Knowledge & Networking for Data Center Professionals

Key topics:

Whilst India represents the IT and business process outsourcing hub for the World, the question of reliability in the IT infrastructure realm is still a challenge. As businesses rationalise the resources involved in maintaining in-house data centre's against a fully outsourced IT strategy, the question that will ultimately be raised in the decision making process is “Will low cost out-weigh reliability?” when it comes to planning for IT driven business functions?

 

DCD Mumbai is the first conference to address this issue from both sides of the coin. Designed to accommodate both IT and Facilities Management professionals (as well as those with one foot firmly planted in both camps), DCD Mumbai will not only evaluate and provide important information about how to best develop an outsourcing strategy for your IT infrastructure, but also provide best practices on making the most of your existing data centre facilities in the face of unreliable power infrastructure, a climate that is not conducive to free cooling and the internal pressures to minimising the need for further capital outlay whilst meeting your business requirement.

Don't miss the first conference in 2011 to answer the question of why & how you should build out, co-locate or outsource your data centre to meet your company's insatiable demand for processing power.

Global Knowledge, Local Insight
In order to guarantee that our conference programs meet the needs of our audience, we have developed a methodology that we use across all DatacenterDynamics event locations that we call ‘Global Knowledge, Local Insight'. Prevailing market conditions, technology and business drivers differ from city to country to region. By engaging in rigorous market research and ongoing discussion with local markets we focus conference content on global topics that warrant most discussion and how they can be best framed in the local context. 

Each of our conference programs draws on an ever-growing pool of international industry experts, and is balanced with case-study material from local thought leaders. Our panels are renowned for their fusion of perspectives.

Our conference programs incorporate case studies and technical presentations on the following topics:
  • Renovation and retrofitting – Updating existing facilities to meet the demands of higher voltages, higher densities and their knock-on effects for data centre design
  • Examining the convergence of physical and logical management tools – How will dashboards enable better monitoring and prediction of future performance?
  • Exploring the use of capacity management and automation tools to fine tune data centre performance
  • A thorough assessment of the challenge of energy efficiency metrics use and how to turn information into insight
  • The impact of cloud computing and virtualisation on facility and IT infrastructure configuration
  • Modularity and scalability as the key to maximising ROI for future investment decisions
  • Meeting your organisation's data centre and infrastructure needs within a mixed-use facility
  • Exploring options for outsourcing – collocation and managed services
  • Exploring the use of capacity planning and automation tools to fine tune data centre performance

  • Capacity planning issues and determining hardware utilisation

 PresentationPLAYBACK

Viewing presentations after a DatacenterDynamics conference

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.
