Registration and Breakfast in the Exhibit Hall

All-Conference Keynote: The Perfect Storm Intensifies - The Convergence of BigData, Cloud and the Internet of Things is Now at Full Strength

Mac Devine, VP/CTO, SDN & Innovation Services, Cloud Division (SoftLayer), IBM

Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity. Without bringing these three elements together via Systems of Discover you either end up with an Internet of something and/or a big mess of data.  


Interactive Workshop: Hands-on Holistic Data Center Design Clinic Featuring Belden Data Center Ready Solutions and Experts

Michael Salvador , Technical Solutions Manager, Belden

Understanding the technology that drives business today and preparing for the future requires a new approach to data center design. The holistic approach discusses the need for in-depth analysis of the data center to create an energy efficient, scalable, agile, and flexible design. This workshop provides displays and demos that will show how the cabling infrastructure fits into this approach as well as access to Belden's team of experts and the opportunity to get familiar with the Belden solutions within Fiber, Copper, and Infrastructure products.

This workshop is being held on the 5th floor in the Security + Risk Hall (Booth/Edison rooms).

Solution Stage 2: The Data Center Revolution- Simple is Better

Steven Carlini, Global Director of Data Center Solution Marketing, Schneider Electric

When it comes to designing, building, and operating mission-critical data centers, simple is better. Data centers are faster and more cost effective to build, and more reliable with lower total cost of ownership (TCO), when they start with a dramatically simplified design and build process that incorporates these elements: reference designs, pre-fabricated/modular architecture, and a design and build company that brings comprehensive capabilities into play with coordinated planning around software, operations, and service.

Solution Stage 1: Generator Paralleling Without a Master Control Panel

Thomas Vagts , Manager, Corporate Accounts, MTU Onsite Energy

MTU Generator control panels have the ability to parallel generators to each other and the utility.  No master control panel is necessary.  The MTU control panel (manufactured by Basler) uses a manager protocol to determine which controller is managing the system.  To further increase reliability, the controllers have redundant Ethernet connections for load sharing and communications.  The programmable logic allows the system to provide load control if the generators are over loaded or demand control to shut generators off when loads are low.
