DATA CENTER ASSET INSTALLATION
From servers to network devices to the latest storage and security solutions, RBA consultants can design, configure, install, and support your unique solution. If physical installation is required, RBA will even deploy our resources to ensure that your gear is properly handled.
RBA configuration management services help you effectively and efficiently manage your IT assets. Our custom-built solution provides management with the high level information they need to track and manage assets, while our detailed cage, rack, and U-position information for each device allows your staff to quickly identify the gear they need to access on an operational level.
Power and cooling loads are tracked for each device, and aggregated at the rack, row, and cage level, helping you manage and maximize data center utilization. Our solution even tracks service contract status and expiration date information for all your IT equipment, helping you to plan and manage your contract renewal costs.
