Data centre is a room or a special building built for this purpose, where top conditions for housing and operation of computer and communication equipment are provided. All institutions to which it is essential to maintain continuity in their business place their primary or backup computer equipment in data centers.
Data centers should meet high standards of safety and reliability of IT infrastructure and eliminate any possibility of failure. This is achieved by redundancy of optical fiber cables and power cables and redundant backup power supply.
On 12 May 2016, Corning also won “Data Centre Cabling Product of the Year” for its EDGE8 solution at the Data Centre Solutions (DCS) Awards 2016 in London.
On 20 April 2016, Corning triumphed at the German Data Centre Awards 2016 (Der Deutsche Rechenzentrumspreis) with the “IT and Network Infrastructure Award” for its EDGE8 solution, the industry’s first fibre cabling system with a Base-8 design.
