PEAK has further developed a validated design called the PEAK Converged Core that allows for expedited delivery of services, ease of scalability, secure application environments, infrastructure operationalization and predictable performance characteristics.

The PEAK Converged Core is based on Cisco & NetApp FlexPod design and is a complete multi-application delivery platform.

PEAK EPIC on IBM Power

 

PEAK Resources has a proven track record of designing, implementing and optimizing IBM Power Systems specifically for EPIC environments. PEAK has many clients with different needs in the EHR space and we have created flexible, reliable and scalable solutions based on IBM Power offerings to meet these needs over the past decade and more. These solutions encompass the latest IBM Power 9 offerings coupled with the best Flash storage technologies from our partner OEM’s.

PEAK takes EPIC EHR beyond the production and DR environments to offer unique solutions in the backup, archive, security and compliance space to further solidify customers’ success with this suite of business-critical applications.

PEAK Converged SCADA

 

Welcome to a purpose-built, enhanced converged data center solution for SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition systems). This incredibly powerful solution is made for organizations in the utility, oil and gas, and manufacturing industries who are looking for state-of-the-art converged data center architecture.

Taken alone, SCADA systems put controls in place to monitor, collect key data, and automate systems to act on the data returned. This allows for automated decision-making in real-time by running algorithms based on the data received. SCADA can orchestrate adjustments to self-heal any disruption issues. Given that the information is received in real-time, any issues can be acted on, fixed or secured immediately. This quick action aids in improving and securing service to utility customers.

PEAK Converged SCADA is based on the Cisco & NetApp FlexPod design, and builds on the capabilities of SCADA by integrating and incorporating network, embedded management and Cisco UCS servers with flash storage solutions from NetApp.

PEAK has over 20 combined years of direct solutions experience with Converged Infrastructures ranging from SAP based solutions through International multi-pod private cloud implementations. Solution Architects will work with your team to provide a clear, concise implementation plan that will cover weeks, not months.

Integration

PEAK will receive and assemble the entire structure in its custom integration lab in Denver. All components will be racked, cabled, upgraded to the required firmware levels, configured, and fully tested. This will verify all hardware is fully functional and minimal data center floor time will be required. We will also customize the implementation to meet your data center specifications as well as asset tagging and inventory processes.

Implementation

PEAK will provide engineers to complete onsite implementation within the data center, working closely with your staff to integrate the Rack, Power and Network interfacing to meet project requirements and follow all established policies. Once complete, the entire implementation is documented with all configurations, addressing and best practice information.

HCI Selection Services

Hyper Converged Infrastructure ‘HCI’ offerings are now available from no fewer than five different OEM’s.  PEAK Resources has evaluated and partnered with the industry leading offerings and we are available to advise clients on the best HCI solution based on your unique needs and application workloads.  This is not a ‘one size fits all’ solution and it’s quickly becoming a key transformational piece of technology that is enabling clients to evolve into their own digital transformation.

Our specialists will also ensure all manufacturer maintenance eligibility requirements are updated to ensure you move forward in good standing.

Technologies

APPLICATION/WAN ACCELERATION



IT organizations increasingly and consistently have to deal with effectively scaling their networks beyond their traditional capabilities. Application/WAN acceleration comes into the picture to provide high performance remote data access, minimize bandwidth consumption, and alleviate latency increases.

 

BUSINESS CONTINUITY



Business continuity includes strategy, planning and tactics to ensure that an organization’s mission critical business functions will either continue to operate despite serious incidents / disasters that might otherwise have interrupted them, or will be recovered to an operational state within a reasonably short period. Key elements include: resiliency, recovery and contingency.

DATA PROTECTION



Data protection is the process of safeguarding important information from corruption, compromise or loss. As businesses are increasingly dependent on data in the era of digital transformation, it becomes all the more important to have the correct backup and storage protocols in place in addition to ongoing security measures.

HYPER-CONVERGED DATA CENTER (HCI)



There has been explosive growth of multiple Storage Area Network (SAN) technologies in recent years, and for good reason. Hybrid and All Flash SANs are finding themselves at the forefront of the growth. These SAN’s hardware and software are built from the ground up to overcome traditional SAN technology shortfalls. Hybrid and All Flash SANs are built with flexible scaling of performance and capacity, ease of use, smooth scalability, and incorporated data protections in mind.

BACKUP & RECOVERY


Backup is the routine copying of data to ensure its protection in the event of data loss through accidental deletion, equipment failure, or some other mishap. As more and more data is created and stored for longer periods of time, backup costs and the “backup window” (the time allocated to complete a backup operation) can increase to unmanageable levels. The goal of a Backup and Restore solution is to enable you to strengthen your data protection, streamline backup and recovery, and meet a wide range of service levels, even for the largest data volumes.

COMPUTE



As enterprise computing systems increase in scale, they also increase in complexity. And as complexity increases, so does the expense of deployment and ongoing management. A business can address these growing challenges by streamlining data center compute resources, scaling service delivery, and radically reducing the number of devices that require setup, management, power/cooling, and cabling.

HYPER-CONVERGED DATA CENTER (HCI)



In an almost natural evolution of data center systems, hyperconverged solutions have grown to provide a single, fully integrated stack that includes: compute, storage, virtualization and networking. Its scale-out capabilities show benefits such as lower costs, predictable scalability, centralized management, and a smaller footprint.

VIRTUALIZATION: INFRASTRUCTURE



Infrastructure Virtualization is the basis for the transformation of the data center into a service-oriented infrastructure and a key enabler for automation and lights-out operations. By virtualizing data center infrastructure and decoupling applications and data from the physical resources they run on, IT can deliver and maintain data center services more efficiently, resiliently, and dynamically.

BIG DATA


Large collections of data can sometimes scale at a faster pace than traditional data processing can handle. Big data intends to work on parallel software running on tens of hundreds of compute nodes to process large amounts of data. Big data intends to uncover valuable and normally hidden information from data sets that would otherwise be concealed.

CONVERGED INFRASTRUCTURE (CI)



Converged Infrastructures (CI) are pre-engineered and validated architectures designed to provide highly available core platforms upon which to run applications. CI’s are the foundation upon which high-level aspects of application performance and availability are built. Internal networking, compute and storage resources are assembled in order to provide predictive performance and reliability standards.

SOFTWARE DEFINED DATA CENTER



Software Define Data Center differs from the traditional hardware-based data center model, as all of the relevant infrastructure – such as the network, servers and storage – have been virtualized and delivered as a service. In this model, control of the data center can be fully configured and automated from a central management platform.
