Selecting the ideal enclosure for a data center IT network can positively impact the entire service life of the network and its infrastructure. Conversely, putting the wrong type of enclosure in place will adversely affect the network for the long term. To ensure the proper enclosure type is specified, data center administrators should ask and answer three critical questions before building the network and infrastructure. This webcast seminar, produced by Cabling Installation & Maintenance and delivered by Rittal Corporation’s training supervisor Steve Sullivan, discusses design considerations, the importance of redundancy and resiliency, and cooling trends as they relate to IT enclosures.
In his presentation, Sullivan will provide detail on topics including space and application considerations, greenfield vs. existing-space environments, efficiency concerns, and design considerations—including cable management systems.
