Introduction

The comprehensive evaluation, analysis, planning, design and operation of a data centre crosses many disciplines with breadth and depth. This ‘design checklist’ serves as an analytical tool to audit data centre compliance against best practices and organizational requirements. Much of the criteria documented herein is based on the following TIA Standard and Addendums: ANSI/TIA-942-2005: Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Centers ANSI/TIA-942-1 (March 2008): Data Center Coaxial Cabling Specifications and Application Distances TIA-942-2 (March 2010): Telecommunications Infrastructure Standard for Data Centers Addendum 2-Additional Guidelines for Data Centers, specifies revised requirements for temperature and humidity in data centers.

21 Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) In order to better manage the critical information gap between the physical and virtual layers in the data centre, consider six key questions data centre managers should ask when implementing a data centre infrastructure management (DCIM) solution. Data centre managers are challenged to maintain or increase IT availability, server utilization and efficiency in the face of rising costs and demands. One strategy to help address these challenges is virtualization, which increases server utilization and enables greater energy efficiency. But virtualization also makes it more difficult to predict the demand on physical systems a t any given time. As a result of the uncertainty in physical system demand, the data centre manager is compelled to reserve a resource buffer against overload at peak capacity. A holistic DCIM approach provides new insights into the relationships between facilities and IT infrastructure components, enabling data centre managers to better optimize their data centre resource consumption. 1) What are the critical infrastructure assets in my data centre and what are their respective mission interdependencies? 2) If asked by my management, could I quickly retrieve a comprehensive monitoring and analysis report of all the assets in my data centre, and would this report identify bottlenecks? 3) Can my data centre manage day-to-day workloads with flexibility while servicing on-demand needs as they arrive for my company? 4) Does this DCIM solution provide the trend analysis and intelligence needed for my team to deliver a comprehensive capacity management plan? 5) What intuitive web-based executive summary and planning tools are provided in the solution? 6) Will the DCIM solution align with IT and business services?
