An annual assessment of the data center can capture the current base line metrics for the facility which can be used as input to the capacity planning and assessment. Info-Tech is offering a template – its Data Center Annual Review Checklist – to help data center managers capture the current base line metrics for capacity planning and assessment.

According to Info-Tech, an annual review of the data center will help organizations to:

  • Track physical conditions of the data center and its equipment.
  • Identify areas in the data center that may require refresh or upgrade.
  • Understand current capacity and plan for future data center needs.

The company’s checklist can be used to compare the current state against future requirements to provide IT with the required input to support future business needs.
