Minkels global rack supplier Hitachi
“The Hitachi brand name stands for quality, Minkels’ product and service quality are a perfect fit,” says Paul Veldkamp, Director Global CTO of Hitachi Data Systems. The workmanship of their data centre racks is superb and it matches well with the highly valued Hitachi product. The modular design of their racks also offers many configuration adjustment options.”
HDS asked the engineers from Minkels to design a completely new rack for its high-end data storage systems. Veldkamp: “Minkels designed the necessary custom details, specifically for our high-end solution systems. Their engineers came up with a click system in order to easily match the sizes in the data centre rack specifically to our equipment. I am happy that they help us to come up with ideas and to quickly turn those ideas into actions. Since we started using the Minkels racks, we now have a lot less damage due to transport. The racks provide a lot of stability and our customers are very satisfied.”
