Data Center

The Data Center and Equipment Spaces go by many names. Regardless what you call it, the Data Center is the space or collection of enclosures that provides the environment for housing cables, terminations, cross-connects, network equipment and telecommunications equipment. Data centers should be designed to provide accommodation for growth and changes in evolving technologies.

  • How much room should be around my data rack?
    • The standard is 3' from the back of the rack to the wall, 3' of clearance on the front and at least 1' on each side. This space will allow work to be performed in and around the rack.
  • How big should my data room or Equipment Room (ER) be?
    • The standard Equipment Room (ER) size.
    • The amount of space allocated for the ER will be dictated by the size and variety of the systems that are installed and the size of the area that the room will serve.
      Serving Area
      (the size of the floor plan)
      Equipment Room Size Standard
      10,000 ft2 10’x11’
      8,000 ft2 10’x9’
      5,000 ft2 10’x7’
      Fewer than 5,000 ft2 Minimum 150 ft2 room
  • Do I need more than one data room or Equipment Room (ER)?
    • Maybe – the maximum data cable length is 300’, so if each workstation cable can make in 300 or less, one ER would work. Note cable does not run as the crow flies, it follows designed pathways and contains service loops.
