Data center demands continue to skyrocket, forcing organizations to build new facilities with little funds. This handbook can help you future-proof your investments and avoid costly construction mistakes.
A data center construction initiative starts with the selection of the best physical space -- but site selection involves much more. And each subsequent step only helps lay a solid foundation for your data center construction project.
This handbook discusses the steps of a solid data center construction project:
- Site selection
- Data center conceptualization and cost analysis
- Negotiating with contractors
- Choosing a commissioning agent and finalizing your project
