Comprehensive Data Center Surveys and Application Assessments

NES is highly skilled at providing cost-effective and complete surveys of IT assets based on customer needs. From asset identification and documentation to full-bore capabilities assessments, NES can provide an assessment solution that meets your needs. Some of our service offerings include:

All aspects of data center design are assessed and documented. Our comprehensive assessment covers all facets of data center design, including:

  • Power: cable tray runs
  • HVAC: cooling air flow, hot/cold aisle containment systems, hot spots
  • Fire suppression
  • Tile load ratings
  • Physical security and physical penetration vulnerabilities
  • Battery backup and generator capacity analysis and sizing

EXHAUSTIVE CHECKLISTS capture even small data center design elements, including dust mats and positive air pressurization, to minimize contaminants entering the facility.

We’ll also review installation code compliance using Registered Communications Distribution Designer (RCDD) personnel. Data center diagrams and layouts can be produced in a number of standardized formats.

We’ll capture your functional and operational requirements and ensure your facility has head room for expansion.

Application Virtualization and Re-engineering
NES’ virtualization experts work closely with application and data center owners to fully understand application consolidation and re-engineering goals. Virtualization performance, virtual infrastructure management and application operational support requirements are just a few of the aspects NES addresses as part of the re-engineering effort.

Application Migration
Twenty years ago, application migration may have meant putting tapes in the back seat and driving them to the destination environment in hopes of performing a restore of the data at the new data center. Today, NES provides a full-scope solution for application migration, including pre- and post-validation testing, service interruption notifications and integration of requisite data center services into the application. NES also has many solutions for reliably and securely moving your application and content to a new location, all without tapes in your back seat.

Data Center Consolidation Governance
Data Center consolidations at the Agency level can involve hundreds of data centers and thousands of applications being affected. NES provides robust and reliable Data Center Governance capabilities to ensure all aspects are tracked and managed effectively. NES leverages a proven ITIL-based framework to ensure application consolidation and re-engineering efforts are performed consistently and with customer mission always at the forefront.

We strategize to save our customer’s money both now and in the future.
