Data center due diligence

RSI acts as an advisor and supports and guides a potential investor and seller with land and facility due diligence for data centers and data center evaluation. Understanding the nature of a deal, the state of a facility, and local standards benefits both the investor and seller in terms of risk reduction and whether the deal matches the portfolio. In essence, due diligence helps make informed investment decisions regarding the potential deal.

land due diligence

The data center professionals at RSI provide critical guidance and consultation to investors on land acquisition and due diligence for future data center construction. We help review an asset real estate investment firms, investors, and data center provider services consider acquiring.

Real estate investors and data center provider services request RSI to check if the land they intend to purchase fits the data center investment. Our team of engineers and consultants then visit the site or conduct the desktop research using the documents provided by the requestor respectively and create the evaluation report under the Non-Disclosure Agreement.

facility due diligence

RSI’s facility due diligence report includes reviews and assessments of existing asset conditions, earthquake resistance, equipment age, building management systems, DCIM, CAPEX and OPEX, Tier levels/equivalents, energy efficiency, and potential points of failure.

Understanding security, processes, and applications at the data center is critical for the potential acquirer. Apart from the essential importance to SLA, these components are crucial profit generators, so familiarity with the costs and possible risks to the data center is the key.

To help secure the smooth acquisition, we created the due diligence service that addresses land evaluation for data center construction, existing data center IT systems architecture, networking, security, and applications. Understanding these critical aspects of a deal during the due diligence phase is often overlooked and should be included in this process.
