Rahi Systems Teams Up With Nlyte To Expand DCIM Expertise In Europe

Fremont, Calif. — December 20, 2017 — Rahi Systems announced today its partnership with Nlyte Software, a software company focused on the management and optimisation of infrastructure in data centres and colocation facilities.

The Europe based Rahi Systems team has achieved technical and commercial accreditation as part of the European Nlyte Partner Network. Rahi System’s skilled data centre specialists will act as an extension of the Nlyte Software’s brand. Rahi System’s mission is to make its customers more successful through the adoption of the best technology for incorporation into data centres. With Nlyte Software, Rahi Systems adds a proven enterprise data centre infrastructure management solution (DCIM) offering to its portfolio.

Rahi Systems’ customers will be able to plan their future growth with greater efficiency based on informed decisions, using Nlyte Software’s solution. These customers tend to have heterogeneous and complex IT estates and are in need of a complete solution that can scale with their business.

All Rahi Systems’ solutions are built upon the same core tenets: maximised availability, enhanced security, increased efficiency and minimised costs. Its experts are industry veterans who know the challenges that customers face and how data centres can become more efficient by deploying a solution such as Nlyte Software’s.

Marcus Doran, Vice President of Sales & General Manager, Rahi Systems Europe, explained: “The data centre market is undergoing real change. Managers are battling challenges from complexity, cost, and not being able to scale at the pace required. Those who have not embraced DCIM to optimise their infrastructure assets are having to play catch-up to faster operators who are creating more efficient and effective colocation facilities and private data centres. Nlyte’s solutions and services complement our infrastructure management portfolio for data centre solutions.”

Moshe Benjo, Nlyte Software Vice President, Head of Sales, EMEA, said: “Nlyte offers data centre managers the tools to analyse and optimise their infrastructure assets. A proper understanding of the workings of assets operating in the data center is the first step to gaining control of what can become a sprawl as investments grow. Rahi Systems has deep expertise in data centre operations to reverse this trend.”

How To Future-Proof Your Data Center With Fiber Connectivity

How To Future-Proof Your Data Center With Fiber Connectivity

Staying connected is the current way of life. Bandwidth boundaries are blurring and with that,  data centers are rapidly changing. Data centers have come a long way from offering basic storage services, to providing complete connectivity, storage and disaster recovery functions that are vital for most businesses. Fiber connectivity will gain huge importance in the future as software developers and different applications continue to be dependent on that backbone for different uses of the internet.

Copper connectivity has its advantages. But fiber optic cable sends data faster than copper cable as it does this through pulses of light, rather than electrical impulses. Another advantage of the fiber optic technology is that while copper cable lasts 60 to 70 years, fiber optics have almost an infinite lifespan.

Since fiber optic cabling uses different wavelengths of light to transmit data, there are a myriad bandwidths to play with in fiber. You can easily migrate from 10G to 40G or even 100G with ease, unlike in a copper cable infrastructure. Migration to optical fiber 10G to higher gigabit Ethernet environments brings exciting opportunities and also some challenges to the data center operators.

Data center fiber infrastructure advancements have evolved rapidly from 10G to 40G to 100G, in the past few years. But now, the industry is already abuzz with talks of a 400G broadband capacity. It will be here sooner than you think, given the rate at which the world is hungry for faster and more data.

Remember the adage, ‘Adapt or perish?’ It is no longer enough for data centers to just rent a data service facility from a service provider which uses the commonly shared infrastructure. With growing demands on data consumption, building a scalable data center is not just smart but absolutely necessary.

Rahi Systems has the technical know-how, domain knowledge and on-ground expertise to help you transition from a traditional infrastructure model to a futureproof scalable data center environment. We can do this within an optimal cost and time. Check out our Connectivity video to learn more: WATCH NOW

Rahi’s Modular Patch Panels allow you the flexibility to easily migrate from 10GB to 40GB or 100GB and vice versa. You are not boxed into a certain port interface.  Rahi’s Base 8-MTP cable allows you to swap out different cassettes without changing the backbone cable infrastructure. Imagine the convenience when you want to scale from 10Gb to 40GB or 100GB, all you have to do is swap the 10GB cassettes with 40GB or 100GB.

