Dr. NatheerKhasawneh


Data centers introduction

Goal…

  • How Data Centers are critical environments for companies.

  • Aspects of a Data Center's physical component.

  • Use best design, manage, support, or work in data center.

  • Data Center infrastructure (power, data cabling, cooling, fire suppression, and so on)

  • Strategy guide for creating a server environment that meets the specific needs of your company.


Motivation

Motivation

  • Businesses want to learn about (and implement) best practices for their Data Centers.

  • The need for comprehensive description about how effectively to design, manage, support, and work in Data Centers.

  • The increase number of inexpensive high-density servers that require more power, data connections, and cooling in Data Centers than in the past. Older rooms lack the infrastructure to support these machines and often require retrofitting or expansion.

  • An increased awareness of natural disasters and vulnerability.

  • Businesses looking to save operational costs by shedding real estate, leading to the consolidation of servers into new and larger Data Centers.

  • Companies that have experienced explosive growth are discovering their server environments are inadequate in capacity or infrastructure and require upgrades or wholesale replacement.

  • More?


Road map

Road Map

  • Design of a Data Center


Approaching the data center project

Approaching the Data Center Project

  • Data Center functions

  • Communication and cooperation among key personnel for successful design and construction.

  • Principles of good Data Center design.

  • Traditional server environment infrastructure, including options for redundancy.

  • People and documents that are normally involved when designing a Data Center, and offers tips for a winning project.


Choosing an optimal site

Choosing an Optimal Site

  • Choosing an appropriate location for your Data Center

  • The hazards you should avoid

  • The physical attributes you want.

  • The risks that can jeopardize a Data Center site

  • How to safeguard your server environment

  • What agency to go to learn if a specific parcel of land is susceptible.

  • What seemingly minor building elements can make or break a property's suitability to house a Data Center.


Quantifying data center space

Quantifying Data Center Space

  • Data center size.

  • Good configuration.

  • Where to locate a server environment within a multipurpose building.

  • How to make it adaptable for the future needs of your business.

  • How to construct the Data Center to protect the valuable equipment inside effectively.

  • What additional dedicated areas are necessary to make your Data Center function effectively.


Laying out the data center

Laying Out the Data Center

  • How to efficiently arrange all elements of a Data Center during the design phase.

  • How various server layouts affect the amount of floor space that rows occupy.

  • What's the best way to lay out a room when dealing with super heavy equipment.

  • How to accommodate unavoidable obstacles.

  • Where to place essential Data Center infrastructure controls.

  • What layout-related problems to watch for and avoid.


Overhead or under floor installation

Overhead or Under-Floor Installation?

  • The benefits and drawbacks of running power, data connections, and cooling into the Data Center by way of the ceiling versus installing a raised floor system and routing it underneath.

  • The components involved during the installation

  • Shows sample illustrations for both overhead and under-floor systems as well as provides common problems to watch out for and avoid.


Creating a robust electrical system

Creating a Robust Electrical System

  • The key elements for creating a reliable Data Center electrical system to power your company's critical servers and insulate them against surges, utility power failures, and other potential electrical problems.

  • Design strategies for both in-room and standby electrical infrastructure

  • Best practices for labeling and monitoring electrical system

  • End-to-end testing procedures to ensure that when your standby infrastructure is called upon it performs as intended.


Designing a scalable network infrastructure

Designing a Scalable Network Infrastructure

  • Data Center's structured cabling and outlines the importance of a well-organized physical hierarchy.

  • The differences between common cabling media (copper and fiber)

  • Suggests which cabling media most appropriate in various scenarios

  • Best practices for installation and testing.


Keeping it cool

Keeping It Cool

  • Features of a Data Center's environmental control and protection systems—cooling and fire suppression.

  • Tips to promote good airflow within a server environment and outlines the advantages and disadvantages of various fire suppression technologies.


Upgrading current data center

Upgrading Current Data Center

  • Guidance on how to upgrade an existing Data Center that is lacking in space or infrastructure, has been poorly maintained, or can no longer meet your company's hosting needs because of changes in the types of equipment that are to be installed.

  • Addresses the special challenges of retrofitting a less-than-perfect server environment with the least impact to devices that are already on line.


Road map cont

Road Map Cont.

  • Managing Data Centers


Organizing your way to an easier job

Organizing Your Way to An Easier Job

  • How to manage incoming servers and networking devices so that they integrate seamlessly within a Data Center

  • Making individual machines easier to support and the server environment as a whole more productive for your company.

  • Strategies for allocating floor space and arranging equipment as well as recommends processes and standards for reviewing equipment for suitability in your Data Center.


Labeling and signage

Labeling and Signage

  • The role of clear and instructive Data Center labeling in promoting best use of the room's infrastructure, simplifying troubleshooting, and avoiding accidental downtime

  • Different numbering schemes for a server environment and provides examples of essential Data Center signage.


Safeguarding the servers

Safeguarding the Servers

  • Access control options for a Data Center and recommends standards of operations for people working in the room.

  • Best practices for equipment installations and suggested guidelines when touring visitors through a server environment.


Mapping monitoring and metrics

Mapping, Monitoring, and Metrics

  • What Data Center-related information should be documented and maintained.

  • How such data is helpful for managing rooms, troubleshooting during emergencies, and planning future Data Center expansions.

  • Tools that can be used to monitor a server environment and recognize problems before they affect servers.


Maintaining a world class environment

Maintaining a World-Class Environment

  • Maintaining Data Center in a pristine state

  • Diligently removing unwanted materials and professionally cleaned on a regular basis

  • Instructions for contracting with a professional cleaning company and outlines common mishaps that can occur.
