IT Infrastructure optimisation is more important and more difficult than ever. Add an IT initiative like a data centre move, server and storage consolidation, virtualisation or simple strategic planning into the mix and a detailed understanding of your infrastructure becomes even more crucial.
Data centre discovery tools used by our team are well known throughout the industry and will pass your security review as they are agent-free and do not access your sensitive and confidential information. The output delivers information simply, accurately and right when you need it. These offerings will save you time and money, and take the risk out of your IT infrastructure initiatives.
