Certificate in Advanced Data Center Infrastructure Design

With businesses relying on computers and data for carrying out their core business functions, there was a need to have a place to store the data. Data centres have become a key factor for delivering data services for fundamental operations of businesses. However, not all businesses can own data centres. Therefore, there are various ways in which a business can own a part or the entire data, based on its need. This course, therefore initially explains the infrastructural needs of a data centre. It discusses the best practices that need to be considered while constructing a data centre structure. You will learn about the technical requirements and network topology of a data centre. It also covers different types of server farms and explains the structure and variety of server farms. This short-term course is designed for IT architects who design and integrate solutions in multi-site, large enterprise, virtualised environments. Successful candidates possess a deep understanding of data centre design principles and methodologies as well as core components and their relation to storage and networking.
