Data Center Operations & Maintenance | Standards Michigan

Data Center Operations & Maintenance

There are about 10 US-based organizations competing for some part of the Data Center space. There are many more operating internationally at a blistering pace. In future posts we will try to corral them all in a fashion that can provide meaningful guidance to ICT professionals working in the education industry in all nations.

Data Center Operations & Maintenance

Information and communications technology (ICT) is a fast-moving economic space in which a mix of consensus, consortia and open-source standards form the broad contours of leading practice.   ICT standards tend to follow international developments — more so than, say, fire safety standards which are more familiar to education facility leadership.  All school districts, colleges, universities and university-affiliated health care systems have significant product, system, firmware and labor resources allocated toward ICT.

The Building Industry Consulting Service International (BICSI) is a professional association supporting the advancement of the ICT community in all markets.   This community is roughly divided between experts who deal with “outside-plant” systems and “building premise” systems on either side of the ICT demarcation (or Point-of-Presence).   BICSI standards cover the wired and wireless spectrum of voice, data, electronic safety & security, project management and audio & video technologies.  Its work is divided among several committees:

The stars on the map above indicate where BICSI Standards are currently in use (CLICK ON IMAGE).

BICSI has released for public review a new consensus document that contributes to the understanding of ICT enterprises in the education industry and others: BICSI 009 Data Center Operations and Maintenance Best Practices.   It provides requirements, recommendations, and best practices for the operation and maintenance of data centers including but not limited to standard operating procedures, emergency operating procedures, maintenance, governance, and management.
