Molex has announced a full line of next-generation data centre infrastructure solutions to address expanding hyperscale requirements, including higher bandwidth and increasing data rates.

Molex says that data storage requirements are growing by more than 40% each year, and digital information is expected to grow to 40 zettabytes by 2020. There are a number of contributors to this growth, including transitions to cloud storage, open systems, edge computing, machine learning (ML), deep learning (DL) and artificial intelligence (AI). As a result, companies are required to expand their data centre capabilities to support increasing requirements for capacity, availability and overall throughput.

Molex next-generation data centre solutions address these needs by including connectivity solutions that offer high signal integrity, lower latency and lower insertion loss for maximum efficiency, speed and density. Solutions leverage copper and optics, both inside and outside the rack. Customers can choose from of in-stock products or take advantage of Molex global design and manufacturing capabilities.

“Effective design, implementation and management of data centre infrastructure is optimised when working with suppliers who have the capabilities, expertise and scalability that today’s data centres demand,” said Ryan Wade, director of data centre sales, Molex. “Molex understands the orchestration required to coordinate communication between components and help customers with everything from designing integrated I/O cabling solutions for data centres to providing expertise to best structure their data centres to address their changing needs and help mitigate overall risk.”
