Molex is supporting the Open19 Foundation initiative, which intends to build a new open standard for data centre servers. Open19 defines a common form factor for servers, top-of-rack switches and power shelves with an internal base cage that can be implemented into a standard 19” rack. The company's Impel Customized Data Cable solution is the backbone of the initiative standard rack solution, producing lower costs and reliable signal integrity with a robust interface.
“As an Open19 Foundation member, Molex has helped support development of the open standard cable solution, which will meet the industry’s need for connectivity, scalability and quick deployment,” says Liz Hardin, global product manager, Molex.
“The combination of Impel technology by Molex and the Open19 Foundation delivers a flexible, scalable and secure platform that will meet the needs of data centres today while anticipating the growing needs of data centres in the future,” adds Hardin.
