Pre-ter­mi­nated so­lu­tions are suited to data cen­ter en­vi­ron­ments

Voice&Data - - STRUCTURED CABLING -

We can see that time is be­com­ing an im­por­tant fac­tor in to­day’s ICT de­ci­sions. Pre-ter­mi­nated so­lu­tions are start­ing to be im­ple­mented more reg­u­larly now, as th­ese of­fer a num­ber of ad­van­tages for a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent net­work in­stal­la­tions, and are par­tic­u­larly suited to data cen­ter en­vi­ron­ments for rea­sons of time sav­ing, space sav­ing, cool­ing and se­cu­rity.

It is, how­ever, im­por­tant to rec­og­nize that to reap all the ben­e­fits that a preter­mi­nated so­lu­tion of­fers, there is a se­ri­ous amount of plan­ning that needs to be car­ried out prior to in­stal­la­tion. At­ten­tion to de­tail in the site sur­vey process and the en­su­ing plan is crit­i­cal or th­ese ben­e­fits will be lost or ad­di­tional costs will be in­curred.

It can be seen that green data cen­ters have be­come a nec­es­sary trend among or­ga­ni­za­tions as they are look­ing for ways to re­duce cor­po­rate en­ergy con­sump­tion and be more en­vi­ron­men­tally re­spon­si­ble. Data cen­ters are an in­te­gral part of many tech­nol­ogy-in­ten­sive busi­nesses. The ap­petite of data cen­ters for en­ergy, has made costs as­so­ci­ated with data cen­ters a sig­nif­i­cant con­cern.

To­day, or­ga­ni­za­tions are im­ple­ment­ing more dig­i­tal themes and to tackle this you re­quire a stronger net­work in­fras­truc­ture. There­fore there are con­scious ef­forts be­ing un­der­taken to im­prove the en­ergy ef­fi­ciency of data cen­ters. En­ergy ef­fi­ciency in data cen­ters is a grow­ing con­cern that all the or­ga­ni­za­tions share.

Or­ga­ni­za­tions should look at their re­quire­ment be­fore they de­cide on the bud­get. We have seen on many oc­ca­sions that price has de­cided the so­lu­tion a cus­tomer has re­ceived. To en­able to cus­tomer to get an op­ti­mum and fu­ture proof net­work they must first look into the re­quire­ment. Layer 1 in­fras­truc­ture for the net­work is con­stantly over­looked even though it is a sys­tem that will serve the long­est du­ra­tion of time.

Fu­ture proof­ing a net­work is es­sen­tial to any busi­ness be­cause of the rapid ex­pan­sions and growth of re­quire­ments, so it’s best to look at the fu­ture when im­ple­ment­ing to­day’s so­lu­tions. It is im­por­tant to en­sure that if at any time there is an up­grade to be done then the pre­vi­ous lay­out will al­low it.
