Data Centre

It’s the key cornerstone of your transformation journey. The modern data centre has evolved - we’ll help you evolve with it.

The data centre network integrates different technologies such as switches, firewalls, application content delivery, and storage appliances. Applications and their data requirements are evolving and growing with increasing pressures on the network, demanding higher bandwidth and lower latency. There is an expectation on the network to be always up with full visibility. Connectivity between physical data centres and cloud providers such as AWS and Azure is driving new approaches to networking, such as hybrid cloud, where applications operate across different environments. Traditional networks are now replaced with software-defined solutions that utilise overlay technologies such as VXLAN and advanced routing in BGP-EVPN. Such solutions allow for automation and rapid deployments.

Data Centre Automation

Your data centre is a critical part of your business strategy. The faster it produces results, the more competitive your business can be in a world that values speed. To reach the speed you need, your data centre must be agile – it must be automated.

From infrastructure to applications, we can support the right automation strategy for your organisation. Automation across your data centre and cloud environments allows you to maximise time and resources when building and maintain your infrastructure. With an ‘Infrastructure as Code’ approach, you can innovative integrations that can automate, optimise, and secure your data centre

Storage

A data-driven business is a competitive business. If, for most businesses, people are the most valuable asset, your data is often a close second.

As your business grows, so does the amount of data you need to store. with WhiteSpider we create solutions that store and secure this data. Typically using software-defined storage, you have the flexibility to scale storage solutions on demand.

Virtualisation

In today's hybrid world, with demands for IT resource, pressure to migrate to the cloud, and cost of energy ever increasing, leveraging the power of virtualisation can improve IT’s ability to rapidly meed business demands.

IT teams are coming under increasing pressure to consolidate more and more. Virtualisation not only increases the redundancy of your production environment, but also greatly improves the ability to deploy a simple and cost effective disaster recovery/business continuity solution.

Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI)

A software-defined system that combines commodity data centre server hardware with locally attached storage, HCI delivers highly scalable, private cloud capabilities that improve the efficiency, agility and resilience of IT systems.

With experience across a range of vendor solutions, including Nutanix, Cisco Hyperflex, HPV Simplicity and VMware, we can help design, deliver and manage HCI solutions that deliver simplified private cloud with the agility, performance and security of public cloud.

DC Networking

Your data centre is key to supporting the growth of your business. Even in the era of cloud, a well designed data centre network is critical to enabling scale and agility across on-premise and public cloud.

With our team we deliver software-defined solutions, such as Cisco ACI and VMware NSX-T that you can manage and provision complex infrastructure through code. This means you can deliver services quickly and securely, using unified, centrally managed automation and orchestration.
 

DC Security

With crucial data and apps underpinning your business operations, any downtime could mean both revenue loss and damage to your reputation.

As malicious attacks increase, combined with an increase in risk from multi-cloud environments, robust security architecture data protection and resilience strategy to keep your data protected and provide a roadmap to fast recovery, minimising any potential disruption to your business.

Sustainable Data Centres

There are three main metrics which can be monitored within a Data Centre to establish energy use effectiveness. These are:
Hardware Energy Consumption
PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness)
Carbon Intensity

At WhiteSpider, we monitor these key metrics using our bespoke built Merlin platform that provides powerful insights into critical data and can provide absolute visibility and clarity. You cannot act upon what you cannot see. Merlin solves this. Energy consumption, PUE and carbon intensity are all used dynamically by Merlin to calculate the carbon emissions of your IT infrastructure. However, data only becomes valuable when it delivers actionable intelligence. In order to identify areas where energy savings can be made (and cost and GHGs reduced) we use policies to optimise the environment.

WhiteSpider managed the transition smoothly, allowing us to significantly save time, money and resources. Now we can really focus on making IT lead digital change in our organisation
