A partner resource
iM is a partner to Clients that want to save money and have flexible colocation options without getting lost in the shuffle at low-touch colossal data centers and non-carrier-neutral facilities. On a server-by-server basis, clients choose what is left alone and what receives high level of managed services. Clients can manage their own network and platforms, or use our iM's smart hands as a comprehensive solution to offload IT workload & costs without sacrificing reliability. Our support functions include rack and stack, storage, monitoring and reporting options, all on a highly cost-effective basis.
modular colocation options
iM also delivers fully-managed colocation services within plug-and-play, factory-built iM modular data centers operated by iM, based on the need for high-tier facilities at locations without attractive colocation options. iM modular data centers are typically configured as contiguous pods that contain 20 or 25 server racks, expandable side-by-side to create a modular solution with open data center space that is easy to work within. Server rack pods are powered by electrical pods and served by administrative pods connected directly to rack pods.
Installed at the customers premises or off, all aspects of site selection, design, engineering, manufacturing, installation and commissioning are available from iM on a flexible basis, intelligently tailored to our customer needs. These tightly-controlled environments enable power and cooling efficiencies that are simply not possible in the wide-open spaces of legacy data centers, and our modules are delivered at a fraction of the time needed for traditional construction.
