Modern Data Center Solutions for the Modern Enterprise
Keeping up with the demands of your enterprise without the confines of typical data center logistics requires skilled, experienced partners who ask the right questions and consider all variables. We offer the following areas of focus, from optimization to disaster recovery, and more:
Modern data centers are no longer defined by four walls, some raised floor and a lot of power. Today, an enterprise’s datacenter infrastructure is likely to comprise a combination of on-premise resources, public and private cloud systems, software defined networking and storage as well as Software-as-a-Service solutions. This hybrid configuration can prove complex to architect and operate. NextNet Partners’ Consultants excel at helping clients maximize and optimize their datacenter and cloud deployments and investments.
Converged and HyperConverged Infrastructure
Converged and HyperConverged Infrastructures reduce operational overhead by simplifying or consolidating the traditional discrete datacenter building blocks: network, compute and storage. HyperConverged Infrastructure solutions employ a hypervisor to virtualize compute resources, software defined networking (SDN) and software defined storage (SDS) with management software to enable organizations to reduce the datacenter footprint and improve operational efficiency.
Public, Private and Hybrid Cloud
Server virtualization has been commonplace in datacenters for quite some time. However, what began as simple virtualization of server hardware, has evolved in to a resource consumption model for the datacenter commonly referred to as “cloud” computing. Whether public, private or hybrid, the key benefits of cloud computing include scalability, simplified or automated provisioning, virtualized resources and ability to expand dynamically. Selecting the “right” deployment model, or combination of models, can require quite a bit of effort. NextNet Partners’ Consultants can help your organization identify the strategy that helps your business achieve its business outcomes. Learn more >(LINK)
Datacenter awareness and visibility
Unless your organization is very new, there is a good chance that your datacenter has grown over a period of many years as a result the deployment of point solutions to support the deployment of specific workloads. This can lead to a heterogenous collection of various systems with different operational requirements, processes and skills. “Information blind spots” can result, adding risk and complexity. To adequately maintain the existing datacenter, and to support consolidation and optimization efforts, one must first identify and understand the information assets residing and operating within the datacenter.
Busines Continuity & Disaster Recovery (BCDR)
The case for business continuity and disaster recovery is really a business one, not just an IT one. With increasingly complex threats evolving, it’s not a matter of if, but rather when the next breach or threat comes knocking. By partnering with our BCDR experts, you’ll gain business resilience in the form of a comprehensive plan and strategy that is not only deployed but managed by our team. Learn more >(LINK)
