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 An all-on-premises approach is outdated, so we recommend a hybrid configuration that enables you to leverage a mix of on-premises, public, and cloud architectures.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. Any IT solution provider can sell you new servers when the old ones go end-of-life. You want to excel and the ability to capitalize on what innovative technology and architectures have to offer. Executing the design, connecting the environment, keeping it running—that’s where we come in.

At Embraer, we say that it's about the journey... and the journey is bringing value to the customers through excellence. I found R2 when I was searching for a company to do a readiness assessment for our data centers in South Florida. We were looking for a partner that was agile and had the maturity that we needed to help us deliver on these projects."
It went above and beyond my expectations of what this particular project was going to deliver,” notes Dan. “When I was just looking for better connectivity and throughput, I ended up getting a guest Wi-Fi experience that I can now capture marketing information from in order to deliver more personalized services and interactive content to patients.”
The collaboration with R2 started in combination with the move to our new space [Cendyn SPACES], the new building that Cendyn purchased. We realized quickly that Cendyn didn’t have all the expertise required to facilitate that [co-workspace environment with leading-edge telecommunication technologies] reliably.”
When it came down to it, R2 had the skills, talent and the people in place to support all our [services and collaboration end points] needs.”

Very good group of guys that go out of the way to do things right."
“Your hand in the coordination of internet and wifi was amazing. Not only were you able to troubleshoot issues in a timely manner, you stayed ahead of the game by anticipating and being proactive with our needs.

R2 Unified Technologies has raised the level of service that we've long sought, but too often fell short in finding.”

We did a lot of research deciding on how to implement a VDI project and came down to two solutions with different partners. Both solutions would work for us, but we ultimately decided to go with R2 because of the knowledge of their team. We feel it was the right decision and are now working with R2 on multiple other projects."
R2 has been a valued extension of our team for over a decade. I’ve worked with many MSPs over the years – none match R2’s skill or commitment to their customers. Their promise to “do right by the customer” isn’t just a slogan, it’s something every R2 employee lives every day. Anybody can sell you a solution; finding a true partner that’s there for the long haul is something special – that’s exactly what R2 brings to the table."
R2’s response time is amazing. When current vendors are quoting 2-3 day response times, R2 is able to bring engineers online and assist us to have issues fixed in hours as opposed to days."
R2 helped me take my network and security to the next level. I call on them for consulting and implementation that is beyond the scope of my IT Team or as additional resources to help achieve my goals quickly. R2 is truly my trusted partner. We look at them as an augmentation of our own IT department."
We've enjoyed working with the R2 team on several projects. They have always been very professional, knowledgeable and a true pleasure to work with."
R2 has been Gehr’s network consultant for 12 years. They have built Gehr’s Cisco infrastructure including the Phone System. They also helped set up our VMware environment. It has been a stable and healthy relationship because they are knowledgeable and quick to respond. Hence, R2 will be Gehr’s go-to network vendor for years to come."

I met the R2 team at a Cisco-sponsored event several years ago. The staff was very friendly and receptive to my questions around networking, storage and security solutions.
Over the years, R2 has proven to be a solid MSP resource for the South Florida PBS organization. During the course of the relationship, we have worked on several significant projects including domain migration, facility relocation, storage and networking upgrade, server refresh and video application optimization.
The R2 team is professional, knowledgeable and very responsive to SFPBS' needs. They communicate constantly and effectively to ensure projects, tasks or services requests are handled with the most optimum results."
The R2 team is willing to understand our actual needs before suggesting we buy new technologies. I love the fact they are local and can provide a level of pre and post-sale support that other companies can't. For these reasons we don't consider R2 a vendor any longer, but a valuable business partner."
