Today most businesses are modernizing their IT infrastructure, and a big part of that process is updating their data centers.

In this webcast, you’ll learn about how to address some of the main challenges in the design of today’s modern data centers, with a focus on rack PDU placement.

Join Michael Otey, a DCK contributor, and Saman Berookhim, Legrand Product Manager of Cabinets and Containment, as they discuss some of today’s primary data center challenges, and you’ll see how Legrand cabinets can help you overcome some of these challenges.

This webinar will cover:

  • Planning for scalability – your data center has to be able to accommodate both today’s workloads as well as your future requirements

  • Challenges in designing modern data centers and planning for flexibility for mission-critical equipment and rack PDU placement

  • Constantly changing technologies, equipment, and requirements, and the ability to adapt to incorporate these changes without needing to redesign your infrastructure often

  • Why power and resiliency requirements must also be met to ensure business continuity for your mission-critical applications
