Scaling your data center is no small undertaking. Scaling means you’re able to handle an increase in work, output, and sales in a reasonable way without harming your business. Your data center needs to be able to collect, store, process, and distribute large amounts of data at high speeds without missing a beat, even when there are more customers to provide for.
Fortunately, you can feel confident while scaling your data center when you create a plan, take action, and stay persistent. Here are a few tips you can use while scaling your data center to improve your chances of success.
- Double-down on equipment. If you’re in the process of scaling your data center, now is the time to add to your data center supplies and equipment. You’ll need a greater number of server racks and cabinets, and your servers and network gear will require powering and cooling solutions to optimize their performance. Look for cold aisle containment systems that work for both legacy and new data racks so you don’t need to replace older but functional equipment while scaling.
- Opt for customizable enclosures. With over 47% of all sold servers expected to go to hyper scalers, your facility needs to be prepared for scaling not just on a performance level but also on a physical level. The engineering team at AMCO Enclosures is capable of designing a server rack to the specifications you need. These customizable enclosures are perfect for scaling because they help you make the most out of your space.
- Make sure your staff is prepared. When you’ve managed to find staff that not only has the server, storage, and networking skills your data center needs but also the visionary skills your business needs, you need to make sure you’re doing what you can to keep them at your company. That means when your business begins to scale you’ll want to provide them with training in new skills. This lowers your risk of turnover while also ensuring your employees have the skills to keep your data center operating successfully.
