7 Must-Have Strengths For a Datacenter Solution Company (+ 5 best partners and integrators to consider)

By Redapt Marketing | Posted on August 10, 2023 | Posted in Enterprise Infrastructure,

In the ever-evolving landscape of the digital era, the need for reliable datacenter infrastructure deployment solutions has reached unprecedented levels. Industry powerhouses like Microsoft, AWS, and Meta demonstrate remarkable efficiency by deploying datacenter infrastructure at scale. They have established dedicated teams that streamline the datacenter rack deployment process. 

As other organizations aspire to achieve similar heights, a strategic approach involves collaborating with specialized partners offering rack integration services. This collaboration can free you up to focus on innovating core offerings and driving more revenue for growth. With many providers vying for your attention, choosing the perfect partner for data center infrastructure integration can be daunting, even if you possess a firm grasp on effective vetting strategies. 

From value engineering, supply chain management, international logistics, and configuration automation to quality control, this post covers crucial aspects that aid in understanding your options and what qualities a partner should have to help you navigate the complexities of large-scale data center infrastructure deployments. We’ll also overview some top integrators and how they approach these key things to help identify your best fit.

The Value of Finding the Right Datacenter Solution Company 

A reliable datacenter solution company ensures maximum uptime and minimizes the risk of disruptions. These partners also often offer scalable solutions for resource utilization, minimizing the risk of failed integrations. 

Outsourcing is a cost-effective option for organizations who must deploy intermittently. This cost-effectiveness is especially effective for organizations with datacenter racks in multiple locations or across international borders.

The first step in enjoying these benefits is establishing great partner relationships. Large-scale deployments are complex and lengthy in duration. You must partner with a company invested in your success that deeply understands your goals and priorities. Investigate your potential partner’s background and experience to gauge their expertise and track record. 

Explore their services and any specialized solutions, assess their reputation and customer feedback, and verify compliance with industry standards and certifications to gauge performance and satisfaction levels. Your ideal partner should also have the technical knowledge of industry and OEM partnerships (Dell, HP, Arista, etc.) to reduce SKU costs to the component level. 

Hardware considerations should include understanding the data center infrastructure and technologies to ensure scalability and reliability. Check for infrastructure architecture to ensure optimal performance. Verify performance for all applications, data, and your end-users’ experience. Review the Service Level Agreements (SLAs) to understand commitments regarding on-time delivery and issue resolution. Lastly, evaluate customer support channels and availability for timely assistance.

Must-Have Strengths For a Datacenter Solution Partner 

Examining specific areas for potential integration partners can help identify your best fit: value engineering, speed-to-market, and trustworthiness for partners.  Let’s dive into those three areas and how five top system integrators approach them.

Value Engineering

Value engineering is the process of optimizing the value of a product or service. Technology companies - like the partners below - typically approach value engineering by analyzing costs, performance, features, and benefits to create solutions that offer the best value to their customers. How a potential partner assesses these aspects helps you see how well they understand their customers' needs, pain points, and objectives. And how they might optimize your current approach to deliver more cost-effective and innovative solutions that meet or exceed those needs.


Staying competitive in today’s rapidly evolving market means guaranteeing speed-to-market. Top datacenter solution companies do this by focusing on efficient product development processes, continuous improvement, and agile methodologies like rapid prototyping, iterative development, and quick product releases. A partner using these processes can provide a much-needed competitive edge, letting you respond to market demands faster and reduce time-to-value for your customers.


You don’t want to work with a technology company you can’t trust. Make your potential partner prove their trustworthiness by executing on their promises and communicating clearly. You should pursue a partner who provides you with proper account and project management for consistent communication.

On-time delivery and consistent delivery are also essential. You need to know you’re partnering with a datacenter integrator you can count on.
