One of the challenges in maintaining an effective data center or computer center is keeping track of your equipment. While most of us have charts that show the physical relationship of servers, the WAN, and peripheral equipment, even the best infrastructure diagram doesn’t tell the whole story. Preparing the data center in a good manner would help in making a proper environment for your IT equipments that should be considered as the first step in disaster recovery planning.

Preparing your datacenter might require most or all of the following items:

Access Raised Floor

Fire Fighting and Suppression

Security FireDoors

Access Control

Air conditioning

Power Distribution & Conditioning

Generator Backup

Uninterruptible Power Supply

Under-floor Water Detection
