Our history can shape your future

Data Center Systems (DCS) was created in 2002 to improve upon IBM’s concept of structured connectivity or Fiber Transport System (FTS). Since that time, DCS has been responsible for providing reliable, scalable, high-performance connectivity to some of the largest data centers in the world, equipping them to serve their customers effectively and without interruption.

Through our affiliation in the Ethernet Alliance and the Fibre Channel Industry Association (FCIA), DCS keeps you updated on the future speeds of Ethernet and Fibre Channel networking technologies — and its impact on your current and future connectivity infrastructure.
