The modern data center has become one of the core components of any company. In fact, because of technologies around cloud computing, IT consumerization and big data – data center platforms are growing at a very rapid pace. So what does your organization do when it’s time to make that data center buying or expansion decision? Does your organization have both the infrastructure resources as well as the budget to deploy the data center that the business needs?
Planning an extension to the life of a data center that appears to be out of cooling and power is not merely a matter of eliminating hot spots and recapturing stranded capacity to supply a static environment. After all, when data center managers are forecasting hitting a capacity wall, they are envisioning some continued growth to support the business’ mission critical activities. This growth is a combination of increased traffic, incremental applications, and technology refreshes. However, all these stimuli for growth do not necessarily translate directly to a linear growth in IT power and cooling load.
