Cisco Datacenter Management ConsultantsData centers are the focal point of leveraging IT assets to optimize the strategic value of an IT network. For small businesses, data centers have often evolved in a haphazard manner, resulting in a situation where processors and storage devices are underutilized, available communications bandwidth is overlooked, collaboration and knowledge sharing is limited, maintenance demands are excessive, expansion or repurposing is expensive, security is poor, nominally minor changes turn into giant challenges, and complete recovery from catastrophic failure is virtually undoable.

Cisco's most recent network devices and technologies enable a new model of data center architecture that permits continual improvements in processor, storage, connectivity infrastructure, and application technologies in a manageable and economical way. Progent's Cisco-certified professionals can help you to select and implement Cisco's connectivity solutions to build a robust basis for your data center and to streamline your data center processes in vital areas including:

  • Processor and storage efficiency
  • Comprehensive security enforcement
  • Server proliferation
  • Regulatory issues
  • Disaster recovery

The important benefits that can accrue as a result of using Progent's network consultants to enhance your data center include:

  • Lower TCO: allows IT to substantially reduce acquisition costs via integration and higher utilization of formerly isolated equipment, lower maintenance costs by simplifying and automating administrative jobs, and cut HVAC and power costs.
  • Greater Business Agility: enables IT management to respond dynamically to changing competitive demands by allowing rapid deployment of application and network services from common pools of consolidated processor, disk, and network resources. This can improve operational procedures and support policy-driven management.
  • Better Business Robustness: enables IT to respond to breakdowns or intrusions by protecting connections, applications, and information with the highest levels of availability, comprehensive security, and business continuance.
  • Optimized Service Levels: allows IT to optimize business service levels by providing secure, fast access to data center-hosted applications and data from anywhere and at any moment across the enterprise.
