A study by Ponemon Institute found 95% of data centers self-reported a failure within the preceding 24 months. That's over 9 out of 10 data  centers!

Why bother with redundancy? Does it work? What causes data centers to go down?

Join 7x24 at our May event, when special guest Peter Panfil (VP, Global Power with Emerson Network Power) will discuss:

The Lowdown On Data Center Downtime
As data centers continue to evolve to support businesses and organizations that are becoming more social, mobile and cloud-based, data center managers need to minimize the risk and cost associated with unplanned downtime.  With many high profile and costly unplanned data center outages in the news today, CIOs, IT operators and Facility Managers are more concerned than ever with data center uptime. 

This presentation will focus on the causes and cost of downtime findings from the Ponemon Institute report on the frequency and causes of unplanned downtime and share best practices from organizations that excel at preventing costly outages of their critical facilities
