Data Center Projects: Establishing a Floor Plan


When it comes to data center design, a proper floor plan is a necessary foundation of an effective density and phasing plan. Many users don’t understand how critical the floor layout is in determining performance of a data center – or, worse, they only understand its importance after a poor layout has compromised the deployment.
In fact, the layout can greatly affect certain data center elements, such as:

  • Achievable power density
  • Complexity of the power and cooling distribution systems
  • Electrical power consumption of the data center
  • And more

Read this white paper today to uncover today’s leading tips for your data center project, learn how to establish a proper floor plan and more!
