With locations on both the East and West coasts of the United States, our client offers business hosting solutions that include unlimited disk space, free SSL, free server management and “all nines” network uptime. Our client’s services have been so popular that an expansion became essential, despite the recent addition of a second data center suite in West Coast hub. A nice problem to have, no doubt, but it still remains a challenge.
By moving to smaller servers and specialized cabinets, the client went from 44 racks to 104, with each rack now holding 48 servers as opposed to 40. By switching to Server Technology PDUs, the client also realized a $300 per month/per rack cost savings – a number that added up very quickly, helping to pay for the project in the long run.
