According to their needs, AiNET offers its data center customers the industry’s broadest range of Professional Services. From an occasion call-out for remote hands support, to full Engineering and Operations outsourcing, AiNET’s skilled staff is available 24×7 to meet your needs.
Maintaining a staff of skilled technical professionals to respond to unpredictable events – and even predictable ones – at your data center on a 24x7x365 basis is a very costly commitment. The cost of having to respond almost immediately at any time is high because of the lack of scale and efficiency at hand. This is not a situation to do; it’s a situation to manage getting done. Manage it with a provider who can respond immediately at any time, with great cost-effectiveness.
Also, as needed, pertinent AiNET personnel can sign Non-Disclosure Agreements for your protection, and AiNET can provide personnel with clearances as required.
The Basics: Skilled, Efficient, Reliable and Cost-Effective Remote and Smart Hands
Maybe your needs for help at the data center are only 2, 15 or 40 hours during a month – let AiNET take the guesswork out of which particular hours. With network and system admin personnel at the data center on a 24×7 basis, AiNET can provide Remote and Smart Hands services.
If you need to schedule an installation, whether your personnel come in to do it, or you ask us to, you can still have your equipment shipped ahead of time to our facility.
Your organization’s infrastructure is comprised of hardware and software products from a variety of vendors, each with different warranty, support and maintenance requirements. The continual cycle of tracking equipment and software licenses, and managing their corresponding contracts, is time consuming and costly. Time spent auditing assets and tracking contracts is time lost on your initiatives and projects.
AiNET excels at ensuring that your IT assets, service plans and service providers complement each other, freeing you and your staff to concentrate on higher-value activities.
AiNET provides Datacenter Support in a number of areas:
Remote Monitoring and Profiling
AiNET’s Monitoring & Profiling Service (AMPS) helps clients maximize systems uptime through the advanced notification of potential issues and faster problem resolution when failures occur – by proactively monitoring their infrastructure and application environment 24×7, up to 1500 times daily. AMPS provides:
- Performance Monitoring - Averting Potential Issues: By setting capacity parameters and performance thresholds, AiNET identifies potential signs of weakness such as bottlenecks, overburdened services or hardware anomalies, and immediately alerts the client – allowing potential problems to be averted before they become critical or impact the user.
- Real-Time Hardware Fault Monitoring - Expediting the Problem Resolution Process: In the event of a hard system failure, AiNET identifies the failure in real-time, notifies the client and expedites the remediation process – whether using AiNET’s Professional Services or the client’s internal IT staff to resolve the issue.
- Reporting & Trend Analysis - Optimizing Utilization & Performance: Through enhanced reporting and analysis, and access to and periodic reviews with AiNET’s senior engineers, AiNET’s infrastructure monitoring service enables clients to better manage their infrastructure and optimize systems utilization and performance.
AMPS supports a wide variety of infrastructure and application platforms including:
- Data Center Infrastructure: such as Sun, HP, IBM, Dell, EMC server and storage systems
- Security Infrastructure: such as Check Point, Blue Coat, Infoblox
- Network Infrastructure: such as Cisco, Extreme Networks, Nortel
