BICSI Releases New Data Center Standard

(Data Center) Permanent link

BICSI LogoOn Monday BICSI announced the release of its newest standard, BICSI 002-2010, Data Center Design and Implementation Best Practices. A BICSI press release concerning the new standard explains that with the push for greater capacity, increased efficiency and higher levels of utilization, data centers have become more complex to design and bring on-line. Due to this, today’s data center designer is often required to have knowledge in mechanical, electrical and telecommunications systems—areas not typically found in the same reference manuals or standards.

BICSI 002 addresses this need. Written to complement existing standards, within its pages are requirements, recommendations and additional information that should be considered when planning and building a data center, such as site selection, layout, thermal systems and security.

“BICSI 002 is a great resource for data center designers and operators because it provides a wealth of information on the subjects important to this audience—all in one place,” said Jonathan Jew, Co-chair of the Data Center Standards Subcommittee and lead editor of the standard. “It is the culmination of the efforts of more than 150 subject matter experts in a wide variety of disciplines related to data center design.”

BICSI’s Standards Committee is comprised of more than 200 members from around the globe. Established in 2004, the Data Center Subcommittee has put in significant time and expertise approving BICSI 002.

“This is truly a great achievement for BICSI and our membership as BICSI 002-2010, Data Center Design and Implementation Best Practices is the ultimate standard for anyone working in the data center arena,” said Brian Hansen, RCDD, NTS, CSI, BICSI President. “I’d like to extend a thanks to all of the Data Center Subcommittee members for their hard work and dedication in producing what we believe to be the most comprehensive data center standard to date.”  Kim Ream, Sr. eCommerce Specialist

CPI Technical Support has this new Standard and we have started referencing it already. It is a great one to have available on your bookshelf along with all of the other standards. If you are working in or with Data Centers globally, then I highly recommend this one. The key is to not just let them rest on the shelf, USE them!
