Data Center

The ever-increasing dependence on IT to deliver business services has created a need for greater data center capacity. To ensure business agility, data center facilities must be as flexible as the IT infrastructure they house. As your business grows and your data center ages, you’ll have to face some tough decisions about how to meet the increasing demands on your data center. Will you modernize the existing facility, build a new data center to accommodate future growth, or relocate to a co-location facility? Long View’s expert data center facility consultants can help you choose the option that best fits your company’s capacity requirements.


The Backbone of IT Availability

Beyond capacity, you need to consider risk management issues such as availability and uptime requirements, redundant critical infrastructure and disaster recovery requirements. The emergence of technologies like Converged Infrastructure and the prevalence of server virtualization mean higher density computing environments that can tax cooling systems and cause service interruptions. Our experienced data center team takes a practical approach to addressing these complex issues and supports your needs with full lifecycle data center services.

To ensure reliability, Long View’s business continuity experts work with you to develop a custom disaster recovery plan to get your data center up and running with minimal delay in the event of interrupted IT service.

Long View’s business continuity planning approach follows a repeatable model that always starts with identifying business requirements and establishing current capabilities. Whether it’s a data center infrastructure project or development of a disaster recovery strategy and plan, our data center consultants and business continuity planners engage subject matter experts from our various consulting areas to produce a comprehensive solution tailored to your business needs.
