Supporting low-latency data applications and ‘standard’ telco services in the same facility will require operators to develop two different mindsets. At the same time as supporting the “rip and replace” data center approach, it will also be necessary to support the evolving needs of the traditional central office infrastructure over a long lifetime. But, as with any change in approach, it’s inevitable that planning and managing converged services in central offices will require its own best practices – and offer its own unique challenges.
Facebook’s new solar project will see its Newton County data center hub powered by 100% renewable energy. Walton Electric Membership Corporation (EMC) has signed a contract with Silicon Ranch on behalf of Facebook for a new solar project as part of its agreement to supply the renewable energy that will be used to power Facebook’s data center in Newton County, Georgia.
Data centers are popping up all over the Midwestern U.S. region to support the ever-growing demand for bandwidth and data, and many of them are reaching capacity. Heartland recognized this fact as an opportunity to diversify its portfolio, and set its designs on converting it’s central office into a new colocation data center with help from Graybar, Corning and Schneider Electric.
LC reversible uniboot patch cords are terminated with premium grade zirconia ceramic ferrule connectors and supplied with either a single 2.4 mm or 2.0 mm diameter duplex cable to improve space saving and flexibility in your #datacenter
DCI is no longer just about data centers — it’s important for organizations to interconnect their data centers with cloud service providers (CSPs), global internet exchanges (IXs) and their customers’ and partners’ networks. They need the flexibility to connect their physical locations with CSPs and IXs to deliver truly cloud-centric solutions.
Stack Infrastructure has acquired a purpose built, Tier III data center with 17 acres for future development in New Albany, Ohio. The campus is positioned within the ‘Golden Triangle,’ a geographic area linking Northern Virginia, Northern New Jersey, and Chicago, where the majority of data transmission in the U.S. occurs, resulting in robust fiber-optic and electrical infrastructure.
Panduit received three Cabling Innovation Awards from Cabling Installation & Maintenance. Receiving the platinum award is Panduit’s PoE Extenders that extend Power over Ethernet (and data) beyond the 100-meter channel. Receiving Gold Awards were Lucas Oil Stadium, which uses OmniStream™, Atlona’s AV over IP solution and the Codisa Data Center.
The more data center managers know about extending the life of their equipment and infrastructure, the better prepared they’ll be to influence the procurement process and take advantage of funds that do become available. Two tactics to consider are: Dark fiber. Many ISPs installed more fiber than was initially needed and dark fiber can be activated and leased; and extend the life of existing fiber optic connections by upgrading termination equipment.
Download this editorial guide to learn about the trends impacting data center interconnects. The data center interconnect space has seen a wealth of innovation – which means a lot of choices for network operators. From the physical layer to the application of artificial intelligence and open system concepts, the data center interconnect space is rapidly evolving.
Energy costs related to cooling account for approximately 37% of the overall data center power consumption and are one of the fastest rising data center operational costs! Join Panduit September 25, 10am CST to learn how effective airflow management products can reduce energy costs.
