The Siemon Company has announced that its products can be implemented within IBM’s Portable Modular Data Centre (PMDC), which are on display this week at the Gartner Data Centre Conference forum at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
Siemon products include Cat 6A and 7A twisted pair copper cabling systems, MapIT G2 Infrastructure Management System as well as 10, 40 and 100-Gigabit-Ready, Plug and Play fiber optic cabling offerings.
IBM’s PMDCs are delivered as pre designed modular units that can include power, cooling, fire detection and suppression, and access control. Designed to provide an open IT infrastructure, the PMDC containers offer equipment-ready racks and cabling systems, supporting a wide array of equipment vendors, types, configurations and mounting styles.
“In a global economy, many organizations are finding they require remote or mobile data centres for installation in a wide variety of locations around the world,” said Steve Sams, IBM vice president, Global Site and Facilities Services.
As part of a supplier agreement between IBM and Siemon, PMDCs can be delivered with Siemon cabling already installed and ready to connect.
Based on IBM client requirements, these pre-installed cabling infrastructures may include any of Siemon’s cabling systems.
