  Storage Assessment

Storage assessment is a comprehensive review of overall storage infrastructure to keep pace with storage growth. The objective of this service is to reduce the growing storage cost by unearthing hidden costs and also access the gap between on-premises and cloud storage. The following aspects will be looked into as part of this service:

  • Storage architecture review including the cloud storage requirements
  • Storage configuration review
  • Analysis of structured and unstructured data
  • Analysis of RAID layout
  • IOPS requirement of applications (Application to storage)
  • User to storage analysis
  • Accessing the cloud storage workloads
  • Accessing and Optimizing storage replications
  • File level analysis of storage resulting in potential reclaim of storage
  • Recommendation for tiered storage, RAID relay-out, re-architect will be provided

  Backup Assessment

The primary objective of this service is to assess the existing backup and recovery environment to ensure compliance, data integrity and simplified recovery. The assessment takes into account the on-premise and cloud workloads and Data Following aspects and provides recommendation to improve operational efficiency which includes:

  • Backup technology and architecture review
  • Accessing the backup infrastructure for private, public and hybrid cloud requirements
  • Backup window or service levels for both on-premise or in the cloud
  • Media management
  • Process for Monitoring
  • Process for recovery checks to ensure critical data is recoverable
  • Tape vaulting and cloning
  • Evaluation of disk/cloud based backup

  High Availability and HPC Assessment

This service is aimed at customers who are looking to Assess and implement High availability Services for their critical applications and service level agreements that match the business requirements. Yashasvi consultants have proven methodology and expertise in assessment and implementing High Availability services from various vendors like Microsoft, Veritas, Redhat, Oracle, Visionsolutions, and High Performance Computing, like:

  • Analysis of the business contexts and Drivers for availability
  • Demonstration of high availability methods, which include the application features
  • Analysis of high availability across all infrastructure verticals like server, network, Backup, etc
  • Analysis of current practices for disaster recovery and backup and recovery
  • Analysis of cloud service availability
  • Analysis of the workloads and performance

  Virtualization Assessment

The objective of this service is to architect/implement the virtualization services. Compute Virtualization has disrupted the traditional “one server per application” approach. The emergence of public cloud infrastructure has led to the evolution of virtualization where its power has extended to software-defined storage and software-defined networking.

  • Server virtualization Assessment
  • Desktop Virtualization Assessment
  • Data Centre Virtualization Assessment

  Data Migration

This service offering provides significant customer value by engaging experienced Yashasvi professionals to develop a “best-practice” based migration strategy for open systems, focused on mitigating business, technical, and operational risks associated with planning and conducting storage and virtual load migrations.

This service takes into consideration the following aspects:

  • Migration from Direct attached storage to consolidated storage (NAS/SAN)
  • Any SAN storage device to Any SAN storage device (Heterogeneous environment)
  • NAS to SAN migration (and vice versa)
  • Migration/replication to cloud (and vice versa)
  • Migration of virtual loads across the platforms including hybrid and public cloud
  • Converting and migrating virtual loads between different virtual infrastructure
  • Vendor-independent recommendations for flexibility and choice

Minimize expensive downtime by keeping applications available during your migration.
