Help your data center help your business
Have you ever felt like you were constantly in motion but rarely getting ahead? Your data center can probably relate. It’s the backbone of your organization and the bridge between IT intention and end-user reality. 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. R2 Unified Technologies can provide just that for organizations of all sizes. 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.
Let go of a legacy data center
Welcome to the next decade. 1990 is calling and they want their equipment back. A legacy data center consists of all on-premises hardware and applications. All on-prem is old school, you deserve better. We recommend a hybrid configuration that enables you to leverage a mix of on-premises, public, and cloud architectures.
They say there’s no silver bullet in business, but we’d say that a state-of-the-art data center comes pretty darn close. Key to data storage and management for any size company; continual investments in the health of your data center will pay dividends. In other words, your future self will thank you.
R2 Unified Technologies 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 tailor solution to find the right multi-cloud architecture for your business.
Data Center Networking
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 Internet.
Servers and Virtualization
With virtualization technologies, software applications can consolidate many physical functions of the data center. For example, server virtualization masks the identity of physical servers from client users. There may be a single server in the cloud, but each client “sees” its own individual server environment, creating multiple operating systems on that single server. 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.
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.
Storage and Converged Infrastructure
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.
A better data center, A multi-cloud approach
You need access to the cloud with protection to the network edge. On-prem solutions where fundamental to business safeguards and reliability. Don’t settle for what used to work. Strive for better. Get better ideas, better configurations, and better support. 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.
