1,000s of Decisions

Although the structure of Centercore allows for incremental growth and future flexibility, many decisions about its design were made ahead of time, according to Eric Wells, VP, data center services, at Fidelity Investments. Fidelity IT and facilities experts sat down and made "literally thousands of decisions" and eventually developed a datacenter that can be built in stages, off-site, and then moved into place, Wells says.

Companies using the Centercore design are making their own decisions about the power and cooling infrastructure components, as well as the technology deployed in the datacenter, such as servers, switches, storage and networking.
