Data Center Design
Data centers need to be planned and created for proper functioning. As per IDC, the average age of a data center is ought to be nine years, but Gartner begs to differ. Gartner states that any data center that crosses seven years becomes outdated. Post seven years, any data center creates unnecessary hurdles for organisations wanting to grow or expand and the only remaining solution is that of creating a new data center. On the one hand, the data center needs to be created fast but on the other, if there are mistakes in the creation process, the data center will fail to deliver properly.
This is where a proper blueprint and strategy is required that follows a well-defined method to build and design a new data center that will function optimally once construction is complete. There are many mistakes that people generally make which is why it is advisable to use the help of consultants to lead a proper plan of expansion. You will find several consultants in the field with many kinds of different ideas and inputs which can get overwhelming at times. The results can often be disastrous in the process, which is why it is advisable to take the inputs and map out a singular path of approach.
