Our client is a maritime technology and communications company operating in Europe and the Caribbean, providing technology consulting to Super Yachts. Serving the super-rich means this market is a very demanding industry, with short time frames and high pressure envrionment.
Due to the demanding nature of the industry, our client needed a supplier who they could rely on 100%, who worked to high standards and who was able to deliver to extremely short deadlines.One of the projects was to source a 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 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 one of our partners. 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 as soon as it arrived at the yacht. We also supplied slim and powerful ceiling mounted wireless access points to fit in with the overall aesthetic of the boat.
This project demonstrated our ability to source very difficult to find, specify and supply equipment to deliver within extremely demanding lead times.
