The CIO has tasked you with designing the Data Center and choosing a new location. Data Tier Corporation is currently using 1 Petabyte of data including company proprietary-commerce information and client account information, but wants your design to be able to handle future growth.

By choosing Option 1, your design will need to prioritize Server (i.e.; CPU & Memory) growth over Storage growth to address the company’s strategic goal of server consolidation, without sacrificing performance. For this option, you are providing increased processing power and memory through Server growth to ensure you meet the performance requirements of the online storefront. You will need to provide enough rack space to host the current number of servers and provide enough room for 10% server growth.

For your design, you must design a Data Center within the following constraints:

· Server Rack

· Make use of 750 – 1000 physical servers (40 – 60 racks)

· Able to handle 1 Petabyte – 5 Petabyte of storage. (1 – 5 racks)

The company is currently using 10 Petabytes of data including Patient Records, propriety Employee and hospital information but wants your design to be able to handle future growth.

By choosing Option 2, your design will need to prioritize Storage growth over Server (i.e.; CPU & Memory) growth to address the company’s strategic goal of consolidating all patient records, hospital data and doctor/personal information/insurance data. For this option, you will need to provide enough rack space to host the current amount of storage and provide enough room for 20% Storage growth.

For your design, you must design a Data Center within the following constraints:
