Data Centers

Data Center - Cable ConceptsIT operations are a crucial part of an organized structured operations around the globe.

Companies count on their information systems to run their business’. It’s imperative to have reliable infrastructure for IT operations in order to minimize any chance of system disruption which could cause company operations to become impaired or shut down completely. Data Centers require a secure external conditions to deter any security violations.

To in sure the integrity and function of its hosted computer settings a data center must keep high standards. This is achieved through repetition of both fiber optic cables and power which is assisted by emergency back up power generation.

Technology infrastructure design addresses the telecommunications cabling systems that run throughout data centers. There are cabling systems for all data center environments, including horizontal cabling, voice, modem, and facsimile telecommunications services, premises switching equipment, computer and telecommunications management connections, keyboard/video/mouse connections and data communications. Wide area, local area, and storage area networks should link with other building signaling systems (e.g. fire, security, power, HVAC, EMS).

Low-voltage cable routing

Data cabling is typically routed through overhead cable trays in modern data centers. But some are still recommending under raised floor cabling for security reasons and to consider the addition of cooling systems above the racks in case this enhancement is necessary. Smaller/less expensive data centers without raised flooring may use anti-static tiles for a flooring surface. Computer cabinets are often organized into a hot aisle arrangement to maximize airflow efficiency.
