IT departments are shifting to enterprise-wide integration as they continue to wrestle with the challenges of disparate technologies and the pressure to reduce costs. We can help address these challenges through specialized services developed to streamline operations and increase business performance.

Using proven methodologies and more than 25 years of experience, we ensure the delivery of an efficient, effective solution that properly aligns IT with your business requirements.
Optimizing your IT environment begins with a comprehensive understanding of the many assets – people, processes, and technologies – that span the entire IT infrastructure. Datalink assessment services provide holistic analysis, proactive planning, and actionable recommendations to validate and improve your approach to managing your IT infrastructure. Our assessment services include:

Migrating to newer technologies can advance operational efficiency, provide a competitive advantage, and improve your bottom line. However, it can also introduce risk and disruption, especially when the information infrastructure is widely deployed or extensively customized. We offer skilled migration services to reduce risks and manage the cost of ever-changing technology.
Moving data is inherently disruptive and one of IT’s biggest challenges. We have the experience and talent to successfully plan, manage, and implement data migrations in even the most complex environment. Using a holistic approach that incorporates people, processes, and technologies, we leverage multiple techniques – matching the best option to your business requirements – to transparently move data between heterogeneous systems while keeping servers online and applications running.
Our data migration capabilities include:
- NAS / SAN
- Post-merger and acquisition activities
- Vendor to vendor (different targets)
- Upgrade /refresh
- System virtualization
- Re-platform of O/S (vendor UNIX to Linux, or x86)
- Remote and local migrations
NetApp clustered Data ONTAP migration
Because clustered Data ONTAP requires a new approach to storage and IT architecture, the migration is more complex than a typical Data ONTAP upgrade. We can help ensure a smooth transition to clustered Data ONTAP so you can take advantage of enhanced storage efficiency, nonstop operations, and greater scalability. Our in-depth knowledge of NetApp technology and decades of data storage experience help you migrate successfully with minimal disruption to your business operations and no strain on your budget or resources.
Integration of disparate technologies and escalating pressures to reduce costs have shifted the focus of IT departments to enterprise-wide programs that address business needs. A cost-effective, scalable, and manageable IT infrastructure is the first step in advancing business goals through IT capabilities.
We offer specialized capabilities to maximize current financial and operational resources across any one or a combination of data center environments: physical, virtual, or cloud. Our expert infrastructure migration services address your business challenges with the skilled resources to guide you through the entire process, ensuring a seamless, trouble-free transition customized according to your business requirements.
Your business applications represent a significant investment and are a critical piece of your business. We work with you to develop an effective approach to application migration, so you can take advantage of ever-evolving technologies. More than just a software upgrade, an application migration is an opportunity to consider how you are using your tools as much as what tools you are using. It’s also a chance to improve service levels while moving to a new IT environment that mitigates current pains and addresses future needs.
Modernizing your application environment can improve efficiencies and responsiveness, plus give your business a competitive advantage. It can also better position your business to leverage new technologies like virtualization and cloud computing.
Our highly skilled team of application migration experts can help you cast off the constraints of technology and business agility – empowering your organization to grow and innovate.
The day-to-day management of data center infrastructure has become increasingly more complex with shared environments, cloud architectures, and continually emerging technologies.
