Data Centre Planning
Step One in DCR’s data centre design / build process starts with the Planning Phase.
DCR builds a five year growth model for your proposed data centre environment based on your organizations business plan encompassing both today’s current requirements and that of the future.
Utilizing this model, DCR will provide you a full evaluation report that includes all elements of the data centre environment including; space, electrical, mechanical, network along with equipment layout drawings, cost estimates and a proposed construction schedule.
Core steps in the Planning Phase include;
- Identify Client Needs
- Client Design Recommendations
- Establish Current Requirements
- Understand Future Requirements
- Determine High Level Cost Model
- Real Estate Evaluation
- Critical System Analysis (electrical, mechanical, network, etc.)
The Planning phase becomes the detailed path to the evolution of your data centre build.
The next phase in our process is the Data Centre Design phase.
