How We Differentiate

Innovative compute and storage engineering

Innovative Compute and Storage Engineering Expertise

Our team of compute and storage subject matter experts have a deep understanding of manufacturer roadmaps, ensuring that you have the best compute and storage solution for your CDN. Our early visibility into manufacturer roadmaps coupled with our solutions lab allow us to engineer using the latest technology, so you can feel confident in your solution.

We have over 13 years of CSP/CDN design, compute, networking, and storage experience and expertise in unique I/O workloads(large & small object, streaming), media types and formats, as well as full-stack SDx, and virtualization.

versatile solutions lab

Versatile Solutions Lab

Our high performance solutions and R&D lab based in Minneapolis, MN helps CDNs integrate, test, and certify hardware and software.

Building out POC/Pilot solutions onsite at the customer location can cost a lot of time and money. Because of our flexible, custom configurations, we can stage and test equipment in our Solutions Lab, where can easily swap components and try new ideas. Our client servers can create actual workloads and we have several IO generating software tools.

During this test phase, we give customers VPN access to those staged solutions so you can get hands-on with your new solution.

program and supply chain management

Experienced Program & Supply Chain Management

EQUUS can serve as the procurement arm for your compute and storage needs, all the while giving your team full visibility into the process. Your dedicated program manager ensures that you have a single point of contact to conduct bi-weekly or weekly forecasting calls.

We manage forecasts based on component availability as well as your deployment schedule, so the hardware is ready when you are. We’ll also make component investments on your behalf, including binding and non-binding purchase orders. Because of our relationships with leading suppliers, we can ensure quicker deployment while reducing your supply chain risk. EQUUS will manage the relationships with component manufacturers, reducing the number of vendors your team needs to track.

Because many of our CDN customers have multiple buying groups, our program managers will make your hardware is consistent across those groups. And because you need maximum visibility, we offer portal integration that includes shipment status, inventory reporting, and custom reporting based on your unique needs.

When it comes to the bill of materials management for end-of-life (or new) components, our program management team will ensure global hardware and component compliance. The program managers also work with our manufacturing team to adhere to build documents and implement changes, so you get product build consistency.

high quality manufacturing

High-Quality Manufacturing

With multiple production facilities in City of Industry, CA and Chicago, IL, and more than 140,000 square feet, we excel at custom-configured compute solutions, servers, and storage devices. We can also provide short and long-term warehousing options depending on your needs.

Our rigorous manufacturing process includes custom software imaging, component installation, testing, serial number tracking of all components, server sub-component serialization, component preparation, asset tagging, 100% system testing, BIOS stamping, and labeling and branding options.

The result is full system integration, ready to deploy on your Content Delivery Network.

manufacturing partnerships

Leading Manufacturing Partnerships

Because of our direct relationships with leading manufacturers like Intel and Supermicro, we can provide some of the lowest lead times on components in the industry. Our team also has deep product line knowledge to ensure that your solution provides maximum performance at the lowest cost.

global compliance management

Global Compliance Management

Being flexible in engineering usually means new certifications for key markets. Certifications for some countries take time and have fairly high costs, so ask us about managing or assisting with certifications. We’re here to help manage your certifications so you can grow globally.

Personalized Tech Support

Personalized Technical Support

Our technical support offers full life-cycle support from inspiration to obsolescence. We can support your content delivery network globally from our locations in California, Minnesota, Illinois, Germany, and Brazil.

All of our systems come with a 1-year warranty with the option for additional customization, like extending the warranty to 3 years or buying the spare parts and paying for swaps as they occur.

EQUUS can create custom support models to align with your internal service level agreements. We can even repair systems that we didn’t sell through our program, and some customers buy full-service warranties that include on-site repair service.

We can also manage your CDN’s security and add deep automation and integration into your customer relationship management systems.
