2014 Data Center 100: 20 Designers And Builders


Designers and Builders: The Data Center Experts

Whether it's a server closet or a dedicated facility, a data center requires the right mix of IT, power and cooling equipment laid out so as to maximize efficiency while providing flexibility and room to grow.

That, in turn, requires design and construction expertise, as well as the know-how to quickly turn the new facility over to customers. Just as important, in many cases, is expertise in finding, purchasing and prepping the right site for a new data center.

The companies and individuals with such expertise, often the unsung heroes of the data center, are essential to getting data center projects started and making sure they are ready for move-in as expected.
