The word “aegis” is from the Greek meaning shield.
The modern concept of doing something “under someone’s aegis” means doing something under the protection of a powerful, knowledgeable, or benevolent source. Source: Wikipedia
This is a fitting definition for what Aegis Data Center Services is about. Our focus is on protecting the investment Data Center owners and operators make in their IT infrastructure, primarily acting as a customer advocate.
Aegis roots began with installing surge protective devices (SPDs) for commercial and industrial customers. Customers were not always aware of the devastation a single lightning strike or utility fault can cause. We made a point to go beyond the installation and educate the customer on the hidden risks to their data center operations.
We took that knowledge and expanded into other areas beyond power protection, looking at mechanical systems, white space layout, physical security and operations.
We take a holistic view of your data center, power, cooling, space and provide a comprehensive analysis of your IT environment and recommendations to improve the infrastructure, often at low cost or will give a return on investment quickly.
If you have a Data Center that is over five years old, and you wonder what might happen if there is a nearby lightning strike; a loss of utility power, a diesel generator or UPS failure. Or you are concerned there may be some hidden hazard left undiscovered, give us a call. We would be glad to help.
