Composable Infrastructure Built & Delivered

The PEAK Team recently completed an exciting Composable Infrastructure project, where we aggregated, updated and integrated over 60,000 components and parts into 75 racks!  This was a high-profile client, and we shipped this fully customized HPC solution to 2 locations.

Traditional Infrastucture

PEAK’s history is steeped in 3-tier (multi-tier) data center design. This design leverages core, aggregation and access layers (all of which can scale independently) providing the greatest level of flexibility, but potentially at the highest cost when compared to modern core/edge and spine/leaf designs.

Today, we focus on multi-tier data centers with an eye toward risk mitigation for environments that still require air-gapped, security-focused environments and where node to node traffic must be isolated to ensure potential workloads do not have a negative effect on other data center applications and workloads.

Converged Infrastucture

PEAK has had phenomenal success with Converged Infrastructures or “CI’s”. Now in their 3rd or 4th major releases, CI’s are very mature technologies from a compute, network and storage perspective combined with the management tools to leverage these assets as a cost-effective IT consumption model. CI’s can start very small and scale into secured multi-tenant environments for a wide variety of use cases. Cloud management platforms “CMP’s” are a key component in ensuring that an organization can best leverage a CI platform and its capabilities.

CI’s preserve the ability for the client to scale the compute, network and storage artifacts independently as application needs dictate, while maintaining and adhering to best practices such that operational standards and support can be maintained.

We add our own intellectual capital to the blueprints and validated designs from industry leading OEM’s such as Cisco and NetApp, to ensure that project implementation and application rollouts can be coordinated on CI infrastructures, which all go to mitigate risk for IT and business stakeholders alike to ensure project timeliness and business agility.

Hyper Converged Infrastucture

The PEAK team is fluent in several flavors of Hyper Converged Infrastructures “HCI’s”. HCI’s are quickly advancing to be the next generation of compute, network and storage solutions in an all-in-one package for the next generation of data centers. Industry leaders such as Nutanix, VMware, Cisco & NetApp all have their own specific flavor and implementation of ‘HCI’, each being subtly different and having their own pro’s and con’s. We are experts at helping you navigate which alternative is best for you.

Most HCI is now in the 2nd or 3rd generation and as a result the issues of scale have been addressed along with independence of that scale, meaning storage heavy nodes and compute only nodes can be added to HCI infrastructures and solutions based on application needs.

Hybrid Infrastucture

Knowing that most organizations have some workloads that leverage a hybrid model from an IT consumption perspective, PEAK’s team understands that the most common use cases for Hybrid involve backup and archive of data from on premise to cloud-based S3 targets which can be typically consumed at a fraction of the cost of a fully burdened asset on premise. Other common use cases now involve virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), which can be leveraged as IaaS with the backend higher performing assets remaining on premises; therefore, operating in a hybrid cloud consumption model.

Let us help you with a full TCO analysis when reviewing where and when applications should reside and originate. Most hybrid IT models have some significant burden when considering ingress/egress charges which are typically based on bandwidth usage.

Cloud Infrastucture

Public Cloud consumption models for many different application workloads are now extremely common. The public cloud provides organizations with the agility to scale and add application workloads almost instantly. Additionally, Cloud Management Platforms ‘CMPs’ provide users with the same or similar user experiences to those previously only found on-premises.

Multi-Cloud Infrastucture

Clients today are insisting on multi-cloud solutions and capabilities such that their application portfolios and/or data from a sovereignty perspective is not locked into a single cloud provider and solution.

Cloud based IT consumption models and offerings across common hyperscalers deliberately look and feel similar from a capabilities and pricing perspective and as a result, many clients are investing in a strategy that involves multi-cloud to ensure competitive edge is maintained and furthermore to ensure redundancy is built into their offerings where needed.

Composable Infrastucture

Composable infrastructure treats compute, storage, and network devices as pools of resources that can be provisioned as needed, depending on what different workloads require for optimum performance. This emerging architecture delivers the ability to optimize IT resources with superior business agility.

Composable Infrastructure leverages industry-standard data center components to deliver a flexible, scalable architecture built from pools of disaggregated resources. Compute, networking, storage, GPU, FPGA, and memory devices are interconnected over intelligent fabrics to deliver dynamically-configurable bare-metal servers, perfectly sized, with the exact physical resources required by each deployed application.

Data Center Your Way

Delivering infrastructure and applications efficiently, securely and within budget has never been more complex. User expectations, business priorities, industry regulations and compliance requirements are ever changing and often create a target that simply does not stand still. For the data center this translates to a mandate of change.

No Limits

The modern data center is no longer limited to what is behind the glass wall. The modern data center is composed of traditional, colocation, hybrid, cloud and multi-cloud models that come together to create a single heterogeneous architecture.

Colocation

Many organizations are evaluating colocation as a path to move away from data center ownership and take the first step to the cloud. We understand that colocation is not just renting space in a secure building that provides cooling, power, bandwidth, compute and storage. We have assembled a Colocation Strike Force to help our clients identify and select the right colocation partner. Our Team will guide you through all facets of the colocation decision including geography, connectivity, scalability, service performance, security, finance, solutions architecture, analytics and reporting, value-added services and more. We work diligently to maintain relationships with industry-leading colocation centers throughout North America and across the globe to provide you with a vetted list of potential colocation partners.

Relocation

We provide comprehensive consultative and hands-on professional services designed to support your move from one physical location to a new physical location. In essence, it’s the easy button for a critical organizational event. Relocating a data center can be daunting. It requires significant planning, cross-functional coordination, an immense amount of communication, event walk-throughs and a solid back-up plan! The bottom-line is that PEAK has you covered. We take care of it all, including relocation of physical IT assets, planning services, data protection, discontinuance, un-racking, packing, transportation, and re-installation activities. Our specialists will also ensure all manufacturer maintenance eligibility requirements are updated to ensure you move forward in good standing.
