An interesting article from Northrop Grumman highlights the actions taken by large data center owners, including Amazon, Facebook and Google, in creating green data centers.
Our Horizontal Zero U Cable Management Shelf allows for fewer cabinets to house the same number of servers. Additionally, our 28AWG copper cables are smaller in diameter so there is more space between the individual cables and better airflow.
The 2.8″ and 3.8″ deep Horizontal Zero U Cable Management Shelf is designed for use inside server cabinets, as it allows the doors to close easily.
The 6″ deep Horizontal Zero U Cable Manager is used more on racks with no doors or sides. Some of our customers use this as a shelf mounted between the front and back rails, to provide a support for cables going from the front to the back of the cabinet or rack.

Green Data Centers Power a More Sustainable Planet
By Brooks McKinney for Northrop Grumman
Every time we use our cell phone or personal computer to query the internet, stream a movie or retrieve photos from the cloud, we’re asking a worldwide network of high-speed computers to locate and deliver data instantly to our device.
Unfortunately, the digital infrastructure that performs these tasks — thousands of computers housed in data centers (aka server “farms”) — also consumes enormous amounts of electricity, much of it from non-renewable sources. To shrink this carbon footprint and create a more sustainable future, large data center owners including Amazon, Facebook and Google are creating green data centers.
