The gateway to opportunity

The data centre is the heart of your business: you can't afford it to skip a beat.

Meeting dynamic, shifting business needs demands an ability to adjust quickly, even automatically to the requirements of a specific application. Ideal can design your data centre to meet high-end needs like enterprise databases or a virtual desktop infrastructure. We invest heavily in ensuring that our engineers can architect bespoke, best-fit data centre solutions to meet all business needs. Just as importantly, first we spend the time to understand what your needs are.

How we can help

At the core of our data centre offering is Cisco's Unified Computing System: a revolutionary architecture delivering high-bandwidth, low-latency access to management, networking and storage resources. Architected as a single, virtual blade chassis, the UCS network provides a 'wire once' infrastructure in which bandwidth and I/O configuration can be managed dynamically at any time after the initial installation. 

It's a simplified architecture, in which a server's identity, configuration and connectivity are configured automatically - eliminating time-consuming and error-prone manual server provisioning. Moving to the simplified architecture could help deliver an increase in application performance of up to 50%, a cabling reduction of up to 78%, and power consumption reduced by up to 90%.
