Integrated Data Center Infrastructure Optimizes Power, Space and Cooling While Reducing Complexity

Approaches to implementing data center infrastructure

Integrated infrastructure (incorporating power, cooling and physical infrastructure) is a way to increase capacity in the data center while reducing risk and complexity, deferring investment and safeguarding network reliability. Companies are using tightly integrated, aisle-based physicalinfrastructure modules, or PODs, along with non-containerized integrated infrastructure solutions to optimize utilization of power, space and cooling capacity while dramatically reducing the time and complexity of specification, design, validation, procurement and installation.

Traditional options include:

(1) use in-house resources to design and integrate all elements of the infrastructure;

(2) rely on a single vendor; or,

(3) entrust multiple best-of-breed vendors to get it done.

Today, however, there is a better way: an integrated solution of best-of-breed systems from one company. The integrated best-of-breed approach ensures streamlined implementation through a single point
of contact while preserving flexibility and agility. Such a solution also avoids the complex integration effort traditionally required for best-of-breed, speeding deployment and time to value.
