Since 1987, Datatrend has been consulting, designing, and deploying network solutions for large enterprises and multi-location clients. These clients span a wide range of industries, networking environments, technologies, and disciplines.
The network has become critical to every organization. There is zero tolerance for downtime. Your users and customers demand constant access to their applications and data.
Datatrend’s Solution Architects are here to ensure that your network meets the needs of your applications, data, users, and customers. We have experience with many technologies, including network virtualization, network function virtualization (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN/SD-WAN), wireless, network security, and IoT.
Datatrend works with all the leading server network manufacturers. Our Solution Architects combine intense product and technical knowledge with real-world experience to deliver vendor-agnostic network solutions.
Software-defined networking (SDN) has become increasingly prevalent. SDN is not a specific product, but rather a new approach to networking architecture. SDN seeks to decouple the management of the network from data that the network transports.
The evolution of SDN has accelerated because the network itself has become harder to define. The network your organization uses is not limited to what is contained behind your firewall – you connect to the cloud, SaaS applications, and remote users.
All of an organization’s infrastructure is becoming software-defined, and control of the data center is automated through software. This can create massive efficiencies where hardware is managed by analyzing many points of data and acting on that data in real-time.
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) is a telecommunications industry effort to transform how network services are delivered and deployed. The goal of NFV is to deploy Network Functions (switches, routers, firewalls, etc.) as virtual machines using general-purpose servers, storage, and hypervisor technologies.
