3. Data centers' intricate design

Data centers are important structures that hold vital information for businesses, schools, public agencies, and private individuals. If these mission critical facilities aren't properly designed and equipped, the gear inside and the data the servers handle is at risk.

4. Data centers' intricate design: HVAC

Data centers are important structures that hold vital information for businesses, schools, public agencies, and private individuals. HVAC systems must be designed with efficiency in mind.
