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.
