  DataCenter Design & Operation


TGO offers Data Center and Computer Room consulting services along with broad range of project expertise.  We specialize in planning, designing, engineering, constructing, monitoring and maintaining data centers, computer rooms and server rooms that integrate, 'best-of-breed', critical infrastructure technologies.  The result is an always available, scalable, redundant, fault-tolerant, manageable, and maintainable data center environment.

TGO is uniquely qualified to help businesses assess their data center or computer room and support infrastructure risks, provide recommendations for improvement and offer accurate project cost estimating and guidance throughout implementation. In today's hyper-competitive markets, where you measure network downtime in lost profits, TGO designs solutions that protect against some of the leading causes of downtime, hardware damage, data loss, and decreased productivity.  TGO sets the standard for 'always' available solutions for data centers, computer rooms, server rooms, network closets, telecommunications rooms, network operations centers, and other mission critical facilities.

A good plan is critical for a successful data center design or computer room design project.

The data center design or computer room design process starts with our client's management staff determining the business's data center or computer room objectives and availability requirements.  We follow with a thorough survey of the existing systems and facilities.  We then work with the IT staff and the facility staff to identify and quantify the data center or computer room project needs and combine them with our understanding of the trends and migrations strategies required to adapt to future changes.  Finally, we develop a conceptual data center design or computer room design from which we develop construction budgets and schedules.

The three most important attributes of any good Data Center Design or Computer Room Design are High-Availabilit, Flexibility, and Simplicity.

  • High-Availability

All data center designs are judged by their ability to provide continuous operations for the network services they support.  Data center availability is affected by both planned (scheduled maintenance) and unplanned (failures) events.  To maximize availability, the impact from each of these must be minimized and/or eliminated. All data centers must be maintained on a regular basis.  In most data center designs, scheduled maintenance is a planned event requiring network downtime.  For this reason, general maintenance is often forgone, leaving long-term availability to chance.  In robust data center designs, concurrently maintainable systems are implemented to avoid interruption to normal data center operations.

To mitigate unplanned outages, both redundancy and fault-tolerance must be incorporated into the data center design.  High-availability is accomplished by providing redundancy for all, major and minor, systems, thereby eliminating single points of failure.  Additionally, the data center design must offer predictable uptime by incorporating fault-tolerance against hard failures.  (A hard failure is a failure in which the component must be replaced to return to an operational steady state.)

A data center achieves high-availability by implementing a fully redundant, fault-tolerant, and concurrently maintainable IT and support infrastructure architecture in which all possible hard failures are predictable and deterministic.

  • Flexibility

A data center must support fast, seamless, growth, and deployment of new services without a major overhaul of its infrastructure and without a major disruption to its operation. A data center designed for flexibility can adapt to changing business conditions and thereby the demands put upon its function.  The use of modular systems within the data centers design, where the characteristics of the modules are known and the steps to add more modules are simple, is an excellent method for achieving flexibility.

Another key component in achieving flexibility is scalability.  Scalability is the design concept of proactively planning for changing requirements.  A data center that is scalable has the capacity to sustain rapid growth in performance, the number of devices that it can host, and the quality of services offered.  Again, the use of modular systems is an excellent strategy to address growth without major disruptions. A data center achieves flexibility by implementing a modular IT and support infrastructure architecture allowing it to adapt quickly to unanticipated growth.

  • Simplicity

Like many old adages, the one about, 'keeping it simple,' is true, most especially for data centers.  The major benefits of simplifying within a data center design are - reduced change of failures due to human error (the most common cause of down time every year) - reduced cost for implementation - and easier systems monitoring, manageability, and maintainability. TGO works to fulfill our mission of creating satisfied customers by emphasizing pre-design and planning services to provide the optimal solutions to meet our clients' needs.  This results in an early and accurate alignment between scope, schedule and budget.



  System Integration

In a climate of rapid change, it is often easy to lose site of organizational goals and become entangled in the overwhelming issues involved with the implementation of new technologies. Integration of computer systems, database management tools, and network configurations, along with a host of other issues, require significant investments of time and expertise, which are typically unavailable during an initial implementation.

TGO brings knowledge and expertise required to solve the complex issues surrounding systems integration. With a solutions oriented approach, TGO works to provide clients with results, not simply technologies. From initial system design, TGO focuses on long term systems, network and database requirements, identify solutions which provide scalability and work to implement technologies within the frame work of the existing environments.

TGO's experience has included projects with an array of requirements from design and implementation of small network of Microsoft Windows platform dedicated to office automation functions to implementation of an Enterprise Scale Business Process Driven project as an enterprise wide solution in a heterogeneous client-server environment. TGO's range of systems integration services includes:

* UNIX System Implementation
* System Design
* System Security Design
* On-line Information Systems
* On Site Training

* TCP/IP Application Development
* PC/UNIX System Integration
* BPM Solutions Design & Development
* Network Design/Implementation
* Site System Support
