Unified solutions for your network

With data center virtualization, network infrastructure has advanced to allow information delivery anywhere, anytime. This puts significant pressure on IT teams to ensure they continually meet user demands.

Complex, heterogeneous environments add to the network management challenges. And protecting business-critical data requires specialized expertise and vigilance – which many IT departments are short on – to stay ahead of security threats.

As a single-vendor IT service provider for all leading technologies throughout the data center, Datalink can develop unified solutions that maximize your network's performance – tailored to meet specific organizational requirements. Together with our long-standing relationships with leading IT vendors like NetApp, Symantec, Cisco, HDS, and EMC, we offer proven expertise to provide a robust yet flexible network that evolves to meet ever-changing demands and future challenges.

We are a recognized leader in virtualization, advanced network infrastructure, and unified communications. We have experience with many leading manufacturers to help companies apply the technologies that best serve their business. From reference architectures that include Cisco blades, VMware, EMC storage, or Hitachi UCP Select for VMware vSphere with Cisco UCS, our solutions assist clients in taking optimal advantage of IT convergence.
