Storage Management

Agilant’s Managed Storage solutions accelerate storage provisioning and enable infrastructure visibility. Depending on a customer’s requirements, storage is either located onsite, offsite, in the cloud, or a hybrid of these models. Storage infrastructure can become very much dependent on a customer’s comfort level, real-estate expenses, and the required level of traditional infrastructure control. But regardless of the location or circumstance, data is the key. Our solutions focus on how to manage data, move it, protect it, and extract its full value. Basically, we put your data to work.

Agilant’s Storage Management boost productivity and drives environment consistency while simplifying and speeding up management processes. Automation reduces error prone manual tasks while virtualized and container management tools provide for visibility and granular control of storage. Agilant empowers customers with self-service access to storage with broad set of configuration management tools, APIs, and language libraries.

Storage Capacity

Aside from where storage will reside, organizations must also carefully monitor their storage capacity usage today and plan for what they will need tomorrow. Storage capacity is driven by the practice of assessing and forecasting future storage requirements so that just enough space can be allocated to meet the needs of users and applications.

Obtaining, managing, and maintaining storage, and related technologies, consumes IT departments’ time and money, which are of the utmost importance in a rapidly expanding market. In order to provide the stability, security, and agility required for your company’s technology needs, you need to lower costs while ensuring existing infrastructure remains stable.

Agilant can help you combat these challenges, allowing you to fine-tune your storage capacity needs as your organization requires, and enabling you to think differently about how storage is managed. Our storage capacity services allows you to simplify your storage administration by deploying managed service professionals, leveraging extensive management best practices and proven governance methodologies based on ITIL standards. We not only implements all the core ITIL services, but allow you to scale up or down your service consumption as your organization requires — paying-as-you-go and controlling the cost of your organization’s storage requirements to only what you need. You realize long-term value for your business instead of just utility.

And with managed or as-a-service models, you pay for what you use.

Managed Disaster Recovery

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is an enterprise-grade disaster recovery solution that provides rapid failover to a secondary or tertiary site with the flexibility to boot from the appliance or cloud. As companies cope with the growing amount of corporate information being generated every day, they face a daunting truth: without their data, they have no business. Crippling cyberattacks and equipment failures, human errors, and natural disasters commonly put an organization’s operations at halt. At best, data loss or IT downtime can be an expensive inconvenience. At worst, it can be a catastrophic financial blow

Organizations need a backup service to get their business up and running again fast after a disaster or data loss – without draining IT resources in the process. Over the last decade, cloud backup and disaster recovery solutions have emerged as secure, cost-effective and reliable solutions. Agilant provides customers with solutions that are coherent with their business structure and objectives. Our goal is clear: ensure organizations get back up and running quickly and reliably after a data loss event.

High Availability Management

When we think of downtime, there’s often a blur of alerts flashing, IT departments scrambling, end users at a standstill, and financial loss. And that’s often the case during a disaster or cyber-attack. But here’s the thing – Downtime isn’t always unplanned. That’s right. Downtime is a necessary evil, especially in IT environments during complex migrations, system overhauls and upgrades, and organization-wide shifts. Granted, downtime must be planned carefully, as to affect the least amount of end users possible and have the least financial impact on the organization. Because business never sleeps.

Regardless of whether planned or unplanned, downtime is downtime. And IT always runs the risk that what is shut down may not be restored. Agilant’s high availability management solutions are geared to manage these risks and restore business continuity quickly, seamlessly, and with little to no impact.

Key Features:

  • Provides flexibility so you free-up valuable IT resources for more-strategic business initiatives
  • Utilizes Agilant IT technical resources at a fraction of the cost of hiring additional resources
  • Minimizes staffing and training issues
  • Proactively maintains your infrastructure and systems 24x7x365
  • Expands your IT capabilities and coverage
