Are you getting the performance from your network you deserve?
Networks can be both a cash cow to companies that optimize them or a tar pit of wasted time to companies that do not understand why things are “slow” or “unresponsive”.
Affirmed Systems is a managed services and Data center hosting firm that is the industry leader at analyzing network performance metrics and dash boarding out how your network is working.
Here are some of key areas our team will identify:
1. Internet access and topological availability - where are your services fast from? Where are they not fast from? Do you have users abroad that need to reach services hosted at 277 milliseconds away from them and get very little throughput? Are your offshore developers waiting too long for screen refreshes on Citrix, Microsoft RDS or other real-time desktop technologies? How fast and responsive are our internet circuits at baseline, busy and top hour periods? Where are our slow downs? Who receives and acts on bandwidth alerts within a time frame that is helpful to addressing risks to user’s performance?
2. How responsive and flexible is our converged network to real-time voip and video? Do we have the proper network equipment and configuration to host video conferences and voip conference calls that will look and sound great? Are our Polycom and Cisco network video based systems waiting behind emails or other non-realtime sensitive flows? How resilient is our converged network to single points of failure, that can cause our converged network to suffer downtime and sluggishness?
3. What applications are performing well and where can we improve? Affirmed Systems can quickly identify and help you improve overall bandwidth utilization and requirements from the application layer for local and cloud hosted applications. Are our users getting the best response time in-house or when working remotely? Do we have the “right” type of bandwidth available at each facility or Data center? May firms “buy into a well established name” Like ATT or Internap and do not realize that these firms have their own unique networks that work well in some areas and not so great at others.
4. What is my high availability score? How redundant and responsive is my network to single or multiple carrier issues? How fast does my network detect outages and self-heal around them? Do I need A CDN? BGP? High availability DNS? How well connected is my network, did my internal IT staff overlook anything? What could we gain by making changes? Affirmed Systems “knows before you go”, using our best practices proved in many industries, such as retail web site management, financial trading, service provider and data aggregation networks. On a scale of 1 to 10 we will present you with your “High Availability Report Card” in an easy to understand format - this will make sure all IT stake holders are up to speed and able to present to senior management areas where the Company should invest it’s resources to improve.
