To meet changing business demands and the dynamic needs of your clients, you need infrastructure that is scalable and flexible. As consultants, we help you analyze your current environment, IT processes, and operations to help you improve resiliency and stay competitive.
We take a proactive approach, planning for a future state, rather than going with the status quo. As the drive toward hybrid environments and hyper-converged infrastructure intensifies, we can help you get there.
Energy efficiency is no longer a nice-to-have: it has become table stakes for data center operators, who must respond to consumer expectations. Whether you decide to become certified and operating under the ASHRAE energy standards for data centers or formalize Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) goals, the US Department of Energy’s Data Center Pro tools, or CFD analysis, energy efficiency in the data center helps operators keep their power and cooling costs low, meet Service Level Agreement requirements and ultimately improve margins.
LEED certification can help data center operators meet Corporate Social Responsibility requirements and reduce their impact on the environment opening opportunity for enhanced status and resource efficiency and healthy, safe work environments.
Appropriate administration of your data center facilities is key to protecting your investment. Beyond ensuring uptime, effective data center operations develops process and strives to continuously improve to meet or exceed the owner or operator’s goals. Whether it is the day-to-day maintenance of critical infrastructure, asset control, or upkeep of the building or property, we can help you take a strategic approach to data center operations and facilities management.
We can assist you with structuring a team that is insourced, outsourced, or takes a hybrid approach. We can help you evaluate key performance metrics, evaluate Methods of Procedure, develop playbooks, or evaluate operational compliance with Service Level Agreements. Either way, you get the staff and expertise you need to keep your critical infrastructure up and running.
As operators know all too well, data centers face an array of security threats, whether it is from the physical landscape, from rogue employees, or from outside actors. Data center managers and their security teams are challenged to mitigate this risk every single day.
Let us help your team create an effective risk management plan, and back it up with quality assurance testing. We can help categorize different types of risk and create both backup and actionable scenarios for each. By adhering to industry best practices while also evaluating your specific concerns, we can help position you to be as resilient as possible, provide TIA or Tier evaluations, and design solutions to mitigate single points of failure in systems or processes. Dashboards, Client Portals, and integration of BMS, EPMS, and DCIM platforms are part of the road map to risk mitigation and quality assurance.
