Datacenter Services

Your business is moving faster than ever, putting more pressure on your data center and its critical capabilities. The agility and reliability of your current solutions and your ability to implement advanced capabilities like self-service, chargeback transactions, and resource sharing depend upon the underlying IT infrastructure and management systems supporting them. Datacenter Services is a portfolio of solutions from Microsoft and its partners that integrates technology, people, and processes to help transform the data center into a strategic and flexible business asset.

Your value

Based on methodologies and processes derived from over 25 years of working with the world’s largest enterprises to build and operate large-scale data centers, Microsoft Services can help you:

  • Centrally manage your IT infrastructure to make efficient use of hardware and IT resources, self-service capabilities, capacity planning, service-level management, and proactive systems monitoring

  • Drive down the cost of managing IT

  • Gain more business value from IT services

Our approach

Microsoft Services consultants and architects work with you to:

  • Assess business needs and review current application infrastructure and management solutions

  • Develop a detailed architecture best suited for an organization’s IT environment

  • Implement cloud and data center solutions

  • Validate the solution through testing and deploy it into a production environment

  • Provide ongoing training on the technology and solution to your IT staff throughout the project

Assess your data center environment and develop a strategic roadmap according to the Microsoft Infrastructure Optimization Model. This workshop approach, led by Microsoft Services consultants and architects, focuses on key data center considerations such as virtualization, management, identity, security, IT processes, and compliance.

Develop and implement private cloud infrastructures quickly while reducing both complexity and risk. This private cloud model provides the efficiency and agility of cloud computing, along with increased control and customization. Microsoft Services consultants and architects help you achieve this through dedicated private resources and by combining Microsoft software, consolidated guidance, and validated configurations with partner technology such as compute, network, and storage architectures.

Private cloud solution lowers costs and secures sensitive data

Israel’s Tax Authority launched a virtual environment with private cloud robust enough to handle month-end spikes in workloads, secure enough to centralize sensitive taxpayer data, and agile enough to reduce the time needed to create new development environments from three months to just a week.

Traffic maps for massive data centers

Large-scale data centers now host a large part of the world’s data and computation, which makes their design a crucial architectural challenge. Datacenter (DC) applications, unlike traditional workloads, are dominated by user patterns that only emerge in the large-scale. This creates the need for concise, accurate, and scalable analytical models that capture both their temporal and spatial features and can be used to create representative activity patterns.
