Data Center & Hybrid IT Solutions
It can seem like the world is moving to the cloud, but not every process or workload belongs there. Many businesses still need to maintain some on-premises infrastructure for computing, storage, or backup.
Add in hybrid options, and you have a nearly infinite range of ways to structure your data center. Whatever hybrid IT looks like for you, we can help design and implement the ideal solution.
The Rise — and Range — of Subscription Models
As cloud IT has become ubiquitous, providers have experimented with subscription models to give their customers flexibility and scalability. Cloud computing and storage vendors are leading the way with consumption-based and service-based plans, but even on-prem IT vendors are offering subscription options.
This is more than a trend; it’s an evolution of the market. Subscription-based network, platform, and hardware solutions have become a promising part of IT planning.
Data Center Solutions
Primary and secondary storage, computing power, hardware needs — data centers and hybrid IT solutions bring together a lot of elements, and every organization has different needs. Let’s explore some of your options.
Primary Storage Solutions
How you should handle primary storage depends on the type of data you’re storing and how it’s used.
Working collaboratively? Network-attached storage (NAS) acts as a shared drive for files that need to be accessed and updated by multiple people on your network.
Operating a large, dynamic database? A storage area network (SAN), a.k.a. block storage, delivers a network of hard drives for peak performance when you need to read and write lots of data at once.
Utilizing Git for version control? With object storage, your developers can add, modify, and remove files with just a few lines of code.
Whatever the scenario, we’d love to talk about the primary storage system that best suits your data.
Secondary Storage Solutions
Secondary storage is all about security. Your backups and storage redundancies are an essential part of protecting your business, from disaster recovery planning to incident response.
But there are lots of things to consider — cost, accessibility, security features, and the types and characteristics of the data itself. To get the most out of your investment, choose secondary storage solutions that enhance your security measures and the other aspects of your IT.
Cloud computing, much like cloud storage, includes a range of solutions for use cases — but whatever the requirements are, we’re deeply familiar with the tools to address them.
Platforms like SimpliVity from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) provide hyper-simple and hyper-scalable tools for combining your IT infrastructure and data services into a single, affordable, integrated solution.
Need something a little more customized? Let’s discuss what the right cloud computing solution looks like for your business.
Hardware As A Service
Do you need some on-premises infrastructure but want to avoid the full cost and maintenance burden of the hardware assets you need?
Hardware as a service is the ideal solution for lots of organizations, including companies that are growing quickly and unsure what their long-term hardware needs will be.
Reach out to talk more about a solution for on-prem hardware that can scale up and down more easily, with predictable cost and built-in maintenance.
Your data needs evolve as your business grows.

Meet Our Customers
We work with businesses of all sizes and in a wide range of industries across Pennsylvania to build customized IT solutions — here's what they have to say!
They were very attentive to our needs throughout the entire process. Our IntegraONE sales rep was there throughout the entire process not just for the sales portion. Everything from the sales perspective, project management, and engineering were great. If I were to highlight anything as exceptional though, it would be the engineering services. And really, to me, that’s what it’s all about.
Our company is a little unique in that we are completely virtual but have close to 50 employees in the mid-Atlantic area out to Kansas City. We needed a MSP that could support our remote users with superior service. I believe we have found that with IntegraOne as their team is able to address our users helpdesk calls typically during the call using their remote login capability. They also respond quickly to our requests that are sent via email. Our servers are in the Microsoft Cloud and we utilize MS Office 365. The onboarding process and transition went very smoothly. Our onboarding was most likely different than others as they needed to accommodate us in our environment and touch each user’s system remotely.
We have built a great relationship with IntegraOne. I thoroughly enjoy working with Ian and the Integra One Engineers. What I enjoy most with our relationship is that I never feel like I am being sold products or services. We look at IntegraOne as part of our team.
IntegraONE has been a fantastic partner to us in everything else we've done, so [working with them on our move to SimpliVity] was just a no-brainer.
My son's Chromebook was fixed in less time than estimated which was amazing being that it is his primary tool for virtual learning! Customer service was great! Highly satisfied!
Fantastic! Highly recommend. I was able to mail my laptop to IntegraONE due to mobility issues. The laptop was repaired and returned to me in a week. I'm very satisfied.
Our partnership with IntegraONE allows us to focus on the strategic initiatives of our credit union without worrying about potential technological errors. With IntegraONE, we are able to focus our efforts on the needs of our members and the communities we serve.
IntegraONE and the FusionOne Managed Services is an essential operation to our campus. Having the support of many different specialized technicians, I am able to provide members, guests, and staff with the technology needed at our world-class facility.
We use IntegraONE for everything. I have known Brad [Rightmyer, VP of Service Operations] since he was a lowly tech, and he has worked his way all the way up to where he is now. We don’t want to use anybody else because they’ve always given us such great service.
I am so very pleased with our progress. [Our IntegraONE engineer] is a delight to work with and has taken the time to explain what he’s doing, why it needs to be done, and answer my many questions.
IntegraONE has been providing our company with comprehensive managed services for 5 1/2 years, and they are terrific - knowledgeable, responsive, and friendly.
Since partnering with IntegraONE, we have been extremely impressed with their ability to understand and respond to our IT needs. Their engineers carry a high degree of technical knowledge spanning a range of products and services, supporting us remotely and onsite in a quick and easy to interpret manner. Our management is pleased with the increase in productivity, reliability, and the overall health of our IT environment since IntegraONE’s involvement.
