Webinar - Data Center Design: Imparting Lessons Learned
In a this webcast, “Data Center Design: Lessons Learned,” a former chief information officer who has lived through many data center projects provides a run down on some important lessons learned, including:
- Proper site selection is crucial, taking a broad view of everything that might impact data center operation. I know of one project where the data center was flooded by a burst water pipe from an adjacent bathroom. Are factors like the location of water pipes, or local zoning ordinances that might impact after hours deliveries, or the possibility that nearby construction might tear up a power line, being considered as part of your data center design? They should be.
Check out the webcast for more of these tips. With data center design/build projects, it’s important to at least have an appreciation for this range of best practices. Don’t assume every commercial builder or architect has this knowledge. Ultimately, it’s important for operators to have a trusted advisor for data center projects, while having more understanding for the range of factors that should be considered.
