Computacenter's Silicon Valley Integration Center provide an alternative to traditional onsite implementation processes. Computacenter operates four state-of-the-art facilities in Hatfield (UK), Paris (France), Kerpen (Germany) and Newark, CA (UA) — that serve as one-stop resources for the integration and delivery of multivendor infrastructure and workplace solutions.
Computacenter's Integration Centers can support a wide range of projects but are ideal for:
- Rollouts of customized technology solutions to multiple locations
- Repetitive deployments of standardized equipment.
Rather than receiving equipment from manufacturers to be installed, configured and integrated onsite by Computacenter's Professional Services Group, customers can have Computacenter's engineering and logistics specialists fully configure solutions for plug-and-play installation anywhere in the world.
Inside Computacenter's Silicon Valley Integration Center
Our facility in Newark, CA has a total of 30,000 square feet, including thousands of square feet of raised-floor data center set up in wide aisles to accommodate pallets of inventory. The raised-floor area provides the necessary power and cooling to support the burn-in, configuration and testing of large amounts of equipment.
The engineering team includes certified engineers and technicians who are expert in a wide range of technologies. Computacenter regularly maintains a dozen benches in its staging area but can quickly double engineering capacity to meet customer demands.
The logistics team specializes in receiving, warehousing, inventory management, picking, packing, shipping, documentation and returns. Team members have extensive experience working through customs in countries around the world, handling the paperwork and advising customers of expected arrival dates for various destinations.
Computacenter's Integration Center Services in Action
An Integration Center project begins with a bill of materials cataloging every piece and part in a particular order, and configuration specifications from either the customer or Computacenter's Professional Services Group working in consultation with the customer.
Equipment is procured and shipped directly to the Integration Center if it’s not carried in inventory. A project timeline is developed based upon the customer’s schedule and ship-to locations. Once the equipment arrives, the staging team takes over, assembling components, applying asset tags, recording serial numbers and handling other details.
Computacenter offers an array of Integration Center services to meet various customer requirements:
- Custom Labeling and Asset Tagging
- Hardware integration
- Equipment burn-in
- Standardized firmware updates and software imaging
- Quality Control
- Replacement of failed equipment
