CABLExpress, a manufacturer of data centre and cabling infrastructure products, this week released the results of its Data Centre Executive Survey.

Results revealed that business continuance and disaster recovery are top priorities for the next generation of data centre design. The survey also showed that 79% of IT executives are looking to implement 40/100 gigabit Ethernet within the next two years.

The CABLExpress Data Centre Survey results were gathered at the annual Data Centre Symposium, hosted by CXtec and TERACAI.

Senior IT executives from North America came to CABLExpress headquarters in Syracuse, N.Y. to learn about and discuss data centre infrastructure best practices, new technologies and trends and the state of the industry as a whole.

Attendees represented companies in the commercial, education, financial services, and healthcare sectors. Representative organizations had an average company size of 10,000 employees.

They ranked business continuance, disaster recovery, backup and maximizing uptime as their top concern as they look to design their next-generation data centre infrastructure, more so than agility and capital and operational expenses, which were ranked number two and three overall, respectively.
