Standards help to build data centers and develop equipment faster, safer and more sustainable. Altogether, there are dozens of standards that deal with data centers. If we go deeper into requirements for availability, security, infrastructure and construction installation, there are even more than a hundred. For an overview of the most important standards and best practices in the field of data centers, NEN has developed a guide for standards for data centers, together with the standards committee “data centers” and the Dutch Data Center Association (DDA). For the standards guide, visit www.nen.nl/wegwijzer data centers.
The DDA has also prepared a separate white paper that contains an overview of all relevant local standards that apply to data centers in the Netherlands. Download the white paper below.
