BICSI has announced the release of its newest standard, 002-2010, Data Center Design and Implementation Best Practices.

 

With the push for greater capacity, increased efficiency and higher levels of utilization, data centres have become more complex to design and bring on-line, the organization said in a release.

 

Due to this, today’s data centre designer is often required to have knowledge in mechanical, electrical and telecommunications systems—areas not typically found in the same reference manuals or standards.

“Written to complement existing standards, within its pages are requirements, recommendations and additional information that should be considered when planning and building a data centre, such as site selection, layout, thermal systems and security,” the organization said.

 

It is available for purchase at www.bicsi.org/standards. BICSI members qualify for a reduced fee.
