comprehensive security enforcement
  • Processor proliferation
  • Regulatory requirements
  • Disaster recovery

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

  • Lower TCO: enables IT management to substantially reduce acquisition expenses via consolidation and more efficient utilization of previously separate network resources, slash maintenance costs through streamlining and automating administrative tasks, and reduce HVAC and energy costs.
  • More Business Flexibility: enables IT to respond quickly to evolving business demands by facilitating rapid provisioning of application and network services from common pools of integrated server, disk, and connectivity technologies. This helps streamline administrative processes and support policy-driven control.
  • Better Network Resilience: enables IT management to react to breakdowns or attacks by guarding connections, applications, and information through the highest degrees of fault tolerance, pervasive protection, and disaster recovery.
  • Optimized Service Levels: enables IT management to optimize network service levels by providing secure, accelerated connectivity to data center-hosted applications and data from anywhere and at any moment across the enterprise.
