Data Center Services
Next-generation data center solutions
Data centers are facing a number of disruptive trends that need to be understood in order to provide the infrastructure and services required for success. For example, the Internet of Things is having a huge impact on data centers, and as with other disruptive forces—cloud, mobility or virtualization—IT must prepare for the next surge in data and network loads. Similarly, other major trends, such as hyperconvergence, software-driven infrastructures and automation, are impacting data centers.

Data Center Services at a Glance
Data Center Architecture Workshops
In a two-day strategy workshop tailored to your individual requirements, we provide your data center managers with an understanding of future-proof data center solutions. The workshop is conducted at your site by one of our senior consultants who is very familiar with both business requirements and data center technologies and solutions. Together with your experts, we will spend two intensive days developing a rough architectural design for next-generation data center services in a consolidated, virtualized, automated environment.
Development of a Next-Generation Data Center Design
Based on the rough design developed in the strategy workshop, we develop a detailed design specification for a future-proof next-generation data center for you.
As-is analysis and target concept
[Detailed analysis of the existing data center (review of existing network documentation, review of application architecture, analysis of existing performance data).
- Collection of information as a basis for the requirements definition together with the IT managers in the companies on site (applications, security, servers, network, storage)
- Detailed analysis of data center requirements
Detailed design and migration plan
- Creation of a detailed design specification, including performance and scalability requirements, business continuity and disaster recovery, network services, physical layer connectivity, environment (heating, power, cabling, space requirements).
- Documentation of the design
- Creation of a migration plan for the implementation of the new data center architecture.
If you have not yet decided on specific suppliers, we will support you in the preparation and evaluation of a tender:
- Creation of an RFP with the functional requirements of the new data center design
- Documentation and proposal for RFP analysis / evaluation criteria
- Presentation and, if necessary, adaptation of the design
Data Center Implementation
If you have already selected certain suppliers, we will support you in implementing the detailed design specifications and develop a detailed implementation plan for you based on the functional design specification.
