Cisco Datacenter Management Consulting FirmData centers are the key to leveraging information technology assets to optimize the strategic value of an IT network. For small companies, data centers have typically grown in a piecemeal fashion, creating a situation where servers and disks are deployed inefficiently, usable communications capacity is wasted, collaboration and knowledge sharing is minimal, maintenance requirements are high, scaling or reconfiguring is costly, security is poor, seemingly simple modifications turn into giant challenges, and complete recovery from disastrous failure becomes almost impossible.

Cisco's most recent network products and tools enable a new model of data center design that permits continual enhancements in server, storage, network topology, and application technologies in a manageable and economical way. Progent's engineers can help you to select and implement Cisco's network technology to create a solid basis for your data center and to improve your operations in critical areas such as:

  • Processor and storage efficiency
  • End-to-end security enforcement
  • Server proliferation
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Disaster recovery

The important advantages that can be realized as a result of engaging Progent's Cisco-certified experts to optimize your data center include:

  • Lower total cost of ownership: allows IT management to significantly reduce acquisition expenses through integration and more efficient use of formerly separate network resources, lower operational costs through streamlining and automating management tasks, and reduce cooling and energy bills.
  • More Business Flexibility: permits IT to react dynamically to changing competitive demands by facilitating rapid provisioning of application and network services from shared aggregations of consolidated processor, disk, and network resources. This can improve operational processes and enable policy-driven control.
  • Better Business Robustness: enables IT management to react to disruptions or attacks by protecting connections, applications, and information with advanced levels of availability, comprehensive protection, and business continuance.
  • Optimized Service Levels: enables IT to improve network service levels by implementing safe, accelerated access to data center-resident applications and data from any place and at any time throughout the organization.
