DC Checks - Your standardized IT and Data Center checks
We are moving from the industrial age to a data-driven age characterized by the rapid digital transformation of all industries worldwide, which is also described as the "Fourth Industrial Revolution". In the process, the global growth of all data generated and exchanged is growing at an ever-increasing rate. The global data sphere amounted to about 1 zettabyte in 2012, but will have grown to 175 zettabytes by 2025. That is why we also speak of the so-called "zettabyte era".
Fast and Efficient Data Center Analysis
This era poses special challenges for Data Centers and IT infrastructure. Here, it is necessary to keep pace with the rapid growth in data consumption, data creation and data reproduction. Moreover, it is essential to comply with climate targets, such as the 1.5 degree target, which aims to limit the global temperature increase fueling climate change to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
The changes in the IT and data center environment are accordingly diverse and extremely dynamic. To ensure that you do not lose sight of the big picture, High Knowledge offers you several review procedures – what we call "DC Checks". With these, you can quickly and easily identify optimization opportunities, recognize nonconformities with applicable standards and specifications and whether and where there is a need for action, security gaps exist, where and how you can reduce your energy consumption and save emissions.
The free DCINFRA Check uses compiled questions and evaluation criteria from our data center experts to guide you towards a statement as to whether your data center complies with current norms, standards and security requirements. Is there an acute need for action? The DCINFRA Check shows you where you currently stand with your data center or IT infrastructure and uncovers any weak points.
Based on your answers, we perform comprehensive analyses and take into account more than 250 evaluation criteria of your data center infrastructure developed by us. The assessment is always professional, independent and validated by accredited data center experts. The DCINFRA Check thus gives you an initial assessment and shows the potential of your data center and provides you with initial recommendations for action in the event that weaknesses are uncovered. The more questions you answer, the more detailed our assessment will be for you. The results are presented to you in a visual representation that is easy to understand.
