The extraordinary growth of Cloud Computing, Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence in the last decade has had a dramatic impact on Data Center scale, design and connectivity.
These services are the fastest growing among all large systems activities worldwide and have led to the development of new data center architectures, with Hyperscale Data Centers being built in clusters and multiple Co-location data centers being built in campus environments.
A Data Center is more than a space that simply houses servers and network equipment – it´s a system. The term “system” is defined as “a set of interacting or interdependent entities, real or abstract, forming an integrated whole.
Within the Data Center, the various entities that make up the system work together to protect and manage both current and future equipment, the data transmitted, and the thousands of connections between servers and switches and the outlying areas of the network.
All these entities are interrelated and connected by the structured cabling system, which designers and end-users are striving to design for better scalability, flexibility, manageability, availability and lower total cost of ownership.
We know that designing a Data Center structured cabling system is a complex and often confusing task with many options to weigh and consider, and we’re here to help.
