DATA CENTER SOLUTIONS
IT organizations increasingly and consistently have to deal with effectively scaling their networks beyond their traditional capabilities. Application/WAN acceleration comes into the picture to provide high performance remote data access, minimize bandwidth consumption, and alleviate latency increases.
Large collections of data can sometimes scale at a faster pace than traditional data processing can handle. Big data intends to work on parallel software running on tens of hundreds of compute nodes to process large amounts of data. Big data intends to uncover valuable and normally hidden information from data sets that would otherwise be concealed.
Cloud management tools are designed to optimize cloud resource allocation. With a Cloud Management platform you can get granular control of your IT systems, database and application inventory, usage statistics, access policy, and more; fundamentally lowering costs and gaining visibility and control of cloud deployments.
Hosted desktop virtualization is common as datacenters begin to scale up and out more effortlessly. Desktop virtualization puts security front and center as it has since its inception. Along with security, VDI within a datacenter inherently provides all the benefits of the security of the datacenter. The mobility of VDI allows users to instantly work from any location, use their device of choice, and use their software of choice. Rapid deployment, maintenance, and monitoring are also main drivers of VDI.
Infrastructure virtualization is the basis for the transformation of the data center into a service-oriented infrastructure and a key enabler for automation and lights-out operations. By virtualizing data center infrastructure and decoupling applications and data from the physical resources they run on, IT can deliver and maintain data center services more efficiently, resiliently, and dynamically.
BACKUP & RECOVERY
Backup is the routine copying of data to ensure its protection in the event of data loss through accidental deletion, equipment failure, or some other mishap. As more and more data is created and stored for longer periods of time, backup costs and the “backup window” (the time allocated to complete a backup operation) can increase to unmanageable levels. The goal of a Backup and Restore solution is to enable you to strengthen your data protection, streamline backup and recovery, and meet a wide range of service levels, even for the largest data volumes.
Business continuity includes strategy, planning and tactics to ensure that an organization’s mission critical business functions will either continue to operate despite serious incidents / disasters that might otherwise have interrupted them, or will be recovered to an operational state within a reasonably short period. Key elements include: resiliency, recovery and contingency.
As enterprise computing systems increase in scale, they also increase in complexity. And as complexity increases, so does the expense of deployment and ongoing management. A business can address these growing challenges by streamlining data center compute resources, scaling service delivery, and radically reducing the number of devices that require setup, management, power/cooling, and cabling.
In an almost natural evolution of data center systems, hyperconverged solutions have grown to provide compute and storage into a single box. Its scale-out capabilities show benefits such as lower costs, predictable scalability, centralized management, and a smaller footprint.
STORAGE (SAN / NAS)
There has been explosive growth of multiple SAN technologies in recent years, and for good reason. Hybrid and All Flash SANs are finding themselves at the forefront of the growth. These SAN’s hardware and software are built from the ground up to overcome traditional SAN technology shortfalls. Hybrid and All Flash SANs are built with flexible scaling of performance and capacity, ease of use, smooth scalability, and incorporated data protections in mind.
