Design Services

The rapid rollouts of new technologies have created a demand for a new approach to Datacenter architectures. Today’s Datacenter architectures are complex and embrace many technologies in Computing, Storage, and Networking. These Datacenter technologies create new possibilities for business, increase agility and reduce efforts. However, these technology trends also create fresh challenges for the Datacenter that should be wisely considered. 

 

To reduce complexity and lower costs, an optimum design should be chosen carefully to address all these challenges while deploying and operating these new technologies.

Our design services ensure our clients get the optimum design that delivers resiliency, agility, smooth scalability, less complexity and make them move confidently with a cost-effective strategy and measurable ROI that maximizes business benefits.

Our Design Services bring you REAL BENEFITS

1

Design your datacenter optimally without oversizing or inadequate technologies and select the right architecture that brings agility and smooth scalability.

2

3

Easily choose the right technology that best fits your environment with up-to-date presentations and round table discussions.

4

Create new opportunities for technologies that enhance your business process.

5

Save your budget by paying in hourly/daily based wage instead of hiring full-time designers.

 

FOR DATACENTER

Datacenter design services cover design of datacenter's computing, networking, and facilities. Datacenter Design Services are customized according to datacenter Tier and size, covering all datacenter sizes, from small scale datacenters to large scale datacenters found in Enterprises like internet service providers (ISPs). Datacenter design services focus on building datacenters that adapts to changing conditions with faster provisioning of services and high agility while reducing expenses using up-to-date technologies like software- defined computing (SDC) and software-defined networking (SDN) that brings automation, analytics, and self-healing to Datacenters. Datacenter design services comprise three main categories of services; Computing, Networking, and Facilities. Each service category includes several deliverables that can be delivered all as one package or individually according to client desire.

COMPUTING

  • Conducting computing assessment that drives solution sizing and specifications. Assessment includes collecting info for computing resources, currently deployed workload, type of workloads and future expansion for workloads.

  • Identifying business goals and technical goals that govern the selection of computing equipment and the integration level.

  • Selection of datacenter computing technologies to cover the needed goals (Business and technical).

  • Conducting up to date Technical Presentations/Workshops revealing latest architectures, technologies and new products.

  • Designing the Computing Solution with proper hardware selection of Blades or Rack mount servers that meet the desired requirements. 

  • Delivering Solution Description document with solution design including Logical and Physical layouts.

  • Delivering Rack design Layout (includes computing equipment distribution over racks).

  • Specifying passive and environmental requirements driven from selected devices including power, cooling, floor load capacity, cables, connectivity, Rack units (RU), Rack specifications..etc.

  • Delivering Solution Bill of Material (BoM), Solution Scope of Work (SoW) and RFP Documents.

NETWORKING

  • Conducting datacenter networking assessment that drives solution sizing and specifications. Assessment includes collecting info for computing nodes, L4-L7 devices, cabling design, rack design and future expansion.

  • Identifying business goals and technical goals that govern the network architecture and equipment selection.

  • Selection of datacenter networking architecture and technologies to cover the needed goals (Business and technical).

  • Conducting up to date Technical Presentations/ Workshops revealing latest architectures, technologies and new products.

  • Designing the Datacenter Networking with proper switching fabrics selection of classical netowrking or software defined networking (SDN) that meet the desired requirements. 

  • Delivering Solution Description including Logical and Physical layouts.

  • Specifying passive and environmental requirements that were driven from the selected devices which include power, cooling, floor load capacity, cables and connectivity, Rack units (RU), Rack specifications..etc.

  • Delivering Solution Bill of Material (BoM), Solution Scope of Work (SoW) and RFP Documents.

FACILITIES

  • Conducting datacenter facilities assessment where datacenter environmental info is collected. The assessment includes gathering info for datacenter size, datacenter tier, equipment physical specifications, equipment average/maximum power capacity, equipment cooling specifications and future expansions for the datacenter.

  • Identifying business goals and technical goals that govern the architectural and mechanical facilities equipment selection.

  • Identifying and selecting the architectural and mechanical facilities specifications that include datacenter space, power capacity, cooling capacity, airflow, floor load capacity, physical security and cabling design.

  • Designing datacenter copper/fiber cabling according to the requirements with less-complexity and cost-effectively.

  • Designing rack distribution over the datacenter according to network design and environmental /physical specifications.

  • Consulting, Auditing and contributing with architectural and mechanical facilities vendors ensuring best design delivery.

  • Delivering rack design layout, copper/fiber cabling design layout, and air flow design.

FOR ENTERPRISE

Enterprise design services cover design of enterprise's LAN and WAN networking. Enterprise Design Services involves identifying real LAN and WAN requirements that meet business goals and add key values to enterprise networking from high availability, elastic extendability, and ease of monitoring and troubleshooting. Also, Enterprise design services focus on building a network that adapts to changing conditions with faster provisioning of services and high agility while reducing expenses using up-to-date technologies like software defined networking that brings automation, analytics, and self-healing to Enterprise networking. Enterprise design services comprise two main categories of services; LAN Networking and WAN Networking. Each service category includes several deliverables that can be delivered all as one package or individually according to client desire.

LAN NETWORKING

  • Conducting enterprise wired and wireless LAN assessment that drives solution sizing and specifications. Assessment includes collecting info for enterprise building specifications, the number of employees, endpoints associated with the LAN, services running over the LAN, cabling/ connectivity and future expansion for workloads.

  • Identifying business goals and technical goals that govern the networking equipment selection and the integration level.

  • Selection of networking technologies to cover the needed goals (Business and technical).
