CentricsIT Provides Consulting Firm with a Complete Data Center Refresh During the Microchip Shortage
The consulting firm wanted to do a full data center refresh across four of its locations in the southeast (including a disaster recovery site) for its core and edge networking, servers, and storage, with a targeted completion date of Labor Day weekend 2022.
The company was looking for a partner that could procure the hardware needed quickly. The microchip shortage that had begun in 2020 would not begin to improve until the second half of 2022. The company could not afford to wait years to refresh its data centers. It needed a vendor that could develop a plan not only for procurement, but for delivery and installation. It also needed a vendor who could decommission and remove the older hardware.
