12 Elements of a Successful Data Center Facility
Many businesses today are relying on outdated equipment and aging infrastructure to run their data centers. These aging data centers were designed in a different compute era and simply cannot meet today's power, cooling, redundancy and other technology requirements.
Consider this information when you read about the 12 keys to a successful data center facility in the SlideShare presentation below:
Companies should grow vertically before horizontally to reduce the amount of floor space and number of cabinets needed.
A higher power density reduces an organization’s overall footprint requirement.
The colder a data center, the higher your energy bills.
Maximizing return temperatures at cooling units can save 35 to 50 percent on cooling energy costs.
Removing one watt of power on the IT side results in almost three watts of total power savings.
