Panduit's Approach to the Cloud Data Center Ensures Optimal Design
By Susan J. Campbell, TMCnet Contributing Editor
The typical data center today varies greatly from the data center of just a decade ago. Today, the amount of data being consumed is driving a very different demand in the industry. At the same time, the push for more efficient operations is putting a strain on traditional deployment and management methods, driving a need for virtual data center solutions.
This virtual environment helps to create better control, confidence on layer 1 stability, more time for a proactive and strategic approach and the ability to minimize outages.
These benefits are standard with the cloud data center solutions offered by Panduit. The company supports this mission-critical facility as the enterprise moves away from the silo-based approach to the design, deployment and management of the physical infrastructure. And, unless companies are willing to adopt a new approach to the data center, the constantly changing and complex IT landscape will contribute to significant challenges as unique demands cannot be met.
As captured in a recent Panduit piece, the physical infrastructure must be able to support the data center requirements. Such architectures are introducing the enterprise to new heights of flexibility, agility and efficiency in the management of IT. Critical infrastructure considerations exist, however, for the enterprise wanting to realize these benefits.
Panduit has a reputation for drawing on its deep expertise in cloud data center designs based on best practices throughout the global market. Panduit’s offerings enable the integration of the physical and the logical architecture to create a robust and scalable physical infrastructure.
The solution addresses control and visibility of documentation and real-time data processes; the convergence of high-speed data applications and new technologies; process improvement to deliver operational efficiency; capacity management; and high-density application support through modular pods that ensure reliable and consistent deployments that also reduce infrastructure costs and risks.
Intelligent data center solutions from Panduit allow for the creation of the virtual data center to ensure simple specification and faster implementation. It also streamlines the process of specifying, designing, installing and managing of the complex infrastructure critical to the optimization of the cloud data center.
In taking this approach, Panduit helps the enterprise to identify and enjoy the improvements that increase the interoperability, functionality and manageability of mission critical processes and operations across the enterprise as a whole. Leveraging a partner ecosystem, Panduit is perfectly positioned to support the development and operation of the cloud data center according to the needs of the enterprise. A complete lifecycle of services ensures a comprehensive approach with lasting results.
