Tyco Electronics Plugs into IBM Modular Data Centers
Dec 14, 2010 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
BM's EMDC solution delivers a large-scale data center that allows customers to better meet unpredictable demands by providing smaller, repeatable increments of capacity - in the same way memory is added to a laptop. By designing with smaller modules, clients can scale the data center when needed to better align their business and IT needs without disruption to existing operations.
"Modular data centers make it easier for large companies to meet capacity demand, improve data center availability and reduce IT capital and operating costs," says Stephen Mitchell, Vice President of the Enterprise Networks business unit of Tyco Electronics.
"Customers using modular data centers can save 40 to 50 percent in capital and operational costs over the lifetime of their data center," said Steven Sams, IBM Vice President Global Site and Facilities Services. "Our data centers not only help customers save, but it also helps them save on energy consumption and become more efficient."
"EMDC customers get powerful efficiency-related benefits with our modular cabling technology," says Mitchell, "which is why we're collaborating with IBM to bring their vision of modular, plug-and-play data centers to the market."
As part of a supplier agreement with Tyco Electronics based upon IBM client requirements, the Enterprise Modular Data Center solution can now be deployed with Tyco Electronics' pre-terminated, modular cabling systems, including the IBM Fiber Transport System-T Line which is a specialized offering of high-performance plug and play pre-terminated cabling that provides customers with scalable support of critical data center links.
The EMDC may also be supported by Tyco Electronics' SigmaLink high-performance bundled twisted pair copper cabling solutions. This includes shielded and UTP copper cabling systems ranging from Category 5e, to 10Gb/s Category 6A, to TE's highest performing fully shielded category 7A system.
With Global access to Tyco Electronics' comprehensive line of copper cabling systems, clients can meet the structured cabling requirements of EMDC customers around the world. "Our global footprint and broad portfolio of data center and network cabling solutions aligns with IBM's vision for the future of data centers," says Mitchell.