Rahi’s structured cabling is futureproof. When we customize Rahi’s Modular Patch Panels for you, there is enough room for growth to accommodate your evolving connectivity needs. Various slots in the Modular Patch Panel system host the cassettes for 10Gb, 40Gb or 100Gb and patch cables connect into ports. This clearly saves you time, money and resources while optimizing valuable U-space real estate.

Why Rahi Systems’ Modular Patch Panels?

  • Smart: Modular cassettes have pre-installed MTP cables that form the backbone of the infrastructure
  • Versatile: Modular cassettes are interchangeable from 10Gb to 40Gb to 100GB and vice versa.
  • Flexible: Pay as you grow plan works well with your changing business needs
  • Replaceable: Easy to swap out
  • Cost-effective: Scale without rebuilding the entire unit for migration
  • Consistent and Adaptable: Absolutely no compromise on performance.
  • Futureproof: Modular Patch Panels are scalable. Can easily migrate from 10Gb to 40Gb to 100Gb and more.

We provide invaluable information on optimizing U-space, reclaiming rack space and chalking out a roadmap on how the transition will work with mission-critical devices, so that you can make an informed decision.

A successful migration will save your organization significant time, labor and costs, since your network will be running at peak performance.

Leasing Vs Buying IT Equipment: What Weighs Well?

Leasing Vs Buying IT Equipment: What Weighs Well?

The days of owning all the IT products and services within a company, are obsolete. With newer technologies edging out old ones, IT equipment has a rapidly diminishing shelf life. But do without them, you cannot. And so, there is a growing appetite for leasing IT equipment for your business needs. The goal is much less reinventing the wheel than, optimizing IT budgets and performance. Here are some factors that sway the balance in favor of leasing IT equipment for a majority of businesses:

Budget: It’s not just about having the newest IT equipment when you’re leasing. Isn’t it much easier to ask your CEO for $5,000 a month for the next 36 months or so, rather than a $10M upfront cost for your data center equipment? The demand for procuring more flexible data center solutions is escalating. Leasing data center technology enables businesses to stay within budget, and can help stretch the dollar to invest in IT equipment you need when you need it. Leasing lets your cash reserves be put towards other strategic business growth, instead of locking it into a high capital cost.

Access to latest IT technology: Leasing data center equipment gives you the access to the latest IT equipment for your business. There is no need to wait for next year’s budget to get the equipment you need. Say for example, there’s a lab testing new products. Leasing will give it the access to the latest/ best IT equipment to optimize results, within its budget.

Hybrid Data Centers: The current data centers landscape has hardware vendors competing with cloud vendors. It’s not apples to apples anymore. As you know, cloud storage can be prohibitively expensive. Companies are figuring out what permutation and combination of cloud storage and in-house, works best for their business needs. When you want to do a bit of both and go hybrid, it doesn’t make sense if you are spending an exorbitant amount on in-house data center equipment. Leasing can be that golden balance. Replacing cloud cost with leasing cost can be really lucrative.

Scalability: Based on the type of lease, a business can scale up or reduce its storage and IT capacity. It also circumvents the depreciation for servers and storage equipment.  Leasing allows IT flexibility in a business through a budget-friendly plan.

Care & Handling: Leasing IT equipment puts the onus on a business to follow best practices in the care and handling of the equipment. Maintenance costs of the data center equipment could also be baked into the lease. The leasing company will take the responsibility of end-of-life disposal from the user and enable reuse, recycling or environmentally friendly disposal.

There is definitely a marked shift to gain access rather than own data center equipment. CTOs and IT procurement managers are sourcing flexible finance options and leasing solutions for hardware, software, consultancy, project management and training, to help them phase into a multi-year or multi-site implementation. There is a multitude of knowledgeable people to chart the next course of the data center world, that spurs newer products and services.
