We offer a broad range of project expertise. We specialise in planning, designing, engineering, constructing, monitoring and maintaining data centers, computer rooms and mobile data centers that integrate, ‘best-of-breed’, critical infrastructure technologies. The result is an always available, scalable, redundant, fault-tolerant, manageable, and maintainable data center environment.

TechNocRacy is uniquely qualified to help your businesses assess their data center, computer room and mobile data centers and support infrastructure risks, provide recommendations for improvement and offer accurate project cost and guidance throughout implementation.

In today’s hyper-competitive markets, where you measure systems and facilities downtime in lost profits, TechNocRacy designs solutions that protect against some of the leading causes of downtime, hardware damage, data loss, and decreased productivity. TechNocRacy sets the standard for ‘always’ available solutions for data centers, computer rooms, mobile data centers, server rooms, network closets, telecommunications rooms and network operations centers.

A good plan is critical for a successful data center design, computer room design and mobile data centers project.

The three most important attributes of any good design are high-availability, flexibility, and simplicity.

High-Availability

availability flexibility simplicity image 2All data centers designs, computer rooms designs and mobile data centers 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 maximise availability, the impact from each of these must be minimised 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 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.

TechNocRacy works to fulfill our mission of creating satisfied customers by emphasising 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, budget and delivery of the data center.
