Your networks underpin the operation of all your IT and networks are often assumed to just work.
Nevertheless, they may contain a considerable amount of sub-optimal configuration, faulty operation due to bugs and sometimes areas of poor design. It may have had a large number of changes or upgrades that in the short term improve functionality, but in the long term make operation more prone to failure.
Fortunately disasters rarely happen. This makes them expensive and difficult to plan for and ultimately manage. All businesses need to ensure that they are well prepared for a wide range of problems.
The answer is to plan ahead and to start thinking about how you can deal with the unthinkable.
Layer3 Systems has worked with networks, systems and databases for over 25 years. There is still something new to learn each day and as our customers make technical advances, we sometimes see that this leads to unexpected operation, underperformance or even failures in the network.
