Why SyCom for Private Cloud?
SyCom has a long history of building manageable Private Cloud, Public Cloud, and Hybrid Cloud solutions. SyCom’s strength lies in the fact that we are able to look at the data center holistically from the physical cabling to the applications that will run in the Private Cloud environment. Using our proprietary methodology, we will walk through a series of workshops to better understand the applications that will run in your Private Cloud environment. Through this discovery process, we will better understand how best to combine our tier one vendors to build a complete solution.
For SyCom, this will start at the physical layer of the private cloud environment, combining elements of power, cooling, redundancy, security and resiliency. From there, we begin to look at the core data network elements and whether or not our solution will be geographically distributed. We will then discuss storage, backup and recovery, and then virtualization. This sequence will complete with an application layer discussion to ensure all elements of the future environment are well understood. For many of today’s Private Cloud environments, this may include cloud automation tools to enhance self-service aspects of the solution as well as environment monitoring. Last, but certainly not least, we will discuss elements such as securing this new data center and its applications from today’s threats.
The key vendors that SyCom works with in these areas are:
- Peak 10
Additionally, aspects from other vendors such as FireEye, HP, Hitachi, and Dell may be included.
