Business continuity and disaster recovery are top priorities for next-generation data center design

CABLExpress, a manufacturer of data center and cabling infrastructure solutions, has released the results of its Data Center Executive Survey.

Top line results of the survey revealed that business continuity and disaster recovery are top priorities for the next generation of data center design. The Survey also showed that 79 percent of IT executives are looking to implement 40/100 gigabit Ethernet within the next two years.

The CABLExpress Data Center Survey results were gathered at the annual Data Center Symposium, hosted by CXtec and TERACAI. Senior IT executives from North America came to CABLExpress headquarters in Syracuse, NY to learn about and discuss data center infrastructure best practices, new technologies and trends and the state of the industry as a whole.

100 percent of IT executives surveyed said they would be adopting technologies such as converged data center fabric and higher speeds like 40/100 Gigabit Ethernet – and 79 percent of respondents said that they would begin implementation within the next two years.

Attendees ranked business continuity, disaster recovery, backup and maximizing uptime as their top concern as they look to design their next-gen data center infrastructure – more so than agility and capital and operational expenses, which were ranked number two and three overall, respectively.
