ABSTRACT:

It's no secret that there is discord between IT staff and facilities managers in organizations with large data centers.  You’ve heard the stories: An IT manager buys a new SAN without consulting the facilities team first, and the equipment sits on the loading dock for eight months because it’s too heavy for the raised floor. Or an IT department budgets $4 million for a new application with a blade server system, only to spend $40 million to build a new facility that houses high density equipment. 

Today, IT resources can be provisioned quickly and cheaply—some would say too quickly and cheaply. But those IT resources rely on brick and mortar as well as megawatts, which are abstracted from the IT department.

This e-book serves as a guide for IT pros looking for information to ensure that their physical infrastructures support the data center. It also provides insight into some of the challenges facing data center facilities teams.
