As an IT professional or data center manager, you are faced with challenges day in and day out, ranging from maintaining availability to maximizing server capacity, but few things stand out as much as the need to save time, money and space.
You are challenged with deploying and managing new technology services, including the protection of compute-intensive applications, managing complex and heterogeneous environments and implementing new business incentives, as well as trying to reduce costs across the data center.
When you think about how much space, cooling and power are consumed each day in your datacenter, the numbers can be staggering. While your focus is to reduce usage, it's sometimes difficult to pinpoint the best methods for saving on power and space. Fortunately, the right servers can address these concerns, providing the peace of mind to ensure uptime, availability, efficiency and productivity.
The Servers Direct family of servers provides the solution for allocating space, managing power usage, reducing operating costs and increasing scalability.
Supermicro 1U Rackmount Server (SDR-1028R-WC1R) 2x Intel E5-2600 v3 processors, 1TB DDR4 and 10x 2.5” hot swap bays
Supermicro 2U Rackmount Server (SDR-X107) 1x Intel E3-1200 v3/v4 processor, 32GB DDR3 and 8x 3.5” hot-swap bays
Supermicro 4U Rackmount Server (SDR-F628R3-R72B+) 2x Intel E5-2600 v3 processors, 1TB DDR4 and 6+2 3.5” hot-swap bays
Intel 2U Rackmount Server (SDR-2P16D-001) 2x Intel E5-2600 vs processors, 1TB DDR4 and 16x 2.5” hot-swap bays
By leveraging various technologies and processes across such an infrastructure, you can better protect information and applications, enhance datacenter and service levels, improve storage and server utilization, manage physical and virtual environments, and more importantly, reduce capital and operational costs.
Consider the following:
Storage management: tools automate daily and repetitive storage tasks, such as RAID reconfiguration, defragmentation, file system resizing and volume resizing. Plus, centralized storage management, online configuration and administration, dynamic storage tiering, dynamic multipathing, data migration and local/remote replication enable organizations to reduce operational and deployment costs across the datacenter.
High availability: clustering tools streamline efficiency by monitoring the status of applications, automatically moving them to another server in the event of failure. From shutdown to reboot to connecting the server to appropriate storage devices, high availability allows you to resume normal operations without costly downtime.
Disaster recovery: should disaster recovery be necessary, clustering tools can be combined with replication technologies to automate the process of replication management without the need for complicated manual recovery procedures.
As you look to maximize IT productivity and efficiency while saving on time, money and space, consider Servers Direct as your primary source the right server solutions.
