Data Center Hybrid Solution©. Element 6, Co-Location

ReqAnalysis

Hi there! We have been cruising right through these elements, please feel free to post comments or questions or contact us directly. We are very excited to share this information as we know if all elements are considered you will truly have a unique and comprehensive solution for your data center.

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!

So this week lets look at Element #6, Co-Location
