Why Small Innovations in Cable Management Mean Big Wins
The latest Invaluable Inventions stops your cables getting tangled and reduces the risk of snagging on obstructions. The inspiration behind our cable management device for use in server farms, or other multi-cable IT environments, was borne from our own experience.
One of my worst jobs was having to teardown offices and server farms. Pulling wires, unplugging cables, climbing up in the ceiling, crawling under desks, reaching behind servers, walking back-and-forth from the server room to cube-to-cube - every time a cable got tangled, I wanted to throw the whole mess out the window. There had to be a better way, a better design to make it easier to manage cables around the office, or at the server farm.
Best cable-management solution
Step forward, the Tangle Free Cable Management Device patented by Invaluable Innovations. A simple solution to a universal IT challenge:
- Able to be integrated into newly-manufactured cables.
- Capable of being retro-fitted.
- Unique design for trouble-free installation and removal.
- Tamper and child-proof.

Server farms – cable management can make or break
The growth of cloud computing means there are vast server farms around the world supporting businesses of all sizes. Google is estimated to have anywhere from 900,000 to 2.5 million servers; Amazon estimates range from 1.5 million to 2 million. When you’re talking about millions and millions of servers, and considering how to improve operations, you might start by looking at the tasks that are hard to automate, and find yourself looking for innovations in the most prosaic places.
Frustration-free cable management
Imagine having to teardown a server stack in one of those huge server farm environments. Who pulls the cables out of the machines? Who keeps the cords from becoming tangled? Who bears the responsibility of making sure a mission-critical system isn’t accidentally unplugged? Today’s server farms are cutting-edge, sophisticated operations, but every IT person on the planet knows that stuff happens. The human frustration and the losses to a business that follows an internet or power outage are perils to avoid at all costs.
