Data Centers

What Does a Kitchen Redesign have in Common with Data Center Planning?

Nearly 7.6 million homeowners redesign or remodel their kitchens every year. The process can be painful and costly if the kitchen is not properly planned and designed. The same holds true when planning a data center.

Typical challenges found in poor kitchen designs seem to mirror those found in data center designs: wasted space, poor lighting, inadequate ventilation and unstable power. In my custom-built kitchen, it is impossible for me to open both the dishwasher and the kitchen cabinet that stores the dishwasher soap at the same time. The dishwasher has to be closed for the cabinet to open (and vice versa).  Many data centers are also custom-built despite the higher costs and increased potential for design errors.  A lower cost, lower risk alternative is to incorporate standardized designs that apply best practices to data centers of all sizes.
