More and more British companies are finding that they can increase their computing power and save money by migrating their network to the Cloud, according to ANS Group.
To demonstrate these advantages British cloud infrastructure specialists ANS Group recently hosted Great British Data Centre Event at the Cisco House that overlooks the London Olympic Stadium.
"In business, as in sport, you have to optimise every aspect of your performance in order to compete," said Paul Sweeney, Managing Director of ANSGroup plc. "Over the course of the day we will be demonstrating how our FlexPod combination of Cisco, NetApp and VMware technology can cut the costs and optimise the performance of any network to ensure that the customer gleans every possible advantage from their IT spend," said Mr Sweeney - whose company specialises in the provision of 24/7 managed IT services to both the public and private sectors.
Computer networks have evolved over the years from separate dedicated components to a unified intelligent infrastructure. Initially every component was separate, the server network, the storage network, the core network, the telephony network and the wireless network. Expansion of these networks was both costly and time consuming, servers and storage grew in a linear manner with very little utilisation.
ANS Group has harnessed many technological advances such as Cisco's Unified Computing and Nexus switching, VMware's Server and Desktop Virtualisation and NetApp's Intelligent Storage & De-duplication to create flexible, safe data centres for clients all backed up by enterprise SLA's.
ANS Group has achieved a unique level of partner accreditation with Cisco, NetApp and VMware inEurope and as such is perfectly positioned to provide the myriad benefits that a FlexPod data centre can deliver.
