The Vatican Apostolic Library implemented the Panduit Integrated Data Center Solution to create a robust and highly available network infrastructure to support the conservation of its literary treasures.
The manuscripts in the Vatican Apostolic Library are extremely delicate and sensitive to light, humidity, and temperature. Therefore, handling the material presents significant risk for destruction or damage. To guarantee the preservation of its documents, the Vatican Apostolic Library has begun an extensive manuscript digitization project.
The purpose of the project was to provide the technology and functionality needed to support the future storage of the valued manuscripts. To accomplish this goal, the existing data center needed to be completely dismantled and equipped with a more efficient data center infrastructure.
