FlexPod site readiness assessment services verify that all required Layer 1 Physical Infrastructure items are in- place, properly installed, and correctly configured to ensure a smooth, efficient, and successful FlexPod deployment and operation. P ANDUIT Advisory Services 2
SM Service overview Assess seven (7) key aspects of the data center physical infrastructure Power Thermal / Cooling Network Connectivity Pathways Space Floor loading Telecommunications Bonding Determine if each area is ready to receive a FlexPod – Yes or No For No areas, determine level of fix required and recommend improvement actions Provide written Site Readiness report P ANDUIT Advisory Services 3 What we do…
SM Service overview P ANDUIT Advisory Services 4 Areas assessed… ItemQuestion answered PowerIs the data center providing the proper power feeds for the FlexPod – Voltage, current rating, phase, frequency, plug style, agency approval? CoolingDo proper airflow, cabinet arrangement, aisle widths, and temperature conditions exist for the FlexPod? Data CommunicationsAre the required data cables – quantity, type, media, connector style, uplink ports, communications protocol – in place for the FlexPod ? PathwaysAre suitable under floor or overhead pathways present to accommodate all data and power cables going to / coming from the FlexPod? SpaceWill FlexPod fit in the space provided? Floor loadingWill the raised floor support the weight of the FlexPod? Telecommunications Bonding Is a proper room-level telecommunications bonding & grounding system installed with available hook-ups for the FlexPod?
SM Assess 17 detailed aspects needed to properly power the desired FlexPod Specific to each FlexPod model Unique to each sites FlexPod configuration Ensure proper equipment, POU, and room power configuration: Voltage Amperage (current) Frequency Single vs. 3-Phase Delta vs. Wye topology POU feeder plug style Determine if each item is 100% ready to power the FlexPod – if not, advise on needed upgrades or modifications P ANDUIT Advisory Services 5 What we do…
SM P ANDUIT Advisory Services 6 What we do… Measure 41 inter-related parameters to ensure proper thermal performance for the FlexPod Overall layout and room conditions Raised floor air handling capabilities Overhead air return performance Room-level or in-row cooling unit capacities and operating conditions Recirculation or by-pass air issues Target specific air temperature ranges, air flow speeds, and air volume numbers Particular to each FlexPod model Dependent on each site and FlexPod configuration Verify that the data center can properly cool the FlexPod or if there will be thermal issues that require additional attention
SM Confirm that the proper data communications links are available and ready to connect to the FlexPod Production data connections Management port channels Topology and redundancy Data cabling type, grade, and connector style Cable routing and pathways 36 point detailed assessment Get specific regarding port availability and channel counts Precise requirements for each FlexPod model, and individual configuration Detail needed improvements or additions Action plan for required modifications Data communications upgrade kits available P ANDUIT Advisory Services 7 What we do…
