"Everything" to be held in cloud systems in next 10 years, says Panduit exec

Friday, February 25, 2011

Everything from building operating systems, to unified communications, to electricity management will be held in either public or private clouds, as trust is built up in cloud computing within the next 10 years, managing director for US structured cabling provider Panduit in Latin America, Neil Corradine, was quoted as saying by news outlet CIO.

According to Corradine, cloud computing services will be a utility that can bought from suppliers in the same way power is provided by an electric company.

When switching to a cloud computing system, Corradine said clients can benefit from adopting Panduit's solutions by not only lowering operating costs, but also reducing energy consumption as well.

Also, according to Corradine, the monitoring of energy supplied to active equipment is an important offer from the firm, as incorrect power flows can cause a server to fall or burn, costing a company millions of dollars.

Cooling efficiency - displacing the heat produced by servers and streamlining energy consumption - is another key card in Panduit's portfolio of solutions, he added.

The executive underlined Panduit's presence in all of Latin America's large data centers, as well as its cooperation with partners like Cisco to complement its solutions.
