Deploying datacenter infrastructure at scale for a major Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider

To exceed its application performance standards, a publicly traded SaaS client relies on dedicated datacenter infrastructure. To keep pace with global growth, it turned to Redapt for datacenter hardware, rack integration services, and international transportation logistics.

1
The problem

Business success for Redapt’s SaaS client created a challenge for IT operations. The IT team needed to deploy a datacenter with the capacity to keep pace with the provider’s increasing demand.

To meet application performance goals, the datacenter compute, storage, and network infrastructure would need to be deployed in globally distributed co-location facilities.

2
The solution

Redapt partnered with IT operations to develop a bespoke rack integration services program that ensured timely deployment of datacenter infrastructure. Our team took ownership of the entire process from design to delivery for hundreds of ready-for-use datacenter racks.

The outcome

Our SaaS client cost-effectively deploys compute, storage, and network capacity to its network of globally distributed co-location datacenters while greatly improving key performance metrics
