(The 90's called... they want their data center back)

Should you consider upgrading your legacy data center? Ten years ago, yours was a state of the art data center. At a height of twelve inches, the raised floor was more than adequate to deliver enough supply air to cool a heat density of 75 to 100 watts per square foot, while accommodating a sea of power and data cables. Monolithic CRAC units were lined up along the perimeter of the room like a rectangular Stonehenge, pushing air at tens of thousands of cubic-feet per minute (CFM) in an effort to achieve an ambient temperature around 70ºF. The UPS utilized the latest technology, boasting efficiencies above 90% as long as the load was at least 50% of the rated capacity. Your data center might have even included N+1 redundancy. You may still remember that new data center smell…

Data Center Design-Build vs. Design-Bid-Build

Posted by Kim Otte on Sep 30, 2011

I just saw an interesting article on "A tale of two U.S. government data center projects" where one project came in on-time and within budget and one went over budget and was late. The moral from the story is that the project that went over budget used the Design-Bid-Build (traditional bid/spec) approach and the one that came in on-time and within budget opted for a design/build approach – where you have a single point of contact and that contact is very familiar with the project from the start and can make any necessary changes fairly quick.  Many times, as in the case of the over budget project, when a problem arises you have to negotiate with multiple teams to get things fixed which more often than not results in delays.
