4sl brings unrivalled knowledge and experience to the Design and Deployment of any backup and recovery or storage infrastructure solution. This not only includes expertise across all enterprise backup software offerings and major storage hardware vendors, but also experience gained from some of the largest and most complex backup and storage infrastructure projects in Europe. This experience spans the entire deployment lifecycle from initial business strategy and solution definition through full implementation to operational service.
The value 4sl can bring is no more prevalent than in the design phase. Combining that broad knowledge across all product vendors with the experience of massive scale enterprise deployments and world class managed services results in 4sl Consultants being best placed to capture and formulate the business requirements needed to design a solution and apply best practice principles and techniques to drive the right and most appropriate deployments. These best practice principles adopt many of the leading frameworks such as PRINCE2, TOGAF and ITIL.
4sl recognises that Solution Design is not just about backup software. It fully appreciates the end to end infrastructure needed to deploy enterprise class solutions and 4sl Solution Architects are highly skilled at coordinating and facilitating the inputs required from all technical teams within an enterprise, including servers, storage, networks, DBAs, data centre managers, service delivery and operations.
A key component of any IT infrastructure deployment is Project Management. 4sl can provide PRINCE2 accredited Project Managers, backed by a mature internal PMO function that can manage the full end to end delivery from initial backup strategy definition, through high and low level designs, to hardware and software deployment liaising with internal client resources and third party suppliers.
