Chapter 3. Quantifying Data Center Space

This chapter discusses the physical footprint of your Data Center—how to size it, what a good configuration is, where to locate a server environment within a multipurpose building, how to make it adaptable for the future needs of your business, and how to construct the Data Center to effectively protect the valuable equipment inside. The chapter also outlines what additional dedicated areas are necessary to make your Data Center function effectively, including the required infrastructure of each area and where those areas should be located in relation to the Data Center.
