Control over your costs with data center solutions

Data centers have to handle large sets of numbers, especially when it comes to their own costs. For example, a 500m² security category IV data center needs to budget an impressive €2,956,500.00 for electrical fittings and €1,398,250.00 for air conditioning. Even the network cabling comes to €175,000.00. All in all, this example results in total costs of €15,765.73 per square meter and running costs of €4,667,540.00 over a period of five years.* Several good reasons to consult CHG-MERIDIAN and to gain transparency of your costs.
