Solutions to Data Center Virtualization Challenges
When a data center is virtualized, the number of physical devices is consolidated to combine the work of multiple servers. This new configuration creates an increased demand in CPU, memory and I/O.
This higher utilization of servers increases demand on your physical infrastructure. Higher power density, cooling demands, and bandwidth requirements make it important to transform your data center into a Unified Physical Infrastructure.
Working with You to Improve Your Virtualized Data Center
As an extended part of your team, Panduit works with you to address virtualization challenges:
- Insufficient bandwidth — assessment and design services help determine bandwidth requirements and build a migration plan.
- High density server deployments exceed available cooling — Cabinets, Vertical Exhaust Duct (VED) and Cold Aisle Containment systems optimize cooling efficiency and save energy.
- High density server deployments exceed available power — Physical Infrastructure Manager™ (PIM™) software and PViQ™ Power Outlet Units enable real-time monitoring of power usage to manage dynamic workloads and avoid power overloads
