Practical design of a modern data centre

I describe the development of a generic data centre design for HP’s own use, which will have a PUE of 1.2. I then go on to describe how ideas from this design were adapted to suit a new data centre design for a client who already had Planning permission, and therefore required a solution for a building whose outline was already fixed.
