We are embarking on a 3 year project to modernize one of our data centers in New Jersey. Does anyone have any idea where I can get information or recommend any books about the optimal design / layout for the facility – especially to comply with some of the green initiatives we have internally?
What are some common mistakes to avoid when setting up the layout of your data center? What setup have you found works best? Are there any good guides for data center layout techniques that you would recommend?
