Multiplatform icon

Multiplatform approach

Ensure consistent user access and eliminate downtime with a hybrid environment across many technologies.


Success through measurement

Application dependency mapping ensures effective IT alignment. The process reveals the upstream and downstream relationships among your applications, storage, network, servers and databases. Understanding the current state and readiness of your system minimizes migration complications.

Assure resiliency in your new environment by using insights from your current environment, including the:

  • Number of applications you’re running
  • Amount of servers & storage
  • Catalog of networking components & their roles
  • Internal & external technology communication

Merge workloads and suitable technology.

Adopting a single platform is no longer an option. A hybrid model flexibly matches technology characteristics with workload requirements. Any combination of platforms works. We’ll help you adopt the right approach to create a resourceful environment.

Flash data center

Data is always on demand in flash storage environments. Place your large, critical workloads here.

Hyperconverged

Availability and scale are at the center of hyperconverged and software-defined environments.

Public cloud

The public cloud provides agility and flexibility when it’s needed while enabling access from anywhere.
