Capacity assessment in the data center is about making sure that you have the computing power, physical space and power to handle your businesses' present and future needs. 

The decision-making challenges associated with capacity planning are unique to each data center. But, at the end of the day it comes down to aligning the capacity of the data center – in CPU cycles and services – with how much capacity the organization needs from that data center.

True capacity planning means being able to look into the future and estimate future IT needs – what the data center must provide in CPU cycles, storage, space, and power – based on forecasts about what the organization will need two months, one year, even three years from now.

ATC has been desigining and deploying data center for fortune 100 companies for over a decade. Please call us for your data center needs.

Business Value Analysis

This service will provides a combination of services, that will help an organization determine a future state, virtualized compute environment and its associated impact on their IT budget, whilst base lining/inventory their existing environment.

Datacenter Virtualization

Before considering any type of data center virtualization, it’s important to define what technology or category of service you’re trying to virtualize.

Operating System Virtualization

The most prevalent form of virtualization today, virtual operating systems (or virtual machines) are quickly becoming a core component of the IT infrastructure. Generally, this is the form of virtualization end-users are most familiar with. Virtual machines are typically full implementations of standard operating systems, such as Windows Vista or RedHat Enterprise Linux, running simultaneously on the same physical hardware. Virtual Machine Managers (VMMs) manage each virtual machine individually; each OS instance is unaware that 1) it’s virtual and 2) that other virtual operating systems are (or may be) running at the same time.

ATC is at the forefront sea change in compute arena. We have been delivering stateless computing environment based on Cisco’s UCS server platform, VMware and SAN solutions (Netapp and EMC). We have the expertise to design and implement virtual DC solutions complete with high availability and DR capabilities.

Network Virtualization

By using network virtualization solutions, network resources can be deployed and managed as logical services, rather than physical resources. As a result, companies can:

  • Enhance enterprise agility.
  • Improve network efficiency.
  • Reduce capital and operational costs.
  • Maintain high standards of security, scalability, manageability, and availability throughout the campus design.

Network virtualization solutions can consolidate multiple physical networks into one virtual network They can also logically segment a single physical network into multiple logical network. Partitions can be added to rapidly scale the network for business needs.

ATC has been deploying Cisco’s NEXUS platform (Nexus 7k, 5k, 2k) since its introdcutrion. We have network architects with deep understanding of network architecture and customer requirements. Network virtualization is the way forward and we can help you achieve it.
