  6. 6. •  Data Center projects should follow a direction: from bigger pay checks down to the technical pay checks •  Jokes apart, a correct understand of business requirements is mandatory for a successful deployment (on time, on budget) •  Those business requirements needs to be translated to a technical solution, a data center architecture (High Level Design) •  Once a high level architecture is created, a list of material could be carved and shared with your company procurement staff •  Experience shows higher costs when the approach is bottom-up© 2011 Cisco and/or its affiliates.

What does High Availability mean to your Data Center?Tier 4 DC – Fault Tolerant: 99.995% Tier 3 DC – Fault Tolerant: 99.982%§  Planned Activity does not disrupt critical load §  Enables planned activity without disrupting and DC can sustain at least one worst-case computer hardware operation, but unplanned unplanned event with no critical load impact events will still cause disruption§  Multiple power and cooling distribution paths §  Multiple power and cooling distribution paths includes redundant but with only one path active, includes redundant components§  Annual Downtime = 24 minutes §  Annual Downtime = 1 hour 36 minutesTier 2 DC – Fault Tolerant: 99.741% Tier 1 DC – Fault Tolerant: 99.671%§  Less susceptible to disruption from both §  Susceptible to disruptions from both planned planned and unplanned activity and unplanned activity§  Single path for power and cooling disruption §  Single path for power and cooling distribution, no redundant components§  Maintenance of power path and other parts of the infrastructure require a processing §  Must be shut down completely to perform shutdown preventive maintenance§  Annual downtime = 22.0 hours §  Annual downtime = 1 day 4 hours© 2011 Cisco and/or its affiliates.
