The purpose of this workshop is to help your organization better manage your network to support your business operations. When most networks were designed, they were configured to support basic connectivity (including dial-up), file and print sharing, basic email, simple web presence, and surviving Y2K. However, the modern network has evolved and it needs to support application delivery from multiple locations; corporate, hosting provider, remote offices, and service provider cloud. The network must support new demands for collaboration, real time information, and virtualized resources.
Virtualization is driving network transformation in the data center; need for carrier class network architecture. This includes ability to perform switch software upgrades without downtime. The primary network attributes that enable virtualization and migration to cloud computing include:
The network is mission critical to your business and 24/7 operation is a must. Does your network meet all your business’s computing needs? Below is summary of workshop process.
We start by working with your team to gain an understanding of your current network management capabilities. Then we identify objectives, business requirements, and map out use cases. If necessary, we will evaluate your infrastructure and document your networks performance baseline and identify performance, obsolescence and capabilities gaps.
This evaluation includes:
Below are some of the deliverables:
These deliverables will be used to determine next steps for addressing any deficiencies or gaps in the areas where your network is not providing the most cost-effective benefit to your operations.
