Data Center Preparation & Improvement


Data Center Preparation & Improvement

CWT has always believed in world class services to provide to its customers.

Data Centre is considered as the most important area, just like a never centre for any organization, where all the important parts such as computers and components such as core switches, storage system, routers, servers and other communication connectors etc. are housed..

A Data Centre being the heart of any organization is a facility used to house core computer systems and associated components, such as core switches, core routers, servers and storage systems. Its is utmost important for data centres to have backup power supplies, backup of data communications connections, environmental controls (e.g., Air conditioning, Fire Suppression), and special security devices, all these backups are key in case of any eventuality to prevent any shutdown.

A data centre shutdown is highly damaging and loss of business and keeping that in mind data centres are developed to avoid this at all costs and due to that data is backups in two to three places at one time for any fall back in case of need. And this highlights the importance of having data centres, to deliver results for an always available, scalable, redundant, fault-tolerant, manageable, and maintainable environment.

Team of CWT engineers work with their esteemed clients and partners to workout best possible data centre approach keeping in view their needs and requirements. Following are few of the important aspects of a data centre.

Electrical Supply: This refers to all power-related facilities within the Data Center. This normally includes electrical panels, conduits, and several types of receptacles. Power to this system usually comes from an outside commercial power source, namely your local utility company, and is likely conditioned at the company site. Voltage varies from one country to another.

Standby Power: Refers to all backup power systems responsible for support of the Data Center's electrical load in the event that normal utility power fails for any reason. This system traditionally includes large batteries, known as an uninterruptible power source or uninterruptible power supply, and one or more generators.

The Cooling System refers to the chillers and air handlers used to regulate ambient temperature and control humidity within the Data Centre. This may include the air conditioning system, it may be the regular air conditioning used in offices etc. or it might be independent of it. Individual server cabinets can also possess their own cooling measures, such as fans or water-cooling.

Raised flooring refers to an elevated grid system that is frequently installed in large Data Centers. Cooled air, electrical whips, and data cabling are routed through the space under the raised floor, promoting better air flow and enabling easier management of power and cable runs. Water pipes, fire suppressant cylinders, moisture detectors, and smoke detectors may be located here as well.
Fire Suppression: Refers to all the devices associated with detecting or extinguishing a fire in the Data Center. The most obvious components are water-based sprinklers, gaseous fire suppression systems, and hand-held fire extinguishers. Others can include devices that detect smoke or measure air quality.
Also important to mention is leak detection devices and physical security controls such as card readers and security cameras.
