Discover Options to Reduce Your IT Complexity and Risk
As reliance on data production grows and technology solutions become more complicated, the resources needed to support increasingly complex IT environments are challenged. In many businesses, IT resources are limited and can be quickly overwhelmed.
If you fall behind in keeping up with things such as backups, patches, storage, and security, the odds greatly increase that you’ll face an outage or another problem down the road that will negatively impact your business.
Enhanced services enable a business to offload IT operations to a service provider who assumes an ongoing responsibility for 24-hour monitoring, security, managing and/or problem resolution for your IT systems within a data center.
Extend Your Team to Deliver Comprehensive Services
Staying ahead of the curve and keeping today’s dynamic IT environments available and secure requires a wide range of expertise. Enterprises are choosing to extend their capacity by working with best-in-class technology partners to manage all or part of their IT. Through its partner program, CyrusOne offers enterprise-class enhanced services from standalone to fully managed, including:
- Monitoring plus NOC Support Services
- Managed security solutions including managed firewall services, intrusion detection/prevention, and log management
- High-performance data storage solutions
- Scalable data backup for dedicated servers and virtual machines
- Business Continuity
- Cloud services
- Migration and Implementation assistance
Observing network performance allows for informed decisions and the prevention of costly downtime. High-performance monitoring of physical equipment, virtual infrastructure, software, and operations reduces risk supporting optimal business performance.
Additional NOC Support Services include technical resources to respond to alerts, trained technicians to monitor devices ensuring availability of customer environments, and access to advanced troubleshooting.
Keeping sensitive information safe requires both physical and logical security. Housing your IT infrastructure in a data center is a great first step. However, the persistent rise in security threats and the increase in regulatory compliance requirements make it essential for businesses to think strategically about managed security services.
Deploying the virtual tools needed to keep your data and networks safe as well as the staff to monitor them may require more resources than you have. Managed security providers can protect your systems round-the-clock so you, and your clients, can sleep a lot easier.
The digital universe will grow by a factor of 10 – from 4.4 trillion gigabytes to 44 trillion through 2020. It more than doubles every two years. The need to capture more and bigger data sets to support and inform business decisions has generated a greater demand for storage.
To keep pace with the speed at which this is all taking place, companies need fast, scalable and resilient solutions. Data storage providers can deliver the feature set and performance your company requires without the capital expense. These providers can leverage the critical storage technology, proven applications and expert staff that’s rarely available inside most companies.
All organizations must protect their data from loss, corruption, hardware failure, and disasters, natural and manmade. Providing comprehensive data backup solutions for both dedicated servers and virtual machines is a critical role of the IT organization. Solutions that are fast, flexible and reliable ensure business continuity when disaster strikes.
It’s a 24/7 year-round lights-on world. No interruptions, despite any natural or man-made disasters that may occur. No excuses, just 100 percent uptime. Regulatory agencies often mandate businesses have proper procedures in place to ensure uptime.
Business continuity and disaster recovery planning ensure the capability of your company to continue to deliver products or services at pre-defined levels following a disruptive incident. To meet this need, CyrusOne can help provide the planning, back-up data centers, robust network connectivity, and, in many cases, an off-site location where your employees can work when they can’t access your offices.
Cloud and Hosting
Many businesses are moving some of their data and applications to cloud environments. Deciding what type of cloud (public, private or hybrid) and how much hardware you’ll need to support a cloud environment often requires expertise that doesn’t exist in-house.
