Colocation Power

White Paper Published By: Sungard

Type:  White Paper
Length:  6 pages

Colocation requirements can no longer be expressed in terms of square footage.

That's because the amount of physical space required to house colocated infrastructure is in large part determined by the power and cooling demands of the hardware.

This white paper examines the relationship between wattage and floor space in a data center, and demonstrates the calculations an IT organization can perform in order to determine its power requirements-because only then can it determine how much square footage is truly necessary.

The paper then suggests an approach to selecting a service provider with the mix of infrastructure and expertise best suited to meet those needs.
