Converged Infrastructure and Hyperconvergence are Disrupting Layer One Cabling Designs

CABLExpress showcases white paper on cabling strategies for hyperconvergence at Gartner Data Center Conference


Gartner Data Center, Infrastructure & Operations Management Conference, Las Vegas, NV, December 5, 2016 – When considering the impact converged infrastructure and hyperconvergence are having on cabling, it’s crucial to understand how data center topologies are evolving. CABLExpress has released a white paper that outlines how structured cabling designs are meeting the demands of converged and hyperconverged networks.

The white paper, “Cabling Designs for Hyperconvergence,” discusses:

  • The impact of evolving data center topologies
  • Understanding converged infrastructure and Apache Hadoop clusters
  • The growing proliferation of hyperconvergence
  • In-cabinet hyperconvergence connectivity using:
    • Twinax Direct Attach Copper (DAC) cabling
    • Active Optical Cables (AOC)
    • Jumpers, harnesses and patch cords

“Over the past several years, the emergence of software-defined networking has pushed data center designs to evolve from three-layer topologies to leaf-spine topologies,” said Dave Fredricks, data center infrastructure architect at CABLExpress and author of the white paper. “Understanding structured cabling strategies that address the growing demands that come with these computing architectures is imperative for data center professionals.”
