(The Hosting News) – Global 1 Resources, a manufacturer and provider of server racks, has completed a deal with Opus-3 to provide over 300 universal server racks for the new 9,000 square foot data center. In addition to the universal server racks, Global 1 Resources will also be providing two-compartment colocation server racks. The colo racks will allow for dedicated management and hosting, along with colocation hosting capabilities. The G1 server racks will house all of Opus-3 and Client server equipment located on their data floors. Opus-3 has upgraded their access management by adding custom combination/master key locks, offered by Global 1 Resources, on all of their racks. The property for the data center was formerly leased to AudioNet/Broadcast.com/Yahoo!, and Opus-3 has plans to expand the property to over 36,000 square feet.
“Working with Opus-3 has made our job easy,” said Marcos Garza, President of Global 1 Resources. “David Herr and his team have been very cooperative when we had questions for them. Communication is vital when trying to fulfill our customer’s needs. If this is a sign of what their services will be like, Opus-3 has a long & solid future ahead of them.”
In addition to the new server racks, Opus-3 will receive marketing help from Find Rack Space, giving their new data center more exposure in the online marketplace. Garza added, “Find Rack Space’s goal is to put Opus-3’s services/ads in front of potential customers looking for managed hosting or co location space in the Dallas, Texas area. Our search directory will help narrow down available services offered by Opus-3. Strategic on-line marketing, offered by Find Rack Space’s marketing team, will help send leads to Opus-3, allowing them to grow and support business’ local and nationwide.”
When asked to comment on the decision to go with Global 1 Resources, Herr stated, “We looked at numerous manufacturers and models before we settled on cabinets from Global 1. As a data center targeted towards the small and medium business market we needed to find the most cost effective solution while still delivering a quality product. The G1 racks are top quality construction with the features we needed at the price point we had to meet.”
