It’s all about the business model

There is a lot of talk about what the Edge is and what it enables, but nothing happens without first addressing the business model which allows the edge ecosystem to profitably deploy and operate at the Edge.

Since 2012, DartPoints has been deploying and operating edge colocation data centers for customers. We have learned that every customer is unique and so are their requirements. Regardless of the edge services needed, every customer needs a proven, reliable operator that understands how to make their edge business model profitable.

DartPoints’ proprietary Orchestration Service System enables customers to seamlessly deploy and operate their applications and equipment supported by a nationwide service team to address all managed services.

DartPoints also understands that it requires a full ecosystem approach to enable our customers to connect at the edge. We have assembled a consortium of the leaders in connectivity, Internet/cloud exchange, backhaul, security, and server infrastructure that can deliver any of services required at the edge.

How We Deploy

The key differentiator of the edge is that it places critical compute, storage, connectivity, and technical support at the location which provides optimal performance. There is no one-size-fits-all solution that works in all locations. DartPoints has the experience in deploying and operating edge colocation data centers in the following locations.

How We Operate

Every customer is unique and every deployment is different, DartPoints solution provides flexible components that allows our customers to select those capabilities required to meet their objectives.

Flexible Locations

DartPoints has partnered with some of the largest real estate firms in the world to quickly utilize or acquire the exact locations required by our customers. The strength of these partnerships allows DartPoints to assess the specific requirements, recommend deployment options, and quickly move to deploy critical infrastructure.

Flexible Deployment Models

DartPoints is vendor agnostic which allows us the flexibility to work with all critical infrastructure manufacturers to deploy the best engineering and technical solution required. Whether we are deploying a small greenfield data center, in-building data center, or large multi-pod interconnection campus, DartPoints has the experience and relationships to deploy for both single-tenant and multi-tenant environments.

Seamless Orchestration of Services

DartPoints proprietary Service Orchestration Platform allows our customers to easily access all of DartPoints services to create the unique set of applications and functionality required, from edge colocation to connectivity to bare metal solutions. Our customer interface also gives our customers the ability to expand capacity at existing sites, add new services, or request new locations. Additionally, our system integrates with our customer’s existing processes to ensure smooth operations from the field to back office.

All-Inclusive Support

Most of our customers don’t have nationwide teams to manage a massively distributed portfolio. This is why DartPoints’ brings with it not only critical infrastructure expertise to manage the edge colocation data centers, but also multiple levels of hands-on, remote, and augmented technical services to handle our customers deployment and operations at our sites.
