New VersaPOD video demonstrates greater thermal efficiency in the data centre

Network infrastructure experts Siemon have developed a short new video demonstrating how the company's VersaPOD data centre cabinet solution addresses critical requirements in today's data centres: achieving greater density, improving thermal efficiency and providing greater equipment accessibility.

"With data centre real estate at a premium and energy consumption on the rise, pressure on IT infrastructure and cabling has increased" explains Graeme Stoker, Marketing Manager at Siemon EMEA. "This video illustrates how the VersaPOD cabinet can deliver real improvements in energy efficiency, floor space utilisation and improved data centre workability."

Tony Robinson Global Accounts Manager at Siemon demonstrates how the VersaPOD's exclusive Zero U patching capability leverages the vertical space between bayed cabinets for patching and cable management. This Zero-U vertical patching configuration can support up to 1152 ports of copper or 5184 fibres between every set of VersaPODs, freeing up critical horizontal rack space for active equipment, achieving optimum density in the minimum floor space.

Tony goes on to show how network equipment in the cabinet can easily be accessed via unique dual hinged, wardrobe and quad hinged style doors which offer maximum thermal efficiency through 71 per cent perforation.

The video also includes a typical application for the VersaPOD, including network server and storage topologies and their related patching and cable routing options.

The video can be accessed via the VersaPOD product page on the Siemon website at
