Learn about the central issues that tend to be consistent across all Request for Proposals (RFPs) and see what questions you should be asking in order to maximize the efficiency of your mission critical data center.
A high percentage of today’s data centers use water-based cooling methods. Although evaporative cooling, whether through traditional towers or “advanced” adiabatic cooling systems (aka swamp coolers), remain highly effective cooling methods, when you’re planning a new data center you may want to consider the impact of the weather and water availability on your decision.
The purpose of this white paper is to describe the provider thinking and product elements that must be addressed to change the data center selection process from one that is tactical to one that is strategic in nature.
A high percentage of today’s data centers use water-based cooling methods to keep them from becoming the equivalent of a Hopi sweatbox in the desert. When you’re planning a new data center you may want to consider the impact of the weather and water availability on your decision.
The world of data centers and IT has been historically been one of gradual evolution, but events and capabilities that have emerged over the past 3-5 years present both a challenge, and opportunity to the IT organization. Click here to read about the IT Metamorphosis.
