Simplifying Data Center Design/ Build


Published on

When it comes to designing, building, and operating mission-critical data centers, simple is better. Data centers are faster and cheaper to build, and more reliable with lower total cost of ownership (TCO), when they start with a dramatically simplified design and build process that incorporates these elements: reference designs, pre-fabricated/modular architecture, partners that bring comprehensive capabilities into play, and coordinated planning around software, operations, and service. What you will learn: The top 5 weaknesses of today’s design/bid/build approach A simplified approach using reference designs and pre-fab products can preserve Day 1 capital and improve speed to market An integrated solution provider (Design, Build, Hardware and Operations) can optimize CapEx, OpEx and TCO.

Simplifying Data Center Design/ Build

  1. 1. 1 Simplifying Data Center Design/Build A new approach to deliver speed, cost, and performance (availability, efficiency, scalability)
  2. 2. 2 Your ability to compete relies on the design, build, and operation of your data center Whether you are an Enterprise or in the data center business
  3. 3. 3 Trends
  4. 4. 4 The Internet of Everything is driving the need for large amounts of computing power, bandwidth and storage Source: Cisco IBSG, April 2011 Number of connections Number of meaningful interactions It would take you 5 years to view the video crossing IP networks each second
  5. 5. 5 IT Trends Social technologies Servers Cloud without UPS computing Energy consciousness Lower tiers Mobile devices Converged IT Prefabricated modular data centers New cooling techniques Relaxed operating standards Colocation Rising security concerns
  6. 6. 6 The move to Cloud Computing is reinforcing the need for speed, cost, and performance Promises made by cloud providers >lower costs >more modularity and portability >instant scalability and capacity >greater application flexibility and portability
  7. 7. 7 Room for improvement in performance, cost, and speed In today’s traditional Design/Bid/Build processes Top 5 Weaknesses 1. Long design time leading up to construction documents 2.Multiple design and/or equipment changes drive up cost and construction time 3.Multiple vendor management 4.Multiple markups driving higher overall cost 5.Coordination and integration challenges increasing both cost and construction time Lower Performance Higher Cost Slower Speed
