Tomorrow will be the second DataCenter Dynamics (DCD) conference to be held in Atlanta, Georgia. The title for this year’s event is “Designing for Demand,” and addresses changes in the data center marketplace in terms of the impact that “the cloud” is having on the vision of the mission critical facility.
On the agenda are presentations and panel discussions including the following topics:
- Designing for Demand – Exploring new ways to assess the needs of mission critical facilities in order to implement new scalable technologies and tactics in capacity planning.
- Outsourcing Services – Assessing offerings and finding the perfect synergy between in-house IT and outsourcing services to provide a comprehensive IT strategy.
- Exchanges – Looking ahead and examining leading edge exchange solutions that provide the lowest latency in recent years.
- DCIM – New perspectives on how to manage your data center, from what’s inside the building to what’s inside the server.
- Technologies and Practices that Save Money – How to react to a company’s bottom line by implementing new cooling technologies, consolidating facilities and securing applications in the cloud.
I will be chairperson for Hall 2 at this event, and will be Tweeting topics that I find particularly interesting throughout the day. You can follow me on Twitter at @datacenterbob.
