Data Center Design Criteria
Ketan Shah, P.E., CCNA
This three hour
online course discusses design criteria in data center design, computer room
design and other technical space that integrate critical infrastructure technologies
resulting in continuously available, scalable, redundant, fault-tolerant, manageable
and still maintainable mission critical environments. It is important to understand
the different aspects of design process so that precautions can be taken while
designing. This course will enable the designer to avoid any disruptions in
operation of the computer systems which can potentially be disastrous in current
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
At the conclusion of this course, the student will:
