Cisco Datacenter Management Consulting FirmData centers are the key to leveraging IT resources to maximize the business value of a computer network. For small companies, data centers have typically evolved in a haphazard manner, creating a situation where servers and storage devices are deployed inefficiently, usable communications bandwidth is wasted, collaboration and information sharing is limited, support requirements are excessive, scaling or repurposing is expensive, protection is poor, seemingly simple changes turn into giant challenges, and full recovery from catastrophic breakdowns is almost undoable.

Cisco's latest networking products and tools support a new generation of data center design that allows ongoing improvements in processor, storage, network infrastructure, and applications in a maintainable and economical way. Progent's Cisco-certified professionals can help you to identify and deploy Cisco's network technology to create a robust basis for your data center and to improve your data center processes in vital areas including:

  • Processor and disk efficiency
  • Comprehensive security enforcement
  • Server consolidation
  • Regulatory issues
  • Business continuance

The key benefits that can accrue from engaging Progent's network consultants to optimize your data center include:

  • Lower ownership cost: permits IT to substantially cut capital expenses through consolidation and more efficient utilization of previously separate equipment, lower operational costs by simplifying and automating administrative tasks, and reduce HVAC and energy costs.
  • More Business Agility: permits IT to react quickly to evolving business demands by allowing rapid provisioning of application and infrastructure services from shared pools of integrated server, disk, and connectivity technologies. This helps improve operational procedures and enable policy-driven management.
  • Enhanced Network Resilience: allows IT to react to breakdowns or intrusions by safeguarding connections, applications, and data through the highest levels of fault tolerance, pervasive protection, and business continuance.
  • Optimized Service Levels: permits IT management to optimize network service levels by implementing safe, fast connectivity to data center-resident applications and data from any location and at any time throughout the organization.
