Equus Builds Facility for Custom Data Center Infrastructure

Channel-focused Equus has opened a new Southern California production facility to meet the growing demands of the cloud and Internet hosting markets.

Equus hosted the grand opening of its 102,000 square-foot facility in the (appropriately named) City of Industry, located in the Los Angeles metro area. Three Equus companies — Equus Computing Systems, Intequus and Servers Direct — will have use of the facility to build and ship customer servers and storage devices for data center customers.

The new facility also was engineered to allow customer data networks to connect with the production floor, permitting customers to “image and reimage” their hardware orders before shipment, according to Equus.

“Our new City of Industry facility prepares us for strong growth,” said Andy Juang, president and CEO of Equus, in a prepared statement. “The cloud and Internet hosting markets are growing exponentially. This new facility enables us to continue to meet the needs of the customers we serve and to grow with their business.”

Equus Computing Systems delivers custom computing solutions to VARs, ISVs and OEMs. Equus CS develops build-to-order computing systems to meet precise customer needs and provides “end-to-end” service support.

Intequus builds customized data center infrastructure for the cloud and hosting market, and hardware appliances for ISVs. The company believes that “public cloud service providers and data center solutions providers do not want to pay for branded and more proprietary hardware solutions” from traditional manufacturers. Intequus instead provides custom Intel-based servers, storage and network appliances built to customers’ specifications at competitive prices.

Servers Direct will also operate from the new facility, and provides custom server and storage systems to online IT customers.
