Cages

Safeguard data center colocation cabinets with an additional enclosure.

Moving critical assets—hardware, software and/or data—to a service provider can lead to concerns about securing and auditing physical access that may have previously been within 100% control of the organization.

A SlimLine Cage for colocation from Expedient offers accessibility, control and value by creating a third level perimeter around critical information technology assets. A SlimLine Cage delivers several advantages as compared to traditional cages:

  • Accessibility – roll-up doors provide access from any angle to maintain consistent airflow supporting hot/cold aisle configurations
  • Control – electronic lock options record access by Expedient personnel for granular audit logging useful for a variety of industry and government compliance mandates
  • Value – the construction profile closely matches the cabinets it surrounds to minimize the square footage (up to 25% savings), providing considerable cost
