Design, Build and Commission
A Cost-Effective, Modular Approach
Expansion and development is a major part of managing
today’s data centers. Usable, surplus data center space is
now all but gone. Any remaining space must be redeveloped to meet
growing needs, and greenfield data center build-out is on the rise.
However, this development represents a significant and ongoing investment.
The data center facility is often the most expensive real estate
an organization owns. Depending on factors such as reliability and
redundancy, the data center can cost anywhere from $65 to $3100 a
square foot. Unfortunately, current service providers specialize
in one of three areas — the IT infrastructure, the physical
layer or relocations and moves. Each provider interacts with a different
set of stakeholders, with no common point of integration and with
different agendas. While this disconnected approach may have worked
in the past, it does not meet today’s needs.

These partners provide a fiscally feasible and modular approach,
