E-SPIN Data Center Planning and Pre-Design Consulting Services
In today’s fast-paced business environment, network downtime can spell disaster, leading to lost revenue and job insecurity. Imagine finding yourself in a situation where your data center project is both over budget and months behind schedule. To make matters worse, your management team has approved an architect’s vision for your computer room that falls short in providing even the most fundamental necessities – sufficient space, robust security, fire protection, reliable power supply, and efficient cooling.
Now, let’s envision a different scenario. In this scenario, you’ve gained the admiration and respect of your company by meticulously planning, designing, and delivering an always-available data center project that stays within scope, adheres to timelines, and remains within budget.
So, what sets these two scenarios apart? The pivotal factor is E-SPIN, your trusted partner when management turns to you for new computer room power and cooling requirements. We are the experts who have your best interests at heart. We understand the challenges of ensuring uninterrupted network availability, translating the impact of future IT services on critical load, and conceptualizing how the resulting infrastructure affects your budget.
A Well-Structured Plan is Worth Its Weight in Gold
We recognize that your responsibility is to meet management’s expectations of continuously available network services. However, achieving this feat is impossible without a computer room and supporting infrastructure that are up to the task. E-SPIN’s data center planning and pre-design consulting services guarantee that your company gets the always-available data center it needs from the very beginning.
Here’s what we bring to the table:
- Clear Project Cost Guidance: We provide transparent cost projections aligned with your availability expectations.
- Accurate Critical Load Profiling: Our experts translate IT equipment details directly into power, cooling, and space requirements for your facility, ensuring precision in load profiling.
- Understanding of Data Center Design Standards: E-SPIN is well-versed in both standard and non-standard data center design practices, ensuring that your project adheres to industry best practices.
Balancing Cost and Availability
Everyone desires a 24/7/365 uninterrupted computing and networking environment. However, achieving this level of performance comes with extensive implications. Availability hinges not only on component reliability and redundancy but also on concurrent maintainability. This means that essential periodic maintenance can be carried out without disrupting the load.
Naturally, the higher the availability expectation, the greater the cost. E-SPIN assists you in:
- Determining Appropriate Availability Levels: We help you identify the level of availability that suits your specific needs.
- Estimating Costs for the Chosen Availability: We provide accurate cost estimates based on your selected risk level.
Accurate Critical Load Profiling
While most architects and consulting engineers rely on IT staff to provide equipment and load requirements, E-SPIN takes it a step further. We directly translate IT equipment specifications into power, cooling, and space requirements for your facility. We’ve developed our own techniques for this purpose because we understand that manufacturer specifications often fall short. Additionally, we have the experience to provide precise load profiles based on conceptual IT initiatives and services, even without detailed equipment lists, accounting for factors like technology refresh initiatives and equipment compaction.
Standard and Cutting-Edge Practices
E-SPIN has meticulously crafted a set of design standards that allow for precise prediction of data center availability. We’re intimately familiar with the challenges faced in maintaining uninterrupted data center operations, including the latest trends and techniques in high-density cooling that have a significant impact on facility infrastructure.
