Datatrend Technologies, Inc., a leading technology infrastructure solutions and network services provider, is offering a UNIX server assessment for businesses focused on reducing expenses and improving efficiencies. With the help of a new tool, the company is offering an assessment service to help businesses determine the effectiveness of an existing server infrastructure.

Datatrend has teamed with IBM to offer a no charge ROI and TCO analysis of existing UNIX environments, including even older IBM environments, leveraging the patented Enterprise ROI Engine from Alinean, Inc. The tool is used to collect data and assess the current infrastructure including power consumption. Using the information it gleans, Datatrend can prove how moving to IBM Power Systems from Oracle/Sun and/or HP-UX can dramatically reduce costs while simultaneously improving performance, efficiencies and ease of management.

Datatrend also offers a technology briefing service to collaborate with clients on needs and then deliver a tailored technology briefing or in-depth analysis of the latest AIX and POWER capabilities. Datatrend consultants will cover in detail how organizations can leverage advanced functions in their mission to optimize or to deploy solutions that meet scaling, performance and availability objectives. Once an IBM Power Systems solution has been installed, businesses can expect a return on their investment within nine months.

IBM is the industry leader when it comes to data storage and server technology infrastructure solutions. IBM Power Systems, System x, BladeCenter and storage system solutions consistently outperform the competition, using significantly less energy. For installation of IBM systems, Datatrend delivers its own experience and results. The company has become well-known for expertly deploying IBM storage and server technology infrastructure solutions for organizations large, small or somewhere in between. Together, Datatrend and IBM are a veritable force in the server infrastructure solutions market.

“For any business that has been anxious about investing in a new server infrastructure, the tool from Alinean should really help ease their minds about moving forward with that decision,” said Darren Waldrep, Datatrend's Vice President of Strategic Alliances. “With it, we can prove where their system is inefficient and how we can specifically help them to make it better. Once they know where they are and where they could be, we think its really going to help them get excited about change instead of fearing it.”
