Efficiency and Management Consulting

Data-Center planning and transformation consulting for a dynamic infrastructure

A truly optimized data center is one that takes a holistic view, balancing the three primary functional areas: IT, Facilities, and Operational Management. This alignment ensures efficient use of IT investment and efficient resource allocation driven by business demand.

The Data Center of the future must be highly energy efficient, flexible, resilient, and recoverable.
This requires careful planning, advanced cooling designs, and proper use of virtualization and other technologies and must align to a comprehensive strategy.

Dell consultants help you increase data-center capacity while improving reliability, reducing costs and saving energy. We can also plan, design and implement your next data center or implement a consolidation/migration of current facilities. Intelligently attack escalating facilities costs by letting our experts analyze a broad range of space, power and cooling issues and apply best practices to recommend improvements in priority of impact. Address limited capacity, sprawl and escalating power and cooling costs and concerns, in addition to long term growth goals by maximizing data-center space.

Data-Center Workshop

Facilities Efficiencies
Are you faced with boosting data-center capacity to meet growing business requirements while cutting power/cooling costs and space requirements? Running out of space for additional servers/storage, increasing costs of cooling and areas that are either too hot or cold can all be signs of an inefficient infrastructure. Inefficiencies can lead to power outages, hardware failure and even the need to extend space by expanding or building additional data-center facilities.

Getting started with a Dell Energy Assessment
The Dell Energy Assessment is an on-site engagement to identify system capabilities and note deficiencies. Recommendations are made for improvements for power and cooling, data cabling, and floor plan/space utilization, as well as providing high-level architectural guidance.
