Site Analysis

Analyzing proposed locations, planning and budgeting

Ascent’s solutions are rooted in the value of mission critical facilities: availability first – service with minimized risk of downtime. As a comprehensive data center solutions provider with experience in maintaining more than three million square feet of critical space, Ascent brings unique insight to all phases of a data center project. We understand the nature of mission critical facilities and how the facility, critical systems and operations are intertwined to create a complex, living facility.

Our Site Analysis and Selection service evaluates mission critical attributes that are necessary for your specific data center requirements and initiatives.

  • Where in the country do you want to be located?
  • What are your connectivity requirements, and how do we connect to those providers?
  • Where is the appropriate amount of cost-effective electricity?
  • What is the correct staffing model for your new critical facility?

After reviewing your requirements we analyze proposed locations and work up conceptual plans and budgets to develop the site. As a result, you get the answers you need to determine whether a particular site addresses your immediate and long-term critical needs.
