Why systems planning is the Achilles' heel of the data center
System planning is the Achilles’ heel of a data center physical infrastructure project. The physical infrastructure layer, though its management poses a challenge, performs a crucial function—it houses, powers, cools, and protects the data center's computing and network functions.
However, planning mistakes can magnify and propagate through later deployment phases resulting in delays, cost overruns, wasted time, and ultimately a compromised system.
In this paper, you will learn how to eliminate system planning problems with an orderly sequence of tasks that progressively transform and refine information from initial concept to final data center design. Read on now to view this planning sequence optimized for systems management of your data center's physical infrastructure layer.
