Virtualisation and cloud architecture has completely changed the nature of the data centre industry. Where once data centres were just cold rooms for your servers, today these important assets are the foundation on which dynamic and scalable IT services are built. This means that data centres and associated IT infrastructure needs to be built with flexibility, scalability and variable loads in mind whilst the delivery architecture needs to take into consideration the limitations and risks involved in 3rd party colocation and service providers compared to the cost and complexity of managing in-house assets with 20-25 year life cycles.

DatacenterDynamics Converged Melbourne 2012 will address the important issue of meeting business IT demands from both the IT and facility perspective. Our keynote speakers, solution providers and thought provoking panels will tackle the question of the optimal infrastructure mix to meet various IT demands as well as project how the widespread adoption of cloud architecture, big data and continues rising power prices will impact project planning and IT service deployment.

Following on from our highly successful annual conference in Sydney where we looked at the best ways of maintaining flexibility and scalability in your infrastructure, DCD Converged Melbourne will take a look a minimising downtime by exploring strategies to better manager facility level risks of cost, space, power and security by planning IT service that minimise stress on your available data centre assets.

Key topics:

DESIGN, BUILD,OPERATE:
Design, Build, Operate focuses on every part of the mission-critical facility lifecycle. From site selection and engineering design through to power availability and full data centre automation; this is a must attend event for any organisation embarking on a new data centre project or operating existing facilities.

OUTSOURCING DECISIONS:
For every decision to build a data centre there is one to outsource. From collocation to Platform-as-a-Service, from Software-as-a-Service, to building your data centre capacity in the cloud, what are the options most appropriate to your organisation? This conference theme explores an enterprise's strategic options for data centre outsourcing, weighing up the economic benefits, the risks and the performance characteristics against those of doing it yourself.

IT OPTIMISATION:
The efficiency of the facility is only half the equation – optimising all the systems that run within it is crucial: from processing to storage, to network to application. The ITO conference stream provides insight on how IT needs drive data centre strategy and how that impacts infrastructure requirements.

Who should attend?

DatacenterDynamics Melbourne 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.

 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.
