The Siemon Company has signed a product agreement with IBM Corp. relating to the latter’s enhanced Enterprise Modular Data Center (EMDC) program.  

 

EMDC is a large data centre design concept, which uses pre-engineered design strategies allowing customers to meet unpredictable business and IT demands.  

 

By building to a design that allows customers to increase density and footprint as required, clients can scale their data centres when needed without disruption to existing operations.

 

Siemon product offerings  will include Z-MAX category 6A and TERA category 7A twisted pair copper cabling systems, 10, 40 and 100-Gigabit-Ready fiber optic cabling systems, MapIT G2 Intelligent Infrastructure Management System and VersaPOD data centre cabinets.  

 

“More than 60% of CIOs around the world are expecting significant change brought by soaring data volumes, increasingly complex analyses and ever larger populations of users,” said Steven Sams, vice president of Global Site and Facilities Services at IBM.

 

“The struggle to respond to changing IT requirements to fit business demands is outdating a classic approach to building large, monolithic data centres which have to last 20 or more years.”
