Network infrastructure expert Siemon has launched an online video demonstrating how the company's VersaPOD data center cabinet solution addresses critical requirements in today's data centers: achieving greater density, improving thermal efficiency and providing greater equipment accessibility.
"With data center real estate at a premium and energy consumption on the rise, pressure on IT infrastructure and cabling has increased," explains Graeme Stoker, Marketing Manager at Siemon EMEA. "This video illustrates how the VersaPOD cabinet can deliver real improvements in energy efficiency, floor space utilization and improved data center workability."
The brief video demonstrates how the VersaPOD's exclusive Zero U patching capability leverages the vertical space between bayed cabinets for patching and cable management. This Zero-U vertical patching configuration can support up to 1152 ports of copper or 5184 fibers between every set of VersaPODs, freeing up critical horizontal rack space for active equipment - achieving optimum density in the minimum floor space.
The VersaPOD video goes on to show how network equipment in the cabinet can easily be accessed via unique dual hinged, wardrobe and quad hinged style doors which offer maximum thermal efficiency through 71 per cent perforation. Typical VersaPOD applications are also highlighted, including network server and storage topologies and their related patching and cable routing options.
In addition to the live-action video, an interactive 3d demonstration and animated video walk-through are also available.
