Meeting Data Center Design Evolution With Smart Alliances
The cost structure and intent of data centers is rapidly changing under the pressure of cloud computing and its move toward massive scale and efficiency. To adapt in a meaningful way, Wired Real Estate Group Inc. (“WiredRE”), the nation’s leading data center advisor, announces growing momentum in its partnership with Deerns America, offering data center design and project management services. The Alliance was created to offer world-class support, bringing more innovative opportunities to the data center design process and related project management services.
As an interesting reference, Bernard Golden’s blog at CIO.com pointed out that there is an old school perspective that cost advantage through “utilization” focused on more efficient use of existing design center patterns. Though, new contemporary perspectives look at transforming the cost basis of data centers by creating new design patterns. “It’s critical to integrate the technical aspects of data center development, design and operations with business planning and commercial feasibility. With experience advising half of the top investment banks in the US, our commercial planning and advisory practice looked to further integrate design and operational expertise via a best-in-breed design firm. We wanted a strategic partner that was exclusively engaged on mission critical infrastructure, and Deerns was an obvious fit,” commented Everett Thompson, CEO, WiredRE. “Deerns has an 80+ year track record producing high-efficiency designs for more than 2,300,000 SF of IT space worldwide, with an IT power of more than 670MW.”
