Infrastructure Audit & Optimization DC

Analyze Your Infrastructure To Ensure Maximum Reliability And Availability

Highly available Infrastructure demands that the many different data centre components and technologies are working in sync driving efficient operations. Keeping every element healthy, efficient, and secure is imperative to achieving good performance at optimal costs.
Our team of data centre experts supports you achieve these by assessing, monitoring, securing, refreshing, and even redesigning your data centre environment to your specific. ESDS end-to-end data centre assessment services include a review of your data centre's reliability and points of failure and a review of growth, floor space, power, and cooling needs for optimal performance. Our experts assess and evaluate your IT inefficiencies and data centre risks which would include expert recommendations on data centre redesign, migration to the cloud, other strategies to optimize and improve performance to support your business objectives.

Our Assessment Approach And Tools To Ensure Your Business Success

  • Basic Elements of Assessment

    Datacenter assessments can be broken down into following areas of analysis. However, our services are customized to each business, and there is no fixed assessment template. Depending on the individual business needs and requirements, companies can customize their assessment process accordingly.

  • IT infrastructure assessment

    The most critical data centre assessment involves

    • Architecture and scalability concerns: Hardware, software & virtual environment IT integration and management, access rights, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity considerations, pricing etc.

    • Digital transformation essential elements, budgets and business expectations: Artificial Intelligence, Analytics, Machine Learning, etc.

    • End user functionality: capacity planning, real time data polling, unified dashboard, reporting and analytics, dependency mapping, intelligent monitoring and alerting etc.

    • Vendor strength: Reputation, end-to-end IT management organization skills etc

  • Communications Assessment

    Current and future technology trends mandate that the communications infrastructure is flexible and scalable. The review includes communication cable plant pathways to and from the data centre and the raised floor. It may also have the LAN/SAN core routing/switching architecture, suitability to support existing and future server and storage technology, cable routing, power and cable management, the configuration of existing equipment racks and cabinets, airflow management, etc.

  • Environment assessment

    The data centre site is evaluated to identify vulnerabilities and characteristics that may impact its operations. Settings such as building access and proximity to adjacent hazards like rivers, rail lines, and airports are just a few of the site considerations impacting a data centre.

  • Physical (Mechanical, Electrical) assessment

    Physical equipment is the foundation on which the data centre operates. Without a proper assessment of the hardware, its life expectancy, maintenance schedules and repairs, customers will likely overshoot the projected timelines and cost overruns.
    Mechanical systems subject to review include cooling and temperature/humidity control, building automation/controls, plumbing/drainage systems, air distribution/ventilation, space pressurization control, fire suppression, battery room ventilation, etc.
    We evaluate all critical electrical systems, including electrical power monitoring, grounding, fire alarm, security/access control, critical and standby power generation and distribution, transient voltage surge etc.

  • Future Scope/Plan Assessment

    Assessments are usually centered around how much space, power, or cooling is required. But they typically overlook that budget constraints are a significant roadblock for data centre optimization. What platforms and technologies will be deployed to support the IT goals over the facility's life, and how much space and power is required to support these platforms are questions that businesses ponder upon. Considering the size of the capital investment, it is unwise to proceed with a facility upgrade without a firm basis for the plan.

ESDS' Approach

Companies intent on improving and optimizing their datacenter can leverage ESDS technical and operational expertise for a thorough assessment. The key outcomes of this process are

Data Center Insights
Organizations will get a holistic and insightful view of their data centre. They can select the infrastructure and applications to evaluate, and ESDS will assess them to give a comprehensive report on:
  • Overview of the systems, current vendors, memory usage
  • Virtualization performance etc.
  • Findings and Recommendations
  • Usability capacity
  • Server utilization and backup

The data centre's infrastructure design, configuration and installations may have been appropriate when the equipment was originally installed. However, changing technology and business needs may have made the system less than optimal. Increased attention to the data centre also drives the need for greater flexibility balanced against high availability and the lowest total cost of ownership. As a result, data centre modernization is imperative for your organization to run an efficient and effective smooth data center.
