Server Consolidation Solutions
Customers now face the challenge of huge increase in data processing requirements which has resulted in servers being added faster than the IT environment can manage them, and if the legacy servers are under performing and difficult to manage, then the IT management should consider employing server consolidation as an effective way to reduce costs, power and space requirements and the management complexities created by server disparity and sprawl.
As resource requirements grow, server farms and their associated costs grow along with them, highlighting the necessity for server consolidation. Server consolidation is a strategy for reducing costs, increasing utilization and improving the control of IT infrastructure by standardizing system management procedures, reducing the number of data centers, or reducing the number of servers.
ARC being a partner of leading Server vendors offers cost-effective solutions for Server Consolidation and standardizing. For customers challenged by heterogeneous server environment supported by different vendors and platforms, ARC can provide efficient Server consolidation and standardization solutions.
Business Critical Servers
For an organization that needs to run mission critical applications with zero down time has traditionally need to look beyond the Intel based servers and Windows/Linux platforms. But ARC now has solutions based on the Intel architecture and running of the Windows / Linux/ VMWare platform, with the high availability and mission critical attributes of high end computers.
Storage Consolidation Solutions
Information is critical to the success of nearly every kind of business, and the rate at which information is being generated is increasing, in some cases, exponentially. Of course, this information unto itself is of no value if it cannot be accessed and used to benefit the business. Business information must be made readily available to the appropriate users and applications when and where it’s needed; central to that use scenario is the storage infrastructure upon which the information resides.
ARC facilitates organization with the ability to provide access to information to its users whenever it is required by providing turnkey Storage Consolidation Solutions. Our Objective for customers is is to facilitate data backup and archiving for all subscribers in an enterprise, while minimizing the time required to access and store data. Other desirable features include simplification of the storage infrastructure, centralized and efficient management, optimized resource utilization, and low operating cost. We provide solutions on storage consolidation architectures for network-attached storage (NAS), redundant array of independent disks (RAID), and the storage area network (SAN).
Unified Storage Solutions
Unified storage (sometimes termed network unified storage or NUS) is a storage system that makes it possible to run and manage files and applications from a single device. To this end, a unified storage system consolidates file-based and block-based access in a single storage platform and supports fibre channel SAN, IP-based SAN (iSCSI), and NAS (network attached storage).
ARC being a partner for leading Unified Storage Solutions vendors, has the ability to provide the solution for organizations which could not afford having a separate SAN and NAS infrastructure. By providing single unified storage architecture we have reduced the data storage costs of organizations significantly. And the solutions are high scalable in nature whereby the infrastructure can be scaled to meet the increase in data requirement.
Data classification is the categorization of data for its most effective and efficient use. In a basic approach to storing computer data, data can be classified according to its critical value or how often it needs to be accessed, with the most critical or often-used data stored on the fastest media while other data can be stored on slower (and less expensive) media. This kind of classification tends to optimize the use of data storage for multiple purposes - technical, administrative, legal and economic.
ARC offers a combination of software and services that will be used to deliver this solution, classifying information based on metadata, we help enterprises understand, classify and manage their data based on the information that is inside. The Data Classification solutions enable organizations with access to critical information whenever it is required at a much lower cost than traditional methods of storing data.
We at ARC started the process of providing Data de-duplication services to have more efficient use of disk space and to also allows for longer disk retention periods, which provides better recovery time objectives (RTO) for a longer time and reduces the need for tape backups.
Data deduplication (often called "intelligent compression" or "single-instance storage") is a method of reducing storage needs by eliminating redundant data. Only one unique instance of the data is actually retained on storage media, such as disk or tape. Redundant data is replaced with a pointer to the unique data copy. Planning for better storage capacity can not only helps reduce spends on storage infrastructure, but also improves performance and reliability of backups and data restoration.
We provide solutions on Data Deduplication technologies that can enable the storage of 20-50 times more data on same capacity and makes data backup to disks and electronic vaulting of backups for disaster recovery a more viable option. Data deduplication offers other benefits. Lower storage space requirements will save money on disk expenditures. Data deduplication also reduces the data that must be sent across a WAN for remote backups, replication, and disaster recovery.
Information Lifecycle Management
With our experience in the industry for more than a decade and also with our partnership with the key vendors, we started providing customers with IFL consultancy.
Information life cycle management (ILM) is a comprehensive approach to managing the flow of an information system's data and associated metadata from creation and initial storage to the time when it becomes obsolete and is deleted. Data management has become increasingly important as businesses face compliance issues in the wake of legislation, such as HIPAA and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act that regulates how organizations must deal with particular types of data. Data management experts stress that information life cycle management should be an organization-wide enterprise, involving procedures and practices as well as applications. We offer Information Life cycle Management solution both within a single Storage System as well as across multiple storage sub-systems, also taking care of data archiving and automatic expiration of data for systematic reclamation of storage capacity.
