How prepared is your data center, network and computing infrastructure to meet your organization future growth? Do your Service Level Agreements work for you or against you? What types of disasters have you planned for? What processes do you have in place to maintain a responsive data center? These are all tough questions that need to be asked and properly answered.
Conducting periodic reviews of your Data Center infrastructure and management processes is a business-critical cycle to ensure your infrastructure can handle whatever business operations throws at it.
The Virtual Density team specializes in helping organizations of all types to meet their responsibilities to their clients, their shareholders and their employees. Even if an organization has an existing plan, it must perform its due-diligence by constantly reviewing and evaluating its effectiveness… before disaster strikes. An outside team of professionals can add great value and assurance in this area.
Virtual Density’s Data Center Assessment is a comprehensive review of the critical areas of your data center operations, networks, environmental and infrastructure platforms, and their ability to sustain business scenarios.
This approach is accomplished in 4 standard stages:
- Stage 1 – Discovery & Information Gathering
- Stage 2 – Infrastructure & Processes Analysis
- Stage 3 – Report Compilation – Findings & Recommendations
- Stage 4 – Presentation of Deliverables
Our approach will typically require approximately 4-6 weeks, depending on the size and complexity of your organization. As part of the process, the Virtual Density assessment team will compile an inventory of the Critical Systems, Secondary Systems, and Peripheral Systems, all of which can mean significant business loss in the event of a disaster.
Our Assessment concentrates on areas that can directly and indirectly affect your business operations. These areas include:
- Personnel and Support Issues
- Server and Storage Infrastructure
- Network Infrastructure
- Power Infrastructure
- Environmental Components
- Physical & Network Security
Our Value Delivered
At the end of our assessment, we provide a written report containing the following:
- An Inventory of Data Center Components
- Infrastructure Analysis
- Physical, Electrical & Environmental Analysis
- Current State of Risks
- Recommendations and Action Plan
The results can be made part of a continuous service improvement effort, and can be used to justify planning and budgeting for future initiatives.
A Data Center Assessment from Virtual Density provides you with the satisfaction and assurance that you have completed your due diligence in protecting your technical exposure and empowering your business for success.
