Business Demands Drive The Next-Generation Data Center
Global organizations today face formidable challenges as they compete in a fast-paced and changing business environment. Consider some IT trends that impact the way organizations do business:

* Rapidly evolving technologies heighten the need for investment protection
* Exponentially rising data volumes require a Data Center with plenty of headroom
* A diversified, growing user population drives unprecedented demand for performance
* Globalization of business creates a new norm of 7x24 availability
* The growing influence of the Internet, intranets, and extranets makes web-enabled applications essential to business operations
* Business functions that move outside the purview of the Data Center through outsourcing, web technology, or other technologies require an integrated Data Center
* The emerging force of Windows® adds a layer of complexity to an already heterogeneous Data Center infrastructure
* Network architectures that move toward a "thin client" distributed computing model call for a robust Data Center
* The need for information demands a Data Center that supports on-line analytical processing and decision support systems

Your Data Center may, in fact, already be managing hundreds of terabytes of data, fielding requests from thousands of visitors a day to your organization's Web site, managing sophisticated information transactions, or deploying new resource-intensive business applications. Meeting the expectations of your users both now and in the future requires agility and the ability to maintain effective economies while protecting your investments.

A Structured Data Center Solution
C-Byte's Data Center solution is a structured approach built around several essential disciplines to create a flexible, adaptable next-generation Data Center that meets the expectations of your users.

Scalable, Flexible Computing Platform
C-Byte is uniquely positioned to bring the power of Intel's architecture to your Data Center. Paralleling Intel's development roadmap, we designed the architecture around the Intel Pentium® processor to bring its inherent scalability and adaptability to our Data Center platform. As processor technology continues to evolve, C-Byte can take full advantage of the increased computing power that new chip sets provide.

This scalability leaves plenty of headroom in your Data Center to accommodate exponential growth of data and processing requirements.

We support the broad operating flexibility crucial in heterogeneous environments, thus helping you capitalize on your investment in legacy, Unix, and Windows. It also provides a path for Windows to the Data Center. C-Byte is uniquely capable of supporting a combined Unix/Windows Data Center operating environment—all in the same system; thus, when Windows is ready for the Data Center, C-Byte will be ready for Windows.

High Availability
C-Byte's expertise in open systems architecture and our suite of Data Center services are leveraged to create a high availability environment with 99.95 percent or better data and applications availability on a 7x24 basis.

C-Byte's Data Center solution meets high availability requirements through specific hardware and software design attributes, including redundancy, automatic reconfiguration, on-line replacement, and rolling upgrades. Our services help you create a Data Center that takes into account such considerations as application availability and failover, data distribution and replication, user connectivity, and disaster recovery. Additional capabilities, such as environmental audits, proactive alerts, fault monitoring, and remote monitoring enable superior availability.

Integration Among Data Center Platforms
A structured Data Center solution is essential to deploying a next-generation Data Center in a complex, heterogeneous environment. C-Byte's proven open systems approach enables policies, procedures, application instrumentation, management infrastructure, and tools to be integrated for seamless operation.

C-Byte addresses data integration between legacy systems and open systems by supporting industry leaders in storage management. To achieve application integration, we pull together a complete package of best-of-breed hardware and software tools that meet your business needs. We support operations integration by extending systems management planning services to encompass the legacy environment.
