IT Site Survey Service
(Architecture & Infrastructure - Storage & Data Protection)
PTS Data Center Storage Site Survey provides ITS Managers with an
accurate site survey of their existing storage infrastructure, as well as a validation of the
information gathered in the Needs Analysis phase. PTS will field survey the existing conditions
of your data storage infrastructure and capture configuration, utilization, and virtualization
data for further analysis.
The intent of this service is to establish a baseline of the existing conditions, which becomes
the starting point for creating a Technology Roadmap.
PTS' Storage Site Survey provides data center operators and IT managers with a clear understanding of the data storage and protection topology and performance baseline for their IT operations.
During the Storage Site Survey, PTS will validate if design standards are being met and t
hat a "Best Practices" design methodology has been used.
PTS' Solutions Architects will work with the appropriate client stakeholders to survey
the physical server infrastructure and will review all existing diagrams and technical
documentation available. As a result of the survey, PTS will create or update diagrams
to document the current state.
PTS' site survey services serve as the ‘findings, phase in the progression of the data center project process.
