Simplifying Data Center Networks Unlocks Benefits
Convergence brings improved scalability and resiliency
The propagation of purpose-built networks within the data center has created a series of silos, from LANs and SANs to different protocols like Ethernet and Fibre Channel. While they may have been effective at solving their purpose, these networks’ utilization, scalability, and resiliency can hold back IT performance. In addition, the complexity of managing these networks one at a time only adds to the burden of IT staff.
Through leading network technology from Cisco, Converged Technology Group simplifies, streamlines, and optimizes data center networking to eliminate unnecessary equipment and reduce operational expenses while delivering higher levels of performance across traditional, virtualized, and cloud infrastructures.
To begin converging your data center networks, our experienced team performs thorough assessments of your current configuration and then creates a new map of your data center built on the latest high-capacity Cisco Nexus and Catalyst switches. Converged Technology Group also utilizes new architectures such as Cisco FabricPath that creates a flatter data center switching design for improved simplicity, scalability, and flexibility while intelligently routing data and meeting workload demands.
Ways we enhance your data center’s infrastructure for greater efficiency:
- Baseline Measurements: Where is your power going? Converged will measure current power consumption by IT systems, UPS, Chillers, Lighting.
- Maximize Servers and Storage: Pooled networks are more efficient. Server and Storage virtualization is an effective strategy for realizing greater space, power, and cooling savings.
- Data Management: We’ll conduct a business data audit to spotlight areas ripe for remediation to reduce unnecessary data.
- Conduct Powerload Estimates: We lab test prior to data center deployment to eliminate systems overcooling for peak performance at the lowest cost.
Continuous Monitoring: A Converged Tech-monitored environment operates at peak efficiency and is cost-efficient as well.
