Ever increasing port density in racks has been a key driver towards the use of smaller and smaller fiber, copper and power cords within the data center in recent years. But how small can you go? When and where are using “thinner” cables healthy?We’ll explore the important factors that will weigh into choosing the right size cable –not too thick and not too skinny. We’ll dive into the benefits of 28awg vs. 30-34awg “slim” copper cables, where/when to use thicker protection for your fiber and picking the best power cord for your equipment & PDU –without contributing to the “cable jungle” in your data center or compromising resiliency.
