The Datacentre forms the core of your IT infrastructure and so forms the core of our solutions. PFH has capabilities and expertise in a wide range of technologies and the ability to leverage manufacturer backed projects in order to provide our customers with best in class solutions.
Data is growing at an explosive rate. In 2013, worldwide digital data exceeded 4 zettabytes (ZB) for the first time. By 2020, IDC are predicting that the total will be 44 ZB. By 2025, they expect the total to reach nearly 200ZB.
Managing enormous data growth is a now a huge challenge for organisations. It is no longer simple backup and restore. Data is a strategic corporate asset and needs to be stored, protected and archived across private data centre and public cloud, while maintaining accessibility and compliance.
In 2016, PFH created a dedicated data management group to ensure we had the skills and expertise to support our clients as a trusted advisor in this crucial area. Using the industry’s outstanding data management application, CommVault (leading data management solution in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for 5 consecutive years) we have built a team who can design, deploy, support and manage the most complex environments. Our team of experts can provide remote monitoring, backup management and advanced reporting to supplement your IT staff, delivering a solution that optimises the strategic value of your data.
Our expert team will lead you on a transformational journey with proven, consultative methodology in the areas of modern data protection, analysis, self-service, archive, compliance and disaster recovery.
PFH have a rich heritage in the design and deployment of data centre solutions. From installing Ireland’s first SAN in the late 90s to deploying the first blade Compute farm in the mid-2000s, PFH have established a reputation as a leading provider of Compute and Storage solutions to public and private sector organisations in Ireland.
The role of the server has evolved significantly from a proprietary physical platform in the late 1990s to the commoditised virtual platforms prevalent in today’s data centres. And that shift is continuing at pace with the evolution of hyper-convergence, combining both compute and storage in a single building block.
And the storage industry is also undergoing huge change. SSD is rapidly overtaking the hard disk as the primary storage device, while the dominant data centre array solutions of the past 20 years are fragmenting into block, file, and object storage spanning traditional on premise, private cloud and public cloud environments.
PFH has assembled an outstanding pool of technical expertise to design, implement and support complex infrastructure solutions. With a forensic focus on technology and expertise, we combine hardware, software and services to provide best in class solutions that improve operational efficiency, reduce cost and optimise investment protection. Our infrastructure solutions are based on hardware and software from the world’s leading ICT manufacturers. We run our business with passion and integrity, delivering best in class solutions that exceed expectations and improve business outcomes.
