The Data Center Dilemma- Building For Efficiency and An Unknown Future

William-Oconnell2 William O'Connell September 26, 2013

Data Center DilemmaThe internet has changed everything. Connectivity and faster data speeds have created an addiction to internet protocol (IP)where society has reached a point that being able to share images, updates and video is a must. The growing need for IP has resulted in a massive amount of data that shows no signs of topping out. In turn, this growth causes a data center dilemma in which challenges for optimizing power and operational efficiency occur.

Some of the options available to resolve this dilemma are intelligent infrastructure solutions such as DCIM, high-speed flexible cabling and intelligent lighting. What do you think is the optimal solution for your data challenge? Some believe these are too costly or not entirely well-thought-out from the perspective on an all-encompassing solution. With technology moving at a rapid pace, there are many aspects to the challenge that must be considered.

To learn more about these trending data center dilemmas and available intelligent solutions, CommScope will host a one-day webinar in six languages starting with my presentation on October 1 at 10 a.m. IST (11 a.m. GMT). The presentation, Data Centre Dilemma –Building For Efficiency and An Unknown Future, will feature material on this topic and dive further into this discussion.
