Comcast and Other Industry Experts to Speak on High-Performing and Efficient Data Centers at New Jersey ‘DCIM Summit’
SOMERSET, N.J., May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Leading data center experts are hosting an event for data center and facilities professionals interested in learning how to optimize data center operations, while reducing costs. The free half-day event on May 17 will focus on topics ranging from next-generation data center designs to smart racks to data center infrastructure management (DCIM).
Organization growth, data center consolidation and the need to provide more IT-based services place increasing demands on IT staffs and data center resources — including electrical power, cooling, capacity and space for IT equipment. To relieve these pressures, data centers must become more efficient — extremely efficient. The “DCIM Summit” will present a series of real-world, end-user case studies on making data centers efficient, and the latest trends in DCIM and power and energy management.
DCIM Summit Speakers include:
Comcast — Richard Werner, Executive Director Data Center Management, on “Future-Proofing Your Data Center” and intelligent rack PDUs and DCIM.
Progilisys Solutions — Ken Crabtree, President of Progilisys, on “Data Center Migration” and DCIM.
This event will also include a tour of the IO New Jersey data center, which is the largest modular data center and the largest data center in the NYC metropolitan area. The new 830,000-square-foot data center, which previously served as a newspaper printing plant for the New York Times, has been awarded Tier III Design Certification from the Uptime Institute.
When: Thursday, May 17, 12 pm to 5 pm.
Where: IO Data Center, Edison, NJ — lunch will be served.
A cocktail reception will be held at the Sheraton Edison Hotel following the seminar.
