A data center is a kind of facility center to house a number of computers in the purpose of data storage or telecommunication. Any visionary company would want to have their own data center. If you want to know about the basic elements of a fully functioning data center, this post is for you. Let us start, shall we?
Room Temperature Control
This is the first point because this is the most expensive and we simply can not make any mistake at controlling the data center’s room temperature. Just remember one simple mistake can jeopardize the whole structure.
We can not afford any downtime due to power cut off. That is why we try to maintain multiple options as the backup for power supply. it is very important to reserve a lion share of your budget to maintain backup options.
Why do we need a data center system? Because we want to store our data. Not entirely true. We want to securely store our data. Data security is very important. Because this is the end goal.
Round the clock monitoring
This is just the normal procedure for any system. Just in the case of a data center management, we need a steady team to monitor the system and be ready to take action at any point should the situation demands.
I have to honest about this point. I have seen many data center management teams don’t document everything, at least not properly. This is important if you want to plan in long-term.
I am only touching surface in this article. But these are the most important points. Whatever what you do just make sure you keep the tier rating up high. I will write about tire ranks sometime in the future. Stay tuned. Till then, take care.
