Data Center Case Study - Qoncert




Qoncert is a Tampa, Florida-based IT systems integrator. Founded in 2003, Qoncert helps clients throughout Florida with IT and networking needs and services, including cloud-based VoIP. Since its inception, Qoncert has grown exponentially, with revenues rising 400% even during an economic downturn.

The Situation

In November 2010, Qoncert was primed to take the next step forward. Staff size and space needs had exceeded its current building capacity and the lease was about to expire. Officials at Qoncert decided to purchase a large warehouse and convert it to fit their specific requirements. Qoncert needed to quickly deploy a data center solution at the newly acquired property, but it needed to be done without affecting IT and network performance in a building under construction.
