The latest technologies for Disaster Recovery cost less, do more, and are easier to manage. Progent's Microsoft and Cisco-certified consultants show you how to create and implement a business continuity plan that is both effective and affordable.
For businesses of any size, network downtime is costly whether it is due to unexpected breakdowns or scheduled maintenance. Enterprise networks have for a long time utilized processes and technologies that minimize the chances of network failure, expedite the recovery process in case of a catastrophe, and eliminate maintenance-related downtime.
For small businesses, however, disaster recovery planning, fault tolerant network architecture, and non-disruptive maintenance solutions have all seemed too expensive to implement and too complex to manage. This has changed.
Progentís Microsoft and Cisco certified network engineers have in-depth experience helping small businesses avoid network downtime by offering affordable consulting support for business continuity planning, high-availability system design, and on-line maintenance. Progentís disaster recovery team can help you develop, implement, and validate a sensible business continuity plan that aligns with your business needs and IT budget. Progentís specialists in fault tolerance can assist you to implement and maintain high-availability technologies such as redundant Internet connectivity, clustering, load balancing, virtualization, and multi-location data centers. Progentís system management engineers can help you minimize or eliminate network downtime associated with routine maintenance.
Disaster Recovery Planning
Progent's business continuity engineers can help you design a disaster recovery plan so you can restore network operations in case of an IT system catastrophe. Progent can assist you to develop a complete disaster recovery strategy that includes scheduled disaster recovery assessments and testing. Progent's Microsoft and Cisco-authorized engineers can also help you build an affordable, fault-tolerant system architecture that takes into account reliability issues covering a wide range of network technologies and procedures.
Microsoft Server 2008 Failover Clustering
The server cluster technology built into the high-end editions of MS Windows Server 2008 is radically redesigned to simplify the installation, configuration, and maintenance of clusters that provide greater levels of network availability, security, efficiency, and versatility. New or improved capabilities include cluster verification, revamped setup and deployment, unified cluster management, redesigned cluster architecture for maximum availability, better protection and quorum models, minimization of failure points, greater disk and memory capacity, and improvements for multi-site clusters.
Non-stop Data Centers
Progent's Data Center engineers can show you how to identify fault-tolerant data centers that meet the particular needs of your business. High availability co-location sites are especially appealing to small companies because of their low cost and convenience in comparison to taking a do-it-yourself approach. Trying to design an on-site data center with even a basic level of fault tolerance is too expensive for typical small organizations. Progent can show you how to get all the benefits of high-availability data centers by providing a complete range of engineering and support services.
