Navigating the data centre maze

The International Data Corporation (IDC) recently reported that 73 per cent of companies now foresee the need for major modernisation of data centres, to keep pace with the speed of digital advances.  They include Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things, big data and edge computing.

Rittal says its new IT microsite tackles this challenge head-on with a comprehensive review of products, services and integrated solutions that can be considered and tailored to meet a company’s individual needs.

The speed of the digitisation of manufacturing, trade and other sectors means businesses require a rapid and adequate provision of IT solutions, through data centres which can be procured simply and economically and operated efficiently and safely. Modernising data centres to meet these complexities is a challenge in itself. Visitors to the new site will get practical advice on topics such as Big Data, cloud computing and IT security, as well as case studies of real-life applications.  There is a large library of white papers, brochures and references and a live-chat facility to raise questions directly with experts.
 
The launch of the microsite is planned for Data Centre World (DCW) 2018 where the company will be showcasing its expertise as an enabler of innovative IT solutions, ranging from individual IT racks right through to turnkey data centres within containers which offer users maximum modularity, scalability and efficiency. All are fully supported by comprehensive consulting and service programmes that can operate for the duration of a data centre’s lifecycle.
 
“As the IDC research highlighted, around 75 per cent of decision-making is now based on information gathered online," explained Clive Partridge, Rittal’s Technical Manager for IT Infrastructure. “With our new IT website and our expertise, we are providing reliable support for customers in the decision-making process”.

Visitors can talk to members of the Rittal team about the solutions showcased in the new IT microsite, as well as view products from Rittal – The System, at Data Centre World (Excel, London, 21-22 March 2018) on Stand D510.
