Global Trends Affecting Your Local Data Center

The Cloud

Clouds are gathering, and quickly. What does it mean for your data center?

Cloudy with a chance of infinite bandwidth

Cisco’s annual Global Cloud Index forecasts that the growth of worldwide Internet usage will grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 23 percent through 2018. Even with a significant jump in cloud storage, data centers will continue to be critical to operations as organizations keep sensitive functions within their own IT departments. Companies are turning to hybrid cloud implementations to keep information flowing seamlessly with more connectivity, security, and reliability.

What does this mean for your data center? You should reallocate some attention from switches and servers to your cabling infrastructure. Your users’ reliance on the cloud will make uptime even more...

The Internet of Things

Experts believe this trend offers organizations massive cost savings from maintenance to loss prevention.

The Internet of Things

The "Internet of Things" (IoT) – that ever-growing scenario in which every object becomes connected to the Internet. Not just users’ smart devices, but objects like refrigerators, fitness monitors, and other small appliances now have Internet connectivity directly built in or embedded for the ultimate convenience. Experts worldwide believe this trend offers organizations massive cost savings in categories ranging from maintenance to utilities to loss prevention.

What does that mean for your data center? Look at the rapid acceptance cycle of smartphones and tablets. As these devices quickly make their way into businesses, your data center will be required to rapidly...

The Connection of Everything

Ubiquitous connectivity will have a massive impact, even if some - or most - of the workload is being done by the cloud’s data centers and not yours.

The Connection of Everything

All of this ubiquitous connectivity will have a massive impact on your data center, even if some of the workload is being done by the cloud’s data centers. The "Internet of Things", combined with convergence of local area networks with adjacent IT services – from heating, venting, and air conditioning (HVAC) to cellular coverage to video security – are going to tax today’s and tomorrow’s on-premises data centers.

You’ll want to build an infrastructure that can keep up with all that. All of this convergence means you may find yourself needing faster speeds sooner than planned. Consider an infrastructure that allows deployment at the speeds you need today but able to...

It’s Not Just Your Data Center

Cloud users and their smart and IoT devices are out there in your local and wide area networks, driving demand.

Ubiquitous Connection Doesn’t Just Affect the Data Center

All of this connectivity isn’t just coming from inside the data center. Cloud users are out there in your local and wide area networks. While planning your data center’s future, make sure you are also looking at your LAN and WAN needs.

In-building communications networks have undergone substantial changes over the past decade. Only all-fiber infrastructures have the capacity for unlimited bandwidth to efficiently support soaring bandwidth needs. This shift from copper to fiber will be a crucial component of future-ready network planning. Fiber installations cost less to install and maintain, suffer less downtime, and require less networking hardware than copper systems. At...

Maximizing the Advantages of the MTP® Connector

Maximizing the Advantages of the MTP® Connector

Seasoned industry professionals may recall the excruciating, painstaking days of installing and connecting countless fibers, one at a time. As the number of data centers grew exponentially in the 2000s, designers and installers were tasked with managing hundreds and even thousands of single- and 2-fiber connector solutions. To accommodate the high volume of connectors within ever-tighter space constraints, installers and designers were forced to create more elaborate storage and routing solutions that came with their own set of challenges.

Fortunately, those days are long gone – thanks in large part to the emergence of the multi-fiber push-on (MPO) connector. The MPO format dramatically reduced the amount of time, effort, and space required to install and deploy network technologies, particularly in parallel optic applications.
