What are some of the services we can offer?
For data centers not yet built, we can help you with your site evaluation, selection and planning. Not every site is the same and some are more fit to be turned into data centers than others. Some of the factors that go into choosing a site include available electrical and fibre connections, its geographic location, as well as numerous other considerations. What equipment will you need to run your data center effectively? How can you best transform your empty shell into a humming data center? Space Planning can help you determine the answers to these kinds of questions.
Existing data centers have many areas that can benefit from consultation as well. We can provide reliability studies to help determine how stable your data center environment is. “Hybrid” assessments are an exciting new strategy for data storage that involves blending private and public cloud services to help mitigate disaster recovery. Relocation or Merger/Consolidation Evaluations can help you determine whether your data center is best left where it is, or whether a move could help reduce costs while increasing profitability.
Other consulting services include Single Point of Failure Analysis, Data Center Facility Audits, DR Facility Requirement Studies, LEED Certification Analysis, Colo/Cloud Analysis, Container/Pod Studies, Network Analysis/Wi-Fi Analysis, Total Cost of Ownership Studies, Virtualization Integration, Computer Equipment Planning, Requirements Analysis, Preliminary Program Studies, Thermal Air Flow Analysis, Energy Efficiency Audits, IT Business Impact Analysis, Site Assessment Evaluations, Facility Evaluations and IT/Data Center Strategic Planning.
Our creative and flexible design solutions utilize state-of-the-art practices to produce drawings and specifications that fit your needs.
