Pascal Stutz | CEO, Legrand UK & Ireland
The COVID-19 lockdown forced organizations to rethink the way in which they conduct business and education, as they embraced remote work tools. This near-instantaneous shift in the working environment created new data center challenges for IT and data center managers as many were prevented from doing hands-on troubleshooting.
Because of their limited access to the physical IT infrastructure, network managers—more than ever—turned to remote network management and monitoring tools to
help with rebooting servers and other devices, switching off unused outlets so that new devices could not be installed
without their knowledge as well as gathering general data.
Alain Janssens | Data Center Manager at Infrabel
Every day, thousands of trains travel on the Belgian railroad network. The railroad infrastructure and safety systems are managed by Infrabel. In order to steer train traffic efficiently and reliably in the right direction, a flawlessly functioning data infrastructure is crucial.
Legrand and distributor Kannegieter joined forces to supply racks for Infrabel’s various data centers. The goal? To offer a total package of future-proof, robust and sustainable data center racks and related services, while respecting the agreed deadlines and taking into account the specific needs and wishes of the railroad manager.
