The Importance of Network Switch Cooling

switchair_email_header1

Server room cooling is a constant challenge for data center managers. One crucial part of server rack equipment that needs to be maintained at optimum operating temperature is the network switch, usually mounted at the top rear of the cabinet for easier access to necessary cables. However, that location presents a problem for effective cooling as air from the cold aisle has further to travel to reach the back of the rack, and it also becomes contaminated by heated exhaust from other rack devices.

As density within the rack increases this problem becomes more acute. When network switches do not receive adequate amounts of cool air, it can result in hot spots and, potentially, overheated switches that can reduce the effective lifetime of the device. This is alleviated with Geist’s SwitchAir™ cooling system. SwitchAir delivers cool air directly to network devices regardless of where they are mounted. Meaning that, instead of contaminated air, switches receive the cooling directly.

THE PROBLEM WITH HIGH DENSITY FIBER ENCLOSURES – AND THE SOLUTION

blog_image_panduit_hdflex

High density fiber enclosures can maximize the amount of active equipment in a data center by minimizing the footprint of the networking infrastructure — but there’s a problem — all that fiber in a small amount of space creates problems when changes need to be made.

That fiber is usually directly behind the enclosure making it nearly impossible to reach in and remove a cassette, and even if you can, you will most likely disturb active circuits that are near the cassette that you are trying to move. The same is true for the front side of the enclosure. The number of fiber patch cords makes it extremely difficult to pull out a drawer making it nearly impossible to manage.

With Panduit HD Flex™ Fiber Cabling System the fiber management at the rear of the enclosure is all off to the side removing the big pile of slack fiber. The trays are split, or only half as wide as the enclosure itself. This makes it easier to slide the tray in and out when they are fully populated with cassettes or adapter panels.

Go to HD Flex landing page to see how to solve your real-world problems.

Description:
“7 major security trends you should be aware of”

Are you talking about the most important thing to you clients right now? Hint, it’s not managed services.

Your clients are moving to the cloud, connecting everything to the Internet, and going mobile in every way imaginable – Gartner expects 80% of small and medium businesses to be on some form of cloud technology within 5 years. The big question is, “How safe is their data?”

Find out exactly what big company boards are asking their CISOs for right now, and what every small and medium business leader must have before they can make a decision to add more budget to security.

In this one hour workshop, I’ll be showing you 7 major trends and how both large and small businesses are being affected. Second, I’ll show you the one big mistake just about every company is making as they transition to new technologies to grow their business. Finally, we’ll cover several critical mindsets that must change if companies are going to keep their data out of the hands of cybercriminals, hacktivists, and nation-states.

All attendees will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card.
