Data Center Commissioning: Early and Often

Presented by

Ryan Orr, Senior Consultant – Uptime Institute

About this talk

Ryan Orr, Uptime Institute Senior Consultant, discusses why data center commissioning is a relentless and continuous process that goes far beyond the last few days of construction prior to the facility being turned over to the owner. Commissioning is a process that begins as soon as the data center project is approved for conceptual design and progresses through the life-cycle phases creating a rigorous program that will reduce infant mortality rates, and ensures that the data center functions and operates as designed. Additionally, this presentation will highlight and provide emphasis on the importance of including the Operations team engrained in the commissioning process.
