What if there was a way to cut colocation data center costs and accelerate speed to market without compromising efficiency or quality?

In the multitenant data center space, it is valuable for owners, designers/engineers, general contractors and facility/IT managers to consider new ways to address such needs.

Learn about such stakeholder challenges, their current scenarios, what considerations are taken today, market research which shows the need for a new way, and how a standardized approach can help.

Challenges & Current Scenarios


General Contractor

As a designer/engineer, how do I design the colocation data center site properly around the site owners’ many IT infrastructure needs and requirements based on data center footprint, i.e., application design for high availability, reliability, redundancy, and uptime? How do I make sure my reputation/revenue for my engineering services is not impacted by potential risks or delays in the project? How do I eliminate additional, unnecessary work from the design/engineering of a project?

 Current scenario

As a general contractor, how can I get more jobs because my price is competitive and how can I stay within my set project budget? How can I better stay on project schedule to prevent added cost? How can I ensure quality and smooth, timely project turnover to my customer (the colocation data center owner)?

 Current scenario

Data Center Owner

Data Center Manager

As a colocation data center owner, how can I manage my business growth in the rapidly growing colocation market? How can I increase revenue and be profitable? How do I differentiate myself in the market?

 Current scenario

As a data center manager or corporate facility manager, how can I maintain uptime? How can I simplify the maintenance of my building's systems and equipment, knowing that I am challenged with limited/decreased skilled engineering staff? How do I reduce CAPEX and OPEX knowing that I have a limited budget?

 Current scenario

Industry Data

What if there was a new way?

A way you could simplify some of the work and information you need/receive to account for in your design/planning specification if the commissioning piece of the project could be pre-integrated, pre-tested and pre-configured? A pre-engineered approach that provides for an entirely vetted or factory-witness test of the automation systems (BMS, DCIM, and EMPS with third-party software) early in the process? A way to achieve the speed-to-market you need while also reducing engineering time, ordering time, and cost?

Learn about the VelociRack™

Siemens VelociRack™ is an integrated, modular, factory-tested data center management approach that increases visibility in the multi-tenant space, letting owners identify and solve inefficiencies, reduce operational expenses and capital needs, and improve energy efficiency. It eliminates the need for colocation providers to invest in infrastructure without a secured tenant.

This pre-assembled and pre-engineered framework allows owners to quickly and cost-effectively meet multi-tenant needs by delivering:
• Speed-to-market                                             • Minimized design and construction costs
• Improved infrastructure scalability                  • Streamlined product ordering

Siemens’ VelociRack™ allows a general contractor’s controls provider to work in parallel with the construction process, streamlining the overall construction timeline.

For the designer/engineer, it ensures that technology system integration is accounted for during the planning/design phase, eliminating project risk. It also provides one IT and facility management ecosystem view.

Its robust, flexible data center management suite of software helps data center staff succeed in maintaining 24/7 operation. It provides optimization of facility and IT processes via end-to-end via intelligent software and lifecycle services to simplify your operations and lower your capital and operating expenses.
