A Holistic Approach to Data Center Design-Build Projects
Client-Centric, Consultative Methodology.
End-to-End Program Designed to Ensure Project Success
The best solution for any specific data center is not driven by “guidelines” or “rules-of-thumb.” Instead, modern design-for-demand and design-for-efficiency plans leverage an honest assessment of organizational up-time needs, a clear vision of IT systems history and projected growth, and a thorough understanding of the components influencing efficient design.
BRUNS-PAK created Synthesis2‚ a client-centric, consultative methodology for requirements development and project management. Our proprietary process delivers an end-to-end program designed to ensure project success:
An evaluation defines what the data center facility is, explains the technical options, and compares your facility to others in your industry. Preliminary budget costs and schedules for recommendations. The evaluation includes analysis of:
- Infrastructure Elements
Data Center infrastructure complexity makes the ongoing life cycle management a daunting task. Many systems have innumerable components to manage to keep your data center functioning, ranging from servers to cooling to power delivery equipment. If one piece of equipment fails, it could cost you valuable business. Managing the life cycle of your data center equipment must be done in a way that optimizes performance while reducing downtime and mitigating risk. It has become industry best practice to review every data center on a regular basis to ensure reliability and compliance.
With BRUNS-PAK’s proven process, the outcome of this assessment would enable you to report to your business, which critical infrastructure assets will reach end of life in their expectant end of useful life in the next 5 – 10 years. The assessment will also look at “in-kind” replacements vs. upgrades as applicable and provide timelines and budget estimates which will enable you to earmark funding in future budget cycles.
Single Point of Failure Assessment
A Single Point of Failure (SPoF) is a single, and sometimes small event or failure, of a single infrastructure component that can halt your entire data center operation. A data center without an up to date or accurate short circuit coordination study can be susceptible to a cascading electrical failure. Often times, the actual outage associated with these failures are not long lasting, however, due to the logistics and processes involved in restoring data center services, the impacts of these outages could several hours longer.
Our deliverable provide you with a risk matrix that categorizes the impact and likelihood of every potential SPoF that is discovered. Our ranking system immediately surfaces the trouble points with the most potential to take out your operations, allowing you to prioritize the repairs and plan for capital expenses.
