Une gamme de services unique de Cogeco Services Réseaux aide les chefs des services informatiques à se concentrer sur la transformation de leur entreprise

Cogeco Services Réseaux a annoncé aujourd’hui le lancement d’une solution de TI et de communication (TIC) unique à l’appui des efforts des chefs des services informatiques qui sont appelés à simplifier l'infrastructure TI de leur entreprise et à créer de la valeur dans le cadre du processus de transformation organisationnelle. La nouvelle gamme de services intègre les services de TI gérés et les services de centre de données, d’informatique en nuage et de connectivité de Cogeco Services Réseaux.

Tandis que la consommarisation des TI prend de l’ampleur, de plus en plus d’entreprises souhaitent simplifier leur infrastructure TI et se doter de solutions novatrices. Mark Schrutt, directeur de l’équipe des Services de TI et Applications d’entreprise d’IDC, cabinet de recherche d’envergure mondiale, confirme cette tendance : «Les services de TI sont continuellement exposés aux pressions qui les amènent à innover et à créer de la valeur, tout en assurant la gestion sécuritaire des données de leur entreprise. La consommarisation des TI s’est traduite par un énorme afflux d’utilisateurs de solutions de TI clandestines (employés acquérant des solutions de TI qu’ils utilisent au travail à l’insu du service de TI de leur entreprise), et l’accès facilité aux solutions d’informatique en nuage a grandement contribué au développement de cette tendance. En optimisant l’infrastructure TI de leur entreprise et en tirant parti des solutions d’informatique en nuage, de centre de données, de TI gérées et de connectivité de classe entreprise, les chefs des services informatiques peuvent se concentrer davantage sur l’essentiel, mieux s’intégrer à leur entreprise et permettre à celle-ci de bénéficier d’une valeur ajoutée.»

Bien que l’emploi de solutions de TI clandestines et l’informatique en nuage ne soient pas nouveaux, ils sont de plus en plus répandus. Une étude réalisée par IDC1 révèle que, dans les entreprises, 25 % des achats de matériel et d’applications informatiques sont effectués à l’insu du service de TI et que 60 % des entreprises canadiennes croient que le recours à l’informatique en nuage est essentiel à leur réussite. Les chefs des services informatiques progressistes connaissent la valeur qui découle de l’adoption de ces nouveautés permettant de mieux répondre aux besoins de l’entreprise.

Le secteur des jeux en ligne, l’un des nombreux secteurs verticaux que sert Cogeco Services Réseaux, n’est pas étranger aux innovations créées sous l’impulsion des utilisateurs, ou favorisées par les joueurs, mais ce sont les éditeurs qui en permettent la mise en œuvre. Des modifications apportées ainsi chaque jour aux produits permettent d’en améliorer la version finale. Infinite Game Publishing, éditeur de jeux en ligne tels que MechWarrior et Sins of a Dark Age, a fait appel à Cogeco Services Réseaux quand est venu le moment d’optimiser son infrastructure TI. «Cogeco Services Réseaux nous a fourni une solution souple, évolutive et fiable intégrant des services de TI gérés, de connectivité et d’informatique en nuage, relate Kelly Zmak, président d’Infinite Game Publishing. Compte tenu de nos besoins et de l’évolution rapide de notre industrie, il nous fallait une solution unique permettant de tester et de lancer rapidement des jeux en ligne à l’aide d’une infrastructure TI unique, de la réalisation des tests bêta jusqu’au lancement. Cogeco Services Réseaux a mis au point une solution souple assortie d’un niveau de service élevé grâce à laquelle nous pouvons nous permettre de moins nous préoccuper de l’efficacité opérationnelle et de nous concentrer davantage sur la création d’expériences exceptionnelles pour nos clients.»

Les capacités de bout en bout de Cogeco Services Réseaux lui confèrent un avantage lorsqu’il s’agit de convaincre les entreprises qu’elle peut les aider à simplifier leur infrastructure TI et à réaliser des gains d’efficacité sur le plan opérationnel, tout en permettant à leur chef des services informatiques de se concentrer sur la création de valeur. La gamme de services unique de Cogeco Services Réseaux – qui repose sur des services de centre de données disponibles en tout temps, une connectivité réseau transparente et des services d’informatique en nuage, de stockage et de sauvegarde de données, et de reprise après sinistre évolutifs – est accessible au moyen d’une connexion unique.

«En fournissant des solutions uniques de classe entreprise, nous avons pu élargir l’étendue de nos services et aider ainsi nos clients à tirer une valeur maximale de notre savoir-faire et des innovations technologiques, affirme Virginia Brailey, vice-présidente, Gestion de produits et marketing à Cogeco Services Réseaux. Notre nouvelle gamme de services vise à aider les entreprises à simplifier leur infrastructure TI et à permettre à leur service de TI de moins s’occuper du soutien opérationnel, de façon à pouvoir se concentrer sur l’innovation.»

But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
