“Some assembly required” slowing you down?

From ordering hardware to the first bootstrap

Supply chain logistics: handled

Devices: Racked, stacked, patched, and ready for login

Spending way too much time setting up your gear?

Over days or weeks your gear starts arriving at the data center. Your switches, servers, storage nodes, KVMs, console servers, cables, and accessories.

You are then faced with the daunting task of unpacking the gear, racking it, and making it accessible.

Are you looking forward to spending weeks in a remote location busting knuckles on server rails and pulling hair getting devices remotely accessible?

Would it be easier if you had a partner managing the deployment project process for you?

"Devices, assemble!"

Infrassembly will help you figure out where each piece of equipment should be located.

We plan how it should all connect.

We keep track of your orders and delivery supply chain logistics.

We work with the data center remote hands to get your equipment racked, powered, and tidily cabled.

When we are done, we hand over access to your devops team.

You now have remote access to an environment primed to deploy your digital services.

Worried about things going wrong?

Fear of failure keeping you awake at night?

You can’t have hardware without hardware failures.

Drives fail. Switch ports die. Fans stop spinning. Power supplies stop supplying power. Uplinks can max out. Servers can stop pinging. Unmonitored PDU power usage can trip breakers.

The Infrassembly team’s expertise developed through managing RimuHosting’s hosting infrastructure.

RimuHosting case study

RimuHosting introduced technology that made it possible for a single physical server to be split into multiple virtual machines. They provide this virtual-machine-as-a-service using servers co-located in data centers.

The Infrassembly staff manage RimuHosting’s footprints in data centers across North America, Europe and Oceania.

The RimuHosting setup is typically: network link from the data center, core network, top of rack switches, and compute device intensive cabinets hosting VM hypervisor hosts.

Typical equipment in their environment includes Cisco Nexus switches, and Supermicro servers.

How easy is it to work with Infrassembly?

A part of your team

Accessible via Slack channel

Regular video meetings

A real partner in your operations team

'Private Client', a case study

Infrassembly staff manage the co-location hosting operation for an Nasdaq 100 client running an IoT device business.

Our clients' remote devices offload and store data on their data center co-located servers.

Their customers can then manage their devices from a dashboard running on hardware in the data center.

Our private client's data center operations manager says: I really appreciate what you [..] guys did to make me successful at [private client]

Hundreds of cabinets , across continents, all the nice gear

Typical equipment in their environment includes ASR routers, Nexus distribution and top of rack switching.

Each rack includes compute servers with integrated storage. Typically fibre from data center entrance to server port. They typically operate from biometrically secured private cages in the data center.

No one co-locates any more. Or do they?

Co-location: hosting done right, for less

Like being in control?

Prefer money in your pocket , not Amazon's?

But: can it be done easily?

Co-location: Hosting done right, for less

Co-location can be a better alternative to hyperscale cloud services

Everything old is new again. We are seeing businesses that want to have more control over their web services moving from public cloud providers back onto their own equipment within data centers.

Why co-locate?

  • Control. Privacy control. More control over maintenance timing.
  • Choose your hardware. Custom storage setup that scale to the size and speed you need. Incorporate ad-hoc GPU assistance.
  • Regain control of your compliance capabilities.
  • Often 6x cheaper than equivalent hyper scale cloud services
  • Abundant network connection options. Dedicated connections to cloud providers. Access to wholesale bandwidth pricing. Managing corporate VPN hubs.
  • Keep using all the technology you expect in the cloud: Kubernetes. VMs. Containers. GPUs. Storage networks. Micro services.

But: it’s a bit more work and requires a bit of thought. Make it easy with a partner who has been doing it for years.

[Who colocates? Hosting businesses. Suits technologies that make independent decisions rather than following the crowd. ]

Remind me, what is co-location?


Your own hardware

In a data center

Your own networking gear

One or more network connections (from data center or 3rd party provider)

Pay for hardware, space, power, network

Dedicated servers

Select or configure a physical server with a web host

In a data center

Pay to rent a server


Press a button, get a server

In a data center

Pay a monthly fee

Lowest cost at scale

Highest control

High involvement

Mid cost

[ skip for now, develop later on ]

  • Scripts to deploy switches, servers
  • Management hosts with network interfaces
  • Jump hosts
  • Console access
  • Out of band network/access
  • Config network on cimc, dhcp for ip, pxeboot for boot images
  • QA: testing network connections, ports correct, validate mac addresses, check hardware is to spec (memory, drives, cpu)
  • Records keeping

So how much are we talking?

Simple, affordable pricing

Typical setup fee USD 2,000-5,000 for planning an initial deployment.

Starting at USD 2000/month for up to two cabinets. Then from USD 800/month per cabinet.

No mark ups on your direct costs: remote hands fees, data center costs, equipment costs, bandwidth costs.

Don’t need a full cabinet of gear? We can purchase and host custom hardware for you (through RimuHosting’s managed hosting services).

You couldn't hire Infrassembly's experience at any price

No markups on your equipment and hosting costs

Why hire a team of data center operations gurus when you can use ours for the price of a one-day-a-week engineer.
