The QWK.net data center design services include the design and planning of facilities that are flexible and scalable. From floor layout to appropriate redundancies, we plan and design to meet your specific needs.
There are many design aspects to a properly engineered data center. Our designs are comprehensive but a few of the basic design elements include:
As one of the most important planning concerns is power. The location of the data center facility will need to be located where ample power is available and also insuring scalability.
Power backup is critical in any data center project to keep equipment running in cases of power outages. Short term and long term power backups are all part of the planning and design.
A fiber optic connection to a data center will provide a more high-performance network than any other type of data transport. The amount of bandwidth available is pre-determined for optimal capacity.
Having redundant Internet paths from different carriers is optimal to keep the data flowing into the data center. Establishing appropriate connectivity is another critical element in the planning and design of a data center.
We make sure that the topology designs organize cables in clear zones that eliminate cable pathway congestion.
The hardware selected for each data center project will need to be determined based on the technical specifications of the facility. We recommend high-quality, carrier grade equipment for optimal performance.
Cooling and filtered air keep computers, routers and switches performing well and expand the life of the equipment housed in the data center. Proper air conditioning along with the flow of air all contribute to the effectiveness of the climate control.
Setting up a proper monitoring system will send notifications that will alert technicians and engineers of any fluctuations in environment, power or connectivity. When issues arise, your technical team will be immediately notified.
Proper security will protect against intrusion and document those who enter the facility. Security requires multifaceted systems that may include video surveillance, alarm systems, entry levels and the structure itself.
