This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Provisioning and managing white space within a data centre (the primary place where the rubber meets the Internet highway)
Data centres are often build and parameters are decided by external
engineering and environmental factors and at the last possible moment
the white space is shoe horned into the design. This is true of many
co-location sites where the designs vary and change continuously during
the life time of operations of tenant occupancy. These fundamental
design choices are often problematic when populating a data centre or
during migration. I have previous written about "5 practices that need to be taken into account when migrating to a more modern data centre"
but this article will expand on provisioning and managing white space
within a data centre. The white space is afterall the primary place
where the rubber meets the Internet highway.
