Panduit has launched its new FlexFusion™ cabinets which can be custom configured to meet the specific needs of any ITE environment. The requirements of data centers are constantly evolving, it is therefore essential to have rack solutions capable of offering maximum scalability. With the growth of edge data centers and colocation sites, these arrays must not only be flexible in their design, but also be configured for specific environmental and equipment needs that push the limits for maximum cooling and cooling efficiency.

"Interaction with our customers is essential to provide them with the high level of flexibility they demand for their data center cabinets.
"The FlexFusion cabinet is our answer to their needs. Through in-depth research, our customers have told us that they need a configurable cabinet, which can scale with the demands of the network, “says Matt Paciorek, Group Manager, Converged Infrastructure Solutions.
“Data center cabinets are increasing in density and storage capacity, which is why we have added additional thermal enhancements and built-in intelligence. We are very excited that the FlexFusion cabinet specifically meets the expectations of the customer."
