Agenda Highlights

The DataCenter Insights agenda and community of industry experts and advisors provide the depth of knowledge and expertise that meets the requirements of data center professionals across disciplines. The agenda addresses today's issues, trends, technologies and solutions.


Hot topics to be covered include:

Co-Location

Why or why not, critical decision-making factors, understanding your options, evaluating service providers, costs, etc.

Cloud computing issues and strategies

Best practices and case studies on enterprise processes, skills and structure needed to be successful in the future.

Virtualization

Developing strategies, understanding vendors and products, and best practices for successful deployment and effectiveness.

Cost optimization

Looking at design, scale, and sourcing to meet your organizations current and future data center needs in an efficient and cost effective manner.

Business Continuity Management (BC)

Every business should have a BC plan in place that includes crisis management, business procedures/processes and work area management.

Disaster Recovery (DR)

How do you deal with and prevent IT downtime. Even if your business continuity plan is executed perfectly, you remain at a standstill if IT systems go down and stay down.

Managing data storage and innovation

Data growth for a company is good but needs to be managed. Organizations need to deal with backup, recovery, and understand the role cloud will play.

Servers and operating systems

Questioning traditional approaches and the installed base, looking at new and specialized products and offerings, and how new developments are forcing change.

IT operational excellence

IT operations management is not just about user support, infrastructure, and technology. Value can be had when the group interacts with senior management and understands business issues and applies technology and processes to help the company achieve goals.
