Increase your data centre uptime

Whether a Service Level Agreement can be upheld may depend on how efficient data centre troubleshooting is. Carefully checking each cable takes too much time, and carelessly unplugging the wrong cable can take webshops, apps or transactional sites offline.

Brady Corporation offers reliable labels that are designed to reliably identify any data centre cable, server, component and rack to take the guesswork out of troubleshooting.

Efficient troubleshooting

Trying to determine which cable to unplug and replace or reconnect can be a daunting task in data centres. It is like finding a specific needle in a stack of needles: a challenge that is time devouring and nerve racking, especially when high level applications are down and agreed service levels are threatened.  Imagine someone would unplug the wrong cable, and more servers go down. To avoid all this, Brady offers reliable identification solutions that enable data centre technicians to quickly retrieve the cable they need.

Label it once

Brady’s reliable labels with adhesives for curved and flat surfaces stay attached to every cable and component. As a result, identification will be in place when fast troubleshooting is necessary to avoid downtime. Label sizes and shapes are available to easily identify any rack, server, component, STP, UTP and COAX cables, and Brady also offers a flag shaped label designed for minimum fibre optic cable contact with maximum available space for identification data.

Easy to design and print

The Brady Workstation app platform offers an array of label design capabilities that cover almost every data centre identification need. Cable, component and rack labels, and even facility signs and identification can be designed in a few steps. Designs can easily be sent to a Brady label printer for on-site printing so the new label can be applied immediately.
