Fundamentals of Managing the Data Center Life Cycle for Owners

Executive summary:
Just as good genes do not guarantee health and wellbeing, a good design alone does not ensure a data center is well-built and will remain efficient and available over the course of its life span. For each phase of the data center's life cycle, proper care and action must be taken to continuously meet the business needs of the facility. This paper describes the five phases of the data center life cycle, identifies key tasks and pitfalls, and offers practical advice to facility owners and management.

However long a data center owner requires their facility to last; the physical infrastructure systems are expected to continuously live up to the facility design's performance specifications even as business and IT requirements change. Management's understanding of the data center life cycle phases and their interconnectedness helps ensure this happens.
Understanding the bigger picture – what occurs in each of the phases, what the key management tasks are, what pitfalls exist, and how one phase impacts the next – can help organizations achieve their data center's cost, speed of deployment, availability, and efficiency goals. This paper seeks to provide data center owners and managers with this understanding.
Figure 1 shows the data center life cycle being composed of five fundamental phases: plan, design, build, operate, and assess. This view of the life cycle is applicable to new data center builds as well as to retrofit and consolidation projects. The life cycle of a project, it should be noted, would be represented in its entirety by only the plan, design, and build phases.

The data center life cycle contains 5 different phases.
