Data Center











Drivers for Extending the LAN




  • Do more (or the same) for less
  • Subscription-based software licensing
  • Consolidate support & maintenance costs
  • Focus on payroll management
  • Focus on your business
  • Prepare for the unpredictable
    • Growth
    • Disaster
    • Displaced users
  • Security concerns
  • Regulatory changes like HIPPA, SarBox
  • Flexible infrastructure enables latest technology or quick changes
  • Decrease time managing IT
  • Competitive advantage with new technology
  • Increase operational responsiveness
  • Do more for only incremental cost
  • Remote access

Drivers for Extending the LAN - Uncertainties

  • Compelling Events
    • SEC mandate 9/11  “near-shoring” backup data center
    • Natural disaster
    • Sarb-Ox compliance  data archive, business continuity
  • Regulations
    • Check 21 - banks must accept facsimiles in lieu of the original check
    • HIPAA (Health Insurance Privacy & Accountability Act) - privacy  no paperwork / automate  justifies new network
    • Medicare - PACS Picture Archiving Communications System

Drivers for Extending the LAN – Increase Productivity

The majority of LAN connections in US are Ethernet

10 Gigabit Ethernet will shift focus from LAN-only to a solution integrating LAN & MAN

Remote Management & Monitoring




  • Control
  • Dedicated facility
  • Faster Growth
  • Privacy = Security
  • Tailored to your needs
  • Scalable at incremental costs
  • Time to market
  • Operating Expense vs. Capital Expense
  • Leased Service vs. Private Network
  • Pay as you Grow
  • Management and Maintenance Outsourced to Service Provider
  • “Future proof”

Identify Data Center Facility

The decision to build a data center facility or buy space and services from a service provider can be made based upon a few key factors.


Identify Data Center Facility

Data centers offer physical infrastructure to ensure a high availability environment that enables continuous computing including redundant power systems.

  • Operational features
    • Conditioned/uninterruptible power
      • UPS
      • Generator
  • Raised Flooring
    • Under-floor conduit
    • Detectors
  • Diverse telecommunications facilities

Identify Data Center Facility

Data centers offer an environmental infrastructure to maintain a constant temperature and detect and extinguish fire.

  • Environmental features
    • Zoned air chilling
    • Advanced fire detection
    • Gas-based fire suppression

Identify Data Center Facility

Data centers offer physical and logical security capabilities from cameras and caged space to biometrics and passwords.

  • Security features
    • Physical
      • Key tag readers
      • Closed circuit camera system
      • Biometrics
  • Logical
    • SecureID
    • Passwords

Can Your Company Benefit from a Managed Service ?

Questions to consider:

  • What is your data protection / storage strategy?
  • What changes are you planning to your network to support new applications or convergence?
  • What improvements to your business would be achieved with better information access?
  • What methods do you use to determine utilization on existing networks (how do you know you have enough, and is there lost productivity based on poor performance)?
  • Do you require a higher bandwidth solution for data intensive applications?
  • Are any of your applications latency sensitive (e.g. voice or video)?
  • Are you interested in convergence of voice/video/data onto one network for simplicity, efficiency, and overall cost reduction?
  • Do you have metro or regional connectivity requirements?
  • Do you anticipate geographic growth within your business?
