What do the holidays and today’s data center have in common? They both require the proper amount of planning and organization in order for them to run smoothly. Staying organized during the holidays is especially difficult with all the extra responsibility and tasks that we must attend

We all love to see the sparkle in a child’s eyes as they look at the bright lights and decorations in the city square, on a neighbor’s home, or even the Christmas tree in our own homes. The lights and decorations in our home, workplace, and community bring a special touch to the holiday season. Most everywhere we turn there are lights twinkling? If you follow the cord for each string of lights, you will find that it connects to a power source.
Power is also needed in every data center. Chatsworth’s Power Management Products are designed to fully integrate into a CPI Rack System or Cabinet and Enclosure System ...

CPI’s Seismic Frame® Two-Post Rack is designed specifically to support network equipment in areas with seismic activity. The rack is rated for an industry leading 1000 lb per the NEBS GR-63-CORE Zone 4 requirements. An earthquake can easily damage or destroy non-seismic racks and equipment that are not carefully braced. When earthquakes occur, equipment racks move back-and-forth with the building causing violent vibration through racks and equipment. The welded, steel Seismic Frame Two-Post Rack resists the swaying motion caused by earthquakes to reduce the amount of vibration transferred through the rack to equipment and is less likely to be damaged during a seismic event, which means faster network recovery.

The M-Series MegaFrame is a classic cabinet. The styling is clean and timeless. This cabinet line is now eligible for its own ten year company pin. It continues to be popular and its longevity is due, in part, to a clever design that has allowed it to adapt to the changing requirements in the field. When this cabinet was launched in 1997 it consisted of a dozen part numbers! It quickly evolved into a full line of cabinets each with specific features to match unique requirements. Examples of the versatility include the C-Series SlimFrame®, that’s one floor tile wide, or the multi-compartmented E-Series ISP Co-Location Cabinet, and even a Zone 4 rated Seismic Frame® Cabinet.

The biggest challenge in today’s data center is thermal management, which is no surprise considering the average heat load generated per equipment cabinet has doubled since 2000.
Sealing cable openings provides a cost-effective airflow and thermal management solution. As much as 50% of cold air in the access floor escapes through cable access holes. Bypass air is expensive because it is air that is air-conditioned, but is not cooling equipment.
