practical guide to designing a data center from inception through construction. The fundamental design principles take a simple, flexible, and modular approach based on accurate, real-world requirements and capacities. This approach contradicts the conventional (but totally inadequate) method of using square footage to determine basic capacities like power and cooling requirements.

Nature isn’t the only culprit in compromising the integrity of data centers. There are
also many hazards created by man to disrupt your hard work. Some of them are
described in the following sections.

Industrial Pollution

If possible, avoid locating the facility near major sources of industrial pollution.
Look carefully at neighboring facilities such as:

s Factories

s Manufacturing facilities

s Sewage treatment plants

s Farms

If chemicals associated with these facilities migrate into the controlled areas of the
data center, they can seriously impact not only the hardware, but the health of
personnel. The chemicals used in the field treatment of agricultural areas can also
pose a threat to people and machines. Though a natural problem, also consider sand
and dust that might be blown into the center.

If you must locate in an area with these potential problems, consider this in your
design plans for the center. Make sure you use a filtration system robust enough to
filter out any local contaminants.
