Cable Guide Selection Is Critical to Data Center Future-Proofing

Here’s a statistic to ponder: in 2017, tech leader Dell noted that, 20-plus years into the internet age, 90% of the world’s data and digital footprint had been created in just the previous two years. The reason behind that stunning growth – which has only accelerated – is the enormous demand for remote computing.

New Wiring Devices Helping Data Centers Power Down Their Demand

If you could go back a decade or so, you’d find the growing data center market then under fire for its notoriously high energy demand.
