Custom Build Server and Storage Technology to Improve Performance

As business data volumes continue to grow exponentially, savvy businesses know that leveraging this information effectively can help to increase competitiveness significantly. But IT architects also know that managing data effectively requires custom-built servers and storage technology that can address the specific workloads and unique needs of the organization. The cost to custom build server and storage hardware, however, has often been a hindrance, causing many companies to opt for prepackaged solutions that don’t truly serve their needs.

As an industry leader in servers and storage solutions, Aberdeen enables IT teams to custom build server and storage technology to their exact specifications – even with a minimum order quantity of 1 – at a cost that makes customized storage solutions easily affordable.

Why Custom-Built Technology Matters

There’s one question that IT architects tasked with managing growing data volumes must constantly ask: are we achieving time to insight as fast, or faster than our competitors? If the answer is no, it’s time to reevaluate existing data storage and server technology.

Traditionally, for many IT teams, prepackaged solutions from major manufacturers seemed like the only option for managing the explosive growth of data with IT budgets that were fairly flat. While these off-the-shelf technologies weren’t ideally suited to the data needs of the organization, they were often the most economical option.

However, without server and storage solutions specifically tailored to the unique workloads of their organizations, IT teams often struggle to achieve the performance and agility the organization needs for storing, securing, analyzing, processing and delivering the right data to the right users at the right time.

That all changes when IT teams can custom build servers and storage hardware to exact specifications. And with Aberdeen, these custom storage solutions can match the value of prepackaged technologies while delivering performance and reliability that is far superior.
