The backbone of any digital transformation project is the infrastructure that’s designed to support it. Whether applications run in data centers, on edge devices, or in the cloud, a solid hardware foundation will drive the best performance for your applications.
AHEAD designs custom infrastructure solutions to meet the application needs of complex IT and OT ecosystems. Our high-touch services are tailored to large enterprise organizations with complex multi-site IT requirements, spanning hardware design and integration through global deployment and lifecycle management.
Custom infrastructure solutions are integrated at AHEAD-owned facilities and shipped ready to plug-and-play, with full visibility every step of the way in Hatch, AHEAD’s IT supply chain and lifecycle management platform.
From the Core to the Edge
AHEAD will design, build, and integrate your ideal rack infrastructure and custom rackmount systems to the smallest details for plug-and-play simplicity.
When networking is crucial to performance, we cover all the bases: servers, storage, switches, routers, and all types of passive and active gear. We also harvest key data for you about every networked component for asset tracking.
The intelligent edge is causing a substantial shift in infrastructure and workload orchestration. Our well-honed migration path securely moves application workloads onto high–efficiency platforms customized with the right CPU and storage combination to accelerate processing at the edge.
