Specialties, Inc. (DSI)
, a leader in data
center design-build
, today announced the release of its
complimentary Data
Center Report Card
. This new tool enables IT and facilities
personnel to quickly see a full picture of their data center setup and
systems, while arranging a complimentary assessment by a DSI

Analyzing actual systems – UPS power, air conditioning, cabling,
monitoring and reliability – the Data Center Report Card produces a
picture of how reliable your data center is. By assigning ratings to
these factors and understanding redundancies, reliability, capacity for
growth, and other details, data center managers have an opportunity to
review various scenarios and identify areas for improvement.

The Data Center Report Card integrates information from multiple
elements within a typical data center deployment. As the effectiveness
and efficiency of data center design and functionality vary based on
size and layout, the Report Card takes into consideration the square
footage and number of racks in the data center, as well as the kW per
rack and tier classification. By grading your data center, the Report
Card helps IT and facility managers benchmark performance. After filling
out the report card and self-grading their data center, data center
personnel will have the opportunity to schedule a complimentary
assessment and audit with a DSI representative.

“The Data Center Report Card is a useful tool for those operating the
data center to understand the efficiency of their setup and operations,”
says Phil Rafferty, Co-Founder and President, DSI. “Whether used to
validate performance, estimate future capacity, or as the starting point
for a complete assessment to determine requirements for a redesign or
new data center, the Report Card is designed to provide a visualization
of your data center’s functionality. As a self-rating system, its
flexibility encourages users to think strategically about their existing
data center and determine useful next steps.”
