As we continue this journey into the age of big data, cloud, mobility, social media and so forth, vast amounts of data are being generated daily. The volume of digital information continues to grow with no end in sight. More and more, personal and company information are becoming more and more digitized, both in storage and transfer. Securing this information is a growing challenge, and is becoming more complex by the day. Protecting digital assets means utilizing the best of available technologies and methodologies to achieve security goals. Not only must they ensure that the quality and performance of the solution is maintained, they must also assure undoubtedly that the information they seek to protect stays uncompromised.
Everyone knows fiber optics completely revolutionized the world of communication networks by delivering massive amounts of data almost instantly across great distances. Today, fiber optics are used in virtually every network ranging from massive data centers, to satellites in space, to transportation systems involving smart highways and traffic lights.
Using fiber optics has many benefits over other types of data transfer cables. They have a high carrying capacity while still delivering high speed, they degrade less, have no interference, require less power, are lightweight, safe, and they are flexible. But most importantly, fiber optic cables are visually stunning! We have comprised a gallery of pictures honoring original non-data transmitting, very pretty, uses for fiber optics.
A couple of weeks ago, we showed you pictures of some of the most artfully organized cables we could find. Today, we’re taking the opposite approach. We’ve all been guilty of the disorganized cable and wire heap, and frankly, it is a crime to be ashamed of. Most of us respectful citizens will clean up our act sooner or later, however, some others don’t. These serial tanglers have earned a notorious reputation because of their unrivaled skill at creating clutter. We’ve tracked down some of the worst cases of cable abuse and narrowed it down to the ten worst. Think you have cable clutter worse than these? Let us know in the comments!
In past blog posts, we’ve shown you some of the largest data centers and some of the most energy efficient data centers. Today, we’re going to look at a different aspect of data centers, the network cabling. As you’ll see in the first picture, Ethernet cables can be a nightmare if they aren’t carefully organized. However, when they are organized, they can transform into clever pieces of modern art. That’s exactly what we’re going to show you, a list of ten of the most artfully organized cabling systems we could find! At the end, be sure to let us know which are your favorites in the comments!
