Today’s data center operators realize the value in viewing their mission-critical facilities and data centers as a single, integrated system to improve overall performance and reliability. When all systems, technologies and personnel work together throughout a data center’s lifecycle, companies can experience optimum results and achieve maximum output.. This new paradigm disrupts the traditional lifecycle perspective, namely focusing on each isolated, specialized data center component.
Adopting this principle has enabled mission critical facility management leader Electronic Environments Corporation (EEC) to transform traditional infrastructure solution deliveries using a unique, holistic approach, Mission Critical Lifecycle Services (MCLS). MCLS offers a homogeneous approach to data center infrastructure that enables simplified management and overcomes the evolving challenges of data center operators. Creating a paradigm shift from traditional infrastructure lifecycle management, EEC views data centers as one unified structure, addressing all five interrelated areas of the mission-critical facilities lifecycle.
EEC provides data center operators with the right information and guidance based on years of proven industry experience. For nearly three decades, EEC’s experts have encountered a wide array of infrastructure design flaws, bringing these experiences forward to the planning phase in order to produce a highly efficient infrastructure plan.
2. Design Management
From site feasibility studies to selection analyses or design engineering, EEC’s value exceeds that of typical data center design firms in that it broadens its focus to include the design of facilities’ full lifecycle. EEC takes into account the construction, maintenance and serviceability for each unique project – and has done so since inception.
Over the years, EEC team members have been entrusted with constructing over 20 million square feet of data center space. As a result, the EEC team has proven experience in construction management, design build, cost estimation, project management, scheduling, equipment procurement, building evaluation, pre-construction, commissioning management, sustainability / Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Building Information Modeling (BIM) and quality assurance and control (QA/QC).
4. Operations & Maintenance (O&M)
For the last 28 years, EEC’s maintenance offerings have ensured the optimal performance and maximum uptime of customer sites. EEC offers monitoring, infrastructure training, legal and regulatory compliance, on-site facility management, mobile 7x24x365 service,; performance and acceptance testing procedures and benchmarking, predictive analysis and maintenance, and rigorous Statements of Work (SOWs) and Methods of Procedure (MOPs).
EEC customers have benefited from cost savings, reduced service calls, improved availability, vendor consolidation / convenience, and more from the integration of its services. Through offering these superior services, EEC has seen a 98% renewal rate, with clients continually reaping the benefits of the company’s constantly tested methodologies.
Today’s operators need to have a detailed and transparent view into their data center infrastructure and operations. This helps them identify areas for improvement as well as enhance their ability to meet evolving customer requirements. EEC provides assessments for reliability, energy efficiency, VFD retrofits, airflow management, CFD analysis, data center refresh, operational processes and quality to help customers meet new business and IT objectives.
EEC’s MCLS approach addresses all aspects of the mission-critical facilities lifecycle and offers operators peace of mind for their total data center environment from a single point of contact (POC). Having a single POC also leads to simplified data center management and increased productivity. EEC’s comprehensive response and rapid deployment capabilities also lead to high reliability and system availability.
Many EEC customers realize substantial cost reductions with EEC; customers selecting more than one service or solution benefit from lower rates through economies of scale. For enterprises or companies with multiple sites, leveraging a single provider like EEC across all facilities enables more manageable standardization and scale. Each EEC customer also receives custom predictive and preventative maintenance programs tailored to their specific needs.
