Ensuring the effective turnover from one data center operations shift to another is crucial to maintaining the stability and integrity of the enterprise infrastructure. Without a formal shift turnover process in place, incoming operators have no information on the status of critical data center systems, which leads to time consuming ad-hoc discovery of errors and unplanned downtime.
This downloadable tool provides a structured approach to recording the key status information that must be documented within a formal shift turnover process, including:
- HVAC state.
- UPS system status.
- Generator system status.
- Fire protection system status.
- Pending and completed changes.
- Status of daily operational activities.
This tool should be used by the supervisor in charge of the data center shift to complete a visual inspection of the environment and ensure a complete shift turnover process.
