Power the data centre sufficiently but also efficiently
Given how much time that a data centre typically spends in operation, it is naturally essential that you are able to provide the data centre with enough power for it to run properly. However, using a large amount of power can unsurprisingly cost your business a lot of money and so it is also in your company’s interest to regularly find new ways of improving the data centre’s power efficiency and, therefore, your company’s return on investment. Remember that only a fraction of the power that is necessary to run a data centre is actually used to deliver a service.
Have the right kind of people running the data centre
It can be too easy to underestimate how much particular types of people can help to boost the effectiveness of a data centre. We recommend that you are highly meticulous about what people you choose to run your company’s data centre. We particularly recommend that, to this end, you choose people who have been professionally trained to ensure that they have the relevant skills, knowledge and qualifications for their jobs. Though your business might have to pay more for staff like this, the impressive return on investment that your business could achieve as a result ensures that arranging for such staff to run the data centre remains an economically very wise move.
