STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Data Center Design and Construction Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 994 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Data Center Design and Construction improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 994 standard requirements:

  1. Are all employees required to sign an agreement regarding role and responsibility in your organization and the ownership and use of processing equipment and information within the data center?

  2. Have documented backup procedures been established with another compatible data center for running your organizations programs in the event of a natural disaster or other emergency situation?

  3. Is data replicated between each data center in real time or near real time so that business disruption will be kept to a minimum in the event of a failure at the primary facility?

  4. Are the skills/resources available internally to manage the project or must your organization provide that service (or should a separate construction manager be hired)?

  5. Where do you have sufficient space, power and cooling capacity in the data center today to support new servers/racks required for a new, critical application?

  6. Is it reasonable to expect the same processes included in commissioning new construction projects to work equally well when commissioning existing facilities?

  7. Why would any organization spend the time or money to build a private data center when cloud computing offers compelling financial and operational benefits?

  8. Are you a data center operator who needs to reduce operational expenses, improve system and application reliability and mitigate risk through data analysis?

  9. Does the recovery infrastructure support multiplatform data center environments that may exist today or tomorrow as a result of mergers and acquisitions?

  10. Does the provider monitor and perform preventative maintenance of equipment to ensure the continued operability of systems within the data centers?
