Data Centre Consolidation
Streamlined Data Centre Consolidation for Enhanced Efficiency, Cost Savings, Security, and Agile OperationsOur Services
Data centre consolidation is the process of reducing the number of physical data centres an organisation operates in order to improve efficiency, reduce costs and streamline operations.
Hardware-based consolidation focuses on using intelligent switches, storage virtualisation, blade chassis and rack management while software-based consolidation includes switching to a single management console to manage several different platforms, server virtualisation, cloud computing and automation.
Our consolidation services can include moving data and applications from smaller data centres to larger ones, or even migrating to a cloud-based solution.
