1623 Farnam Joins DCD to Talk Intelligent, Evolving Operations

2022-10-21T15:12:36-05:00

As the demand placed on data centers grows, the requirements from tenants are becoming more complex. As a result, data center providers and operators are facing a continual push to optimize how they run and manage these mission-critical facilities. What’s more, providers must find new ways to measure and report their operations in ways that demonstrate even more value to customers and shareholders alike.

Data Center Certifications: Understanding the Language of Compliance

2022-04-06T11:29:04-05:00

Data centers are crucial parts of any robust IT framework — and that means they need to be able to reliably keep up with changing regulations and demands across security, sustainability and other mission-critical metrics. The best way to measure these metrics is with standardized certifications. This allows potential data center customers to know exactly how individual facilities hold up best practices and to easily compare data centers and their operators with competitors. These certifications serve as benchmarks — but they do evolve as industry standards change.
