Subject: Achieving Data Center Chi

Hello

Greg,

Do you think its possible to apply the principles of Feng Shui to the data center? To clear out existing clutter and make way for the healthy, positive flow of Chi? To commune with nature and let the energy flow naturally? Let’s try it. Clear your mind. Relax. Visualize how you want the data center to be…

Yes, I see it! There will be a time when the data center can handle existing network traffic but still be equipped to handle future capabilities like 10Gb. Yes, there will be a time when technicians can make changes within the data center and not get tripped up and turned around by “patch-cord spaghetti.” I can see it! You can achieve data center Zen!

Relax, my friends, there is hope and it doesn’t come from new-age mumbo-jumbo.

For years, SYSTIMAX Solutions has provided the tools and expertise needed to implement data center designs that able to accommodate change, but are installed in a way that makes it easy to identify the right connection and ensures that cords are routed safely out of the way. Plus, as one of the few providers with a complete UTP cabling solution for 10Gb, SYSTIMAX has put the “chi” in data center design without the aid of meditation.

If you would like further information about data center Feng Shui, or, if you just want to know what the heck “chi” is, please let me know. I will be happy to put you in touch with a design expert at SYSTIMAX Solutions. Now, please excuse me, I have some mediation to do.

Take care,

Sadie McCrary
