Go A Long Way Towards Building Successful Data Center
Contact Us To Help You Find The Solution
It probably should go without saying that the planning phase is crucial to any data center project. But the specific planning process you use will go a long way toward how successful the data center will ultimately be in delivering on the requirements it was intended to meet.
The process is intended to ensure the right decision makers get the right information at the most appropriate time. It involves just four tasks, as follows:
1. Establish key project parameters to control the system architecture and budget
2. Develop a system concept
3. Incorporate user preferences and constraints
4. Determine implementation requirements
We at KAYIMPEX can help you with designs that reflect our company’s decades of experience in the IT field – what worked and what didn’t.
Joe Reele, who heads up the Data Center Solution Architects group at Schneider Electric, put it well:
“One size does not fit all, so we realize that you’re looking for flexible solutions in everything that you do. When you buy a box of Legos, there may be instructions on how to build a race car, but really there’s nothing stopping you from building any other sort of car."
We will help you meet your specific data center needs.
If there’s a data center project in your future we will assist you with the planning process, cost analyses, site selection and best practices drawn from customers and so on
Data Center Challenges
The modern data centre is no longer tied to a physical location. Instead it is integrated into the very fabric of an organisation. Data centres are now part of a wider hybrid cloud strategy where business applications, workloads and data reside in a number of locations.
There are many options for the way a data centre can be organised and operated; public and private cloud, co-location facilities, and various levels of service for managing and monitoring different environments. Each comes with distinct benefits and challenges.
For example, if you choose to own and operate your own data centre you will have to maintain all of the equipment, employ highly skilled staff to monitor and manage the technical environment, and have a disaster recovery plan and a budget.
In many instances, outsourcing data centre hosting, management and monitoring to specialist 3rd party service provider can represent better value for money.
One potential downside of outsourcing is that certain specific application workloads may operate with limited capability which may result in costs up to 3.5 times more than on-premise platforms.
Therefore, to determine which option is best for your organisation, you need to fully understand your application workloads, related data and future business priorities.
