Big data has been a buzzword for years, but we are currently seeing data grow exponentially to provide for eCommerce, streaming and on-demand service needs. Instead of terabytes and petabytes, we are in the realm of exabytes and even zettabytes. Data
center and cloud storage facilities were estimated to host 286 exabytes, or 1 million terabytes, in 2016, and that number is only going up.
A wide berth for expansion means a requirement for equipment that can move quickly to make more room for new servers. One such way to ensure that data center evolution can happen without growing pains is the use of Fibrelite Lightweight Composite Access Covers.
These internal design elements keep downtime to a minimum by creating modular containment that can be adapted over time to house growing arrays of servers, cables and other components.
Efficiency and flexibility are two core tenets of a successful data or cloud storage center, and that is why operations across North America, Europe and Asia are adopting Fibrelite access
covers at a fast pace. The high level of organizations that depend on these centers creates high stakes. People will notice if one of their favorite websites or applications blacks out, and even worse, businesses can suffer a hurt reputation or security
risks from a break in service. Keeping a secure enclosure while making it possible to introduce additional equipment is the balance that has to be struck.
Because they are built for easy removal and replacement, access covers are one place that companies can say they are future-proofing with a degree of confidence. Fibrelite covers also carry the distinction of load ratings up to 90 tons, corrosion-proof
construction and an anti-skid walking surface. For the most advanced centers, bespoke, or customizable, covers are an ideal choice, and Fibrelite possesses that capability as well.
In terms of the customization that Fibrelite can provide, access covers can be manufactured to exact specifications for size, color, load rating and even fittings for previously installed concrete or metal covers.
Defining What’s Next in Data Protection
Data security goes beyond firewalls and encryption. The physical structures that house some of our most vital information need to be agile and ready to expand or reorganize at a moment’s notice. Lapses are the enemy, and Fibrelite Lightweight Composite
Access Covers are a great ally in creating a lapse-free infrastructure. This dedication to dynamic performance is how Fibrelite continues “Defining What’s Next.”
