CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., June 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Equus today hosted city officials, customers and employees at the grand opening of its newly expanded and updated production facility in City of Industry, Calif., a 102,000 square-foot facility featuring office and showroom space as well as an expansive production floor. Equus companies—including Equus Computing Systems, Intequus and Servers Direct—can now take advantage of the additional room and increased production capabilities to further improve the efficiency of its design and build of custom-configured servers and storage devices to meet growing customer demand from data center customers.
"Our new City of Industry facility prepares us for strong growth," said Andy Juang, president and chief executive officer of Equus. "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."
In addition to having the necessary space for rapid hardware development and shipment, the new facility has the capability to connect with customer data networks directly from the factory floor. This connection allows customers to image and reimage their new hardware before it even leaves the Equus facility, enabling easier installation when the products arrive at their final destination.
Equus Computing Systems delivers custom computing solutions to value added resellers (VARs), independent software vendors (ISVs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Equus specializes in developing build-to-order computing systems to fit precise customer needs and provides end-to-end service support from installation to system repairs and maintenance.
Intequus specializes in providing custom-configured data center infrastructure for the cloud and hosting market and hardware appliances for ISVs. The company believes that unlike traditional enterprise IT, public cloud service providers and data center solutions providers do not want to pay for branded and more proprietary hardware solutions from traditional tier-one original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Instead, Intequus provides custom industry-standard Intel-based servers, storage and network appliances configured to customers' exacting standards, priced aggressively, and supported by exceptional customer service and great logistics.
Servers Direct, another division of Equus, also operates from the new facility. Since 2003, Servers Direct has provided advanced, custom server and storage systems to online IT customers.
