        Determining Total Cost of Ownership

        An improved method for measuring total cost of ownership (TCO) of data center and network room physical infrastructure and relating these costs to the overall Information Technology infrastructure is described, with examples. The cost drivers of TCO are quantified. The largest cost driver is shown to be unnecessary unabsorbed costs resulting from the oversizing of the infrastructure. Read White Paper #6

        Hazards of Harmonics and Neutral Overloads

        This document provides an overview of problems related to harmonic currents, with a specific focus on Information Technology equipment. The way that international regulations solved these problems is described. Read White Paper #26

      • One of the biggest challenges for data center professionals is managing the life cycle of data center equipment in a way that optimizes performance while reducing downtime. The Importance of Data Center Life Cycle Management

      • Start thinking about your facilities in the context of a full life cycle: plan, design, build, operate, and assess (and eventually de-commission). Dr. Frankenstein and Data Centers

      • Decisions and choices made in the planning phase of a data center’s life cycle will cascade and reverberate throughout the life of the facility. So it is important to get it right…and it, perhaps quite literally, pays to get it right the first time. The Best Laid Data Center Plans of Mice and Men
