Not too long ago data center facilities were designed for constant loads and steady availability, now they are dynamic. The transition from single tier, to multi-tier to dynamic tier. A good analogy is the transition from a planned economy to a market economy, in which changing data sets become the driving force.
Applications, hardware and physical infrastructure are following this rule: from servers that power down, to distributed applications, even to variable frequency drive fans. How will this affect how we plan for and build data center, taking into account all the component parts and their configuration?
DatacenterDynamics Atlanta 2011 gets to grips with design as it surges forward to catch up with 21st century demands and assesses the challenges and limitations of existing infrastructure.
"DCD has always had a very good blend of what we have to talk about right now, what we will be talking about next year, and what we should be talking about 5 years from now. It's that wide blend over a whole stack of things that really brings us back to DCD every year."
James Dow, CTO - CSTechnology
"I didn't know this show has been here a couple of years. I'm a little disappointed I haven't been able to join in the conference earlier, when it might have saved me a lot of time doing the investigative work we had to do to figure out where we need to go. It's a big time saver."
Wally Finley, Principal Data Center Architect - Expedia Inc.
DatacenterDynamics Atlanta is specifically designed to fill the knowledge and networking needs for both those responsible for the design, build an operation of IT facilities as well as key IT decision makers responsible for strategic decisions regarding capacity planning and technology investment.
Registered attendees of an event are able to access the majority of the material presented after an event. We are introducing a new system - PresentationPLAYBACK - which enables you to listen to a full sound recording of the session along with the PowerPoint and any associated movies in a single file.
You will therefore need to have a recent version of Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer in order to view them (Google Chrome Users need not worry about this, as it's pre-built-in). Although we now endeavour to record all presentations in this format, occasionally - for technical reasons beyond our control - it is not possible to fully capture all sessions; in such cases you will only be able to view a PDF.
To access PresentationPLAYBACK you must be signed into your account. Click on the MyDCD button on the top navigation panel which will take you to your personal homepage - on the right hand column you will find an area headed 'My Presentations'. Here are listed the conferences you have access to (see access and restrictions below). The links will take you to the programme page of that conference, and by clicking on a session you will be taken to the individual conference asset where you will find the feature. Alternatively you can navigate to the conference site you wish and acess the file directly from there - remember you must be signed in.
DatacenterDynamics Conference sessions with this feature available will display the PresentationPLAYBACK icon:
The player is simple to use. Click on the play button for automatic playback, or advance through the slides.
The conference presentations you can view depend on your membership level. Silver members only have access to those from the events they have actually attended, whilst Gold members have access to presentation materials from all our events around the world.
