Thorough and Accurate Feasibility and Planning Services
CEG’s decades of being a trusted advisor to the data center industry gives us a unique and valued perspective on what’s required for successful growth and/or improved efficiency. With our Feasibility and Planning services, you’ll fully understand the risks, availability, and capacity potential of your new, expanded, or remodeled data center.
Data Center Planning to Optimize Space, Capacity, Efficiencies
All of CEG’s assessments include an end-to-end review of your data center’s infrastructure, identifying any key areas of constraint or points of failure. We’ll also provide a roadmap for remediation that will positively impact facility PUE and CUE. With those recommendations and roadmap in hand, CEG can also assist you with all the planning that’s required to build a new facility or right-size existing space. We can help you achieve higher reliability and efficiency while keeping timing and budget top-of-mind.

CEG’s Start-to-finish Capacity Planning Expertise
CEG combines real-time, best-of-breed environmental monitoring solutions with CFD modeling to provide a complete picture of your critical infrastructure. This greater insight allows for new levels of capacity planning accuracy. You’re able to better prepare for and provision the incoming volume and velocity of server, storage, and network equipment, thereby achieving operational goals the first time around.
Determine components required for provisioning a new equipment. CEG considers utilization and existing capacity of rack space, rack power, UPS power, upstream breaker or panel power, cooling, fiber or data port connectivity at the rack, patch panels, and switches.
Utilize real-time data to determine current usage level of the required components. CEG will look to leverage stranded capacity for space, power, and networking.
Ensure you’ll meet all capacity requirements, as well as have available resources in case of a failover situation.
Plan for provisioning new equipment and assist you in gaining consensus with IT, network, and facilities teams.
Use CFD Modeling to ensure accuracy. We’ll create and analyze “what-if” scenarios ranging from high-density deployments to equipment failures.
From assessments and planning to procurement and installation, CEG will provide start-to-finish capacity management support.
Modular Data Centers for Urgent Capacity Need
If your critical infrastructure simply needs more space, modular data center design may be ideal. Modular data centers offer a solid, cost effective option for adding floor space or power and cooling capacity. In situations where time is limited, or other special constraints apply, a modular data center design merits consideration. Contact CEG to assess your current environment and anticipated capacity needs to determine if modular space is the right decision for you.
