Certified Data Center Facilities Operations Manager (CDFOM) ®

Gain in-depth knowledge of managing data center operations from planning to monitoring and reporting


Why should you go for this course?

Managing the facilities of today’s high-end and high-availability data centers is an extremely demanding and complex task which is often underestimated. There is often very little appreciation and understanding of the complexities of managing today’s mission-critical data centers where downtime is not an option, especially since many of the data centers are operating at, or near, their design limits. Operations management at the facilities layer makes all the difference. Even a data center designed to the highest redundancy level as per the ANSI/TIA-942 standard could still experience many unscheduled downtime events due to poor planning, operations, maintenance and management processes.
