PTS’ Data Center Site Assessment services represent only one (1) of the eleven (11) step progression of the data center project process. Typically, PTS’ Needs and Survey Services are a prerequisite in delivering these Site Assessment Services.

Functional Areas

Assess and rate the data center’s supporting infrastructure across a broad cross-section of its operational areas, including:

  • Equipment layout
  • Utility service
  • Emergency power
  • UPS & batteries
  • Power distribution
  • Cooling & heat rejection
  • Fire detection & suppression
  • Lighting
  • Physical security

Assess and rate the data center’s supporting infrastructure across a broad cross-section of its operational attributes, including:

  • Reliability
  • Redundancy
  • Scalability
  • Concurrent Maintainability
  • Fault Tolerance
  • Manageability

Assess the ability of the facility services and supporting infrastructure (e.g., utility switchgear, emergency power, UPS, PDU, CRAC, etc.) to provide space, power, and cooling capacity for both the existing and future load conditions.

Assess and rate the ability of the existing site and supporting infrastructure to provide high availability using PTS’ Data Center Rating Scale and/or one based on the Uptime Institute’s Data Center Rating Guidelines.

Assess the data center for critical deficiencies relating to:

  • Identify vulnerabilities that threaten infrastructure availability
  • Identify single points-of-failure
  • Identify limitations to concurrent maintainability
  • Identify limitations to fault tolerance
  • Compile a prioritized list of recommendations to mitigate risk, and improve overall facility and support infrastructure operations

PTS’ Site Assessment Services are available in three (3) different detail levels to more accurately align with your requirements and budget constraints. They are as follows:

  • Comprehensive
  • Standard
  • Lite

For each approach, PTS engineers develop and deliver a report including an Availability Scorecard. The scorecard provides a red-light approach and visual aid to easily ascertain areas of concern related to the site assessment and reliability of the facility supporting infrastructure. Depending upon the required level of detail the report and scorecard varies in detail and complexity. Scorecard examples are shown below:
