Professional ServicesConsultant support from technical architecture, transformation events and service delivery.
In today’s increasingly global and mobile business environment, users expect to connect to applications from wherever they are and expect the same high performance levels from inside and outside the corporate network. At the same time, many organisations are starting to test the waters of cloud computing and considering a move towards private cloud infrastructures. Virtualisation technology is being broadly adopted across all industry segments, given its promise of efficiency gains and cost savings. However, its inherent flexibility − involving multiple virtual machines residing on a single server and being automatically provisioned, de-provisioned or migrated between servers, data centre racks or even different data centre facilities – presents significant challenges to networks.
The network is the enabling backbone upon which the success of consolidation and virtualisation projects and IT departments’ ability to support new application rollouts, traffic growth and increasing numbers of connecting devices depends.
When it comes to their enterprise and campus networks, companies need to plan ahead to provide a seamless end-user experience, while at the same time maintaining a robust core to provide a scalable and easy to operate architecture.
Systal’s Network Professional Services are intended to help you review your existing network and architecture for industry best practices, identify problem areas if any, and provide a clear and concise path for growing the network based on business and technology requirements.
