Storage systems continue to be at the heart of any data center. As the volume of data that needs to be stored securely is growing rapidly, organizations increasingly find themselves facing the challenge of selecting the right technology solution that delivers the perfect cost/performance ratio.
Storage systems are systems for collecting, storing, processing and structuring data. By harnessing the wealth of data resources at their disposal, companies can extract valuable insights, enabling them to make informed and successful business decisions.
As technology advances and new standards emerge (e.g., NVMe over Fibre Channel), the range of available storage solutions is growing to offer a broader range of possible solutions. We offer several types of storage systems that ensure secure data storage and availability while maximizing space utilization, energy efficiency, and investment returns.
As the amount of data grows, protocols, such as block-storage SAN and file-storage NAS systems, are increasingly complemented by object storage systems. These possess the capability to treat each dataset as an independent object, accompanied by its unique metadata and identifiers.
All data is stored in a central location and can be replicated. Storage systems can be virtualized to allow unified management, or they can be configured as software-defined storage (SDS).
To accommodate individual workloads, such as the growth of unstructured data, a dedicated storage system is defined that aligns with the required connectivity, performance, and capacity parameters.
To increase performance, you can simply add storage capacity or further scale up your system by adding processing power. Systems can be replicated between multiple data centers, regardless of their location(s).
Affordable high-performance flash storage systems have become accessible for every data center, while traditional hybrid spinning disk systems continue to be utilized due to their lower cost.
Are you interested in learning how a comprehensive approach and a suite of virtualized solutions included in VMware VCF can help you easily manage virtual infrastructure in your data center and cloud service?

Contact us and find out more about leading technologies for future Data Center environments.
We analyze the existing IT infrastructure, the technologies used, documentation and diagrams. We assess the complexities of the configuration and develop a general plan with improvement recommendations.
We describe the key building blocks and concepts and prepare an architecture diagram of the proposed solution and integration with the existing IT environment. The proposal ensures improved utilization of hardware and other IT resources and compatibility with new technologies and providers of cloud computing services.
We prepare a list of products/software with the relevant licenses with corresponding vendors’ SKUs and descriptions of all components.
We design an IP/VLAN network plan for each segment, allocating resources to individual components, prepare infrastructure diagrams and blueprints for server racks, physical connections, and cabling. We identify critical points of failure and operational activities for managing the data center and the IT services we provide.
We create a detailed infrastructure architecture and configuration instructions for the building blocks and a communication matrix for the services that make up the infrastructure solution (service names, target/source, protocol/interfaces). We prepare the operating rulebook and set up and configure the IT security infrastructure elements.
Izdelamo podrobno arhitekturo infrastrukture in navodila za konfiguracijo gradnikov ter komunikacijsko matriko za storitve, ki sestavljajo infrastrukturno rešitev (imena storitev, cilji/vir, protokol/vmesniki). Pripravimo pravilnik delovanja in postavimo ter konfiguriramo elemente IT-varnostne infrastrukture.
