1 Living Infrastructure Solution Guide

2 Transform your data center into a living infrastructure One-size-fits-all practices and increased pressure affect data center performance In today s data center environment, applications require the utmost reliability, flexibility and security. IT administrators, facility and data center managers are juggling competing priorities, trying to manage operational costs, conserve energy, minimize downtime and optimize space. As data centers experience rapid growth and evolve through newer technologies, enterprises must also contend with rising business expenses that exert additional pressure on data center operators to achieve optimal performance. To further complicate matters, data center designers are limited by one-size-fits-all practices that often do not align with specific, real-world customer needs resulting in sub-optimum data center designs that place additional stress on IT operations and budgets. Living Infrastructure designed to evolve alongside you To maximize efficiency, enterprises must address current requirements, available resources and future expansion. They need a partner capable of designing and deploying their infrastructure, then supporting its evolution. Once that support is established and consistent, data centers begin to optimize the usage, storage and transmission of business-critical information. Since enterprises need to build and sustain an infrastructure that is responsive, agile and efficient, CommScope has devised a strategic approach called Living Infrastructure. This perspective informs and influences all key phases of the data center lifecycle, including: Phase DESIGN DESIGNDEPLOY Phase DESIGNDEPLOYEVOLVE DEPLOYEVOLVE Phase EVOLVE Data center design should be precise. With more than 30 years of experience, CommScope helps you establish a physical infrastructure capable of addressing current and future operational requirements. By taking a Living Infrastructure approach, the flexible elements you install today will be ready to adapt and grow three, five or 10 years from now. You benefit from full access to our structured cabling expertise and a broad suite of resources that enable you to design with greater ease, expand your flexibility, and build beyond current standards. Data center deployment should be easy. When you deploy through a Living Infrastructure approach, the basic building blocks are modular, with each step designed to simplify and accelerate the installation or upgrade process. In certain scenarios, you can add capacity within minutes. As a result, you avoid start-up delays and excessive downtime while maximizing floor/rack space. From core to aggregation and equipment, performance rises while install time and costs drop. Data center evolution should be costeffective. From the start, CommScope s modular Living Infrastructure approach is designed to help your data center smoothly adapt, grow and evolve as your long-term business objectives and technology requirements change because they will. Protect your initial investment by addressing next-generation technologies without any major overhauls. Rely on professional technical support. Enjoy a clear migration path to 40G and 100G Ethernet. Add intelligent oversight for complete network visibility. Design, deploy and evolve with confidence CommScope helps enterprises devise and preserve strategic investments that conserve time and energy, reduce labor, installation and maintenance expenses, and provide flexibility for future growth. Living Infrastructure improves your ability to adapt to faster speeds, newer applications and better hardware. Design precise, high-performance data centers. Deploy them with speed and ease. Adapt and expand with confidence as your needs evolve. 2
