Delivery of transaction advisory services requires consultants that understand the unique perspective of the buyer, seller or tenant. We combine technical expertise with our ability to listen and understand what is important to you providing a bespoke service with your end in mind. Comparing service level agreements, operational expertise and risk against the physical attributes of the facility requires our specific expertise and understanding.
Advisory and planning services from Total IT Solutions are designed to help take you seamlessly throughout the different stages of the data center life-cycle. Leveraging an independent perspective can help you get clarity on complex projects, while supplementing your in-house expertise. We can look at both mid and long-range planning and assist management teams in establishing the priorities for their mission critical infrastructure.
Capacity planning, analysis of existing infrastructure, colocation advisory, and cloud consulting are all part of our services. We can evaluate single assets as well as larger, multi-asset portfolios.
The data center and cloud infrastructure industry has been transformed by technology advancements. And, as industries change, goals and targets evolve, too. Our technical advisory services will ensure you get an advocate and partner who listens, is able to “see with your eyes” and can deliver detailed technical consultations during new builds, retrofits, or facility upgrades. We pair business domain knowledge with technical account management to assess projects in any phase, perform the what-if analysis and deliver the Capex and Opex forecasts that your team needs to make sound decisions.
Working as part of your team, we bring in a cross-functional skill set to help you get the maximum ROI out of every project.
We have the expertise to help make your data center project a success, with extensive experience in transactions spanning across geographic markets. We understand the nuance between traditional colocation data centers, hybrid IT infrastructure, and cloud data centers, and we can help you be strategic in terms of your acquisitions and leases.
We can often help negotiate improved contractual terms, and we believe that transparency in site valuations and transactional details ensures that all parties get a fair deal that protects their profit. Our model positions us to work with your in-house finance team, with other consultants or investment bankers, advisors, or independently.
In the initial phases of critical facility construction, our team works with you to ensure you the site you choose for your data center supports long term value for your investment. More than just simply a real estate transaction, site selection discussions will encompass the utility negotiation, rate analysis, entitlements, network connectivity, the physical environment (including average ambient temperatures and likelihood of natural disasters), substation planning, water and other local utilities, and project specific factors identified by client.
We also partner with you to identify economic incentives, like sales tax exemptions, or advantageous power pricing.
Because data center investments represent a significant amount of capital, organizations should conduct detailed due diligence. You must understand how existing facilities might be reconfigured or virtualized to increase capacity and what future demands for capacity look like. Understanding how capacity impacts application availability is also critical in the due diligence process, and modular builds can sometimes be a way to add critical infrastructure that is less resource intensive.
Construction costs, power capacity and utilization, increased needs for cooling, logistics of sharing facilities with multiple anchor tenants, security, operations, and logistics must all be taken into consideration.
Pro Forma financial statements are prepared in advance of a planned transaction, like a new capital investment for a data center build, an acquisition of a new facility, or a merger between two existing organizations. We can help to vet out the revenue, cost, CapEx and Opex impacts of your proposed transaction. Looking at the future economic state of mission critical infrastructure is an essential part of understanding the financial viability of any data center. We can create, validate, or analyze pro formas working hand in hand with your internal team, third party investors, debt finance providers and traditional banking underwriters.
