The second part of the project was a full update and renovation of the data center. Over time, this old classroom had grown into a full data center but now needed new power equipment, data racks and cooling equipment.
To manage the added challenge of no downtime during construction, the IDS team orchestrated a focused design process from start to finish. The final result was the due to the great communication and collaboration between internal and external team members working together to find creative and appropriate solutions. The final design documents for the project were like a set of do-it-yourself, step-by-step instructions!
The project was completed in February 2011 with absolutely zero downtime.
