Data Center Requirements
A Data Center Design needs to incorporate client requirements as well as industry standard requirements. IT operations are a vital aspect of most organizational operations around the globe. One of the main concerns is business continuity. Companies rely on their information systems to run their operations. If a system becomes unavailable, company operations may be impaired or stopped completely. It is critical to provide a reliable infrastructure for IT operations, in order to minimize any chance of disruption. Information security is also a vital concern, and for this reason a data center has to offer a secure environment which minimizes the chances of a security breach. A data center must keep high standards for assuring the integrity and functionality of its Internet connectivity and hosted computer environment. This is accomplished through redundancy of both connectivity and power.
The Telecommunication Industry has an Association whereby standards are set. Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Centers, specifies the minimum requirements for telecommunications infrastructure of data centers and computer rooms including single tenant enterprise data centers and multi-tenant Internet hosting data centers.
Standardization means integrated building and equipment engineering and while meeting code standards. Modularity has the benefits of planning for scalability and quick growth, even when future forecast requirements are less than optimal. For these reasons, telecommunications data centers should be planned in repetitive building blocks of equipment, and associated power and support (conditioning) equipment when practical. The use of dedicated centralized systems requires more accurate forecasts of future requirements to prevent expensive over construction, or even under construction that fails to meet future needs.
