Compu Dynamics Delivers Flexible Power Infrastructure Solutions for Fortune 500 Enterprise

The client needed to consolidate into new space, and they had to move quickly. With only four weeks to create a custom design, Compu Dynamics delivered everything the client needed…and more.

The Client

Global Fortune 500 IT security solutions provider

The Challenge

The client’s IT team was tasked with deploying a large-scale enterprise cloud platform to migrate internal applications from several retail spaces onto one consolidated platform. They were leasing wholesale data center space, but weren’t sure what power and data cabling requirements they needed to meet their IT and security requirements. They had only four weeks to come up with a plan that would meet their immediate and future enterprise needs. An uninformed decision could mean having to incrementally add more power and networking capabilities in the future— leading to increased costs and risks to a mission-critical production environment.

The Compu Dynamics Solution

The client’s cloud engineering team consulted with Compu Dynamics to develop a custom design that fit the company’s IT infrastructure needs and the specific constraints of the leased space.

In just four weeks, Compu Dynamics:

  • Designed a cabinet, power, and network layout that accommodated growth and evolving business needs.
  • Installed a complete power and network infrastructure for 40 high-density cabinets.
  • Planned cooling and power solutions to manage consumption.
  • Provided the client with the training and tools to efficiently manage the space.


Within less than two years, the client will save millions from the wholesale colocation build out that provides the space, cooling, and power necessary to keep their IT infrastructure running reliably, efficiently, and affordably.

“Since cloud platforms require high density server racks there will be a greater need for this type of solution among enterprise businesses. We are going to see more companies turning to wholesale colocation so they can achieve the cost savings of outsourcing while retaining control over their IT infrastructure.”
