The Design Engineers at DSI Solutions Dubai evaluate the following criteria to ensure that the client gets the safest and best functional data center.
Room for Expansion
Many businesses create a data center design that meets their current needs, but don’t invest in the future. Our team of experts at DSI Solutions Dubai takes into consideration the following points when looking at the needs your company will have down the road;
Floor Space, Power Requirements, Cooling Requirements, Server Space.
Dynamic infrastructure provides the ability to intelligently, automatically and securely move workloads within a data center anytime, anywhere, for migrations, provisioning, to enhance performance, or building co-location facilities. It also facilitates performing routine maintenance on either physical or virtual systems all while minimizing interruption. A related concept is Composable infrastructure, which allows for the dynamic reconfiguration of the available resources to suit needs, only when needed.
Optimize Data Center Cooling
One of the most important things taken into consideration while designing a data center is to keep the operating equipment at appropriate temperatures. Most popular types of cooling systems available are Traditional Air Conditioning, Water Cooling Units, Outdoor Air cooling, Localized Cooling.
A smart airflow plan can reduce the cooling expenses by as much as 40%. Our team at DSI Solutions Dubai suggests multiple steps in planning out airflow strategy such as Main Intake & Exhaust, Server Rack Airflow, and Segmented Aisles.
Physical access is usually restricted. Layered security often starts with fencing, bollards and mantraps. Video camera surveillance and permanent security guards are almost always present if the data center is large or contains sensitive information. Fingerprint recognition mantraps is starting to be commonplace. Investing in enclosed server racks also helps in long term data center physical security. These server racks help to prevent both theft and potential damage, as they are typically lockable. Data center managers can control who truly has access to the servers.
Without a good wiring plan in place, a data center can become a huge mess very quickly. Using horizontal or vertical cable managers can help tremendously with this. Next, the cables must be run neatly to where they are going. This typically means running them either under the flooring or in the ceiling, depending on the data center design. In all of these areas, our trained team at DSI Solutions Dubai makes sure to properly label the cables on both ends for easier troubleshooting.
