Certified Data Centre Facilities Operations Manager (CDCFOM) Data Centre & Management Certifications
Exam Code: CDCFOM
Managing the facilities of today’s hi-end and hi-availability data centers is an extremely demanding and complex task which is often under estimated. There is often very little appreciation and understanding of the complexities of managing mission critical data centers especially since many of the data centres are operating at, or near, their design limits and downtime is never an option.
The way a data center is managed at the facilities layer makes all the difference and even a data center designed to Tier-4 as per the ANSI/TIA-942 standard could still experience many unscheduled down time events due to poor planning, operations, maintenance and management processes.
