Designing a data center can be a daunting and complicated process. There are many considerations and decisions that impact the cost to build, operate and scale the data center.
A central aspect of successful holistic design involves carefully considering all the variables with an eye on operational expenditure over the life of the data center, not just on the capital expenditure to build the data center in the first place. Holistic design must also account for business growth and evolving technology, incorporating systems and innovative technologies that ensure an agile, scalable and robust data center that supports both current and future needs.
Successful holistic data center design requires following key steps that take into account all business requirements, technology innovations, and energy and operational savings, while identifying and eliminating any ineffective decisions and operational waste.
