This Certified Data Center Professional course is designed to expose participants to the key components of the data center. They address effective methods of setting up and improving key aspects such as power, cooling, ICT, security, cabling, safety etc. to ensure a high-availability data center, while minding key operational and maintenance issues and concerns. CDCP training will also address key operations and maintenance aspects.
What Do Participants Learn?
After completion of the course the participant will be able to:
Describe all components that are important for high availability in a data centre and how to effectively setup the data centre
Choose an optimum site for mission-critical data centre based on current and future needs
Name and apply the various industry standards for data centre
Describe the various technologies for UPS, fire suppression, cooling, monitoring systems, cabling standards, etc, and to select and apply them effectively to cost-efficiently enhance the high-availability of the data centre.
Review the electrical distribution system to avoid costly downtime
Enhance cooling capabilities and efficiency in the data centre by using existing and new techniques and technologies for the increased cooling requirements of the future
