The Data Center Life Cycle

Whether you are planning, building, or operating a data center, Alliance  has the expertise and services to support you throughout the many phases of the data center life cycle. 

PLAN:

While planning a data center project such as a new data center or expansion of an existing one, you can use our services in the early preparation and design phases to ensure a successful outcome in later phases of the project. 

ACQUISTION:

Alliance  has assisted our government and commercial customers with the complexities involved in the selection and acquisition / procurement of products and services from leading critical power and cooling manufacturers. 

BUILD:

As you build your facility, Alliance will manage your project smoothly from planning and acquisition through implementation to ensure an efficiently operating system delivered on time and on budget. 

OPERATE:

Alliance focuses on software and services to efficiently maintain your mission-critical applications. StruxureWare for Data Centers is a Schneider-Electric management software suite designed to plan, monitor, and operate the data center from server, to rack, to row, to room, and to building.  A unique DCIM suite that combines previously disparate offerings for monitoring, automation, planning, and implementation to provide a multifaceted, complete view of all data center functions.  StruxureWare software applications and suites simplify integration time, improve reliability, enhance visibility to energy information, and streamline operational efficiency. 

The result? A simple, integrated experience for users and groups who manage both the facility and IT infrastructure environments. Not only does the StruxureWare Software Suite streamline operational efficiencies, it enables intelligent energy management, helping data centers play a critical role in responding effectively to the energy crisis. 

MAINTAIN:

When it comes to maintaining and operating your mission-critical applications, your primary concern is keeping your equipment running at maximum efficiency and optimal performance. Proper care and regular maintenance will help you avoid unnecessary downtime, saving you headaches, time, and money.  Managing the maintenance of multiple equipment disciplines (UPS, cooling, generator, switchgear, etc.) can present challenges. Uncoordinated maintenance or lack of consistency in service delivery standards across disciplines elevates the risk of downtime due to human error.  The management of multiple vendors, schedules, and processes can lower overall operational efficiency in your business.  Alliance  services provide a one-stop-shop for all of your critical infrastructure service needs for all brands, and vendors.  We have the services you need to protect your investment, efficiency, and availability. Our comprehensive services portfolio is designed to ensure your applications receive the care they need to operate at optimal levels—at all times. Service plans (including on-site service plans), extended warranties, preventive maintenance, battery replacement services, and remote monitoring services may be ordered individually or as a comprehensive service package that can be customized to meet your specific site requirements.
