A Data Center Design Plan is essentially a roadmap that helps companies to consider and prioritize the current and future components they require in a data center. The primary components of a data center design plan include, but are not limited to:

  • Power Demands
  • Cooling Capabilities
  • Rack Density
  • Networking and Redundancy
  • Workflow and Repeatable Processes
  • Implementation
  • Integration and Automation
  • Testing
  • Security and Compliance
  • Analytics and Reporting

Then these components are built into a master plan that includes placements, functionality, congruence, equipment, and component specs, etc. mapping out the details of the entire data center build.
