Wiring Cabela’s Data Center for Success

Cabelas-1

As an undisputed leader in the outdoor equipment business, Cabela’s has developed a reputation for high quality outdoor products, showroom-style retail stores, and world-class customer service. So, it seems fitting that the World’s Foremost Outfitter should have the world’s foremost data center. When it came time for Cabela’s to construct its data center, the company asked Miller Electric to design and install it because they knew that Miller could provide the same attention to detail, forward-looking design, and first-rate customer service that Cabela’s is known for.

Cabela’s needed a data center capable of safely, quietly and efficiently processing its large volume of monthly business. Through our work on other data center projects for capacious companies like Cabela’s, we knew this highly technical project would call for an intimate knowledge of the bandwidth, cooling, and electrical demands of large data centers.

“We’ve done so many data center projects that we now generate many of the best practices in the industry,” said Miller Electric Project Manager Brian Reiling. “We work hand in hand with engineers sharing our knowledge about everything from high level design to everyday details like setting up racks with high density boards.” Miller’s expertise shows up in the forward-looking framework and multiple redundancies we install into the data centers we design. Unfortunately, it’s common for other installers to create data centers that are too small and too slow to keep pace with technology. By contrast, Miller certifies data centers against obsolescence.

They made sure our system will perform at its current level for the next 20 years. With the data center that Miller designed for us, we’ll stay up and running and keeping our customers satisfied, and nothing is more important to us than that.
