Data Center Design Concepts For Today …And Beyond
  • What factors need to be considered in designing or retrofitting a data center today? 
  • What has changed in the last decade that determines an optimal design or retrofit?
  • What has been learned to make data centers more flexible for future needs? 
  • Are metrics from the past still relevant today, and what will be important in the future?
This and more will be explored in a lively panel discussion with perspectives ranging from architectural and facility engineering design, end user operations, structured cabling and networking, physical maintenance, and capacity planning.
There will also be plenty of time — over a buffet dinner and bar — to pose questions and add your thoughts for group discussion based on your own insights, and network with your peers.
