Default Tips for a better DC

There are some tips which must be followed to make our DC better:

# Keep Cool Fans are an important part of data center maintenance, especially in locations with restrictive space constraints. The data centers of today not only use a large number of blades, but those blades are packed densely, making them more sensitive to overheating. In such situations, you can use cooling fans that fit in 1U spaces and air conditioning units designed to cool single and double-wide enclosures.

#Better Interdepartmental Communication Using available safeguards enables organizations to protect their stored data, satisfying the security team and simultaneously allowing the storage team to meet its objective of backing up data without negatively impacting performance.

#Formal Development Program Soft skills are more important in today’s work environment than ever. Employee educational solutions include various combinations of online learning, instructor-led teaching, role-playing, and programs based on alliances with various colleges and universities. Not only are its employees encouraged to achieve their goals, but they’re encouraged to celebrate achievements via parties, boat cruises, sports, and raffles.



I invite all to add some more tips on how to make a DC better.

Never underestimate security. Make sure your data center is as secure as possible, discouraging even the thought of someone busting in.

Great article, thanks for sharing, Schumie. I don't know why the original poster never linked to it, but never mind. It's been fun reading it.

Hi Princee,

Thank you for starting this thread as it includes a lot of useful information for people who are planning to start their own data center. I would also like to suggest adding security to this list.

I've read the article, thanks a lot for sharing. I loved it, didn't know half of the things there. It seems like having a data center is an incredibly complicated thing.

What great information you have supplied here. I have been away for a little while and to come back and read these tips are good. I also agree with the security tip, that is very important as well.
