The Essential Guide to Upgrading Your Data Center

With the rise in data and application usage, many businesses require a power or space upgrade to add capacity to the data center. The next step is deciding whether to begin an upgrade project or move to a colocation data center.

FIBERTOWN, Houston data center and colocation services provider, published a new instruction guide to creating an efficient and sustainable corporate data center. The Essential Guide to Upgrading Your Data Center is a detailed e-book that helps IT departments avoid missteps and ensure every component is considered when planning for power, cooling and network upgrades.

“With the rise in data and application usage, many businesses require a power or space upgrade to add capacity to the data center. The next step is deciding whether to begin an upgrade project or move to a colocation data center,” said Joe Langston, vice president of facility operations at FIBERTOWN.

The Essential Guide to Upgrading Your Data Center walks through how to plan, design and execute a data center upgrade. It describes how to ensure steps are not missed and redundancies are put in place, including:

  • How to determine power requirements
  • What equipment should be maintained and on what schedule
  • Cooling system options and maximizing efficiencies
  • Physical security and access controls
  • Optimum connectivity and network design
  • How to monitor systems to quickly address issues

“Our expertise and decade of experience operating high performance data centers provides a unique perspective to ensure mission critical systems are always running at the upmost level of efficiency,” Langston said.

According to the Ponemon Institute, 55 percent of data center outages are caused by UPS battery failure with human error slightly less at 48 percent. Proper data center design and regular maintenance can help prevent most causes of downtime. The survey showed that 43 percent agreed that most unplanned outages are preventable.
