Once the question of power supply and available IP-connection are dealt with, building a data center within an existing building can be a convenient alternative to a new building or the outplacement of your IT, especially for smaller data centers. However, the planning and building comes with a few extra challenges for architects an engineers.
The location cannot be chosen randomly, the available surface is limited and the layout is predefined. In order to find the best solution for those cases, we look at the specific tasks from different angles and consider all possible options. Hence, we can judge the given rooms and develop concepts on how to make the best of the given areas and how to integrate the DC-structures as well as possible.
For example, for every square meter of set-up area, extra room needs to be kept in mind for the logistics, such as USV, cooling, electricity, fire extinguishing systems, diesel emergency power aggregate, etc.
It is definitely worth considering construction in the building. The advantages are clear: No new building needs to be constructed, neither does a new location need to be found. This saves time and money. Also, a certain amount of physical security is usually given.
However, not every room can be used as a data center just like that. Maybe the given area cannot offer the level of availability and security which is needed. Our task is to look at questions like that very closely and try to adjust the future server room to the demands of you and your IT,
respective security precautions and ideal use of the given space. Whether a data center construction in an existing building is a good idea in your specific case is something we would be happy to talk about in a personal consulting meeting.
More details about those products are on the website of our subsidiary company RZproducts.
We also realize extensions or optimizations professionally. Whether you have an altered business alignment, new regulations or a security flaw - One day, your data center might not meet the requirements anymore. Now is the time to take the initiative and adjust all the necessary components before it comes to an overload or even a blackout.
Users turn to us when they want to reach a higher level of availability or introduce more efficient servers, which requires a new concept for the cooling. Often, also the security level cannot be reached on the long run because of increasing centralization. In case of expansions, we analyze all requirements and risks first.
This is the first and most important step before expanding or optimizing a data center. Together, we develop a solution which can be integrated as ideally as possible into your business. Our goal is a long-term efficient data center which can withstand future challenges.
