Good Morning! This week we will post the content from Mark Evanko’s presentation outlining the 16 Elements one should consider in order to develop a complete and appropriate Data Center solution. Mark’s theory is simple, if anyone who needs to plan the next steps or creation of a data center solution looks carefully at these 16 items, based on their specific needs and requirements, this system can act as a roadmap to pinpoint a proper solution. BRUNS-PAK can of course help!
