Your data center is the backbone of your organization and the bridge between IT intention and end-user experience. That’s why data centers driven by legacy architecture may keep your core business running but will struggle to propel you forward. What many business leaders are now realizing is that the new possibilities promised by the latest tech—AI, IoT, Blockchain, you name it—will never come to pass without a data center that can extend out to the public cloud and back to the network edge. A data center optimized for growth and built for endurance. When paired with hybrid cloud solutions, a modernized data center can operate more efficiently with automation, analytics, and policy-based security at work. As digital transformation continues to push the demands of the data center, now is the perfect time to clean out the closet and dust off your competitive edge.
A legacy data center consists of all on-premises hardware and applications. An all-on-premises approach is outdated, so we recommend a hybrid configuration that enables you to leverage a mix of on-premises, public, and cloud architectures. Key to data storage and management for any size company and continual investments in the health of your data center will pay dividends. We offer hybrid architecture solutions that are more reliable, more secure, and less costly than legacy configurations. Partner with a team of technologists that will design a solution to find the right multi-cloud architecture for your business.
Data center networking facilitates the sharing of data across multiple users and devices. A typical network consists of servers that store centralized data, clients that access the data independently, routers and switches that connect devices together, and gateways to manage communications between the data center and the public.
When all of an organization’s data is centralized in a physical or cloud-based data center, protecting that data is of the utmost importance. Data protection is an essential service that R2 takes very seriously, by employing both physical and software-based security solutions, including firewalls, anti-malware tools, secure network zones, and more.
With virtualization technologies, software applications can consolidate many physical functions of the data center. Server virtualization improves IT efficiency, reduces downtime, and simplifies the backup process, as well as enabling the migration of data and processes to the cloud.
Converged infrastructure is a packaged approach to data center management and data storage that makes the entire process easier. A converged solution includes server, networking, storage and tools in a single piece of hardware. Built-in management and virtualization software are included.
You need a partner that is looking at the trends in your industry, matching them to the challenges you’re facing, and building a tailored solution for your business.

Executing the design, connecting the environment, keeping it running—that’s where we come in.
R2 utilizes a six-step services approach inspired by the U.S. military’s special operations forces: “Find, Fix, Finish, Exploit, Analyze, and Disseminate” (F3EAD) methodology.
