Designing data center to meet current and future business requirements
Deploying data center as per design specifications
Managing data centers
Complete audit of data center NCPI factors
Data center educational program
Customer Challenge Data centers are an increasingly complex mix of network-critical physical infrastructure (NCPI), IT infrastructure, and for a good measure disaster recovery/business continuity planning (DR/BCP). Any data center that is designed without a total lifecycle approach is bound to create a huge vacuum in terms of future expandability and the associated costs will definitely escalate. Ensuring return on investment (ROI) is crucial for the business sustainability of a data center. Choice Value Proposition Choice has expert data center design consultants who are certified by various data center institutions. Rest assured the complete data center lifecycle starting with the assessment all the way up to the management can be undertaken by this team of experts.

What you are looking for?
Agility: The DC has to Agile.
Adaptability: The DC should be Adaptable for most upcoming IT Boxes.
Scalable: the DC should be ready for Day “1” to day “X” as and when required.
Modular Equipments: The DC Equipments should be Modular and should be easy for replacement/relocation.
Manageable: ease to manage the Data Center’s each Active Component.
Building the Modern Data Centre
The Physical Infrastructure determines the actual build out of the Data centre. This can be broadly classified as -
Architectural (Design, Layout) Power (Utility, Backup) Cooling (CRAC) Rack System Monitoring and Management (SNMP/BMS based) Cabling (Power, Network) Environmental Physical Security Fire Detection Suppression
Architectural Design, Layout :
Based Upon Pre-Sales dialogs and feasibility with customer; our Solution Architects prepares few design layouts and solutions which materialized with BOM freeze by them.
This team also does customer’s need assessment, understands the essential requirement and budget.
The design, layout prepared as per best practices, Space optimization and highly agile.
Design consideration also takes care of complete DC lifecycle.
Design Tools Expatriation: Microsoft Visio, AutoCAD
Few designs which implemented by Choice are ……….

DC management – Control and Monitoring
Management of all components and parameters is of utmost importance for the DC manager
Management design should be a single point of control and monitoring of all the equipments such as
