This week the companies in Hexatronic Group are participating in Climate Action Week. Our goal is to contribute to a more sustainable society by taking a holistic approach to sustainable development. As a global player in fiber expansion, we play an important role in the impact of current and future connectivity infrastructures. We want our actions now to contribute to a more sustainable society in the future.
Cybersecurity threats are becoming more dangerous with global losses from cybercrime increasing 50 percent since 2018 with losses now exceeding $1 trillion.
Google has data centers all over the world making sure the internet is humming day and night.
While Google does not disclose the total number of servers it is running, Gartner estimated in 2016 that the tech behemoth had 2.5 million servers in operation.
Google needs all that processing power because StatCounter says the company has 91.86 percent of the search market as of July 2021.
Transaction creates leadership of expertise in fiber design, assembly and manufacturing of critical components to meet the needs of a broader range connectivity demand in global data center markets.
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic fundamentally changed the way much of America conducted business, having enough connectivity speed was crucial in today’s increasingly tech-driven world.
As the pandemic now stretches past 18 months and Zoom meetings have become commonplace along with a remote workforce often sharing large files and cloud-based applications, a lack of bandwidth can be a deal breaker for your business.
Data Center demand has surged in the past year as the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of digital technologies by several years.
“In just a few months’ time, the COVID-19 crisis brought about years of change in the way companies in all sectors and regions do business,” said a McKinsey & Company report. “According to a new McKinsey Global Survey of executives, their companies have accelerated the digitization of their customer and supply-chain interactions and of their internal operations by three to four years. And the share of digital or digitally enabled products in their portfolios has accelerated by a shocking seven years.”
It’s been 30 years since fiber optic cables ushered in a new networking era that fueled the rise of the internet and our modern digital world.
Fiber optic cables, with their ability to transmit more data at a higher speed, became the backbone of the internet, and during the COVID-19 pandemic became a lifeline with work, school and social life shifting online. Fiber optic connections were no longer a luxury but a necessity.
It is hard to imagine navigating the COVID-19 pandemic without the internet which allowed the world to work, learn, play, and connect while staying physically remote.
A decade ago, if your boss told you that your “head was in the clouds” it probably meant you were goofing off on company time, but today we all have our heads in the clouds as businesses have migrated much of their workloads to “the cloud”.
When it comes to data center terminology you may know DC from your CR, but you most likely are more invested in your ROI rather than understanding cold aisles vs. hot aisles. DCs or data centers have their own terminology even from CRs or computer rooms.
Your return on investment or ROI on a data center may very well be a function of data center design including factors such as cold aisles – aisles where racks face forward into the aisle and airflow is directed so that it can enter the front of the racks in a an efficient manner – and hot aisles -- aisles between two rows of racks where the heat from the back of the equipment discharges.
