Data Life Cycle Management
The core challenge when dealing with storage is proper use of technology assets to cost-effectively satisfy business requirements for data performance, availability and durability. Logicalis offers a wide array of storage solutions, with services to fit any organization’s needs.
Increasing VM Density
It is common for the backup needs of a VM implementation to drive its storage design and density limits. Increased VM density, volatility and mobility also increase strain on administrators, furthering the need for automated storage allocation and assignment—or, in other words, the necessity of treating the VM/storage relationship as a cloud. Logicalis will work closely with your team to properly plan and execute a virtualization storage solution to transform your organization’s infrastructure and provide measurable ROI.
Storage Systems (NAS/SAN/Cloud)
Network Attached Storage (NAS) and Storage Area Network (SAN) solutions are the primary building blocks of most storage strategies. Logicalis can help you assess your long-term objectives (scale up, scale out, archive) and storage method (file, block, object) to best meet your business requirements.
Disaster Recovery (DR) and Data Protection
Ensuring that an organization’s valuable data is not only protected but also available for quick recovery is a major concern for IT. Logicalis offers a range of solutions and services that provide cost effective DR and data protection options. Services such as DR as a Service (DRaaS) offer the ability to protect your data while transitioning to an efficient, predictable operational expense model that avoids unwieldy capital outlays.
Logicalis utilizes a four-step process to develop targeted data storage solutions that align with business goals more deeply than other cookie-cutter offerings. We revisit each phase of the process as changes occur to make sure our efforts stay on the right track.
