The main task of data center facilities is to collocate information technology devices with
- Maximum business continuity
- Maximum business performance
- Maximum business safety
. Infrastructure efficiency is naturally not among these main tasks. However, infrastructure efficiency is particularly in conflict with high business continuity and high performance. Maximum facility efficiency can be achieved by choosing to operate non-redundantly, in other words with low business continuity or at environment conditions resulting in low performance in the information technology devices. This is not only preferable, but should also never be encountered under conditions that evolve over time.
Sustainable High-Efficiency Operation is therefore only possible through management and the Consultancy work aims to create this management method and culture.
As shown above, infrastructure methods and control works should be performed to manage Business Continuity and Infrastructure in a balanced way.
It will be important in terms of compliance with the “Sustainable Operation Principles” for the data center facility to update and review these managements in certain intervals and take decisions.
As part of this Consultancy Service, Otomatica performs Simultaneous Maintenance, Capacity Management and Load Management analyses for your existing data centers or similar critical facility and checks whether your Cooling System operates as designed or expected and makes potential alternating operation and consumption efficiency recommendations.
Customers receiving this consultancy service thus gain full knowledge about their infrastructure regarding;
- The simultaneous maintenance performance and risks of their infrastructure
- Existing capacity usage and limits
- Load flow risks and avoidance methods
- Whether the cooling system works as required and recommendations for increasing efficiency
- Consumption distribution and available improvement methods
and plan their future investments and updates without compromising on business continuity.
