Start-to-finish Capacity Planning ExpertiseAlways Accurate CFD

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.

  • 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’re able to meet all capacity requirements, as well as have available resources in case of a failover situation.
  • Create a 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 your data center with start-to-finish capacity management support.
