2017 Trade Show Recap

Trade show season is upon us, and the DAMAC team had the pleasure of attending several in the last few months, most notably – New York City’s 2017 Data Center Dynamics (DCD) Enterprise Conference in March and Data Center World’s AFCOM show in Los Angeles this April. Below are some highlights from both shows we exhibited at this spring.

DCD Enterprise Conference

DAMAC attended along with many companies that still own and operate on premise data centers or are working on data center modernization. We displayed one of our customizable server racks for technical professionals who were in attendance including AT&T, Amazon, LinkedIn and Microsoft, to name just a few.

Server racks are the backbone of the data center infrastructure, and are used to house servers and other equipment with minimal cabling. DAMAC offers five different server rack options:

  1. Axis: Features a redesigned chassis and unique PDU/cabling cavity in the cabinet rear
  2. Co-Location: Is available in a two or three secure compartment configuration
  3. FasTrak: Designed to ship fully populated, transporting up to 3,500 pounds
  4. Open Compute (OCP): Combines three traditional server racks into a triple wide system
  5. Seismic Rack: Designed to ensure rack-mounted equipment within remains unharmed and operational during a seismic event

AFCOM 2017

DAMAC also attended AFCOM’s 2017 Tradeshow and displayed our newest approach to data center infrastructure design in the DAMAC Structure. We gained insights and networked with other organizations that operate data centers and IT infrastructure.

The DAMAC structure is made up of four components that comprise all the elements of a modern aisle-containment design: cabinet anchoring base unit, hot or cold aisle containment system, cable routing system and overhead powerhead distribution busway. The structure is highly flexible and can be designed to accommodate any size server cabinet or network rack. The DAMAC Structure reduces time and cost, while also creating an environment that is consistent, but that adapts to change.
