Data Centres

Many companies underestimate the challenges facing modern data centre infrastructures. One example of these challenges is the increased heat and power requirements associated with running blade servers - Space planning is another. To top these challenges, the integrity of an organisation's network and service environment, as well as uptime, is crucial for the survival of the organisation.
