What options are available when I’m running out of power, space or cooling?

Optimize: The quickest way to address this problem and increase available power, space and cooling is to optimize an existing facility. The biggest gains in optimization can be achieved by reducing overall server power load (through virtualization) and by improving the efficiency of the facility. For example, up to 70% of the power required to cool and humidify the data center environment can be conserved with currently available technologies such as outside air economizers, ultrasonic humidification, high efficiency transformers and variable frequency drive units (VFDs). Using these techniques when combined with new, higher density IT systems will allow many facilities to increase IT capacity while simultaneously decreasing facility overhead.

Move: If your existing data center can no longer be upgraded to support today’s more efficient (but hotter running and more energy-thirsty) higher-density deployments, there may be nothing you can do except to move to a new space. This move will likely begin with a needs assessment/site selection process and will conclude with an eventual build-out of your existing facility or a move to a new building and site.

Outsource: Besides moving forward with your own new facility, there are two other options worth consideration:

• Colocation: This means moving your data center into space in a shared facility managed by an appropriate service provider. As there are a broad range of business models for how these services can be provided (including business liability), it is important to make sure the specific agreement terms match your short-and-long term needs and (always) take into account the flexibility you require so that your data center can evolve over its lifespan.

• Cloud computing: The practice of leveraging shared computing and storage resources — and not just the physical infrastructure of a colocation provider — has been growing rapidly for certain niche-based applications. While cloud computing has significant quality-of-service, security and compliance concerns that to date have delayed full enterprise-wide deployment, it can offer compelling advantages in reducing startup costs, expenses and complexity.
