Experiencing Performance Issues
Every few years, data center hardware needs to be replaced and upgraded. When you reach that point in your equipment lifecycle, an Infrastructure Optimization Roadmap can ensure your data center pursues the technologies best equipped to tackle the challenges of the present and the future. Furthermore, the Roadmap provides expert insight on a variety of strategies used by hundreds of customers to reduce your data center footprint without compromising performance.
Under New Management
When a new IT Director or CIO enters an organization, it can be like walking into a dialogue mid-conversation. The new management must simultaneously maintain and support this environment while also trying to learn and understand its construction. The Infrastructure Optimization Roadmap is a perfect opportunity to allow the Mindsight consultants to streamline this process. Our consultants can analyze and document the details of your IT environment and present our findings in a comprehensive report.
Completing the Virtualization of the Data Center
Many environments have virtualized large portions of their data center, but going from 80% to 100% virtualized can still be a challenge. The Infrastructure Optimization Roadmap can help your environment complete this last leg of its virtualization journey and remove the last bare-metal servers left standing.
Reviewing and Analyzing the Existing Deployment and Utilization
A second pair of eyes can be valuable after new data center hardware is deployed. Our engineers can check and double check the equipment to ensure that your new data center is poised for success and ready to help the business achieve its goals.
