Case Studies


A need was present to update the current Data Center facilities of a global Fortune 100 bank to support modern design and emerging technology. Through financial modeling derived from in-depth research and records, the board approved the project to move forward to close on the two development sites and proceed to engage in the development of the new facilities for the worldwide operations of the bank.


With explosive growth and the need to expand rapidly to meet server demand, this Fortune 500 e-commerce firm had to re-evaluate its Data Center footprint. This firm was able to acquire from a local Data Center developer a partially built out facility that would support their growth for the next seven to ten years. This also allowed them to deploy their capital to expand, as needed.


Looking to change their data center strategy, this Fortune 500 systems integrator engaged with the Data Center Solutions team to evaluate options across the data center market and negotiate a transaction in less than 90 days. The team was able to achieve flexibility in deploying data center capacity in a "ramped in" fashion, not committing to more power than necessary while preserving the ability to add power in the future at a pre-determined cost.
