Solution Stage 2: Putting the “Y” in IoT

Bob Thronson, VP, Marketing & Business Development, Vigilent

The Internet of Things is big news.  However, in today’s data centers, many “things” generate information that is never analyzed, or only used for basic functions like anomaly detection.  This talk will explore what’s required for the IoT to create real economic value in mission critical environments.  Specific examples will be shared showing how the IoT can optimize cooling.

DCIM is Foundational to Software- Defined Infrastructures

Joe Reele, VP, Datacenter Solution Architects, Schneider Electric

Data Center Infrastructure Management is emerging as an essential augmentation of the software defined infrastructure (SDI) framework. This session examines integrating the IT stack with facilities infrastructure stack through DCIM, helping transform the data center to the true SDDC -- and a competitive tool for cutting time to market for IT services and improving profitability.

Minimizing Risk Through Innovative Predictive Services

Neil Tubman , National Business Development Manager, Siemens

Many data center operators risk failures and downtime as a result of a lack of predictive services associated with the reliability of their critical infrastructure equipment and systems. Operators need predictive services programs tailored to the unique MEP systems within their environment.  This session discusses a variety of approaches to comparative baselining and determining future equipment maintenance needs.

The Industrialization of the Data Center: Setting The New Standard

Herb Villa, Sr. IT Solutions Engineer, Rittal Corporation

The IT space has matured, yet, standardization is still hard to come by.  The core group of products – Termination, Network, Server/Storage share much in common. The process, however; is still unique for each site, leading to inefficiencies while hand-picking each component. Leaving the basic system approach behind, the Industrialization of the Data Center moves beyond selecting individual components, resulting in a comprehensive solution and incorporating products into one deliverable.

Green Data Centers

John Ford , VP, Sabey Data Centers

SME data center operators can now get the same enviable PUE traction that their larger enterprise counterparts can achieve through complete control of their IT and data center footprints. The right co-lo model that included affordable hot-aisle containment, smart air flow management and green energy efficiency best practices can save money, provide greater power flexibility whole delivering economies of infrastructure scale not otherwise available to the smaller operator.

The Need for Speed: FPGAs in the Data Center

John Lockwood, CEO, Algo-Logic Mike Strickland, Director, Strategic/Tech. Mktg., Altera

Programmable hardware enables operators of datacenters to scale up the performance of critical networking services.  In addition to deployment of additional CPU cores, operators are now also deploying Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) logic to lower latency, improve throughput, and decrease the energy required to operate their datacenters.  In this session, we see real applications in 10G to 100G networks where Gateware Defined Networking (GDN) solutions achieve 20x improvements.
