Data Center Setup

Most companies use data centers because they offer cost predictability, hardware certainty, and control. However, running and maintaining resources in a data center also requires a lot of overhead, including:

  • Capacity: enough resources to scale as needed, and efficient use of those resources.
  • Security: physical security to protect assets, as well as network- and OS-level security.
  • Network infrastructure: components such as wiring, switches, routers, firewalls, and load balances.
  • Support: skilled employees to perform installation and maintenance and to address issues.
  • Bandwidth: suitable bandwidth for peak load.
  • Facilities: physical infrastructure, including equipment and power.

The equipment may be used to:

  • Operate and manage a carrier’s telecommunication network
  • Provide data center based applications directly to the carrier’s customers
  • Provide hosted applications for a third party to provide services to their customers
  • Provide a combination of these and similar data center applications

Effective data center operation requires a balanced investment in both the facility and the housed equipment. The first step is to establish a baseline facility environment suitable for equipment installation. Standardization and modularity can yield savings and efficiencies in the design and construction of telecommunications data centers.
