Our data centers are aging. Our services are expected to be running 24 x 7, and the risk of disasters has led us to consider secondary data centers. This session will address key considerations to evaluate your data center's health and to prepare for increased demands. Topics will include significant power, cooling, space, and fire protection considerations, as well as site selection and machine-room layout.
