Black Box Data Centre Practice: Complete Data Centre Transformation Strategy

Data Centre of the Future Showcase
Black Box will participate in the "Data Centre der Zukunft" or Data Centre of the Future: the 6th Generation Data Centre, a unique and innovative data centre that will be built on the show floor. This mini data centre will feature multiple components (racks, servers, switching, cabling, cooling, security, power, alarms, etc.) from various partners.

Global Partnership with HPE Aruba
For the first time live, the Black Box Data Centre Practice will showcase the high-performance, access layer/leaf data centre Aruba CX 10000 Series switch with Pensando. The Aruba CX 10000 represents a new category of data centre switches that combine best-of-breed data centre Aruba L2/3 switching with the industry's only fully programmable DPU (Pensando Elba) that delivers stateful software-defined services inline, at scale, with wire-rate performance and order-of-magnitude scale and performance improvements over traditional data centre L2/3 switches at a fraction of their TCO. Black Box will offer HPE Aruba switches to data centres along with its portfolio of data centre services.
