American Power Conversion Corp. (APC) will demonstrate its InfraStruXure architecture at FutureX 2004, taking place from May 18 to 21 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
An integrated architecture for the Network Critical Physical Infrastructure (NCPI), InfraStruXure incorporates the rack, cooling, power, management and services components that make the NCPI an open and adaptable solution, APC says.
"FutureX 2004 will enable us to demonstrate the benefits of the InfraStruXure architecture, a solution that allows ICT managers to choose from a number of standardized components to create a customized solution," says Carl Kleynhans, country GM of APC Africa. "This approach provides the reliability, affordability and predictability of standardized solutions, yet is completely customized to meet specific needs."
The solution also allows additional capacity to be purchased and installed when needed, enabling a company to purchase only what is needed at present while still permitting future growth. "In addition, businesses are able to proactively manage today's constantly changing environments, while adapting their infrastructure as the need arises without having to abandon previous investments," Kleynhans says. "The greatest advantage of the InfraStruXure product is that any company can take advantage of these benefits, regardless of industry, and no matter how complex the data center."
Thys Hattingh, district manager: SA at APC, will also give a presentation on the InfraStruXure solution on Wednesday 19 May in Committee Room One. APC can be found on stand A17, Hall 3, the Ballroom at FutureX.
