Data Center Design Standards

​IT systems are critical for the day-to-day operations of today’s organizations. Typically, IT systems within an organization are housed at a centralized location often referred to as the “server room” or the “data center.”
With many organizations experiencing continued server sprawl or a significant increase in virtual machines, there are increased pressures on the data center in terms of cooling, electrical, airflow, and capacity. Whether you’re building a new data center, evaluating your existing internal data center, or evaluating a hosted (commonly referred to as “colo”) data center, being proactive in assessing the environment and capacity of the data center can have a significant impact on the uptime, thus impacting efficiency and effectiveness of an organization’s IT operations and thus, the overall business.
