Your network is growing and so is your data center footprint. The pace of deployment for storage continues to increase, while the refresh cycle for compute continues to shorten. How will you support rapid deployment so that racks (cabinets), power and network are in place when compute and storage is required?
Standardize on a rack (cabinet) solution to define the critical elements to your organization and simplify purchasing and deployment process. Consider the size, rack-mount system, load bearing capacity, panel work, thermal management, cable management, power distribution and monitoring, environmental monitoring, and access control. Ask about features that speed installation and removal of equipment. Request that your manufacturer pre-assemble or kit the solution to speed deployment and ask about staging for phased installations.
Why Choose CPI?
CPI provides a total solution. We recognize that each project has specific requirements. We have a robust standard product offering that demonstrates a wide range of design and manufacturing capabilities including designs for heavy duty racks that can be moved when fully populated and seismic racks that are enhanced to help resist damage from earthquakes. Our approach is to discover your requirements, then make recommendations based on your needs.
To support rapid deployment, certain models of GF-Series GlobalFrame® Gen 2 Cabinet include load-bearing casters, are tested for dynamic loads and will be shipped in reusable packaging on shock pallets. CPI will pre-install accessories per your direction, so racks include cable and thermal management and intelligent power distribution units (PDU). We assign a single, project-specific part number for easy ordering. We will customize racks if there are additional project-specific requirements. Our channel partners will assist with staging request and complex logistics. We’ve also developed a range of tool-less accessories to speed installation of equipment including Clik-Nut® Hardware and Snap-In Filler Panels.
