Fundamentals of Cabling Strategies for Data Centers
• Discuss the evolution of cabling • Classify different types of common data center cables • Describe cabling installation practices • Identify the strategies for selecting cabling topologies • Utilize cable management techniques • Recognize the challenges associated with cabling in the data center
From a cost perspective, building and operating a data center represents a significant piece of any Information Technology (IT) budget. The key to the success of any data center is the proper design and implementation of core critical infrastructure components. Cabling infrastructure, in particular, is an important area to consider when designing and managing any data center. The cabling infrastructure encompasses all data cables that are part of the data center, as well as all of the power cables necessary to ensure power to all of the loads. It is important to note that cable trays and cable management devices are critical to the support of IT infrastructure as they help to reduce the likelihood of downtime due to human error and overheating. This course will address the basics of cabling infrastructure and will discuss cabling installation practices, cable management strategies and cable maintenance practices. We will take an in-depth look at both data cabling and power cabling.
