Turnkey Solution & Services
You can leverage our full turnkey solution services and save time with your new data center equipment delivered to you completely assembled, racked, stacked, cabled and labeled.You can eliminate the labor-intensive tasks to install new server clusters, storage devices or networking equipment by relying on our technicians to rack and cable your data center products either on-site or prior to shipping you’ll ensure consistency and high quality, regardless of the size of your deployment.
We’ll consolidate all required hardware and then the entire assembly process is executed by highly trained and experienced engineers. Once your components have been assembled, racked and cabled, the systems can be powered on, tested and integrated into your environment.
Our process includes following steps for full Rack turnkey solution.
Our rack integration engineering teams review customers’ rack integration requirements along with server, switch and PDU configurations to optimize rack dimensions, cabling arrangements, and PDU selections to meet the customers’ specifications for onsite deployment. Engaging early can help the customer select an optimal solution to best fit their needs. It is based on customers’ applications in order to select the most suitable hardware platform for the underlying application.
We works closely with our customer to ensure that the equipment being installed is within power parameters imposed by space, connection and or region. Accordingly we selects servers and networking devices to fit the platform and customers’ power constraints. The power team delivers fast, accurate power budget reports to increase server density, decrease solution footprint, and lower TCO.
Based on the calculated power budget, customers may choose the appropriate PDU from a list; or experienced personnel can recommend suitable PDUs able to supply sufficient power. Together with the chosen PDU, servers and networking devices, a Bill of Materials is created.
Professional experienced layout engineers will provide draft and final layouts for customer review and final integration it includes the BOM, an entire rack-level engineering layout diagram will be created according to the server and networking device power socket and data port positions and the implementation of underlying applications.
Assembly will be completed by production personnel with all custom parts installed. Subjected to the requirements, production department will assemble servers/nodes according to the server BOM. Networking devices will be integrated and third party devices will be procured in tandem with the assembly process to ensure that each server node meets strict tests and is configured to meet the requirements.
Rack and Stack
Our experienced assembly technicians will stack these parts inside the appropriate rack cabinets according to the SOP. The services team will securely mount servers, switches, power distribution units, and accessories to the racks, with labeling to customers’ specifications or in accordance to industry best practices. Systems interconnections and additional testing will help to guarantee the best possible customer experience.
Cabling and Labeling
After the server systems are stacked inside their respective racks, technicians will wire the data and power cords according to the engineering layout diagrams. Each cable will also be labeled clearly with a unique identifier.
After a solution is completed, each node’s BIOS settings will be professionally updated, adjusted and tested. Nodes will also be consistent to each other according to customer’s preference.
OS and Customer Imaging
Operating Systems and customer images can be pre-installed and configured into each node with professional tools. This greatly saves the customer time and effort and provides flexibility for customers to deploy their resources to their core application.
Full Rack Burn-in and QA
After the above procedures have been completed, a full rack burn-in test will be performed, for a testing length preferred by the customer and validated according to professional quality assurance procedures. This guarantees the reliability of the solution during extended periods in an optimized running environment. After all the above tests have been performed, a performance benchmark report will be generated and evaluated. Through this step can provide solution integration with a consistently high level of quality through an end-to-end validation test, extended burn-in, and test record.
