Large Data Center Location Decisions
Gregory Parnell, Research Professor, University of Arkansas
At the end of the fiscal year, a government organization used its unobligated funds to order servers. When the servers began arriving there were no data centers available in the organization with the power, cooling, and floor space to house them. This presentation provides the story of how decision analysis was used to identify the problems and develop a decision analysis methodology that was used five times by government agencies to determine the best location for their next data centers.
