Since 2007, we’ve helped firms make the best decisions about their data center strategy. If you’re purchasing wholesale data center space, it’s the fulcrum of your digital business. We’d love to help you find the right path through all the choices...
Why Bring In External Help?
Sometimes it’s best to take a step back and allow a specialist to bring you vendors that will contribute to your organizations’ success. There are many options for hyperscale facilities and a perfect fit depends on how you are deploying your infrastructure. The worst feeling in the world is suspecting there may have been a better option out there to choose from.
How Does This Work?
The last thing you need is someone to step in and slow down the process of data center procurement. In a perfect world you’d find the exact fit, painlessly, quickly, and without committing to the facilities you’ve reached out to.
Ever had follow ups for years after an initial inquiry? We can help proxy your request between the hyperscale data center and you until you are ready to sign.
Since we are paid a finders fee for bringing viable clients to data centers, this service is completely free to our clients.
We’ll understand your present and future requirements for a Hyperscale Datacenter and draft a detailed requirements document that you can use your for your own research as well.
We Solicit Proposals
We’ll request vendors we feel maybe the best fit. There’s really no limit on how many vendors we can contact. Some of our requests are manual but we do have access to automated pricing tools for some vendors.
Normalize & Deliver Quotes
It’s important the the scope of each proposal be as identical as possible. Seeing a lower quote on one proposal without understanding that it’s missing a vital component can ruin a budget and cost enormous amounts of unexpected capital to resolve. Once we’ve assessed each quote, we clean them up and present them to you. We’re always available to discuss the quotes in details or even bring in the vendor for additional due diligence.
We highly recommend a site visit in all cases. We are able to coordinate with all the hyperscale facilities you’ve short-listed to setup detailed tours to allow you to view important aspects of the facility including logistical access.
Contracting & Implementation
Once you’ve chosen a facility, we can assist with any contract details and assist in coordinating shipments or any other logistical support. There is NO obligation to sign a contract by using our service. You can stop this process at anytime with no obligation.
We pair our clients with a data center subject matter expert. The goal is not to sell our clients anything but to ensure that every potential issue, bottleneck, and incompatibility is brought to light before signing a contract with a vendor. If we fail to meet this objective, ColoAdvisor will advise our clients to seek a different avenue such as standard colocation, hyperscale cloud, or a private cloud.
