Integrating the physical and virtual management of your data.
The growth of today’s computing technology has simply outpaced the growth of the physical infrastructure that supports it. This is why most organizations have separate teams managing each. But this divided management—with separate budgets, visions and vocabularies increases cost and complexity. It also overlooks operational and risk issues that are best remediated when the two worlds become one.
A holistic view of your infrastructure
Because Affigent has deep expertise at key points across a government’s physical and virtual infrastructures, we have a holistic view of both. This enables us to seamlessly integrate solid building construction, suitable emergency preparedness, reliable power supplies, necessary climate control and appropriate protection from all type of intruders—cyber and physical—into a single strategy. This helps reduce complexity, eliminates duplicate costs and gives you a real time “single pane” view of your extended infrastructure for simplified and streamlined management.
What are your most critical priorities today?
Is your data really secured if your physical and data access solutions are not integrated? Both can be IP driven. Why manage each separately? The same goes for your perimeter control and access control cameras. We can help you here today. Or maybe it’s matching data center cooling capacity with IT loads. This task will be managed by an Affigent team with proven expertise in virtualization, consolidation and blade technology. Perhaps it’s standing up a physically secure off-site disaster recovery site, providing a comprehensive assessment and analysis of your data center facility and critical physical infrastructure—including power systems, cooling systems, sensors and rack configurations. Or implementing a holistic, automated monitoring strategy that embraces environmental factors like temperature and humidity within racks and servers. Your priorities and budget constraints will dictate where we start and how far we go.
