  1. 1. Data Center Lifecycle <ul><li>Our Services </li></ul><ul><li>Assessing physical space assigned for data center </li></ul><ul><li>Designing data center to meet current and future business requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Deploying data center as per design specifications </li></ul><ul><li>Managing data centers </li></ul><ul><li>Complete audit of data center NCPI factors </li></ul><ul><li>Data center educational program </li></ul>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.
