Cisco Datacenter Solutions ConsultantsData centers are the key to leveraging IT assets to maximize the strategic value of an IT network. For small businesses, data centers have often grown in a piecemeal fashion, creating a state where servers and storage devices are deployed inefficiently, usable communications bandwidth is overlooked, collaboration and information sharing is limited, maintenance requirements are high, scaling or repurposing is expensive, protection is patchy, nominally simple modifications become major challenges, and complete recovery from catastrophic breakdowns becomes almost undoable.

Cisco's most recent networking appliances and tools enable a new model of data center design that allows continual improvements in processor, storage, network topology, and applications in a manageable and economical way. Progent's engineers can assist you to identify and deploy Cisco's network solutions to build a robust basis for your data center and to streamline your data center operations in critical areas such as:

  • Processor and disk efficiency
  • Comprehensive security enforcement
  • Server consolidation
  • Regulatory requirements
  • Disaster recovery

The key advantages that can be realized from using Progent's Cisco-certified experts to optimize your data center include:

  • Lower total cost of ownership: enables IT to substantially lower acquisition costs via integration and higher utilization of previously isolated equipment, slash operational expenses through streamlining and automating administrative jobs, and cut cooling and power costs.
  • More Business Flexibility: permits IT management to react quickly to changing competitive demands by allowing fast deployment of application and network services from common pools of consolidated processor, disk, and connectivity resources. This helps improve operational procedures and enable policy-based control.
  • Better Network Resilience: allows IT management to react to breakdowns or attacks by safeguarding connections, programs, and data through advanced degrees of availability, comprehensive protection, and business continuance.
  • Improved Service Levels: permits IT management to improve business service levels by providing secure, fast access to data center-resident applications and information from anywhere and at any time throughout the organization.
