In our constantly evolving modern business landscape, many companies have placed their confidence in Modular Data Centers. These disaster recovery sites play a crucial role in business continuity and helping businesses fulfill their IT requirements.
Reliability is at the heart of business continuity and Data Centers are built to maintain maximum uptime & ensure round-the-clock application availability. To accomplish this, there is a significant investment in critical infrastructure. The investment and support generally comprise power systems, uninterruptible power supply, environmental monitoring & control, HVACs, CRACs, precision cooling systems, fire suppression, backup generators, and reliable connections to external networks & power grids.
Consider the consequences of a failure/malfunction in a single component, such as a CRAC or UPS module. This may quickly escalate into increased heat density surrounding the server racks or some servers even going offline. If this issue is not quickly identified and remedied, it could lead to irreversible damage to infrastructure, which will entail additional expenses, loss of data, or application downtime.
Data Center infrastructure redundancy provides an adequate backup in case of unplanned power outages or a single point of failures (SPOFs). Additionally, this helps eliminate downtime related to components and support infrastructure failures. Our Modular Data Center solution provides redundancy options for all subsystems, allowing for continuous operations and remedial maintenance. Each component can be designed to provide various levels of redundancy as required to meet your availability needs.
To ensure the robustness of your Modular Data Center, it is essential to select reliable components. Uninterruptible power supply (UPS), remote power panels (RPP), power distribution units (PDU), and switchgear can all experience an SPOF, which could lead to a disaster within the system.
Our team can help you in selecting the most reliable and appropriate power supply components, which offer the right level of redundancy and would not limit your Data Center’s scalability while achieving your availability goals in a cost-effective way.
The Uptime Institute published a survey identifying human error as the primary cause of 70% of all Data Center problems, ranging from unplanned downtimes to expensive and often devastating security breaches. This may stem from a multitude of factors, such as a lack of understanding of equipment, inability to follow procedures, or negligence.
An essential element of maintaining your data center’s operability, efficiency, and profitability while avoiding human error-caused incidences is having a DCIM plan in place. With the right DCIM strategy, you can optimize your site-space utilization, infrastructure, equipment, and power usage by gaining a holistic view of your facility’s performance metrics.
Underutilization of spaces can become a liability to the Data Center stakeholders. By employing the right DCIM strategy, Data Center managers can pinpoint and recognize unused spaces in their facility. This enables IT or support infrastructure expansion without the added costs of civil works or site preparation.
DCIM provides early identification of minor problems before they escalate. These problems may simply be a minor update or equipment repair. Which, if delayed, can potentially inflict huge expenses, like major replacements, outages or downtime. Acting on the intelligence from DCIM analysis can become a major contributor to creating a highly profitable Data Center.
