Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)
Storage Networks can work with any backup application, including Veeam, Unitrends, and Nakivo to create a cost effective offsite backup. We provide failover environments running Hyper-V, KVM, Xen, VMware, i5/OS, and more. Unlike with traditional Disaster Recovery providers, you do not have to pay for the compute resources when you are not using them.
Managing backups can be aggravating and time consuming. Storage Networks can configure and monitor your organization’s onsite and offsite backups. We will ensure that your backup data can be restored.
We will proactively review logs to troubleshoot any errors that occur and apply software and firmware patches as needed. Storage Networks will monitor space utilization on the storage targets to ensure optimal retention.
Network and Security Support
We can assist with:
IPSSEC Site to Site VPN Setup
Site to Azure / AWS VPN Configuration
Client to Site SSL VPN Setup
10Gb, 40Gb, and 100Gb Core Switch Upgrades
Consolidating web filter, IPS, and Endpoint Protection into Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) platforms
Wireless Networking Design
Networking Maintenance (VLAN Configuration, ACLs, dynamic routing)
Switch / Firewall firmware and code updates
Whether you are taking the step from standalone servers to VMWare, upgrading your existing SAN to a cutting edge all-flash array, or moving data to or from an IaaS provider such as AWS or Azure, Storage Networks can aid in drafting and executing a data migration plan that minimizes risk and down time.
We have experience with a wide range of tools that can help move VMs from even free ESXi where vMotion is not a possibility, Microsoft File Server Migration Tool kit, various P2V tools for migrating legacy applications to a virtual environment or “the cloud,” as well as commercial NAS migrators.
Storage Networks also provides hardware support including drive / memory / CPU replacement and upgrades.
Storage Networks provides support for legacy storage systems as well as assistance with designing new solutions. We can help evaluate the cost, complexity, and migration strategy to a new SAN, cloud storage, or hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI.)
Technology Integration Lab
Utilize the Storage Networks demo and integration lab to evaluate the latest storage, backup, and security technologies. Storage Networks can provide remote (and on premise) evaluation devices to help you plan the adoption of hyperconverged infrastructure solutions such as VMWare vSAN, Storage Spaces Direct, StarWind vSAN, Nutanix, and more. Use our equipment to evaluate the impact of spinning disks vs. different grade SSDs, and 10Gb vs 40Gb vs 100Gb Ethernet on your applications.
Evaluate the latest Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) products from Cisco, Fortinet, Checkpoint, Palo Alto, and more.
IT Project Planning & Budgeting
Storage Networks has experience working with many small towns, cities, schools, and SMBs. We understand the budgeting process and competitive bid requirements. For many towns, planning often begins in October and procurement happens in July.
Let us help you plan a budget for your next storage upgrade, server refresh, backup overhaul, or cloud migration without a heavy sales push. After we collect the needed information about your project goals and requirements, we can create a no-obligation rough quote for management / board / town review.
As the next fiscal year approaches, we can evaluate products from different vendors such as HPE, Dell, and Lenovo for the best price and performance.
