ServerLIFT Helps IT Personnel Move Equipment Efficiently and Safely
Fremont, Calif. — July 17, 2017 — Rahi Systems and ServerLIFT announced today that they have entered into an exclusive agreement through which Rahi will distribute ServerLIFT products in the Chinese market. ServerLIFT manufacturers automated lifts that are designed to move IT equipment safely and efficiently in a data center environment.
As part of the agreement Rahi Systems will provide inventory, support, and services. Customers have the option to buy or lease equipment. ServerLIFT products on average, help reduce the installation time of equipment by at least 40%, reduce workplace injuries and ensure that IT assets are installed and operated correctly.
“Efficiency is the name of the game in today’s data center operations. Given the dynamic nature of the IT environment, organizations need tools that can help them quickly unpack, transport and install rack-mounted equipment, and move it around as needed,” said Vivian Qi, Operations Manager, Rahi Systems. “ServerLIFT’s products speed the installation process, enabling one or two people to do the work of an entire team — often in half the time. And because it can transport and lift equipment weighing up to 453 kilograms, ServerLIFT reduces the risk that IT personnel will be injured when moving equipment, or that the equipment will be damaged.”
The agreement announced today reflects the growing relationship between Rahi and ServerLIFT. The two companies had previously announced distribution agreements covering the Southeast Asia Region, along with India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and other neighboring countries. Rahi has also signed a partner agreement with Daxten, a leading specialist in data center optimization, to resell the complete ServerLIFT product line in the Turkish market. Rahi offers ServerLIFT products in the U.S. under a reseller agreement.
“We are very pleased to partner with Rahi Systems, and continue to expand our relationship geographically,” said Steve Bashkin, Director of Sales, ServerLIFT. “Rahi’s expertise in data center infrastructure design and implementation is a natural fit for us. We believe our solutions bring added value to Rahi’s enterprise and service provider customers.”
