Data Center Assessment Services
It should go without saying that the key to improving your data center is identifying where the problems currently exist. After all, how can you go about fixing problems in your data center when you don’t even know what the problems are?
Unfortunately, identifying problems in the data center is often easier said than done. As a data center manager, you are likely far too invested in the day-to-day running of your data center to really stop and take the time to assess it for problems. In addition, since you were likely involved in the original design and creation of the data center as well, you may have trouble stepping back from your work and assessing it as an unbiased observer. For both of these reasons, it can help to work with a team of experienced professionals to conduct your data center assessments.
Data center assessments from MCIS: The key to consistent data center improvement
At Miller Critical Infrastructure Solutions (MCIS), our goal is to do everything possible to help our customers build a stronger, more efficient data center. As a result, we know that data center assessments are an important part of our business, because they allow us to go in to our customers’ data centers, see where the opportunities for improvement exist, and then come up with a plan to help our customers implement those improvements.
Working with MCIS to conduct your data center assessments can offer your organization a variety of benefits, including:
- The ability to identify problems no matter where they exist in your data center
- An unbiased and dedicated observer
- A comprehensive plan to use the results of your assessment to improve the data center
Identify problems, no matter where they exist
Your data center is a complex working whole that’s made up of many different interlocking parts, including electrical, mechanical, and computational systems. It only takes a small problem with one of these systems to cause a ripple effect that could drag down the performance and efficiency levels of your data center as a whole.
That’s why it’s important for you to conduct regular data center assessments. By working with the MCIS team, you’ll be able to uncover inefficiencies, performance issues, and possible security concerns, all of which you might not have been able to see with the naked eye. As a result, you’ll have all the information you need to conduct a comprehensive and ongoing program of improvements for your data center.
An Unbiased and Dedicated Observer
One of the best parts of using an outside organization like MCIS to conduct data center assessments is that it provides the ability to pull up issues that you or your staff might not ever be able to identify if you were to perform your own analyses. The team of experienced MCIS data center engineers are dedicated to your data center assessment, which means they’re not distracted by having to actually run the data center, like your team might be.
In addition, the MCIS team will be able to approach the assessment from the position of an unbiased observer. Since they did not design the data center, their judgment is not clouded by their own personal involvement or assumptions about the project. As a result, they are able to provide a more complete assessment that does not overlook any of the potential problems that may exist in your data center.
A Comprehensive Plan to Improve the Data Center
While data center assessments are certainly important, it isn’t enough to merely identify problems within the data center. Instead, a data center assessment should provide useful insights about how to fix those problems, serving as the first step in a comprehensive and ongoing strategy of data center improvement.
The MCIS data center assessment team will not only identify problems with your data center; they’ll also tell you what those problems mean, and what you can do to fix them and improve your data center. This includes both the “low-hanging fruit”–things you can do now to drive immediate results–and things that you can do over the long run, as part of an ongoing strategy to continue improving your data center over time.
At MCIS, we don’t identify problems with your data center just for the sake of identifying problems. Every data center assessment you receive from us will include real, useful insights you can use to increase performance and efficiency within your data center.
