AND OMAN . in the last five years and how does sustainability play a part ?

The main aspects which differentiate today ’ s data centre designs compared to 5 – 10 years ago are smart solutions for power and cooling , operations monitoring and sustainability .
In the past , you would do the design for a data centre and consider the power and cooling requirements regardless of the activity going on inside the data centre , so the efficiency was very challenging .
Now , we consider different options and systems to optimise the power and cooling requirements to ensure providing the exact load requirements to the racks .
Furthermore , monitoring the performance of each rack , power consumed and heat generated inside the data centre . The software monitors all the racks and can control and balance the power and cooling requirements in the data centre to achieve maximum efficiency .
How do you adapt your strategy to cater to clients within different parts of the region ?
We have three main aspects to consider : the client ’ s requirements , the local regulations and the international standards . Basically , I collect the information regarding the client ’ s preferences and needs and then create a solution that matches the local regulations
