Converged Datacentre

Rather than trying to retrofit and grow what we had, we decided to have Compugen redesign and rebuild our datacentre infrastructure properly from the ground up, based on their experience, leading products and industry best practices,

What sets a converged datacentre apart from the rest?

  • End-to-end virtualization. In a converged datacentre, servers, networks and storage devices all work together to bring business applications online quickly, which means your business can respond to rapid changes in demand.
  • Low maintenance. With a built-in touch-screen control panel, maintenance and troubleshooting are a breeze. Instead of replacing entire units, use the touch panel to identify problems, virtually swap out components and upgrade system files.
  • Flexibility. Converged architecture can be built around your existing datacentre infrastructure and dropped in to augment your existing systems. Or, it can be built to support specific business applications.
  • Density.  A converged system packs more of everything into a smaller package – processing, storage, networking capacity. This translates into a smaller footprint, less cooling and less power. You can fit many more servers into a much smaller space. It’s energy efficient and a great example of green computing.​

A virtualized environment gives you quicker time to market and better visibility of your storage processing power, but it also places a greater burden on the network infrastructure. In other words, the network has now become the new stress point. The 1GB Ethernet networks of the past – heating, cooling, cables, routers and switches – now cannot cope with the increased capacity, which is why many companies that move to a converged datacentre architecture also upgrade to a 10GB or even 100GB network to maintain peak performance and speed.

We have long-standing partnerships with the most important companies in technology – the established players and the game-changers who will make a difference to your business.
