asi's network services deliver intelligent, end-to-end network infrastructures that support business objectives and manage IT investments.
Application-driven, service-oriented architectures (SOA) and virtualization have banished the client-server model from the data center. Cloud computing, too, makes heavy use of server virtualization, which reshapes data center traffic flows and increases bandwidth demands at the server edge. By 2014, network planners should expect more than 80 percent of traffic in the data center's local area network (LAN) to be between servers.
These efforts at flexibility can be hampered by legacy data center networks. They cannot provide high enough bandwidth and low enough latency between server connections to support highly mobile virtual workloads.
As business volumes rise, traffic levels are exploding. Virtualization has taken root across businesses of all sizes. Today, roughly 20 percent of workloads are virtualized, and Gartner expects that this will hit 50 percent by year-end 2012, and continue to grow beyond this level.Traffic within the server rack is expected to grow by 25 times. Saturated in technology at home, business workers have quickly acclimated to a rich-media experience and are using video and interactive collaboration tools.
To address these and other concerns, ASI's Network Services deliver intelligent, end-to-end network infrastructures that allow organizations – regardless of their size – to support business objectives and manage IT investments. Our expert services combine the entire lifecycle of our clients’ extensible local and wide area network and are designed to maximize availability, performance, and agility.
Through alliances with the leaders in the industry such as HP and its FlexNetwork Architecture which delivers five primary benefits: an open and standards-based solution with scalability on three dimensions: security, agility, and consistency, we leverage emerging advances in wireless, IP convergence, security, and intelligent networking to deliver best-of-breed solutions.
We conduct comprehensive network assessments (analyze existing networks, protocols, wired and wireless configurations, and develop blueprints, etc.) to identify performance, interoperability and connectivity requirements and ensure ease of use. We provide implementation planning, detailed logical and physical network design, rapid deployment and network rollouts, product installation and customization and operational services for network and cabling infrastructures. We help businesses securely converge data, enable intelligent network infrastructures; and deploy mobility solutions by exploiting technologies such as virtual private networking (VPN), fiber optic networking, content delivery networks, storage networking, and wireless.
The cornerstone of our strategy is to:
- Enable and protect our client's data networks by providing optimal and highly available infrastructure
- Provide a "business-centric" approach and the ability to build solutions aligned with diverse sets of business requirement
- Deliver expertise and certifications on "best-in-class” technologies
- Ensure governmental compliance and core competencies which span from professional services to outsourcing management
