Abstract

This report shares important lessons learned from establishing small- to mid-size data centers. These data centers were established within their own organization and for client organizations within the United States government to support development and operations. Their current focus is to establish on-premises data centers that support modern DevSecOps practices and enabling technologies.

This report is intended to help information technology (IT) personnel and management who are responsible for designing and deploying data center technology to become familiar with topics that must be addressed for a successful outcome. While it is beyond the scope of the report to delve into all the details associated with implementing data center operations, it will help IT personnel and management get started.
