Sourcing very specific, hard to find IT equipment and delivering to extremely tight deadlines

The Client

Nauticall Ltd is a maritime IT and communications company operating in Europe and the Caribbean, providing IT support to Super Yachts. Serving the Super Rich means this is a very demanding marketplace.

The Requirement

Due to the demanding nature of the industry, Nauticall needed a supplier who they could rely on 100%, who worked to their exacting standards and who was be able to deliver at extremely short notice.

The brief was to find a wireless server that would fit into a 503mm deep cabinet within the yacht and fit in within the overall design scheme. The lead time we were given was eye wateringly tight.

The Solution

The difficulty was finding a server to fit the tiny space. The servers from the major suppliers were all too deep.

Our solution was to supply a short depth server manufactured by Supermicro. As the server needed to be housed in a cabinet, we installed heavy duty counter-rotating fans with optimal fan speed for additional cooling.

The system was pre-configured to the customers' requirements and was ready to install immediately it arrived at the yacht. We also supplied slim and smooth ceiling mounted wireless access points with high frequency range to fit in with the overall aesthetic of the boat.

This project demonstrated our ability to source the most difficult to find kit and deliver within extremely demanding lead times.
