    Data Center Challenges
    The heartbeat of any organization is in the data center. Employees, partners,and customers rely on data and resources in the Data Center to effectively create, collaborate, and interact. Over the last decade, the rise of Internet and Web-based technologies has made the data center more strategic than ever, improving productivity, enhancing business processes, and accelerating change. Data centers are the strategic focus of IT efforts to protect, optimize and grow the business
    Data center managers face several challenges in fulfilling these goals. Most enterprise data centers grew rapidly to meet the explosive economic growth of the previous decade. Consequently, applications commonly stand alone in underutilized, isolated infrastructure silos. Each infrastructure silo is designed based on the inclination of the specific application being deployed, so that a typical data center supports a broad assortment of operating systems, computing platforms, and storage systems. The disparate infrastructures supporting different application “islands” are difficult to change or expand and expensive to manage, integrate, secure, and back up.

    Data Center Design
    Discovery Process to properly determine the specification and requirements of this project. Areas of research will include determining the following:
    • General technology review
    • Pathways for horizontal and riser distribution
    • Horizontal telecommunications cabling requirements for both voice and data
    • Riser telecommunications requirements
    • MC & ER layout requirements to determine rack/cabinet locations and cable support/management requirements
    • Equipment rack/cabinet layouts, i.e. equipment placement, patch panel placement and wire management

    Drawings
    Netflow will submit all prints and written documents in electronic format. The following prints are typical of a complete set:
        Riser Drawing - This print will represent the riser requirements for voice and data between floors and will show pathways, cable types and appropriate sizing.
        MC (Main Cross-Connect) - This print will be the layout of the MC room. The print will show racks/cabinets positioning, any cable support necessary such as ladder racking, any wall boards to be installed and riser entrance points.
        ER (Equipment Room) - This print will be the layout of the ER room. The print will show racks/cabinets positioning, any cable support necessary such as ladder racking, any wall boards to be installed and riser entrance points.
        Rack/Cabinet Elevations - This print will show elevation details for the general layout of the racks/cabinets as pertaining to the telecommunications needs of this project.
