Mission Critical Magazine’s 2019 January/February issue takes a deep dive into mission critical facility design as well as the challenges of managing capacity, and another installment of our panel discussion on the state of the data center industry with three industry thought leaders.
Design system sequencing to endure extreme conditions. Initial planning and design decisions for a 9-1-1 call center relate to technical issues that keep a center’s systems functioning during emergencies threatening its operation.
Across a wide range of industries and applications, the world’s data needs continue to expand at an unprecedented rate. From finance to oil and gas to health care to agriculture, data has become a vital component of day-to-day operations across all industries; as data needs increase, so too does the pressure on mission critical systems to support data storage and processing.
The mission critical industry has been growing rapidly the last few years and is expected to continue strong for the foreseeable future. To what do you attribute that growth and how long might it continue?
Over the last two years, we have been inundated by requests from wholesale and colocation clients to help develop winning proposals supporting hyperscale tenants. While each proposal we develop is customized to the hyperscale tenant, there are similarities and differences among each request.
The panel discussion featured Carrie Goetz, RCDD, CDCS, CDCP, global director of technology for Paige DataCom Solutions; Enoch Moeller hardware operations site manager for Google; and Kylash Ramesh, management analyst, Division of Facilities Operations & Maintenance for the National Institutes of Health.
The critical facilities industry relies on industry standards to establish the minimum requirements necessary to design, build, and operate critical sites. Some of these standards get adopted by federal, state, and local governments through legislation as enforceable codes.
