Recently I asked what best practices in the data center were of interest to you, so that we could write about topics that were relevant to our viewers.  Thank you for all of the votes so far.  If you have not already voted, there is good news!  We are keeping the polls open one more week.  So please check the box on what you want to hear about.

While waiting for the polls to close, I’ll share what the current tally is: 

Where did your vote rank? The poll is still open.

Our readers have varied interests – no single topic has over 15% of the votes so far.  The winning topic as of today relates to providing structured cabling that best supports an efficient HVAC system.  I can certainly understand the interest here, especially for those based close to me in Dallas, TX.  We just broke the record for most days of 100F temperature or higher in a year!   When does autumn get here?

I also found it interesting that voters were fairly comfortable with MPO solutions, but had more interest in how to test them.  It seems the market has done a good job of explaining the need for these solutions to support high bandwidth applications, but now those of you that are installing these into your data centers really need to understand how to test them.

We will discuss these topics and more in upcoming articles.  Remember to vote for the topic that you would most like us to blog about.
