Application and Database performance is key to a successful business. Responsiveness in this area is what allows businesses to run efficiently and provide headroom for growth. Many options have risen to this challenge yet few have been able to deliver true value and a respectable return on investment.
One of the greatest challenges in growing data centers is the complexity of managing multiple systems. An unmanaged environment can quickly lead to issues such as the inability to report, failed backups and poor resource utilisation. In most cases, these issues lead to loss of data and drive up costs.
Information Security or Network Security refers to any activities designed to protect your network or information. Specifically, these activities protect the usability, reliability, integrity, and safety of your network and data. Effective network & information security targets a variety of threats and stops them from entering or spreading on your network.
Virtualization software solves the problem by enabling several operating systems and applications to run on one physical server or “host.” Each self-contained virtual machine (VM) is isolated from the others, and uses as much of the host’s computing resources as it requires. Adopting virtualization means that an organisation can reap the benefit of utilising every single physical ‘host’ to its maximum capacity thus reducing hardware requirement and capital expenditure

A network, in computing, is a group of two or more devices that can communicate. In practice, a network is comprised of a number of different computer systems connected by physical and/or wireless connections. The scale can range from a single PC sharing out basic peripherals to massive data centers located around the World, to the Internet itself. Regardless of scope, all networks allow computers and/or individuals to share information and resources.
As throughput increases and servers become powerful enough to drive enormous workloads a need to provide capable storage becomes evident. With the rapid expansion and consolidation of data, storage vendors are constantly developing new technology to keep up. As it is mostly perceived to provide somewhere data is kept, storage performance should not be overlooked. A properly sized and managed storage solution can be the answer to many IT challenges faced today
The information age has been driven by the ability to store, manipulate and analyse data – all made possible by the different flavours and styles of the database. As we capture more data of varying types and the way in which we store and consume this data shifts we are now dealing with many different technologies. Some examples include the classic relational database, Object Orientated databases and Key Value Stores. The types and sources of data is ever growing and this remains a real business challenge, where true business value and competitive advantage can be derived with the right toolset.
Cloud computing is viewed as one of the most significant shifts in the modern day IT landscape, and it is having an enormous impact on the enterprise market. It has become a common enterprise theme to focus on an infrastructure, platform and application cloud model, these are commonly known as IaaS, PaaS and SaaS respectively. If deployed and managed correctly, businesses can benefit immensely by moving from a traditional enterprise IT infrastructure model, to a Cloud based service.
Big Data has become an increasingly important component of enterprise IT infrastructure, and can offer enormous benefit and value to those who are able to examine and understand the data which is collected. Big Data is often defined as a combination of large volumes of traditional data, machine-generated data and social data which is typically gathered at high velocity. The variety of the data is also an important aspect, as growth in social and mobile technology means that many forms of data, such as behavioral and geospatial information, has to be collated and analysed together with traditional structured data. Nextgen’s goal is to ensure that we offer “best of breed” solutions from a number of Vendors and this takes the complexity out of the multi-faceted approach to Big Data.
