Panduit's Enterprise Solutions Meet the Changing Demand of Today's Data Center

In today’s enterprise, the demand centers on high speed require high quality and high security. The enterprise solutions that meet all three requirements are more likely to be adopted as core functions to support the strategic goals of the organization. Thanks to Panduit, High Speed Data Transport (HSDT) Solutions address these needs from a data center standpoint to enable the enterprise to effectively compete in an intense market.
Panduit’s HSDT Solutions, according to a recent white paper, are made up of a set of complementary copper and optical fiber technologies designed specifically for mission critical data center applications, compute requirements, spanning storage and cutting edge architectures. With a clear understanding of the needs surrounding today’s businesses and the technology challenges that impact the data center, Panduit’s enterprise solutions
ensure systems reliability, high network performance, energy efficiencies and even seamless integration.
Enterprise solutions are needed within the enterprise to support the changing data center pro forma. No longer solely focused on information processing, data centers process
, manage and store increasing volumes of data used for business intelligence and furthering the competitive efforts of the organization. To do so, organizations are increasingly adopting consolidation techniques and strategies to reduce the number of IT assets, lower the cost of real estate, and reduce the number of networks.
To that end, virtualization allows the organization to reduce the number of physical devices needed for any single application to eventually increase server utilization and lower capital costs. Without the right enterprise solutions or planning, virtualization has the potential to significantly strain the LAN and SAN infrastructure. The same amount of network bandwidth is needed to support the physical server whether it has been virtualized or not, and the reliability of the network becomes much more critical.
Panduit had these challenges in mind when it designed the HSDT solutions. These enterprise solutions will improve the throughput, availability and latency of the network. Plus, the superior Bit Error Rate (BER) produces a lower Packet Error Rate for the entire network, conserving the overall valuable network bandwidth. At the same time, the enterprise solutions from Panduit are designed to improve availability and reduce latency.
With its innovative approach to technology innovations and enterprise solutions to address the real-world needs of today’s data center, Panduit works to enable the enterprise and the smaller organization to overcome challenges and implement proven solutions that allow for the gathering, management and storage of intelligent data.
Leaning on its best-in-class partner ecosystem, Panduit is well positioned to understand the current challenges that exist and develop the enterprise solutions that meet those challenges both today and in the future.
