A datacenre can be an expensive and complex solution to set up. So many considerations for in-house teams, both in the planning and implementation. It means staff time is taken up with getting things planned, built and problems solved and time can be lost from strategic projects.
A datacentre houses all your critical IT systems including telecommunications and storage, as well as a host of other functions and components such as back-up power supplies, environmental control and fire prevention. A large data centre can be an industrial scale operation and may use as much power as a small town! So you can see why such an important part of your IT infrastructure, even on a small scale, will need careful planning and the right support to make sure it’s an effective part of your system.
It also needs to be secure and planning for disaster and business continuity, should the worst happen, is a crucial part of building and managing a datacentre for your business. Remember all your critical systems and storage may be in your centre! Environmental control to ensure that components don’t overheat or get damp need to be part of your datacentre plan as well as making sure you secure it from tampering, theft or fire.
