The local team of a global integrator was helping to design two 200-square-meter Tier 3 data centers for a leading European bank. A major concern for the end-user was the limited amount of space. Because of this, the end-user required high-density cabling due to rack space limitations. Along with the physical concerns of constructing a new building for a data center, the bank had concerns about data growth, system performance, network congestion and connectivity architecture, cost of power, cooling and space, fiber availability and power availability.
OEM Gains Global Supply Chain With Anixter
A global provider of instruments, subsystems and process control solutions for vacuum and gas-based processes has six manufacturing facilities around the world. With four plants in the U.S., one in China and one in Mexico, the manufacturer wanted a supply chain partner that could meet its global needs while still maintaining local support. As the company has expanded from its manufacturing plants in the Northeastern United States to global sites, quality control throughout its supply chain and manufacturing processes has become a bigger concern.
