Data centres are not only becoming the primary repositories of data, but they also provide intelligent application and security functions. A data centre’s technical nature makes it vital that thorough and careful planning goes into designing and constructing a data centre. The changing nature of data centres‚ and the technology that impacts them‚ makes it even more critical that employees remain up to date on the current theories and best practices for issues around topics of power‚ cooling‚ efficiency, management‚ security‚ and design/site planning. The course is a stepping stone for a career in data centre environment from IT, network, data cabling or facilities management backgrounds.
