Service / Product Information

  • Tri-Paragon has a portfolio of Data Centre services and products to decrease energy consumption, improve overall performance metrics, reduce ownership life cycle costs and improve reliability of Data Centres.

Services:

  • Data Centre Infrastructure Management: Comprised of the processes, guidelines, tools and methodologies used for the provisioning, governance and overall management of Data Centre assets and infrastructures.

We provide a comprehensive approach to operating and maintaining an enterprise-class Data Centre which encompasses IT resources, such as; hardware, software, networks and facilities, including power, cooling, lighting and overall infrastructure.  Factors addressed include:

  • Data Centre energy management (power, cooling, carbon footprint).
  • Resource planning and provisioning.
  • Proactive capacity planning and management.
  • Availability of critical IT systems and resources.
  • Integration of virtualization, networking and cloud computing technologies.
  • Risk assessment and proactive mitigation and management.
  • Cradle-to-grave asset management.
  • Automation.
  • Data Centre Relocation and Migration: Includes migration of applications, data storage and IT equipment between Data Centres while reducing risk and unplanned outages to ensure maximum uptime during execution.

Tri-Paragon has years of experience handling complex virtual and hybrid Data Centre moves and IT transformations.  Nothing is left to chance as we anticipate and proactively deal with any potential risks and challenges prior to occurring.

  • Data Centre Consolidation (also called “IT Consolidation”): An organization’s strategy to reduce IT assets by using more efficient technologies. Some of the consolidation technologies we apply in Data Centres include; server and storage virtualization, replacing mainframes with smaller blade server systems, cloud computing, better capacity planning and using tools for process automation.

Data Centre consolidation is a common consideration for organizations that plan to reduce the size of a single facility or merge one or more facilities in order to reduce overall operation costs and IT footprints.

  • Data Centre Assessments: Identify conditions that adversely affect system efficiency and risks of outages with mitigating factors identified for resolution. Your success depends on aligning strategic business needs with service level execution.

A comprehensive Data Centre Assessment gives you complete visibility across networks, applications, server farms, including storage and cabling assets.  An Assessment is the first best step toward alignment.

  • Data Centre and Infrastructure Decommissioning: Including asset recovery and destruction following relocation and consolidation of Data Centre operations. Decommissioning a data centre is serious business as there are so many elements and variables to be considered.

Avoiding damage to the building’s infrastructure, implementing proper tracking and auditing procedures, including transporting logistics are some of the factors that must be considered.

  • Disaster Recovery Planning and Testing: Ensure system, data availability and recoverability when disaster strikes. Disaster Recovery plans are widely accepted to ensure all critical data, IT systems and networks can be recovered in any event classified as an emergency.

These plans also ensure that corporate business objectives can be achieved during the disruption.  In short, it is a plan that keeps a business operational.  You may think of these plans as a documented strategy to save your business in the event of a major disaster like a flood or fire, and you wouldn’t be alone.

But the reality is that a Disaster Recovery plan is created to protect your infrastructure against any event that could cause a disruption, including technical glitches, system failures, power outages and even cyber-attacks or data theft.

These disruptions cost companies thousands – potentially hundreds of thousands or millions in property and assets damage, including business revenue loss and even a bigger loss at the end – damage to the company’s brand.
