Building the right just amount of data center space has become more crucial due to the capital restrictions of the economic downturn. To address that scenario, Lee Technologies today introduced Lee Genesys, an assessment service helps clients define their data center infrastructure requirements and avoid overbuilding.
"The Lee Genesys approach provides a critical first step for data center clients," said George Newstrom, chief operating officer of Lee Technologies. "In 25 years of developing and maintaining data centers around the world, the most common mistakes we’ve seen involve customers overbuilding or over-complicating the engineering of facility infrastructures, which usually means they end up paying too much for something that they don’t fully utilize and then have to pay even more to maintain. This program helps clients avoid all that waste."
Assessing data center capacity needs and building in phases has become more critical due to the capital restrictions of the economic downturn, new government mandates — including policies from the Office of Management and Budget — and increasing market demands for green solutions.
"For public sector organizations facing new policy requirements and intense budget pressures, the value provided by the Lee Genesys program is especially timely," said Anthony Rizzo, senior vice president, Public Sector at Lee Technologies. "As government organizations seek to meet new demands that their data centers be more cost- and energy-efficient, we look forward to working closely with them to deliver highly thorough assessments and comprehensive solutions."
The Lee Genesys program focuses on helping clients avoid common mistakes in data center planning. After completion of the assessment, clients receive a customized road map for the development of energy- and cost-efficient data center solutions.
