IT Site Survey Service (Architecture & Infrastructure – Storage & Data Protection)

By:

btn_contactPTS 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.
