Design A More Efficient Data Center
As more organizations distinguish themselves by the quality and efficiency that comes through leveraging technology, maintaining an advanced datacenter becomes a key ingredient for growth and success. Companies that invest in their intellectual capital—such as customer and supply data—or that depend on business transactions without interruption 24/7/365, need datacenters that can organize and deliver mission-critical information. That information also must be secure and available at all times. Fortunately, the advantages of advanced datacenter technology are more available today than ever.
A more efficient datacenter can lead to dramatically improved company performance by providing better services to customers and enabling employees to be more productive. Safari Micro has the experience necessary to guide you through a plan for datacenter improvements and upgrades, whether you are planning for a large-scale solution or a targeted improvement to your current system.
New server technology can lower management overhead by freeing up staff from maintenance tasks, allowing them to focus on projects that add to your competitive advantage. These technologies include multicore processors and space-saving blades, which can be very energy efficient. Any of these can improve your utilization, giving you a better return on your investment.
Virtualizing your servers can save significant amounts of money, through reduced energy consumption, less physical infrastructure, and increased productivity. A virtualized server can do the work of several stand-alone servers, even running several operating systems at once with no interference among them. Virtualizing can also streamline server administration while delivering greater reliability and security.
Developing separate networks for storage and end-users can optimize your datacenter resources. Storage networks have higher I/O demands, while end-user networks can streamline operations and customer service. End-user networks also can support converged technologies, such as VoIP and the ever-expanding array of wireless devices. Safari Micro can work with you to develop a solution that is fast, secure, and easy to manage.
With storage devices steadily increasing in capacity, coupled with a steadily decreasing cost per MB of data, and businesses’ growing dependency on IT, it is no surprise when the amount of data a company owns overwhelms the company’s ability to organize that data and leverage its value. Overgrown databases mean impaired performance of mission-critical ERP and CRM systems, and if you don’t manage your data storage demands, expenses can grow even faster. Let Safari Micro guide you to your optimal storage technology, and plan for business continuity.
