Human Error Management (HEM) in the Data Center: For years the industry has known that 70% of data center outages are caused by Human Error, yet none of the data center standards address this issue beyond a slight acknowledgement. Or, there are some standards that focus on “operations” and believe they address Human Error, but they really don’t. The first mistake in Error Management is the belief that error reduction is the focus. It is not. Error Management acknowledges that errors occur, and provides for “intervention strategy” to mitigate the error after it occurs. GDCE are pioneers in this field, and continue to push the Human Error Management agenda, with the belief that outages caused by human error can be prevented. Read More Here!
Computational Fluid Dynamics: Few things are more critical in a data center than its cooling. There is more to cooling efficiency than simply putting one more air conditioning unit into the room than there are kilowatts of load. In fact, many rooms perform very poorly due to flaws in air movement within a room. GDCE are a global leader in CFD modeling, simulation and analysis, utilizing FutureFacilities leading modeling tools, we model both inside the data center, and outside for maximum optimization of the data center cooling. We reduce cost by reducing energy utilized, while maximizing capacity by removing barriers to optimal heat extraction. To learn more about how we can help with your CFD needs Read More Here!
Design and Facility Certification: In the competitive data center market, having a globally recognized certification of the facility design and build adds value. How? In several ways. First it shows your clients and potential clients that you take your data center seriously. A data center certification provides independent 3rd party proof that it meets the criteria of rigours designs like those posed by TIA-942, BICSI, EN50600, Uptime Institute JDCC or many more. GDCE are experienced in assessing the design and facility requirements of these standards utilizing a stringent ISO19011 audit process, to ensure your facility meets expectations. Whether currently in design stage, or for built facilities, GDCE can boost your credibility, and provide you with detailed audit reporting that can be provided to your potential clients, reducing the due diligence time to bring them on board, while providing the expertise needed to ensure they are getting the robustness they expect. Let GDCE help you close sales faster with a DC certification that meets your needs. Read More Here!
Global Data Center Engineering (GDCE) is on a mission: To End Outage in the Data Center Caused by Human Error. We believe the core of that capability is first rooted in solid data center design, which includes designing for Human Error Management. Keeping Human Error Management at the forefront of design focus, coupled with a world class staff of highly experienced and certified professionals, sets us apart from other design practices.
At GDCE, we are passionate about data center design and operation. Ensuring that data centers perform to expected capability and beyond is our specialty. Have a data center that is not performing to expectations? Call us, and we can help. Need your data center validated by a 3rd party? Our expert teams have extensive global experience in validating and certifying data centers to known global standards.
Global Data Center Engineering are a key sponsor to Data Center World Expo 2017 in Singapore October 11 – 12.
Our Technical Director, Scott Payton will be speaking there on the topic of Human Error Management in the Data Center.
