  • About the client:

    Upstack company acts as an intermediate between potential customers and suppliers of DC services around the United States, such as colocation, dedicated servers, cloud servers, managed hosting, IP transit, and other hosting services

  • Challenge:

    Our task was to develop a platform tailored to serve the data center marketplace, emphasizing colocation and IP transit. Additionally, the platform needed to encompass various other data center services, including wholesale space, dedicated servers, remote hands, and internet exchanges.

    Upstack envisioned the data center marketplace web application as the premier destination for providers and in-market buyers of data center services statewide. The goal was to streamline data processing and user interactions, making it effortless for users to navigate and access a wide range of services.

  • Technologies:

    Ruby on Rails / React / Sidekiq / Puma / Devise / PostgreSQL / Heroku

Solutions

Our dedicated development team conducted a comprehensive analysis and came up with a solution that brings maximum personalization to the data-center management software and online marketplace.

We’ve been building an application that combines key features of classic and contest marketplaces. The platform lets data center service providers and buyers get custom solutions by launching a complex search system.

This Software as a Service (SaaS) platform seamlessly and efficiently accommodates growth. It is designed to be scalable and capable of handling substantial user traffic without causing disruptions for end-users.

Convenient search and filters

Our dedicated team implemented a sophisticated search feature for the data center marketplace, allowing users to search using a variety of filters. This system significantly enhances the search process, making it more convenient and faster. It employs advanced filtering and search logic, which dynamically adapts to changing rules, enabling users to find objects of various types from the expanding database of data center service providers.

Extended functionality

  • The search engine clarifies and analyzes a user’s requirements to identify the project goal and provides a result page with selected vendors.
  • Integrated Google Maps so users can easily find nearby data-center service providers.
  • When a user requests a configuration about companies, he can get a response in the form of comparative charts.
  • The user gets to the price review page and sees all the price quotes sent to him by the selected companies. A user can sort them, build charts and modalities, and export data to CSV.
