Accelerating Business. Streamlining IT Services.
Technology and business have evolved considerably in the last few years. Turning ideas into products, connecting to the internet of things, adapting to new business models and exploiting big data all need to happen at a very fast pace — and all require access to streamlined IT services.
Integrated and Hybrid IT environments have created a new set of opportunities for accelerating business and IT operations.
System refreshes and the blending of in-house, hybrid and cloud resources are infrastructure projects that can tap into new technology and business models to deliver significant benefits.
New technologies have the potential to transform data infrastructures and provide new computing platforms that continue to deliver high performance but offer improved resilience, flexibility, scalability, security and agility — and are easier-to-manage and cost–effective.
Choosing the right technical infrastructure to meet your organization’s needs now and in the future can help maintain the productivity, competitive edge, and profitability of your company.
Converged and Hyper Converged Systems
Converged: Simplified Deployment and Management
Converged systems combine compute, storage, networking, and software into one pre–tested, pre–validated integrated system sold as one unit. These systems eliminate infrastructure silos and simplify deployment and management for virtualization, big data, cloud, hybrid cloud, and workplace productivity. Converged systems have an attractive lower cost of ownership and greater flexibility to meet business demands.
Hyper Converged: Software Defined Agility
Hyper converged systems deliver software–defined agility by adding software layers that abstracts the hardware into a single shared resource pool with a scalable building–block approach. Physical resources, system and data management functions are all handled with a centralized interface, making it easier to scale resources in and out.
Reduced Complexity and Gaining Single-Vendor Benefit
As the complexity of enterprise IT infrastructure increases, the demands of managing the data center grow. Converged and hyper converged systems provide a simplified approach to fast deployment and easier management and optimization of on–premise, cloud and hybrid cloud environments – supported by single–vendor design, delivery, and support.
If your organization is considering a significant hardware refresh, converged or hyper converged systems may be a cost–saving option for simplifying your IT environment without compromising high performance or quality.
Technology Advances in Server Infrastructure
Nothing lasts forever, and aging servers can cause business-disrupting downtime. Replacing your aging server infrastructure can be an opportunity to take advantage of technology advances to improve performance, automation, management, security and reliability.
Modern servers mean modern features for things like improved workload tracking and optimization, asset management, and performance monitoring and analysis. New technologies can also deliver capabilities like higher density virtual machines and can usually be counted on to lower your energy costs and space requirements.
Supporting Your Business Goals
Whether you are facing a server refresh or you simply add new infrastructure, our engineers and consultants can help you plan, source, implement and configure new servers for virtualization, converged IT, hybrid cloud and big data.
Low Latency and High Performance
Costs have come down making hybrid and all-flash enterprise storage solutions the preferred choice for storing, processing and moving the massive volumes of business data generated in today’s cloud, mobile and IoT environment.
All-flash storage arrays utilize solid-state drives (SSDs) to deliver high-performance and low-latency workloads using data compression and deduplication technologies. Hybrid Storage combines those same solid-state drives (SSDs) with SAS or NL-SAS drives to offer a more cost-effective storage solution that balances cost with superior performance and high storage density.
Both options lower the complexity of providing scale-out performance at ultralow latency for data-intensive loads and big data analytics.
Whether you are building a new storage array or refreshing your existing storage infrastructure we will work with you to plan, source, install and configure a storage solution to meet you budgetary and business requirements.
Flexibility and Budget Meet High Performance
Storage has become more complex and increasingly difficult to manage, putting pressure on traditional storage models and data center operations and budgets. New data models, data-intensive workloads and cloud storage models are just a few of the changes fueling the current expansion of new storage technologies and products.
New storage architectures, including software-defined storage, converged and hyper converged systems, flash and hybrid arrays combine high-performance and availability with cost-saving efficiencies and ease-of-use. They incorporate both new and existing technology to increase resource efficiency and enable faster and more agile deployment scalability, and management.
What is the right storage strategy for your goals?
S-3 engineers and consultants bring years of experience to the table. We can help your organization understand your options and decide which technology will best meet your storage and business strategy for on-premise, private, public, and hybrid cloud.
Managing mixed infrastructure environments with centralized control and complete visibility.
IT Ops and Infrastructure teams responsible for server management often struggle with processes that are slow, complex and expensive. Managing today’s mixed infrastructure environments that combine on-premises, hybrid, and cloud architectures have only added to their burden.
These challenges combined with new compute, network and storage technologies have fueled the development of a whole set of new server management platforms with centralized control, complete visibility, increased automation, and simplified operations to manage any size server deployment.
These tools are making a dramatic difference, giving IT Ops the ability to accelerate time-to-service and to respond rapidly and easily to changing business requirements.
