Consulting Services

Enterprises are continuously looking at optimizing the cost of managing their Data Centers. CFO’s are looking at reduced investments and higher efficiencies.  Thanks to newer technologies, this goal of CFO’s can be achieved by involving right consultants. DCM has been investing in learning and implementing these new technologies and providing the most effective and viable solution to Enterprises.

Optimization of IT Infrastructure

Virtualization of Server is a reality now. However, implementing an effective solution which does not under perform and is scalable easily across the enterprise is still a challenge. This is where DCM consultants can help.
Virtualization of SAN
The disks attached to servers are often underutilized as they are attached to specific applications. Virtualization of SAN provides a single consolidated view of the storage and one can allocate the required storage to a specific application. This optimizes the usage of available disk space and hence reduces the overall cost.
Virtualization of Network
Creating a new VM may take few minutes, but deploying a new service would still take couple of days primarily due to Network configuration issues. Virtualization of Network (Switches, Routers and Firewalls etc.) would reduce this to hours.
