Data Center providers are buying real estate at a rapid pace as demand for space continues to skyrocket. Of course, that’s only the first step. Building out a data center can be a long and complex process, requiring significant upfront planning and extensive expertise in multiple specialties.
Rahi has been delivering peace of mind to providers worldwide for many years. Now Rahi has a new global team of data center specialists to focus specifically on the market.
Daniel comes to Rahi with ArcTiv, a company he launched to provide data center infrastructure services in the Asia-Pacific region. Headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, the ArcTiv team is now part of Rahi, bringing new talent to that region and complementing Rahi’s global initiatives.

He held various roles, including business development and product line management, involving data center racks, PDUs, UPSs, and cable management systems. He has been in the APAC region since 2015, particularly in Southeast Asia, gaining the experience that led him to form ArcTiv.
In addition to Taipei, ArcTiv has teams in the Philippines, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and other areas. The company focuses on projects ranging from server rooms and small data centers to complete solutions that include power, cooling, racks, cable management, and raised floors.

Data Center builders and, Co-location providers have unique needs. The data center design must address not only the provider’s requirements but that of its customers. Designing elements such as the raised floor, cooling systems, overhead cable trays, and meeting rooms are focused on the provider. However, the individual leased areas could be user-specific. The racks and power may be distributed differently within those areas based upon the needs of the customer, these needs will be met effortlessly by the new Rahi global team.
Rahi has the agility to accommodate these needs. The team can offer a variety of products and services and assist customers with systems integration as well. While the red-hot co-location market is currently providing significant opportunity and results, hyperscale data centers and enterprise customers have also been engaging in the small amount of time the service has been available.
