This course is a basic introduction for Modular Datacenter Security Room Assembly Processes, which is a section of the Cabling Technology that deals with the science that applies and develops Construction Processes in the Modular Datacenters Security Rooms. This guide provides insight and direction for the proper construction of Modular Datacenter.
Datacenters seldom meet the operational and capacity requirements of their initial designs. The principal goals in datacenter design are flexibility and scalability, which involve site location, building, floor layout, electrical system design, mechanical design and modularity.
The advent of new technologies, such as blade servers, that require substantial incremental power and cooling capacity; the pressure to consolidate multiple data centers into fewer locations; the need for incremental space; changes in operational procedures; and potential changes in safety and security regulations converge to impose constant facilities changes on the modern datacenter.
The overarching rule in data center facilities is to design for flexibility and scalability. This rule embraces several key principles in the site location, building selection, floor layout, electrical system design, mechanical design, and the concept of modularity that enables the datacenter facility to change and adapt as needed, with minimum renovation and change to basic building systems.
The objective of this course is to show the specific guidelines on achieving a high level of flexibility and scalability in the data center. These best practices address site location, building, and principles in the design and provisioning of critical facilities systems.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
