Uptime Institute is organizing its sixth annual Symposium to serve as a meeting ground for thought leaders, innovators and practitioners in the data center industry.
This year’s event will be attended by industry professionals from more than 40 nations and will take place on May 9 to 12, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif.
These professionals will take this opportunity to discuss the latest trends, including how to anticipate and respond to disruptive changes such as cloud computing, volatile demand, and rapidly evolving modular architectures.
Those attending the Symposium will gain strategic and practical insights from the content-rich agenda. Also, they will have the opportunity to attend one-on-one sessions with experts from the Institute and analysts from the Institute’s parent company, The 451 Group (News - Alert), and its subsidiary, Tier1 Research.
Day Three of the Symposium will be marked by discussions on energy and carbon issues and its theme will be “The Disrupted Enterprise: Efficiency, Energy and Carbon.”
This day will see the professionals addressing topics such as the economic ramifications of analyzing the total cost of enterprise computing per kW, and energy-aware capacity planning and site selection.
According to Uptime Institute, registration for the Symposium is now open, and an early-bird rate is available until March 31. Those registering for the event will receive a Symposium delegate pass to attend three full days of rich programming, as well as access to an exhibition hall featuring products and services of leading vendors.
“At this year’s Symposium, the best minds in the industry will meet to share strategies, knowledge and best practices for navigating the road ahead,” said Andy Lawrence, program director of the Uptime Institute Symposium and research director of Eco-efficient IT, The 451 Group. “Attendees can expect to receive both strategic and practical advice on top-of-mind issues, such as the alignment of IT and facilities infrastructure design and planning, the use of distributed UPS, chiller-free datacenters, preconfigured container ‘pods’ and more. We look forward to another full agenda and a great outcome for this year’s Symposium.”
