Data Center Projects: Advantages of Using a Reference Design


It is no longer practical or cost-effective to completely engineer all aspects of a unique data center. Re-use of proven, documented subsystems or complete designs is a best practice for both new data centers and for upgrades to existing data centers. Adopting a well-conceived reference design can have a positive impact on both the project itself, as well as on the operation of the data center over its lifetime. Reference designs simplify and shorten the planning and implementation process and reduce downtime risks once up and running. In this paper reference designs are defined and their benefits are explained.
