Thriving to Provide World-Class Data Center

Despite technological innovation and changes in Data Center Infrastructure, new challenges continue to arise. Often in Data Center Networking, Data Breaches cost millions for personal data breaches, lost intellectual property, and identity theft.

Although Virtualization and Server Consolidation lowers the amount of hardware in the Datacenter, they do not always reduce Power Consumption. Blade servers consume four to five times more energy than older data storage technologies, even though they are more efficient overall. Thus, Power and Cooling requirements are becoming more of an issue as Equipment requirements evolve. LIkewise, Poor planning for your Data Center Physical Infrastructure can have substantial and long-lasting implications, whether too little space, too much space, or excessive heat due to hardware proximity.

Operating the Data Center to its full capacity is also necessary to maintain optimal performance.
