How To Simplify A Hybrid Cloud Deployment

The evolution of cloud has seen many businesses move from private to public cloud platforms, and it has become evident that while some workloads and applications require a private, dedicated environment, others operate more efficiently on a public cloud platform.

No cloud is a one-size-fits-all solution, so increasingly we see organizations adopt hybrid or multi-cloud infrastructures to support varying requirements for different business units. This raises the question of where to begin to simplify enterprise IT architecture. Often, the best starting point may be foundational – the data center.

How Colocation Supports Multi-Cloud Solutions

Rather than distributing the IT architecture across a growing number of data centers many businesses find value by locating the enterprise layer of their architecture in the same data center as the cloud providers they employ today, and establishing direct connections to cloud service providers.

The resulting solution achieves higher performance at a lower total cost by providing the following key benefits:

  • Enhances business performance by eliminating or reducing latency inherent in connecting and integrating multiple clouds and supporting service providers
  • Reduces cost and complexity by reducing the number of network connections required to support the architecture
  • Ensures competitive pricing on a wide array of network products connecting the enterprise premises to the network-rich, cloud-enabled data center
  • Enables flexibility in the enterprise architecture by ensuring that changes can be supported on a real-time basis

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.
