Not all your data is created or looked at equally. The storage architecture that you implement should reflect that. Different tiers of data warrant different tiers of storage. RTI will design a storage solution that fits your business, not a solution that you try to fit your business into. With the ever changing ways that data keeps increasing, technologies like Deduplication and Thin Provisioning will help drive costs down on the storage you do need to run your business as economically as possible.
Backup and Archiving
No one has backup issues, they have data restore issues. To eliminate down time and lost data RTI offers custom solutions that offer either source or target based Deduplication technologies. To add to that, not all Deduplication technologies can be looked at equally. Single instance store, block level and variable block level technology needs to be included when deciding what backup solution is right for you. Don’t let the front in cost of backup affect the backend cost of lost data and down time.
What is your Recovery Point Objective? What is your Recovery Time Objective? These are the first two questions RTI will ask when you want to discuss the uptime of your data center and business. Most of the time the RTO and RPO vary depending on the applications your business needs to keep the doors open. RTI will provide you with a bound process on what to do in the event of a catastrophic event occurs or a human error to eliminate down time between your two data centers.
RTI can provide IT Administrators and data owners the vital intelligence they need to control access to business date. Our solutions deliver the visibility and auditing you need to determine who can access your unstructured data, who is accessing it and who should have access. Data entitlement management is a business process and belongs with business data owners, and they can make the transition possible without infrastructure changes or business disruption.
Increases in applications and data have created demands on the network that are exponentially growing requiring the Layer 2 and Layer 3 infrastructure to constantly evolve. Enterprises have gone from 10Mbps, 100Mbps, 1Gbps, 10Gbps, and now 40Gbps and 100Gbps connectivity in a decade. The proliferation of access layer devices in the network, both wired and wireless require new densities and performance levels at the core that require investments in network infrastructure.
Application networking is a wide reaching term that refers to that category of solutions that address Layer 4 through 7 of the network. These solutions have exploded in recent years due to the trends of data center consolidation and web application proliferation. These trends require that applications be made highly available both across servers in the data centers and across data centers themselves, through advanced application delivery mechanisms involving both local and global load balancing.
Security and Compliance
Network security has exploded as enterprises have become increasingly interconnected both within the organization and with their business partners and customers. Compliance and regulatory bodies have been tasked with ensuring that data is properly secured, with standards applying to almost every vertical: SOX, PCI, HIPAA and more. This has brought about an entire new generation of products augmenting and replacing traditional approaches like traditional firewalls and IDS systems.
The latest development in networking is an emerging set of solutions referred to as Cloud Networking. What is Cloud Networking? It is the logical evolution of the trend of data center consolidation. The cloud presents a means of centralizing all the data and applications in a transparent infrastructure that can be extended when needed. The cloud requires the ability to abstract and virtualize every layer – well beyond virtualizing servers. This has introduced a whole new suite of products that virtualize routing, switching, firewalls, IPS, even I/O to provide the most flexible, extensible solution possible.
Network Tools and Monitoring
Building the most robust, highest performance environment is important, but without the ability to monitor and measure that environment IT cannot be sure it is meeting its SLAs and providing the best experience to its users. That is where tools and monitoring solutions come in. A network monitoring solution should provide comprehensive application and network performance management and visibility.
- Comply with internal policies and external regulations
- Promote operational efficiency
- Ensure business continuance in the event of a disaster, and
- Minimize both operational and capital expenditures
Data is backed up for use in one or more of the following ways:
This includes any use that can reasonably be expected to happen. Examples of operational use include restoring a deleted file, recovering from the failure of a single system, and providing a developer with a copy of a production database. The need to minimize effort and delay; and maximize efficiency dominates here.
Although these use scenarios are not likely to happen, if one was to happen, the impact on the business would be so great that the cost of protecting against the remote chance is justified.
This data is not likely to be used, but preservation of this data for a predetermined amount of time is mandated by company policy, external regulations or both. The consequences of non-compliance validate these expenses.
Each significant data set will have requirements in at least one of these areas. It is critical to understand each data set and document its business requirements for the following reasons:
- to map requirements to technologies and processes
- to understand future growth requirements
- as a basis for reporting on data protection activities, and
- to obtain executive sponsorship for data protection expenses.
Optimize and manage from the desktop to the datacenter.
Virtualization essentially lets one computer do the job of multiple computers, by sharing the resources of a single computer across multiple environments. Virtual servers and virtual desktops let you host multiple operating systems and multiple applications locally and in remote locations, freeing you from physical and geographical limitations. In addition to energy savings and lower capital expenses due to more efficient use of your hardware resources, you get high availability of resources, better desktop management, increased security, and improved disaster recovery processes when you build a virtual infrastructure
