Data Center Design and Architecture training in IIHT

Data Center is a facility which hosts a repository of computing resources and its associated components in controlled environments and under centralized management systems. The environment and management systems ensure that data centres work round-the-clock and in accordance to the enterprise’s business needs.

The computing resources that can be housed in a data centre include mainframes, ERP and Business Process servers, Mail servers, Web servers, application servers, file servers, messaging servers, storage subsystems, and network infrastructure. Applications hosted in a data centre can include financial applications, human resources applications, e-commerce applications, network operations and network-based applications. 

Designing and maintaining a data centre requires skills and knowledge that range from switching and routing to load balancing and from security to servers and applications.  A data centre should have a redundant continuous power supply, continuous network connectivity, redundant data communications connections, and high security. All these characteristics ensure high availability of the resources in the data centre and to make the data centre reliable.

Data Center Tires

The 4 Tier levels as per the TIA-942 standard are as follows:

Tier 1: Tier 1 data centres are basically server rooms and have power supply and environmental controls according to the requirements of the servers hosted in the server room. The servers are generally connected to the input-output devices externally through switches. This tier guarantees 99.671% availability, which is a downtime of less than 28.8 hours in a year.

Tier 2: Tier 2 data centres retain all the characteristics of Tier1. They additionally provide redundancy in storage and server processing. The purpose of this redundancy is to ensure that the infrastructure components are available round the clock. This tier guarantees about 99.741% availability, which is a downtime of less than 22 hours in a year.

Tier 3: Tier 3 data centres have all the characteristics of Tier 1 and Tier 2. Additionally, Tier 3 also has multiple, independent distribution paths serving the IT equipment to ensure high network availability. This is used to remove the bottleneck due to low network bandwidth. The IT equipment in the data centres should have dual power supply and the equipment should be compatible with the topology of a site's architecture. There is no scope for downtime for maintenance purposes; it is expected to be available 24 X 7 guaranteeing 99.982% availability, which is a downtime of less than 1.6 hours in a year.

Benefits of Virtualizing a Data centre

  • Lesser heat build up
  • Reduced cost
  • Faster redeployment
  • Easier backup
  • Better testing
  • Disaster recovery
  • Easier migration to cloud
  • Greener pastures

Why should you go for this course:

IT data center professionals are facing more challenges from business owners within their companies. Corporate initiatives for innovation, business agility, the proliferation of devices, and increased energy efficiency are all demands that data center professionals are trying to solve. A company’s ability to solve these issues directly affects its bottom line and can put it ahead of the competition. Solving these complex issues requires data center professionals who are trained not just on the latest products but on industry best practices and who have a strong foundation in data center technologies.

Classification of Data Center

Classification of Data Center

Classification of Data Center process

Basically data center tiers (Tier: I, II, III and IV) – represent a scale to define the uptime of a data center. Companies find the Data Center Tier classification useful for many reasons such as:

  1. Uptime guarantee
  2. Performance
  3. Investment
  4. Return on investment (ROI)

Data center Requirement

  • Networked servers to run complex applications
  • Cooling systems to ensure systems inside the datacenter don’t over heat
  • Ventilation systems to ensure optimal air-flow
  • Security systems (both physical and electronic) to deny unauthorized access to data
  • Power Distribution Units (generators, batteries, etc.) to ensure continuous power supply
  • Redundant Units / Backup systems to ensure continuous uptime

The functions within a datacenter can be sub-divided into two categories:
