Today data centre networks are complex with many complementary and codependent technologies needed to run smoothly, including Ethernet Switching, Storage Networking, Application Delivery, Core IP Services (DNS, DHCP, IP Address Management).
Innovation in these areas allows your data centre network to:
- Be more intelligent and application aware
- Provide improved support for virtualization
- Reduce costs by consolidating networking and cabling infrastructures
- Provide a stable and robust platform for an always-on business environment

Our process comprises the following steps:
Identify review the impact of technology on your operations
Discover conduct a discovery and/or a technology assessment
Assess analyze outputs of the assessment and create a roadmap of prioritized initiatives
Recommend review and agree on recommendations and the suggested roadmap
Execute deliver on the recommendations
Improve repeat these steps regularly due to the cyclical nature of aging technology and operational changes
