Your data center is alive.
It is a living, breathing, and sometimes even growing entity that constantly must adapt to change. The length of its life depends on use, design, build, and operation.
Equipment will be replaced, changed, and may be modified to best equip your specific data center’s individual specification to balance the total cost of ownership with risk and redundancy measures.
Just as with a human being, the individual care and love you show your data center can lengthen the life of your partnership.
This, best utilizing and tailoring your data center to extend its life cycle, is addressed by Morrison Hershfield Critical Facilities Practice Lead, Steven Shapiro, in his upcoming Data Center World presentation, “The Life Cycle of a Data Center”.
