Data Center Cable Infrastructure

VIAVI Solutions Inc

Data Centers vary widely in nature and can be roughly classified as hyperscale, multi-tenant, and private. A critical and common component in the operation of such data centers is the installation and maintenance of the physical cabling infrastructure. A fundamental change taking place is the evolution from cables using classic connectors on copper (RJ-45) or fiber optics (LC) to cables terminated by pluggables such as SFP or QSFP. This represents a new challenge as these cables, called Active Optical Cable (AOC) or Direct Attach Copper (DAC), are not easily validated and tested.

Multi-Site Data Center Unification and Preparing for Edge Compute

Dell EMC

In spite of the clear success of the hyperscale public cloud providers, many organizations – due to cost, control, refactoring complexity and data sovereignty issues – are choosing to host many workloads with regional cloud service providers (CSP), in colocation/interconnection facilities or to simply keep workloads on-premise. These data center operators, whether xSP or enterprise, typically already manage multiple data centers today. With the growth of IoT and edge compute on the horizon, they need to prepare to deploy and manage 10’s if not 100’s of mini- and micro-data centers in the future. It is critical that data center operators review and analyze their networking approach to multi-site data center architecture now in order to streamline operations and costs today and to prepare for the IoT and edge compute tsunami of tomorrow.
