Panduit expands data center offering

July 25, 2007 -- Panduit has introduced its Net-Access Server Cabinet System.

July 25, 2007 -- Panduit has introduced its Net-Access Server Cabinet System, as a complement to the company's existing Net-Access Switch Cabinet.

Both cabinets are designed to manage, protect, and showcase cabling and equipment by providing open-rack accessibility with the aesthetics and security of a cabinet, says Panduit.

According to the company, the system's cable management design organizes power and data cables through vertically mounted patch panels and power outlet units, thereby reducing patch cord slack, improving airflow, and enhancing network reliability.

The system's scalable thermal management design provides a migration path from initial power and thermal requirements to future higher heat densities. For added thermal management, a rear cooling door option leverages IBM Cooling Technology to eliminate hot spots and enable increased server density. As a result, data centers realize reduced real estate and operational costs with fewer required CRAC cooling units, contends the company.
