The Value of a Custom Rackmount Server for Managing Data

More IT architects today are looking for custom rackmount server solutions to improve the capacity and performance of the data center. While prepackaged technologies from major manufacturers claim to offer significant cost savings, custom server solutions enable IT teams to better manage the unique workloads and applications of their organization. And with the right technologies, custom enterprise storage solutions can offer lower costs and superior value as well.

As a leading manufacturer of custom servers and storage technologies for more than two decades, Aberdeen provides custom rackmount server options that combine industry-leading reliability with exceptional performance at a price that ensures lasting value.

The Role of Custom Technology in the Data Center

IT teams face two challenges when choosing an enterprise storage server for data backup, nearline storage, media sharing storage, content creation, streaming media and post-production solutions.

  • Explosive data growth. The business world is generating data at unprecedented levels and at a pace that is only accelerating. With corporate data worldwide expected to double every 14 months, IT teams need flexible data solutions that allow for increased capacity without burdening IT teams or breaking IT budgets.
  • Rising expectations for performance. Businesses are continually finding new ways to use data to improve productivity, optimize processes, engage customers, identify opportunities and minimize risk. IT teams are tasked with ensuring that data center technology can deliver the performance required to store, process, analyze and deliver data at lightning speed to enable the business to compete more effectively.

Solving these challenges requires more than prepackaged server and storage solutions. To achieve the speed and performance required, IT teams must have custom resources that can be perfectly aligned with business needs, that provide the flexibility to respond to changing business requirements and that can minimize hiccups and daily processes and quickly resolve issues when they arise.

Custom rackmount servers can address these challenges more efficiently than standardized solutions, but the cost can be prohibitive. That's why, when designing data center solutions for high performance, many of the world's largest businesses choose custom rackmount servers from Aberdeen.
